The mentality of the residents reminds me of those communities who think Gang members/biker gangs/Mexican Mafias ect are cool and like to hang with the likes.
Another poster questioned the voting demographics of the area my guess is many dont vote.
This story has not been reported on via the media here on the West Coast much at all.
Perhaps the mentality of this community leaves little to report on.
If that is truly the case then why should anyone who cares spend time with these arson events.
Let these people be their own victims and refuse them any tax dollar relief funds when their homes go up in flames or perhaps the homes are rentals so not much pride in a dwelling you are working hard to become owner of.
Are you local to these arson crimes?
If so what is your take on the lack of responsiveness from the community?
I live about 35 miles away, so I don't have any local knowledge. My general feeling is that this is the same sort of attitude that results in belief that education is the enemy. Sadly, it's this self-defeating, victim mentality that is the scourge of the black community.
