And it dosen't help when a player on the University of Utah football team
flashes a gang sign during the Alabama BCS game. Very disrepectful to the
University, the taxpayers, his family, and himself. Childish actions by a
Wasted lives will continue to accumulate because we don't enforce immigration
laws and we have become so "multicultural" that assimilation is no longer
expected.Our greatest institutions are now run by globalist elites who no
longer have any great affinity for the United States but rather consider
themselves citizens of the world.These elites run our companies,
universities, schools, media outlets, churches, and (sadly) government.Their view of our country is far different from the one most citizens hold.
Its obvious our kids are wanting something from us, which is attention their not
getting it from home so they will look somewhere else for it. It will all go
back to where we came from HOME. When the kids can be distroyed the family is
corrupted. Come on parents lets do our duty, so these officers don't have to do
it for us.
In my mindIt is a question just who is gang members?Kids or the
copsJust being honestCops working the streets day and nightThey are not representing the public
Until the law abiding people of the United States and it's "governing leaders"
call these punks what they really are, TERRORISTS, you will never be safe.It's time to do away with these domestic terrorists.
THE ILLEGALS COME TO OUR COUNTRY AND THEY FEEL SAFE AND DONT WANT TO LEARN OUR
ENGLISH LANG. WE GIVE THEM ALL THE HELP THEY NEED AND STILL DONT WANT TO BE
AMERICANS AND LEARN TO SPEAK ENGISH, PROBLEMS ARRIVES WITH GANGS AND MANY OTHER
THINGS .. WE NEED TO CHANGE THAT AND BE MORE FAIR AND REASONABLE FOR THEM TO
TAKE ENGISH LANG. BY LAW...ANY ILLEGALS THAT COME TO OUR COUNTRY AND WANT TO
STAY , THEY MUST LEARN ENGISH AND BECOME US CITIZENS,IF THEY WANT TO STAY
HERE...IF WE GO TO THEIR COUNTRY , THEY ARENT GONNA HELP US... WE ARE FORCE TO
LEARN THEIR LANG.WE MUST DO THE SAME FOR OUR COUNTRY AND PROTECT OUR FUTURE
CHILDRENS AND GRANDCHILDRENS FUTURE..THE ILLEGALS ARE TAKING OVER OUR COUNTRY
BECAUSE WE GIVE THEM TOO MUCH ...CHANGE THE SYSTEMS AND BE MORE STRICT WITH
ILLEGLS..WHO KNOWS ONE OF THEM MAY BE TERRORIST!!!!!! SAVE US SAVE OUR
COUNTRY..WE WERE HERE FIRST!!!!!!
Perhaps they are reaching out for more from their parents. But until the
community has the guts to stand up to these punks and say enough is enough, the
problem will continue. It is interesting this story focuses on the problem with
immigrants. Are they true immigrants or criminal immigrants (others say illegal
immigrants, but if illegal that does make them criminal.). If they are criminal
immigrants we need as a nation to begin cracking down harder. If true
immigrants we need to help the assimilate into our society better.
I never thought about it like that. But you are absolutely correct. They are
terrorists. They don't care who gets in their way to promote their agenda.
Very well said.
To Gang Members:What a brilliant comment.How long did it
take for you to think this garbage up?
I didn't realize gang members could join the Marines. That explains a lot,
right out and say it in the article, but it insinuates that many (if not most)
of the gang members mentioned are hispanic. Maybe, just maybe, if the laws of
this country were enforced, to send people back to their home country that are
in this country illegally, much of this gang activity would go away.It seems to be popular culture south of the border to belong to a gang. When
those people come to this country, they bring that culture, and the crime, with
them.Just another reason to build a fence along our southern border.
you have to blame parents kids need to be in some sort of activity .you do as a
family and you will be a family. keep in sports or anything .if you know whats
going on yhey can"t lie.
Tell me again how illegal immigration is not a problem? Whoever called the cops
gang members, how do you come up with that stuff?
To Gang MembersYou are just a bunch of little kids that can't
stick up form them selves.If someone wanted pissed you off, you
wouldn't do anything if you were by your self, you would get the whole gang on
this on person. you are pretty tough arn't ya :(
The legislature should be praised for its efforts to enact anti-gang
legislation. As a society, we must do everything possible to eradicate the gang
problem before it gets any bigger. Parents must accept responsibility as well.
