    That’s right ! There’d be less thuggery if the parents were actually parenting their children, more effectively. Though, I wouldn’t have it within me to smack either of my children around the head like that. Luckily, they’d never defy me or compel me to such extremities, to reign their misbehavior. I feel sorry for the both of them. Actually, the whole situation, is rather diabolical… for, and against. There are more civilised ways to attaining change.

      Agree it is diabolical

      shadowstarz, as a mother this is what I have to say: GO, GIRL!! I worked hard, am still working hard to raise my children to have their own voice, to express themselves, to NOT harm another as they would not want to be harmed. It’s a fine line, babe, a fine line. You can bet your rear end I’d be glad to smack one of mine that would harm an innocent and destroy property not their own to make a point. No, I taught them they can be heard without destruction of property. We do our best, as parents, but, when it comes down to it, I’ll smack the hell out of them to make my point since they feel free to smack the shit out of another. Sometimes, despite our best efforts, learning the “hard” way, is the way.

        Golden. Agree. And, parenting, is for life. However, I’m a firm believer that if you instil the proper boundaries, and teach your children right from wrong during their more formative years, then you shouldn’t be dealing with the extremities of defiance. I know, it’s a fine line, and my children are just entering their early adolescent years. However, I can’t imagine that they’d ever feel the need to result to violence, to broker a positive outcome as I’ve taught them how to do so. Having said that, they’re still emerging in their own personalities.

        My son attends a catholic college, and the same ethos instilled within me as a child, will also be instilled within both of my children. Once my youngest, enters into high school, she’ll be enrolled in the same setting, to ensure she also has the same foundation. What they choose to do with that knowledge, will assist them as they grow into adults. Many of us, learn the hard way, but resulting to violence, isn’t the solution. It taught me how to respect people, be empathic and show compassion to people but I refuse to be a hypocrite, by walking that walk. So, whilst I no longer attend church like a devoted pious, I know right from wrong and I don’t immerse myself in hypocrisy. At the end of the day, our children are the product of our parenting skills, and they person we are, internally as we instill within them, our core values via setting boundaries and having expectation(s) of them and the way they conduct themselves etc.

        By the same token, as an outsider looking into a nation, I’m disgusted by the way people reference another human being by the color of their skin. To me, that’s backwards, and it’s something that should remain back in the 1950’s, and not 2015. I suppose, if people haven’t ever traveled further than their own country, ignorance can be bliss in some instance. The whole situation, just seems diabolical… for those who feel that the only way their voice is to be heard, is to riot. And for those, who allow those voices to fall on deaf ears, irrespective of color, race and creed.

          That is what upsets me the most! It seems to me to be the shallowest way to assess anyone. I’m with you at not understanding people who have no desire to venture beyond the county seat of their locality.

            I can’t see why you’d be so upset ? I mean, if the parents instilled right from wrong into their children, their wouldn’t be any issues per se. The boys that shot and murdered Chris Lane, were all minors. Now, if their parents taught them right from wrong in the first instance, and not to handle a firearm in the manner they did, they all wouldn’t be spending the rest of their lives in prison. As a parent, you should feel comfortable in knowing that whilst your children will never be angels, they would never commit murder or any other heinous crime that infringes upon the rights of another human being. Some people have children, for all the wrong reasons, and it’s evident in their parenting skills, or lack thereof.

              I agree but what I was talking about judging by sufface things such as skin color as the most upseting and shallow.

              shadowstarz, parents can teach “right” from “wrong” until they are blue in the face. They can live a life of non-violence, acceptance and tolerance and STILL a child, a unique human might do everything the opposite of their parents.
              I like to believe I raised my children “right”, but, I would NEVER assume they’d NEVER do something. Did I have my children for the “right” or “wrong” reasons? Not a clue, nor does that have jack to do with it.

          Besides the thing about children raised by non-violent, proper boundary parents, I agree with everything.

    She should get the mom of the year award. If more parents knew what their kids were doing and made an effort to mold their behavior, we would all be better off.

    In all honesty (and this is not to justify the destruction and looting that went on) rioting is a very complex situation and understanding the psychology of a mob mentality fueled by the outrage of injustice felt by minority groups of all social demographics helps us to understand why this happens. This is the result of years of fear and profiling caused by the very same institutions that are supposed to serve and protect. Unfortunately, rioting is not restricted to protesting some event that carries understandable anger and righteous indignation. Lots of young white citizens exhibit these very same behaviors when their team wins the Super Bowl. Didn’t see any of their mamas beating them about the head as they turned cars over, burned furniture in intersections, smashed business windows and doors, and threw bottles at policemen. And they were the winners. Let’s have a little perspective here.

      Excuse me but Baltimore has been Democrat run for over 20 years. The mayor is a black female, the police chief is a black as well. The Crips and Bloods figure largely in this rioting. The police seem to have been given a stand down or ROE that are stand back and let them go.

