I fear for Mr. Clark because he now wants to go out and buy a gun. Little does he realize that those young punks would have just shot him with his own weapon. It makes me sick when I see black on black crimes like what happened to Mr. Clark. It's just shameful. Simply shameful.
I am so sorry to hear this. Please know that Mr. Clark will be in my and DH's thoughts and prayers.

This is such a sad place that society is in.

Ani,

I can not tell you how furious I am at this. Not just this scenario but the picture as a whole.

Help me out here......
I remember hearing on the news or somewhere of a group that volunteers and goes to court to observe cases, be a voice for the true victims out there and be vocal about what is going on. Do you know what I am talking about? It isn't GAL. I have heard small stories about it and I wonder if that is something that people in this community need to be more active in.

I can not remember the name of this group?

urban, I don't care what color any of them are, it is awful.

Apparently North Carolina does have some type of parental responsibility law. Maybe the authorities should dust it off & use it.

I agree - I don't care what color/race anyone involved in these attacks might be. This has to cease. These kids are terrorists. They are!!! They are terrorizing neighborhoods and when it comes to the place that they are picking on the elderly . . . then it is surely time we all can agree - this has gone too far.

Mr. Robinson could have been my daddy, your daddy . . . he very well is someone's daddy and now they are going to be worried sick about his freedom to even walk down the street! This could affect his ability to feel safe in his own home!

If that was my 81 year old father, I'd be calling my "friends" in NJ to make sure those kids took a "ride" to rural SC that they'd never return from! "Hey Vito", "come visit me and I'll load up your truck with some free cigarettes"..."I need a favor"! Maybe if some of these thugs "disappeared" after they got out of jail, both the prosecutor and their parents wouldn't object to a long stay in jail. Most likely, they'll be let go and we'll hear about them three or four months from now getting caught doing the same thing! Perhaps, CMPD needs a "Dexter" in their midst to correct the "revolving door of crime" that is perpetually swinging round and round in Charlotte.

Yeah Hitler, that's a bright idea.

In regards to the story itself, stuff like this really sickens me, it really does. Seniors, after working all their lives and raising their children, deserve to live out the rest of their days in peace and with respect. This is just crazy.

Not to that extreme , but perhaps a form of screening to determine who is psychologically endowed well enough to not only birth , but to raise children who will become productive in civilization.
I will refrain from the diatribe of 'this is on the news nightly', et al. , but something has to be done. Taking some of the procedures of eugenics may be the only hope for humanity to reverse the spiral into an inescapable chasm of self destruction.
Speaking of which , when this song was out in my heyday , we not only listened , but understood the point the artists were trying to make. These teens now are basically the same , just exposed to what can be referred to as 'SLIM' , or sensibility lacking in music. Point notwithstanding , maybe a subversive attempt by the artists who are deserving of that designation to , in effect , 'reverse engineer' the 'crime , violence , degradation is cool' message sent to these entities will have an impact. That and frequent whippings with switches tied in bundles of 3.

Give 'em a wood shampoo, slide 'em alongside that batch of DVD players, take 'em to Secaucus and dump 'em off of route 3.

That's the way we do things.

heh
