Let's not go overboard here. He's still a kid, no matter how many lives he's taken. The solution is not to make an example out of him by sending him to the chair... That's not right. He's still a kid and may still have a chance at some great career opportunities.
The solution is stop talking crap about the issues going on and actually do something about it. I'm pretty sure I've said this before::: poverty creates misery, misery loves company, company creates chaos, chaos evolves into violence, violence equates to deaths. Don't talk about it, be about it. There are several different organizations that are trying to stop the violence. None of them are really getting the point to people quite like yourselves who sit and talk about the issues instead of standing against them, joining any one of these organizations and movements.
These kids need people that they can talk to... they need people that they can count on. These children (YES CHILDREN) need father and mother figures, mentors and supporters. They need support systems and realistic role models. They need places that are drug free, pressure free, violence free, gang free to hang out at. They need to be surrounded in positive and encouraging environments. Read Understanding a Framework for Poverty by Ruby K. Payne and you would understand why all of this is going on. When you finish reading that book, join a movement. Cease Fire Chattanooga is one of many.
@Rolando, who does that??? The whole snipping the spinal cord and sucking out the brain?????
I think it's more of the matter of doing their job and reporting the news... hence the job descriptions "News Reporter" and "Journalist". There is no "Why" the story because there is no reason for it. It was simply the troubled souls of the minorities solving an issue the way they've gotten used to doing now-- ending the life of someone else. Let's not get upset that the news is being reported, but that this is going on in the first place.....
