If these punk kids want to act like irresponsible adults, the courts should treat them like irresponsible adults. Try and convict the junior felon with a brief jail sentence. No slapping on the wrist anymore. Show him what the real world looks like. It might save his life or an innocent citizens life. He's eventually going to pull his little pea shooter on an armed individual and get the ghetto blown out of him. Afterwards the media will show a picture of an innocent looking child instead of the thug he thought he was. Trayvon all over again

did u guys see the h/c achievement of AAA bond rating. SHAME on county representatives especially who "initiated" low cost housing in this area. Socalled "kids" donot have jobs, just wandering over the streets. Scare to walk on pathways even on brighter day light. SHAME on those parents, county management who's ruining h/c.
