    3 teens murdered in Newark NJ, last month, drive b gang initition,
    yet Newark has about 6 hardwoking and dedicated community based organizations working desperatly to solve the prblm but inspite of their efforts it is getting worse.
    A similar incident of a 16 year old girl in Brownsville Brooklyn shot a teen in the back last week, nother gang initition.
    Listen to Open Line KISS FM NYC on Sunday mornings at 10 AM ad on just about every show for the past 7 months there is another incident mentioned, like the bus shooting in Phillie,
    and the community based groups desperatly trying to stem this tide.


    This isa national problem, however inspite of local efforts, local efforts that haev gone on non stop for over 15 years since the crack epidemic, and massive homicides ofthe late 80s ad early 90s things are getting, worse, andwhat is noted is that as communities become regentrfed only then is there more police and less or no violence,
    now folks keep talking about parent resonsibility but really howmany iresponsibe parents do you know?

    Now sttistics show that as any economy declines gangs and gang violence increases. The nationa census says 20 percent of all children regardless of color now live in poverty in this nation,
    so we know what the statisticsare for us.


    The question now is, now with a Black president, the spending power of
    a trilion Black dollars, and a communications technology that Dr King and Malcolm could have never dreamed of,


    what is holding us back from creating a national institution or think tank to deal with this and stem the tide of fratricde???

    More than a think tank is needed.
    Boots on the ground is what's needed.... night watchmen, citizen patrols, etc.

    Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, is.......http://www.987kissfm.com/OpenLine/ listen to last Sunday; this is a brother that has a long established patrol in Phillie and there are those in major cities as well, that is why even with Black community patrols a national approach is needed, and the FOI, and the Black Panther Party for Self Defense were about that national approach.
    We have tried small efforts here and there, is it working?

    From the community defense group you have worked with how many are still there or can afford to continue?
    that is why a national approach is needed

    At some point, effort must be expended to meet face to face with each the youth.
    And you can't show up empty handed with just words of admonishment or encouragement. They will need assistance with their personal, scholastic, and economic affairs.

    I'd prefer more local control than national. In most instances, calls for nationalizing anything is for purposes of centralizing power and control over money and resources rather than assistance of anyone.

    We know what the problems are for the past 45 years !! Decent Black families & individuals need to separate themselves from the negative Black elements or go down the toliet with them. There are just too many Blacks who not willing to pull themselves up by the bootstraps and progress with other Blacks. Instead, they chose to raise havoc & chaos against other Blacks when frustrated & depressed. "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink"

    I'd prefer more a "save all you can" approach.

    At the very least, plant a seed.

    The out-of-control OOW epidemic has been fueling the crime ridden Black Community for 4 decades. Control the OOW numbers and the problem is mostly solved or manageable.

    Love the person. Detest the action.
    Granted, there will be those who are incorrigible, but the whole bunch isn't bad.
    They just need some guidance, right information, and someone to talk to.

    It is aslso where you plant the seed if you expect an abundance harvest. Plant the seed in bad soil {Black Community} you are likely to raise a bad harvest. That is also a biblical approach. Sorry !! the majority of BC around the country are run by drug dealers, thugs, babies' mamas & hoodrats. Why do you think there was a massive exodus of Blacks out of the BC since the late 80's.
