I have been doing a lot of research on crime and gangs in Charlotte lately and could not believe it when I found this thread over at crimeincharlotte.com.

Crime in Charlotte * Message Board - Photos: Charlotte Teens on MySpace (3 pages)

I know Charlotte had a huge gang/repeat offender problem, but it just sickens me that these kids can get away with being so public with their activities. It's so common these days to arrest/prosecute people based on information they put online, yet these kids can put this stuff on myspace publicly and get away with it?

Check it out.

We need to do something about the repeat offender and gang problem. Vigilante anyone?

Disclaimer: Just kidding. Let's not get into a debate about vigilantes lol

Very, very disturbing. Multiply this by how many big cities there are in the US...its everywhere. Is it any wonder that people are afraid to go into cities anymore?

Unfortunately, I think the current terms are 'baby-mama' and 'baby-daddy'.

This is just plain SAD, and of course Scary. You know you can't just blame the parents, society has to take some of the blame for this too.
