    The handful of posters in this thread accusing everyone of being racist is nothing but PROJECTION on their part. As GW once said
    "Its the soft bigotry of low expectations" and they expect nothing more from the black youth of America. While we expect more from
    this group of society and are willing judge them as we judge ourselves, which makes them our equals, they are not. So in a sense they
    condone this behaviour or make excuses for it, which in turn makes them feel superior with regards to minorities.

    Considering my post that was quoted never mentioned race and was only focused on education & people who dwell in trailers, I didn't understand the cute use of the "n" word (struck out) in the response.

    It's as if some are determined to bring race into discussions and then are sorely disappointed when posters don't bite.

    I don't give a flying **** what race these savages were. There is a definite problem in this country and failure to acknowledge it and address it will only cause it to continue. If this was a pack of rich white kids I would hold them in the same contempt I hold this pack of savage monsters. If my kids every got involved in **** like this, they would be grounded until they were of legal age to leave.

    That a hundred kids walk into a store and begin attacking perfect strangers who haven't harmed them at all in anyway. There's the knock out game (I think it's called, could be wrong on that) where kids walk up to a perfect stranger on the street and punch them. Things that I don't believe you and I ever considered as teens, or even heard of. We did, relatively harmless pranks. I agree there's something different here.

That's not overplaying anything in my view.
    They all point at these supposed "growing trend" and "viral attacks" and whatnot.

    Violent crime has been decreasing for years.

    Then please provide facts showing groups of violent teens attacking innocents is reducing over the years.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Every form of crime decreasing. You want to prove that mob violence is bucking the trend? Provide evidence.

    It has been decreasing nationwide. However, it hasn't been in some cities like Memphis, Little Rock, Saint Louis, and Detroit.

    Where's the conflict? "Having reverted to the wild" yes, after having once been domestic. We have both wild pigs, and feral pigs, the later now roaming and living in the wild, though having once been breed in domestic farms.

    You will never hear of grizzly bears being referred to as feral. Cats, dogs, pigs, etc. can be.