It is inconceivable that the mother in this story had no idea her son was in a
gang--despite the fact that his body was covered in easily recognizable gang
So we should send all the non-natives home? Unless you are a Native American
(Indian), you do not get to stay. So all you children of immigrants (both legal
and otherwise) need to leave now. Serious now, learning English is
a first step to feel less marginalized (and Utahize does not count) If it were
true that learning English will solve everything then by that point of view,
those white, tattooed, low rider jean wearing individuals who can scare the
bejeses out of anyone who encounters them on a dark street, are a Boy Scout
troop cleaning up (any victims wallets).
We should not spend taxpayer money on gangs, let them kill each other off. If
they step out of their gangs and kill innocent people, shoot them on the spot.
This is ridiculous to spend a fortune in police protection, court costs, and
jail facilities on gangs that just want to kill each other. Let them do it.
Step up citizens, if you see any of this activity and don't want to get
pesonnally involved, at least make a call to law enforcement. I know many, many
people that would like to line these punks up without weapons and have a good
old fight fest. Then we would see just how tough these supposedly big littles
Several years ago I volunteered at the Food and Coalition Center in Utah. Most
Hispanics threw food on the floor, peed on the floor of the restrooms, took huge
garbage bags of clothing full to the brim. After I helped clean the kitchen on
my way home I rounded a corner and saw where these illegals put up a cultural
hall table and displayed ALL THE CLOTHING THEY HAD COLLECTED TO SELL indirectly
as a 'yard" sale! What's next? They proclaim their "rights" to live here, work
here, but intolerantly and defiantly will not learn our language, nor pledge
allegiance to our American flag? I do love cultural differences, however this is
intolerable for our country. We as Americans are too considerate, generous and
have been tolerant of these gangs that wish to destroy our freedom. They have
NO freedom in their own countries! Most don't have laws that govern them. Been
there to see for myself.
I think if it is really that bad.. let's just put a fence around every area that
the gangs hang out. That way we don't need jail facilities..just clean up crews
when the fight is done.
Our Americans have put up with too many radical gang related destruction. Our
youth are being introduced to experiment with these brain dead non-virtues.
Parents that spend time with their kids making every hour a blessing to both
parties reap the rewards. It starts when children are babies. It's NOT just the
Hispanics that are to blame. If we Americans don't stand up to our rights and
freedoms taking the time to defend our liberties, country, families, we may lose
the comforts of HOME! It's truly worth taking a stand and putting on the whole
armor of God!
These punks don't work out physically, why does anyone think they are so tough.
Bring them on, they just need to get the crap beat out of them a few times and
this will stop. I personally would like to take a few on, to prove this. Just
let them know that they are not wanted and run them right out of the country.
Those that are legal citizens go to a TENT city. End of story.
It's good to see that the Latino community is getting into the BYU Utah rivalry.
All that being in a gang means is that you show to society that you are
worthless. You can't stand up for yourself.
The comments that Gangs are the result of illegal immigration are ignorant at
best. Gangs come in all colors and ethnicities (White, African American, Asian,
Latino, Native American, etc.). It just happens that the group interviewed in
this segment were Latino.Gangs originate for many reasons, but to really
simplify things, poverty and family dysfunction are the primary factors. These
two factors feed off each other - poverty exacerbates greater family dysfunction
and the family dysfunction perpetuates poverty. I applaud the efforts of
police and the SALT program for preventing gang involvement. Programs that work
to strengthen families are critical. Isn't it amazing that only half of the
parents suspect their kids are in gangs? Parenting education and family support
needs to be seriously enhanced. Efforts to promote greater levels of education
and income among the parents and youth are critical to break these cycles. Building more fences at the border and more prisions are not the best answer
for the long term. Practically all men in prison are fathers (2 million in the
US). We need to think more proactively and prevent gang involvement or the
cycle will simply go on and on for many generations.
The gang issues in Salt Lake are sad. What is troubling is the attitude those
outside of the city have, thinking that it is an inner-city problem. It
stretches far beyond. Drive around the vicinity of Skyline High School, a
neighborhood in a "nice" area of town and you'll find tagging. Not just the
obvious traffic signs and concrete taggings by Parley's Canyon, but also through
the neighborhoods right by the school. Glendale parents send their students
to schools such as Skyline and Cottonwood in hopes that they escape the
lifestyle, and who could blame them? But a lot of these students bring that
mentality to the new school. When South High closed, I was a junior at
Highland. We received some students from Glendale. I remember my friends and I
being enamored by the gang lifestyle. I suspect it may still be the same way.
It would seem to solve things to let them all fight it out to the death. Only
problem is they are usually horrible shots. Just like in the incidents the
article mentioned only one out of the five situations did the gang member hit
his target. Its the only reason they are still around.
