    I know plenty of people that didn't get what they need at home and didn't grow up to be murderers.

    I think, regardless of a kid's home life, that the appeal of that, "thug life", is far more attractive to every kid's instinct to rebel. I think we're all just as susceptable to falling into that trap, if exposed to it. Does home training make a difference? Sure it does, but sometimes the gang life outweighs the home training.

    I don't think there's any hard and fast rule as to why kids become invovled become involved in this crap and I could list a dozen, or more, reasons why I think it happens, but your mileage may vary.

    I thought that was common knowledge.

    Any way You'll have to wait a bit until I can access a real PC, and not my Droid.

    Or if you don't want to wait you could look it up your self

    I see this turning into another huge race issue. Too many different stories going on, and the parents still aren't crying - neither of them.
    The suspects are black...of course it's going to turn into a race issue. That was a given.

    Jesse, Al and the Black Panthers will show up before long and Obama will be going on about how if he had a son, he would look like these two clowns.

    Sorry but I've got to disagree with you there.

    Home life, especially at early ages is key in discouraging your kids away from gangs, crime and stupid and destructive fads.

    Kids look for in their community what they're not getting at home. There are statistics on how many people that wind up in prison ( sorry can't link to it ) that grew up in broken, abusive and dysfunctional homes and its astounding.

    Sure you would have the exception, but not whats happening inplaces like South Chicago.

    And parents learn from their parents how to raise children efdectively, which explains the perpetual amount of crime and poverty that seems to go on in inner city neighborhoods.

    My daughter won her district in Hurdles last year and came in second on the 100 meter dash.

    The girl that beat her in the 100m was amazingly talented, could have gone to any school under a full scholarship. I took one look at her mother and knew it was a lost cause.

    Where is she this year ? Dropped out of school and pregnant.

    Interesting how this turned into a "nature vs nurture" debate.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
