Community Should Be Alarmed, Devise Plan to Stop Violence? [VIDEO]

Now it looks like we have a young boy who got in to a domestic altercation with his girlfriend and shot her to death last night around 8:30 over on Virginia near Trenton. Another senseless killing in our community and there seems to be no end in sight. But what amazes me the most is that the community is not united in a way to come together and demand an end to the genocide of its own people; which makes me feel that maybe, just maybe, our community is suffering from a psychological condition that is affecting those that live in this awful environment.

TOPIC:

What Qualities In A Woman Would Make Her A Better Mother?

OVERVIEW:

We have had many discussions on this radio station, community forums, and conversations at church, in our homes and on the streets about the out of control generation that currently affects all of us in some way or another, our community, and society. This by no means is to say that all of the young men and women in our community and around this country are behaving in ways that would have been unheard of when we were growing up back in the day!

Experiencing The Plight Of My Community First Hand

 

Every other Thursday I go to the barber to get a haircut and this Thursday was no different from any other Thursday except, I witnessed something that shook me so much that I was forced to write about it on the website.

When I arrived at the barber shop I was approached to purchase something from a nice lady in the community that sales baked items. I told her that I need to go back outside to my truck to get a couple of dollars that I keep in the sun visor and would be right back. As I opened the door of my vehicle I hear pop, pop, pop, pop, pop and see a young man standing at the corner about two blocks away shooting a gun. He then takes off running across the street while immediately being chased by the police who roll up on him almost as soon as he finishes shooting the gun. I stood there for a few minutes just to see what was going on as police flooded the area…now remember this is about 2:30 in the afternoon, broad daylight and about 90 degree weather.