Well, guess what? Spanish speaking people lived in the west before anglos came.
New Mexico and California were both populated with Spanish first, and through
land grabs their land was taken away from them.There are many free
programs here in the valley for Spanish speakers to learn English, and they are
attending these classes. By the way, from your post, we can all
tell your English isn't so great.
My youngest brother has become active in gangs, and it's really put a face on
the issue for me. I don't think seeing him as a terrorist would solve anything.
I realize he is the product of his choices, but I just wish he had more
direction when he was growing up. I don't think discipline alone can accomplish
much, without guidance and direction during the teen years. He has never known
what options are out there, other than minimum wage jobs and partying with
friends, and now I worry that he's so entrenched in bad habits that only the
prison system or the army could give him the direction he needs. The
programs described in this article are doing great things. Give a 13-year old a
little direction and it will cause everyone a lot less grief in the future,
whether they be illegal or not. Sure, let's work on ironing out our immigration
policies in the long run, but there are some easier things we can be doing right
now--and I don't think that involves beating the crap out of them; it never did
much for my brother.
packing, look what is happening in phoenix, and here in utah there exists cells
..but what really bothers me is that we enable them...by hiring illegals..over
americans.who are in rehab..from felonies..long..ago while the illegals are
committing felonies by being here and get the jobs!!ENOUGH!!!
So...What stupid gang do you claim? Only someone as insolent and stupid as a
gang banger would make such a comment.Lets not use faux distractors
such as this to take the heat off of where it belongs.
I saw Westside story. It's been going on longer than you realize, or care to
admit. Micheal Jackson even glorified it in "Beat it". Although technically you
are correct, Latino's make up the largest ethnic group, and for good reason,
many of these gangs have ties to those in Mexico that are currently waging war
with their government. It's a way of life in that country, and when
they come here legally or illegally they bring the culture with them.
Violence is not the answer. It starts with a community helping each other,
regardless of race. Its not just Latinos. Gangs of white race are much more
dangerous and covert then other racial gangs. Its not just illegal immigrants
either. Become a mentor. Volunteer at a school. Start coaching a youth sports
team. Do something pro-social.
Pretend that you have some desire to know the truth. Use Google.Illegal immigrants are the source of SLC's rise in gangs and gag-crime in the
last 10 years.What is wrong with the deniers?These gangs
are a terror to society and the communities the exist in. They prey on
everyone, native-born, immigrant - legal and illegal.Get real!
I am sure gangs are not a direct result of illegal immigration. But, I do think
the problem is much worse in large part due to the influence of illegal
immigration. The fact the kids in the stories are illegal is not because the
reporter sought out illegals, it is because there are so many gang members are
The mother of this punk had no clue he was in a gang. Most likely because she
has been cow towed by the gang itself. Or she just doesn't have a clue, which
is the case with most parents of kids in a gang. I saw no reference to a father
in this article.Round them all up, take them to the bottom of the
Bingham Canyon mine and let them have a big rumble there. That way they can
kill each other and no one else gets hurt. The employees just vacate the mine
and the cops guard all the entrances.
C.LNelson and Haters: I am ashamed to see traces of my church in your postings.
Put on the armor of God? You are a DISGRACE to the church, your intolerance is
no different that what our pioneers endured when persecuted. Let me be clear, I
am equating your hatred and intolerance and NOT the group that it's directed
toward. To put all Hispanics, label them and HATE them as you do is the complete
opposite of what our church teaches. Forgiveness, love, virtues of the beautiful
message we should LIVE, not just on SUNDAYS.I DO NOT condone these gang
activities. Please don't just hate a people, call them all Illegals and issue an
outright extermination or deportation order, remember Boggs? I am a
Hispanic; that came to this country. I am an American now, I love this country,
I speak its language, yet I feel hated by people like you, people I might see on
Sunday. WE ARE NOT ALL THE SAME. May I remind you: Inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Now then
talk about the armor of God.
"Wasted lives will continue to accumulate because we don't enforce immigration
laws and we have become so "multicultural" that assimilation is no longer
expected"I totally agree to the above comment.But I can
tell some readers and posters have never lived in L.A. Calif. If you had, you
would be viewing this with your eyes wide open. If you lived long enough.Salt Lake is just now experiencing the beginning of becoming the new Los
These guys are dumber than a box of rocks. And why do they all speak spanish?
Kind of weird, you would think most of them are from mexico or something.