        SEC, who cares which political party is running the city? Why do you want to turn this into a political debate? This is about understanding what’s going on with a large segment of our population in cities all over the country. This is about trying to figure out how to solve problems without judging people by their skin color or the opportunities they may or may not have in this life. Of course that mother was upset to see her kid doing that. The really dangerous point is that there doesn’t seem to be any real organized protest of Freddie Grey’s death, which means it’s just an all-out free for all. I think this is a national problem that needs to be discussed and debated, not politicized.

          Not making it about politics, just indicating the governing philosophy and programs that have been implemented in the city. The evidence of outsiders coming in to agitate and participate in the rioting and looting. Yes some of the involved officers are white but here are the names of those officers Lt. Brian Rice, Officer Caesar Goodson, Sgt. Alicia White, Officer William Porter, Officer Garrett Miller, Officer Edward Nero

            I think this is a knee-jerk response to the many other questionable police altercations since Ferguson. It’s a national concern. Believe me, I feel for the police officers who are out there just trying to do a good job. There are a lot of them. But now there’s also a climate of distrust based on the actions of some who clearly do not have the publics’ best interest at heart. It’s not an easy job……that’s for sure.

              And as in Feruson, outside agitators were imported to exacerbate the situation.

              The accounts I read said they were not outsiders, but does that really matter? People from New Jersey went to Sandy Hook to demonstrate against gun violence.

          One thing that is being glossed over was that prior to the arrest they had been chasing a person that had about 30 prior arrests for not so minor incidents

      funfreak, so………………mob mentality, knee-jerk reaction, that doesn’t mean it is right. Stop. Don’t. In the last half century I’ve felt, man, have I just NEEDED to hit, maim, kill………………didn’t. THAT is human, also.

      April 28, 2015
      1. funfreak

        I didn’t say it was right. I said we need to understand why this is happening in our cities because if you live in a city you know you have to get along with everyone. You can’t put up a big fence and segregate yourself from people you don’t like. You have to figure out how to live with all people, not just people like yourself. Not everyone has the same experiences of authority and education and opportunities. I’m just saying that before you judge, it’s important to understand the psychology of what’s happening. Not just in Baltimore, but nationwide. And, it’s also imperative that we see this as an American problem and not a Black or White problem. Why is that such a difficult concept to embrace? If we don’t, then we arm ourselves to the teeth and barricade ourselves in our individual little bunkers, fearing our fellow American citizens (whom we seem so quick to judge and disavow).

          This comes [IMHO] from entitlement expectations and years of special set asides in legal realms for separate groups that cause a feeling of division between these groups.

        3. GoldenPig2012

          No, just because I live in a city doesn’t mean I have to get along with everyone. What a ridiculous statement, no offense on you personally. I don’t put up a fence, I don’t segregate myself, I do unto others as I would want to be done to. Simple as hell and been around a LONG time. Any and all violence here is an American problem. I don’t give a shit what color or race or nationality or whatever is involved. Stop it, dumbasses, there is no excuse, no reason. Talk it out. Agree or agree to disagree or suck it up.

          Okay. I’m done. I disagree, but you certainly have the right to muster up all the support you feel is necessary to justify your position.

            I’m sorry, I feel as if, somehow, I have offended you, hurt your feelings. That was not my intention. I have no need to “muster up support”, I don’t need “support”, I’m just a woman, just a mom. a STAY-AT-HOME mom with no connections, nothing more than just……………..well, me. Again, my apologies if I hurt you and drove you out of a very interesting conversation.

              You did not offend me at all. I happen to like civil discussions that promote a better understanding of each other. I also think we each bring different views and “facts” to the table and how we interpret them lends to more discussion. Actually, I had to sign off because I am expected at a friend’s house where we will drink white wine and paint a sunset. Sounds too lovely to pass up. Thanks for your contribution.

        I know! Dad was working and me and my brother were going at it over the dinner table. I called him a punk and mom gave him the “sticks and stone may break your bones but names will never hurt you” line…so in a moment of sheer genius I said, “well, your a punk too!” I was able to make it down the hall and half way up the stairs before she popped me in the back of the head with her fist. “Fortunately” that roundhouse caused her to lose her momentum just enough to allow me to get up the stairs, through my bedroom, out the window, across the porch roof, down the gutter, and out of the neighborhood until she had calmed down and repented of her misdeed.

    We have witnessed rioting since the 60’s; a disproportionate percentage of black males have been/are incarcerated; profiling is rampant…however, imo, liberal democrats have perpetuated the dependency on government to provide, and have continued to make promises that go unfulfilled. (Because those promises are impossible to keep.) Baltimore has steadily declined over the years, and there is hopelessness.
    We have a culture of acquiescence when it comes to exploitiation of social programs by minorities, and the same acquiescence when it comes to the incarceration of black males.
    Something is very wrong with this picture of America, and we need to clean up our act.
