      Sweeite, it’s not just Black America that is playing out this disturbing trend, it’s White, Blacks, Hispanics, etc. And obviously, it’s not about being materialistic; kids/teens/young adults, whomever, do these types of things are clearly lacking common sense and a true judgement of reality! Making a statement like you did is IGNORANT.

    This that bullshit that happens when parents aren’t beating these spoiled ass selfish entitled kids asses! These kids are so Damn out of control while the Schools & Cops are waiting for the parent to be reported & CCI is waiting for the kids to goto far! This is nothing but a fucking experiment and society on a whole is looking! Black, White, Asian or Latino while Big Brother pushes thru laws & regulations furthering the gap between Rich & Poor while using Racism to keep the dumb ass masses detracted! There was just another post this morning about a Douglasville Brother getting arrested for disciplining his Son with Exercises & making his ass carry a rock back & forth. Open y’all eyes, none of this bullshit is happening by accident, it was planned years ago!

      preach bro .. i mean when they schools took prayer out the schools and decided that juvenile detention centers be built in every city .. some of those juvenile jails are big as prisons .. they told parents in the 70s that they were stopping spankings ,, and anyone caught spanking will be subject to cps in your home parents immediatly became irresponsible .. you can spank a kid in the hand even .. as long as punishment is emminent , these kids need to know that punishment is warrented .. that is why so many of them dont care , they curse out the parent , hit the mothers ,, and stab and shoot at the adult males ..and we wonder why most off them never make it to college ..? and end up in the pen .. this young boy life is over cause his parents could not disipline him and then waited to late to try …

    0_o. Obviously this kid had mental health issues. Parents take items away from kids all the time but are never murdered as a result. These comments from ppl of color irk the fuck out of me. Why generalize like this type of shit is common??!!

    Tragic situation, obvious mental health problem. I have a concern also with the writing of this story, the writing is poor, and there are typos. Give better articles to your readers.

    Start disciplining children early in life and it won’t come back to haunt you.

    Abortion is not a bad thing. Should have aborted him. He was cursed.

    this boy is a product of his enviroment , look at how much information these kids have access to on the net> ? they can learn anything they want ., wonder what type of upbring he had , was he adotped this couple was older , in their 50s what are they doing with a 16 year old he looks nothing like either of them , more than likely he is adopted , i dont believe a kid will shoot his biological parents like that for a minut reason such as a ipod >/? come on yall ? this guy was spoiled from infant possibly a fatal mistake parents are making you cant give them all kinds of stuff and spoil them then take it back …. you have to find other ways to discipline like this boy should of forfieited his trip to disney land .. or not been able to participate in any out side the house activities .. but to take his property he feels he owns ? umm that is asking for issues .. but not this big of an issue … i think kids are outta control most of them .. i dont think anychild should be givin a computor ., my friend gave her 13 year old access to her computor while she worked nights and she come home one morning and the girl had not logged out .. her blogg was still up with notes written to a 30 year old man about sex and meeting up one day .. its was frightening for the single mom .. she didnt know what to do so she took the computor out the house , and took away her cell phone .. since she worked .she put a house phone in the house and monitored all the calls on her bill .. wow ..she stepped it up … ithink parents should have to get a house phone for kids to use …
    cell phones should be afforded when they turn 18 ..hell i couldnt date till i was 17 , my parents were real strict and non of us said a dam thing … we did as we were told we turned out good adults …. so parents need to star when they 2 , and dont givethem no cell phones etc

    Hey Black folks, lets get back to the basics. Lets stop letting these distractions that the man invents to make money and at the same time throw us off track from whats most important in life….love and family.

    did anyone hear about the recent story of the texas teen who met a man on the internet and met up with him once her parents found out about it and demanded he stay away from her , she was diagnosed with hiv .. this is the saddest they say he knew he had it too …. he met her after school in movie theaters ,and places eventually luring her to sex in a car . and then this isaid thats it man i throw in the towel .. parent need to have sitters for teens as well as babies this should be an act of congresss to do .. if a parent is found to not have a siitter they should be finded and placed on probation