Of all the different factors that contribute to gang activity, poverty is the
greatest particularly in the case of Hispanics. When immigrants leave their
native county, it is nearly always for economic reasons not sociological ones
(the same can be said for why illegal immigration is permitted). In fact many
immigrants are well respected in the communities they come from, and often times
hold jobs or positions of importance. Their education is better suited for life
in the native county and of course speaking the primary language is huge
advantage for them. In economic terms, there is a cost/benefit that occurs when
immigrants come to this county. The benefit greater financial security, but
with a huge glass ceiling. The cost both parents usually have to work minimum
wage jobs, learning English is almost impossible for adults and elderly,
children go unsupervised, and parents are unequipped to help with school
matters (see high drop-out rates for Hispanics). So who do immigrant kids hang
out with? Usually those that they feel most comfortable with - other Hispanics
that have little or no structure. Thus the cost of immigrating, particularly for
undocumented immigrants, to the US almost always outweighs the potential
Everybody - and particularly young folks - long to belong. Whether it be a
family, an athletic team, cub scouts or boy scouts, chess club, etc. A strong
family is a natural place for kids, but it's not there for all kids. If they
don't "fit in," or are rejected from other social organizations, they will form
alliances with other rejects, and the results are obvious and painful.It's easy to turn our backs on them, and if it weren't for "collateral damage"
- the harm they bring on society - that wouldn't be such a bad option. But we
should all give props to ANYBODY who's striving to provide a wholesome
alternative for these at-risk kids, before it's too late.(And
gangstas DO come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Anybody who thinks otherwise
needs to pay more attention.)
california,what university of utah player are you talking about. I
watched the whole game and didn't notice anything.
The mother knew nothing about it? And then said that he wasn't doing that any
more. Come on, I've seen so many latinos (or whatever) claim ignorance
about nearly everything (especially the law) just because they don't speak
english. This is nothing more than a sheild to hide behind. She knew; and his
little smirk was a "you can't do anything about it" attitude.
Need learn speak english | 7:38 a.m English is a proper noun. Proper nouns are
capitalized in English. You wrote using run on sentences. Many of us could learn
more about English.I also believe many American should study
languages like Spanish. This would give you an application of how difficult
learning a new language can be for people. If you don't speak
English saying "turn right here." is a conundrum.
How is illegal behavoir, ie. entering the USA without legal permission, and/or
overstaying the timeframe of a legal entry document, well LEGAL?The
law is intolerant of those who break it, those who act illegally. That is why a
law is passed - to no longer tolerate behavoir that is deemed a danger to the
community of law-abiding.To enforce laws, to support laws, to demand
that laws be enforced - al this is responsible civic, virtuous, behavoir.One can, of course, petition, work for a change to a law. However,
until and if and only if such a change is enacted and signed into law, one must
obey the existing law, or suffer the consequences for breaking it.If
gang members are not in the USA legally, then they are illegal immigrants,
period. It doesn't matter what their country of origin is.If the
predominant composition of gangs is Hispanic illegal immegrants, then the
reality is that they are illegal immigrants with ethnicity defined by the
imprecise, but commonly used term - Hispanics.That is reality,
period. Try reality - you may not like it, but so what?
I personally know two gang members here in California. Both work for the same
company as I. When I asked them why they chose to be in a gang their response
was surprising. The oldest brother immigrated from Mexico (the youngest brother
sadly followed in big brothers shoes). They told me that BEFORE they leave
Mexico they are assigned to a gang. Depending on which part of Mexico they come
from, North or South, will be the deciding factor of whether they belong to the
Cryps or the Bloods. They believe they have to belong to a gang for safety once
they cross US soil in order to stay alive. Sadly the hispanic culture gives
themselves no choice but to belong to these....yes terroristic...organizations.
They have fooled themselves into thinking there are no alternatives. Any
siblings born after crossing the border will automatically be in the gang.
So...if this nation wants to curb its gang activity then something needs to be
done about immigration. It's a national security problem that should be dealt
with by Homeland Security. As for the parents not knowing their kids are gang
The problem is with immigrant parents. They are shy and most Latinos are VERY
family oriented. I'll bet this mother did know and was in denial. She did not
want the shame to come to her family that this kind of thing can bring.
good work, keep it up. Especially the education part and letting the families
know what's up.
The gang bangers are terrorists that need to be locked up. Would we allow a
known terorist to walk around waiting for them to do something?
