  1. Three 17-year olds illegally in possession of, and using, firearms. How much effort will the RCSO, GBI, and ATF expend to: 1) determine how, when, and from whom these “good kids” obtained their weapons, and 2) prosecute those who provided the firearms? They’ll plead out, get first time offender status, do community service, and then repeat their crimes, possibly killing someone the next time.

  2. “Mance was the victim of a beating that night by 11 or 12 youths from Laney.” Our fair city is experiencing a warped cultural dilemma, and I don’t believe anyone from our government, churches, or school board knows how to correct it. Many of these feral children have no concept of civility because their day-to-day lives are filled with distrust and misery. We, as a society, have been blaming parenting and poverty, and law enforcement, and poor education for many years now. Parental accountability cannot be dictated and regulated, so the rest of us — the clear-headed and educated — must suffer for the sins of the broken. It’s very sad.
