  1. I believe these kids need better training… They are horrible shots! Too many assholes are wounded, and too many innocents are killed by stray bullets. The education system should teach them marksmanship …. Teach them how to aim so that the drug dealing assholes they are trying to shoot end up dead… No more wounded assholes… Put them out!

      “The education system should teach them marksmanship … ”

      I would say “schooling,” but thanks for the chuckle. Just think of the educracy the capital S State could create, fund; how many pre-retirees they could hire to administer a program spanning from BB guns in 3d grade to AKs in 8th grade.

  2. It was said only partly tongue and cheek. Think about all the kids who grow up hunting and have guns in their homes but have been taught gun safety etc… You rarely do these kids use a weapon to solve a problem. They are taught to respect a gun…

      Yep, all that and … self defense, personal protection.

      Me, in my turn, and my kids in their turn, and now my grands are tuning up at my house with my (yes, my) official Red Ryder carbine action two-hundred shot range model air rifle (h/t A Christmas Story)! Seven (started at 4 1/2) and 3 1/2 years olds are pretty handy with it.

      I think I carried my dad’s WWII 15 shot carbine in the snow deer hunting when I was 10 maybe, after working through his plinking rifle and such, and on the way to the German 8mm infantry rifle he picked up in the Ardennes Forest. Now, bad guys beware coming through my front door uninvited.

    Hey Kilroy, how many cops that weren’t hired because Curly is funding his future career in government schooling (not education) at the expense of 20-and-out-at-43 cops would have been needed to preclude what happened THIS time?

    And what ever happened to the “100,000 cops on the street” our own Village Idiot supposedly mustered when he was still in the Senate?

  4. The issue really is education. obvioulsy these criminals are illiterate or they would be reading all the newspaper reports showing how the gov and mayor are getting tough and will stop the crime. if they could read they would have obviously given up on their lives of crime

  5. So the kid that was killed and those shot the next day and the shooters of said kids…does anyone want to speculate how well they would do on the smarter balance test this spring? I believe they will look at question 1 on the computer screen and utter a two word response…those two words… The first rhymes with DUCK and the second rhymes with TO….

  6. It’s cool to be a thug. Good luck changing that. Lyrics from the very popular Wiz Khalifa Juicy J.
    “Uh-huh; shootin’ on site nigga try me if you wanna
    Click click bang bang – nigga you a goner
    Bullet don’t hit ya, it’ll put you in a coma
    Loud mouth niggas, now you a doner
    Whole pint of purp and a lot of marijuana
    Chrome’d out 38 hot like the summer
    Walk up on you whiskey maskin’ punk
    And fire them shots just like I’m Donald Trump
    Big ass pistol got me walkin’ and I’m limpin’
    Fuck you and fuck your clique, anybody can get it
    Don’t do all that talkin’, nigga let’s shoot to the finish
    They won’t find your body and I won’t leave a witness”

    • I’m not saying rap is the cause. My kids love this music. I’m saying people have a need to belong somewhere, anywhere. If your environment is that you are surrounded by violence and THUG life, then it’s pretty predictable, isn’t it?

    • A real cultural icon with a real upstanding message. Nice. There isn’t any glorification of violence there. Nope. Not a bit.

      Its all the segregationist,elitist and racist parents fault for why gangsta is cool.

      But do they hear it? Say ‘no,’ please, mom. “Love” implies a drastic misunderstanding of the world we live in.

      Haven’t heard from ’em lately, so I guess Eve and pandora and the lot are busy elsewhere, so I’ll say it for them;

      “Of course it isn’t the cause, Pmom, rap is but one of many results of the oppression and absence of equity these poor souls are caught up in.”

    • If they didn’t hear it, I wouldn’t have known the name Wiz Khalifa, or I at least wouldn’t have known about his lyrics, would I? Do you know him? 🙂
      My youngest no. But I have a twenty year old and an almost 17 year old, how would I control (or even always know) what they listen to? They are at an age of figuring out who they are and check out various paths, and where they belong. My worries are usually around them possibly getting into trouble or getting hurt while they are finding themselves. Which is why I tried to cushion those paths by putting them into schools that I felt were safe. Which, contrary to what some people on here think, doesn’t mean I am sheltering them from the world.
      I do know my older kids listen to rap, (and lots of other music too, they love Jason Aldean! 🙂 )
      They tell me a lot of things, including music choices, because they know they don’t have to hide things from me. If I forbid something like music choice, they would most likely want to do it even more, and they would hide it from me. Ever see a kid with really strict rules? They are the wild crazy ones, lol, my kids are pretty laid back actually.

      Maybe all of that is wrong, as far as parenting. I don’t know. I do the best I can. That’s why I wanted schools that are able to actually enforce rules. I liked the extra help in guiding their paths.. enforcing dress code rules, homework rules, discipline rules, being respectful, etc

  7. I’m confused,….. the parents that choose to avoid the city, that choose to find places to live that don’t have this type of violence, that simply want their kids to go to school in a safe environment, that have the where with all to recognize the behavioral disturbances are detrimental to education, are racists, segregationists, and elitists.

    You, who have posted it, know exactly who you are.

    Is there something I’m missing from the ongoing narrative that gets posted here routinely? The parents should be completely willing to accept this type of behavior as cultural diversity and that in order to resolve the problem, should pony up more of their money to facilitate more “cultural diversity” be spread throughout all the districts via “choiced preferential busing”.

    No doubt, the parents/ children that live in the city who are “responsible”, don’t won’t the violence and dysfunction either but please tell me how education and educators are supposed to do that in an environment where there is a high percentage of it. Magic fairy dust? Personal and financial reDistribution isn’t going to do it either.

      Oh, my. M. Surely you know that the only reason financial redistribution hasn’t worked is because it hasn’t been tried -enough-. If you, for example, were less greedy and more forthcoming with yours, well, there just might be enough for them.