I lived near Compton, CA where gang violence was common. Gang-banging is
prevalent where the influence in the home is not strong and positive. Gangs
thrive because of a need that the home or community lacks. When a gang bullies
in, others form to protect themselves from each other (and white gangs are just
as much of a problem!). Those who are weak often join or become prey. Sadly, the
innocent are not immune from the scars of gang violence. How do you prevent it
once it has infested your neighborhood? SALT is a good start, but neighborhood
watch programs need to be active and ALL neighbors need to work together. It's
too late to throw blame - bigotry and prejudice is a big part of the cause! But
it's not too late to be part of the solution. My neighborhood in L.A. became a
safe place to live in again, but it took everyone getting involved, knowing our
neighbors, and making them ALL feel part of our neighborhood family. It WILL
take time, but isn't it worth it? Love your neighbors no matter what color or
ethnicity and work together...or move out!
We are back to the old argument of what to do with a cancer in our society. For
once, let's step up to the plate and go after this with a purpose. The truth is
most law enforcement agencies know who the gang members are. It's time we go
after these people with the purpose of cutting them out of society. Open up and
put a bounty on the heads of the gang leaders and watch a few of them drop. Make
the gang environment so dangerous that no one wants to be associated because its
"shoot on site" and ask questions later. Give law enforcement the freedom to
clean this out. Try it before you trash the idea. It might work very well.
That part cracked me up. So typical - they think they're being smart and those
outside the gang are too stupid to get it. And for some reason it's OK for them
to diss outsiders (reporters, cops, etc.) but if someone disses them, they come
out en masse with guns blazing.This whole thing reminds me of a
quote from Golda Meir about the situation in the Middle East. She said, and
I'll paraphrase to make it applicable to the gang situation, "There will be
peace in the Middle East (or LA or Kearns or Glendale or Rose Park...) when the
Arabs (or the gang-bangers) love their own children (or their fellow gang
members) more than they hate ours."Until gang bangers are willing to
GIVE as much respect - or street cred or whatever the catch word is now - as
they hope to GET, this will continue to be a problem. They need to realize that
life is not about making ME happy, it's about me doing what I can to make OTHERS
For those that want to reduce gang participation by illegal immigrants to a few
specific things, as well as the remedy thereof, may want to consider the
following:There is an economic and sociological cost/benefit to illegal
immigration. The US government allows illegal immigration because the economic
benefits outweigh adverse sociological ones. They are aware of the downside but
maintain the status quo because it provides cheap labor. The US is extremely
self-serving. It never comes off on the losing side of economics that is why it
is the most powerful county on earth. And it is also why it is driven by
economics. If illegal immigration werent profitable it would have been stopped
long ago. Which state has largest GDP? California. Illegal immigrants by in
large, migrate to the US for one reason employment. Though they may consider
some of the sociological adversities before migrating, ultimately finding steady
employment is most important. Once here reality sets in minimum wage or limited
earning potential, no parental supervision, low graduation rates, gang
participation, increased poverty, language challenges and so on and so forth.
Therefore gang participation by illegal Hispanics is based on economics more
than anything else.
one word - Gadianton.
I moved away from SO-CAL to rid myself from this dirt, now they are in Utah?
Where do I go now? Better yet, take back our streets,pass anti-gang laws, and
lock up the scum. Trust me, they don't go away...
When I was growing up, we had a Mexican gang in our neighborhood and they would
beat up our neighbors and break into people homes and rob them for their kicks.
My families home was broken into 3 times before they were all finally caught by
the police and throw in prison. Now for the real kicker, they committed all of
these crimes with their parents PERMISSION, because their parents made more
money hocking off the loot that was stolen, than they could make on welfare.
The parents didn't want to work, or be productive in our neighborhood. The only
way that we got rid of them was by working with the police and making their
lives so miserable, that they all moved away, or were thrown in prison. Most of
them died in prison, but you can't tell me that the parents of these current
gang bangers don't know, because I bet they are the formation of the gangs to
there are plenty of Americans who put the same effort in doing good rather than
bad ...regardless of eco- socio crap as mentioned...I am a native american who
came up the hard way but one thing rings true!! the forefathers of all legals ,
blacks whites, bled for this country...we don't cry about it...and as far as
illegal giving cause to economics...I want my sons and daughters to reap what
this country has to offer..the right way...ship these people back as they don't
belong here anymore than I do in MEXICO!!...Start with the HOMELESS
SHELTER...there you see...the aftermat of so many having it good, then go down
to the social service, schools , emergency rooms, while one of my sons lies in
the cemetary because he gave his all for our homeland right here...let these
people go...they trample over the rights of real Americans and act arrogant as
heck wheter serving burgers or waiting in line at the western Union...then try
to get a job , where they are the majority and you know where you fit in right
off...The Law is not for Sale!
