Duh;)

At Gwynns Falls Elementary, 82 percent of its students are low income and 30 are homeless.

I know I am old school....but when my wife and I got married WE KNEW we couldn't afford kids at that time. So we took 'precautions'....like precautions that you can buy right next to the blunts at any 7-11.

But we have functional brain cells. :lol:

What sucks... is the kids get the short end of the stick....society gets the short end of the stick....and the baby manufacturers go on their merry way.  :mad:

 The breakdown of the family unit in the inner city is the reason.

Who says they aren’t? It’s a multi prong approach. You have to treat the illness and the symptoms of it simultaneously.

Well.....they had better find a new Dr......cause the one they are using is a quack. 

t doesn't take a village to raise a child, unless you want to rely on government largesse. It takes two committed parents, working hard and sacrificing for our children.

Yeah it is an op-ed....but it says it all.

For the most part...getting high, selling drugs, popping more kids out, and landing in jail...cycle, rinse, repeat!

I guess more violence probably...

And some people think that things will somehow improve if we just legalize the drugs that make people zombies and neglect their kids.  The problem will only feed the problem, maybe even faster, by creating more situations where kids are abandoned or neglected due to parents' drug use.

Aren’t you the SJW. :P

it will at least free up space in prisons for the people that actually belong there.

It'd create even more addicted zombies and families that need government assistance and other forms of help because it also means more kids that will be abandoned due to parents' addiction.

The city is in dire need of mentors, though, so you could always volunteer to come forward and do what the communities most affected are failing to step forward and do.

I’ve thought about it. If I can’t sell these worthless preseason Ravens tickets maybe I’ll take an at risk youth to one and buy him or her a now-price-reduced hotdog. Then will I finally be let off whatever hook of yours I’m hanging on???

At least they are in schools. My hat is off to the City of Baltimore and their kind and generous school system.

 

May these children learn that even if their parents abandon them the City of Baltimore will not !!

I don't think available space is the issue in regard to keeping REALLY bad guys in jail is the issue. 

The real issue is that no one (courts/ etc.) has the balls to put and keep them there.

Overcrowding is not the trend.  Crime rates are down, and prisoner populations are down.  Those are the reasons cited by New York officials for their plan to close four prisons.  What seems odd is that the buildings will not be sold or redeveloped – merely “closed,” to save money on staffing.  So more empty prisons.

If only that was the case and those kids were going to school. 

City Schools Attendance Falls to 13-Year Low, Juvenile Crime Spikes
 

Quote

 

…As we kept digging, we discovered this: In Baltimore City, 39 percent of high school students are considered chronically absent, or truant, by missing more than 20 days. That’s 8,400 teenagers who regularly are not going to school.

…Meanwhile, Smith said the Police Department is actively working with the School District to get more kids to school. Because a 76 percent attendance rate, means nearly 25 percent of all city high schools aren’t in school, every day.

Right...because legalizing drugs is just what this city needs... :rolleyes: More drug addicts who cant work because they'd rather get high. Or, maybe THIS is a suitable enough sight to deal with when you're just trying to pay for some groceries.

Democrats don’t care about that. They are too busy trying to import enough low income people who will help lead us to socialism.

They are very patient. One small step at a time. Alinsky tactics in action
