    The growing number of balck males being killed and committing crimes is an ever growing problem. It seems as though every day their faces are flashed across the screen of our local news. What does it take to make them see that this type of life gets them a ticket to prison or death. Wake up and take advantage of the opportunities that are before you. where?

    It's a shame that we are loosing our young people to childish violence. What ever happened to communication of the better mind?