I especially enjoyed your comment. Gang members can diss society, but once
society disses gang members, the gangs throw a "fit" of drive-by shootings and
other nonsensical violence. Gangs are ridiculous b/c they feel like
they are entitled to something. Cut off the gangs by enacting harsh
penalties in our criminal statutes. Make it a felony to belong to a gang,
Just show your sorry face around where we live and you'll regret the day you
were born. We don't put up with anybodys' BS here!!
We need to re-write some laws so society can exterminate these gang-bangers from
our streets. These new laws would eliminate the need for lawyers and court time
to deal with the scum that belong to gangs. We could then clean up our
neighborhoods and reclaim the communities we live in without the threat of
drive-bys and other low life activity. Oh by the way, Star Chamber was a movie
that dealt with this kind of a theory. It would work!
I just want to applaud the efforts of these officers, the dedication and
sacrifices they make to try and help these kids while protecting all of us is

The Mexican president dictates our immigration laws. All the time big-mouth
Jorge Bush was thumping his chest proclaiming what hard work it is protecting
the American people, the borders were/are wide open for these vermin to cross
back and forth. Its time to close the borders and enforce our laws rather than
reward illegal immigration by providing health care, schooling, and entitlements
that they havent earned. CLOSE THE BORDER NOW!
The UofU looked real bad on national TV with the gang signs. We are sorry to be
associated with the Utes.
I did not see the gang signs from the Utes at the Sugar Bowl. I saw some
players make a 'U' with their hands, but what did I miss?
that the drug cartels just below our southern border has killed over 7000 people
in 2008? Is anybody up in arms over this or even nervous yet. The entire Iraq
war has killed about 4200 US soldiers over a 7 year period. There are about
100,000 drug cartel soldiers ready to challenge the Mexican government and
ANYBODY else that gets in their way, right next to our border. If we really need
to pull out of Iraq, I know right where we can send them. Our southern border is
in deparate need of a military presence ASAP! Also these gang bangers are really
just a part of the drug cartels infiltrating into our society. Can anybody else
see this! Are the politicians just too busy with precious earmarks to react to
this obvious problem?
This story is just why we need SB81 to become law this year. we must fight
against Illegals. Look at the boarder see what's going on, stop them now or it's
coming home to roost in your back yard!
Let Energy Solutions store these gang members in one of there facilities.
Amen brother, Amen!
Gangs have been around 100's of years, nay thousands of years. Tribes of all
races banded together for safety and eventually they became cultured society.
The Greeks, Romans, Goths, Huns, Mongol Hordes, Aztecs, Mayans, Egyptians, etc.
To think that this is a new problem is ridiculous. The gangs of NY, the KKK,
White Supremacists, and you think that the Mob is just a criminal organization?
Get real. Yes gangs are a sad commentary on our civilization. Yes, grief and
sorrow follow, but to ship them out, line them up against the wall and shoot
them, are all just knee jerk reaction to the problem. Poverty is no excuse to
join a gang. Lack of a family environment is the prevailing excuse and yet
plenty of people rise above their circumstances to lead productive lives in
spite of their surroundings. Education is the real answer. Intelligence and
learning cry out against this form of terroristic activity. Yes the immigrant
should learn our language as well as our laws. And we should be more civilized
neighbors and help them rather than stand idly by and watch the horror show. We
all need to join the human family.
50% of the parents do not know that their kids are in gangs? Talk about denial.
Parents of gang members should go to jail or be deported along with their gang
member children!Parents HAVE to parent. You don't know your kid is in a
gang? Do you talk to your child at all? Do you care what your child grows up
to be, if he or she grows up? No excuses. Everybody works. Stop making excuses
for your kid. Stop believing their lies because it's what you want to hear.
Because then you don't have to deal with it. And give your kid some quality
time. I'd take quality over quantity any day. Enjoy your children. Thank you police officers.
Gangs are the real threat to America. It's unfortunate that some people feel
more threatened by gays and lesbians wanting to legally marry.
One thing that attracts gang members are crowds, when picking a fight there must
be a crowd, they need a audience. Its the attention there looking for. These
gang members or anyone looking to be in one have very LOW SELF ESTEEM. A real
man is one that can stand alone against all these bad things and say I will not
be involved in such childish acts.
how self rightous blogger can get when they're behind a keyboard
Let's hope you aren't accused of being in a gang or have evidence planted on you
