    Parenting and scumbags? But, nothing from you about Investors who are shoveling all the money made here for 150 yrs to China,India,Brazil? And,therefore not creating jobs or futures for this generation of 100M Gen Y kids? I agree about parenting,but when 2 parents are both working for ZERO % real wage growth in 30 yrs? Go ahead and carry your gun. Those Investors have you where they want you. Shooting our kids! You can be a big part of the problem that is going to get worse instead of any real solution!

    Politicians say "take back USA for our children." By 2050 our children will be predominantly non-white. Should we fund better education, more positive extra-curricular programs and productive technical career training for ALL our kids now?

    It all comes back to bad parenting in my opinion. I also couldn't help but notice the perpetrators were all black youths. Not one Latino, Asian or white kid among them. Then again to notice that is being racist right? You are getting exactly what you deserve America! Wake up!!!

    So somebody who used to be a GOP official called Rick Perry an idiot? How many people have called President Obama disinterested, aloof , a friend of unrepentant terrorists, in over his head, arrogant, a socialist, etc... and none of this you seem to think is worth reporting
