I have no idea what’s involved in this particular incident, but I do believe that the ability of whole gangs of young men and women to play games with peoples lives and well being is fueled in part by a lack of emotional bonding during upbringing. If you have no defined family structure, and never learn about love and giving, you don’t value the lives of others. That lack of family structure has been driven, in part, by government policies that make it possible for people to have multiple children without the ability to support them and outside a two-parent household.
I have had discussions with those whose knee-jerk liberal/pseudo-progressive response is that we shouldn’t discriminate against single parents. Well, there is a big difference in my view between those who are loving responsible single parents who wound up that way without planning it, vs. those who are irresponsible and feel they are entitled to have the world pay for them to have children. The left makes it sound like everyone living on welfare with multiple children is in that position as ‘victims’. The true victims are the children who don’t get the kind of nurturing or have the stability that all children need.
As Fedzilla’s welfare state grew (under both Dems and Pubbies), the rules required that families with able-bodied adult males present could not qualify for assistance and males bailed (a lot of them most happily, BTW) in droves.
And many kids — of all hues — raised in those single parent environments are responsible for a disproportionate amount of crime and violence and wind up in jail or an early grave.
This has also given rise to a higher tolerance of that sort of criminality within the black community which then feeds back into itself in a pattern now the norm in many “hoods”.
Romney got it right: As long as the libs keep the benefits flowing, these folks will remain on the Democrat plantation for life!
