Mike Check 1,2,3...Can't even believe some of these ignorant comments that are being posted about this story. What is the point of bringing up how many kids they have...yes it's 5 get over it!! The bigger picture is this, when people cant help themselves it's up to the community to help them. It's a shame race has been thrown into the mix when it comes to an issue such as this. "Let the thugs kill themselves"...what kind of person would even say such a thing, because guess what..when the thugs are done killing themselves the problem still would remain unsolved...it's a continuous cycle and the cycle is what should be stopped. And in order to do that, it starts with us...people that arent in these horrible situations that can speak up and out for those who dont have the same voices as we do and provide them with the power to make better CHOICES. Knowledge is and always will be power....so before you can go and judge people on their circumstances, it's highly recommended that you educate yourself before beginning to open your mouth and start by trying to walk a mile in someone elses shoes for once. And not to mention the slap on the hand that most of the criminals are getting now a days...we need to take a look at our judicial system as well. So before you begin to point the finger at someone else, ask yourself are you stepping up to the plate to help the situation and since you pay your TAXES is your hard earned money being used properly to prevent the cycle from continuing?
