I wonder if this will make future family reunions just a wee bit awkward...hhhmmmm?
I taught briefly at one of the fine innercity schools in Chattanooga and learned a valuable lesson: Never demand responsible behavior and accountability. Call the kids' homes for help to control their kids? Their parents probably needed it worse than the misbehaving students. What do you expect? We are indeed reaping what we sow.
Sometimes we're too kind in trying to be politically correct...which, by the way, is definitely not working. What's wrong with getting aggressive and "ruin" the gangs' infrastructures/hierarchies before they do even more damage to what was once a fun city to raise a family. Don't you love what is happening to our city before our very eyes? Shame on us if we allow it to continue without having stiffer penalties for these hoodlums and locking them away. They definitely don't belong on the loose. Got to love that "victim mentality" which tries to explain away why these punks act the way they do.
