It really sad to see another young person die before they have has a chance to enjoy their life span. I work with detainee at the hall and I see it time and time again young male and female charged with an assault with a deadly weapon facing imprisonment. I have asked the question why and the answer has never been the same so have remorse and some state they were from another block. Death of our young people have become territorial, yet if we recall the history of America has always been a behavior taught pattern. So why do we get surprise when we see a young person die, when laws are implemented to reverse, and when community are infested with criminal conduct. When it come down to one thing bad behavior is taught behavior and if we dont re-education our families,communities,and rebuild lifes that are effected by a string of current events then we are going to keep on seeing deaths like this.
