You don't know anything about the relatives of Kevin Agee. We are not justifying anything that he is accused of doing. You can fry him, as so many of you have called for, but there are many other Kevins being born every day. The problems run much deeper, not just in the black community but America. It seems to me that the outrage would not be as great if an elderly black man had been killed. God forbid that a white person become a casualty of the drug and turf wars that black people have had to live through for a long as I can remember and I'm 54 years old. Where was the outrage when the mob was killing people in Youngstown and dumping bodies all over the place. Youngstown has been a crime written town as long as I can remember and you people are ok with it as long as blacks kill blacks and stay in their so called ghettos and leave you white folks alone. But you should remember crime always spills out when the underlying social problems are not addressed. Kevin was not born a criminal unfortunately he fits the profile of so many black males growing up without a father or stong male mentor in his life and surrounded by crime and proverty. My sympathy is with the victims family and Kevin did a horrible thing of which can not be justified but he is not a monster. Unfortunately he got caught up in crime and made poor choices and a judge and jury will decide his fate. The majority of the males in our family are not criminals, but the most successful got the heck out of Youngstown a long time ago. But all this hate mongering serves no useful purpose.

This State, in terms of gov't., in general, and this area, in particular, have been hostile to business for years even though various politicians use the Incubator for photo ops to portray themselves otherwise. Any person in business is quite aware of this fact and its negative impact on job creation here. Strickland was among the more genuinely pro business politicians but, because of his base, consisting of a number of organized anti-business supporters, was too restrained. Kasich has none of that baggage and has a sufficiently newly business-enlightened large supporter base that will enable him to move forward much faster with fewer constraints. Ohio has far to go to "really" understand the needs of business as it relates to gov't and to remove or reduce those years of imposed accumulated burdens and economic drag.
