September 2, 2013

Vicious teenagers have been in the news from both Duncan, Okla., and Spokane, Wash. In Oklahoma, three boys, ages 15, 16 and 17, allegedly shot an Australian college student to death “for fun....

this is what you get when the parents fail to discipline their children. Then you have the other main problem and that is the laws that prevent the parents from discipline their children and the prosecutors refuse to prosecute these young hoodlums and just plea these young people down to minor violations and that allows those hoodlums to be back in the public to do the same thing all over again.

Now where is the outrage? Comments from Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson or President Obama? Any one of the boys in the article or below could also have been his son...

WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) — Neighbors near Kosciuszko Park in Wilmington expressed anger and outrage Friday, after learning the details of a brutal gang-rape that happened in the park Thursday.

Police say two women, ages 32 and 24, were reportedly attacked and sexually assaulted by a group of 10 to 12 black male juveniles in Kosciuszko Park at about 6:54 p.m. Thursday. According to police, the suspects, who range in age from 12 to 17-years-old, remain on the loose. It is a shame that the president is so racist that he one sides his comments. If he were not there would be a daily show that would fill his day and more reading all the names that were victims unjustly attacked most of them INNOCENT, COMPLETELY a VICTIM of crime, many times racially motivated. Fairness is not the message from the president, it is racism!

The thugs that robbed Rossbachs must have been bored from having a long weekend off from their jobs. They are either black or hispanic, well that narrows it down to the usual upstanding suspects who visit Gloversville for the peaceful downtown ambiance.

Those headlines are coming to our area soon. Maybe the next armed robbery ends up in a shooting. Maybe the next thug decides that they need grandpa's or grandma's wallet and hurts them. I'm not sure what the answer is but now is the time before it's too late.

Ron- Those thugs are the product of society rewarding those that make babies to gain more support. It's the product of chasing any male influence out of the house. Society made it acceptable and now like the farmer that plants weeds we are harvesting what we deserve. What a shame it really was a nice country.

There has been a severe breakdown of our society. Parents, teachers, etc... are not allowed to discipline children. Discipline at a young age has worked in society for thousands of years. Now after a couple of decades of "politically correct" behaviors, we are reaping what we have sown. In my opinion the United States was a much better nation pre-1960. These "thugs" need to be dealt with severely to send a message.

Ron1960 "this is what you get when the parents fail to discipline their children."

You assume they had Caring Parents or even know who they are.

WOW for once everybody is on the same page with the subject. Now if we could only get parents to stand behind teachers on discipline and the importance of good grades and education overall, maybe we can turn our once great country around. Even Hitler knew that things start with the children.

As my friends at Guns and Roses would say - Welcome to the Jungle.

These incidents also clearly point out one more thing. We are living in an ever more violent, entitlement society. It is the mindset of the losers, stop blaming the guns.

It would be interesting to study if the crime rate is correlated with a poor economy. I suspect that in a good economy, where everyone is working, people have less time for mischief. That said, people who are prone to crime need no excuse.

On right on cue, ToT turns this into an Obama issue even though this is a question as old as the laws themselves.

Obama turned it into an Obama issue by omitting a comment to any of these crimes. Why is his pick better than anyone else? Racist is racist no matter whose color you prefer.

swizzer your BFF Barry should have stayed out of the Treyvon issue. He opened the door, but just like Jesse and Al when the crime goes the other way they can't be found.

How could Trayvon Martin be worth presidential attention when the beating murder of an 88 year old World War II veteran gets nothing, not a word. Or a visitor from Australia or THOUSANDS of people that were completely innocent yet still attacked? Can you tell me that?

TiredOfTax, obama commenting on trayvon martin as a matter of opinion has NOTHING to do with the matter of fact that is these 'children' were roaming the streets with those criminal records.

nothing obama could have said or done could have prevented these monsters from roaming the streets to allow them to pounce on this man.

STOP YOUR NONSENSE ALREADY!

I think it is a break down of the family in a whole...There is no such thing as family anymore. You have women having children with four and five different men, which the men are not supporting the children, there is no teaching right from wrong or consequences for what you do wrong. Most of my friends who have come from parents that have never been married or divorced parents have or are in the middle of a divorce....Most of my friends who came from parents who are still maried, they themselves are still married and their children are in college. That has to account for something.

So, once again here goes rs trying to 'play' moderator. Do you really think another invented persona will be more successful than your last one??? Hardly. Obama promotes racism, black thugs have extrapolated his position into 'permission' and a self identified 'educated' person such as you claim to be cannot even reason that out!!! THAT, grasshopper, is the nonsense you alluded to.

Drugs, your statement 'Now if we could only get parents to stand behind teachers on discipline and the importance of good grades and education..etc.' was how our education system USED TO BE. Unfortunately, today's educators are nothing more than a bastion of mediocrity so don't expect any help from them.

usedto, there is a fine line between discipline and abuse that must be walked by parents.

BoB, your perception of the teachers as "a bastion of mediocrity' is, I believe, a result of having their hands tied for so long with the BS self-esteem thing, and not being able to discipline. Many are now nearing retirement and have become a bit like Pavlov's dogs. And the young teachers are stuffed full of ideology that they can't see reality through their rose colored glasses.

AND MrBob, a return to the way it used to be would certainly correct the situation -- and a whole bunch of other problems in society today - but that is another bunch of discussions on a few different topics - 'nuff said

My opinion is that with the strength of the teachers union they could put enough pressure on our legislators to get the discipline issue fixed. Why is it that we seldom hear about truant officers getting the kids that just do not bother to go to school and get them back in school and go after the parents to make sure the kids do go to school?

Ron1960, everything today is about $$$ - there is no money to be made enforcing that issue and truant officers wouldn't be able to do the job like the old days. "C'mon, get in the car, you're going to school" - "No I ain't and you can't make me" grab the little twerp by the arm and you have an abuse lawsuit.

and Ron, the union doesn't really care about classroom issues like discipline. Class size would be the only issue on their docket, and the legislators kids are never a problem in class - "I'll tell my father, you'll see"
