Thoughts On This: Mayor Suggests Building A Boxing Ring To Settle Street Beefs
Mr. Jones From Friday: Too scared to take an ass-whipping. This is what makes you a man. When I was growing up, this was all the protection we needed. You win some, you lose some. But you live, you live to fight another day! Now you think you're a man with a gun in your hands, don't you?
Craig: I'm a man without it.
Mr. Jones: Put the gun down.
Baltimore’s Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young wants to try a new approach to preventing gun violence.
According to the Baltimore Sun the Mayor says:
“If they want to really settle them, we can have them down at the Civic Center [now called Royal Farms Arena], put a boxing ring up, let them go and box it out, those kind of things,” Young said. “[May] the best man win, and the beef should be over. Those are some kinds of things I’m thinking about, and hoping that we can get these people to put these guns down.”
For this to work in Buffalo we would need boxing rings all over the city not just one. But not a bad idea, What are your thoughts on this?
