I live in the hood and took the day off yesterday just because. I heard more sirens than I've heard in months come to find out 3 robberies and 2 shootings within 4 hours. All suspects were arrested within minutes. Thats why prisons are full of minorities.

The point I was trying to make is: the OP, as well as this article, are directing this to the public when it should be directed towards government officials and we should be holding them accountable.edit on 9-1-2013 by mandy1love because: (no reason given)

While i see your point about mass murders not being related, i also see the relationship of guns and gangs. The citizens arm themselves to protect themselves from these gangs etc. If America did not feel the need to be armed to protect themselves and their families there would be far fewer guns in America. The fact is that there were fewer than 400 deaths attributed to rifles in America in 2011. The gun legislation proposed on assault type weapons will not do anything to curb mentally ill people from committing mass murder. It is a foggy issue that really has little to do with guns in general.

If the OP's topic header is true,
then why didnt potus even mention anything when had the change before the nation, weeks ago?
He shed fake crocodile tears for the 'white' CT massacre, only?
Guess barry's showin his true colors?
Can you honestly say its the crime in your community that makes it bad? Or is it the community that is bad and that's why there is so much crime?

Who are you to speak for me? I care about all life but yes unfortunately this is something that we have all grown accustomed to knowing, gang members kill people every day sometimes they kill innocent bystanders too.
Short of martial law what can be done?
Stop assuming that no one cares because they are black. Write your governments and tell them to start more programs for homeless teens, schooling for gangmembers, help them get jobs and maybe continue their lifes without violence.
