This is crazy and Youngstown is just getting worse. I thought it was bad back in the 1990's when my daughter was coming up. The first time I heard on tv where a group of boys were looking for another boy on the north side, this child's family members were sitting outside and there was a 3yr. old little girl there. Since the boy they were looking for the young man that was talking with the family member said (and I quote) "Well tell him we are looking for him" and he turned and shot the 3yr. old and killed her. That was so sad. When my daughter was coming up I called the Police on her for something she did, when they came out I requested they take her to juvenile, to my shock I was told they only take children who have committed FELONIES. What a slap in the face to parents today who try and keep their children on the right path. I told the officer that I AS A PARENT AM TRYING TO PREVENT MY CHILD FROM GOING IN THAT DIRECTION. Nothing the officer could do. However the good part of this story is that my daughter turned out fine she has children of her own and she is a great mom. I think the court system needs to go backwards to the 70's when they allowed you to discipline your child and they were punished by the courts when it got out of hand at home. Not this craziness of having not only your own child but the other children being allowed to stand and disrespect adults and run wild in the streets. The COURTS have tied the parents hands because now YOU go to JAIL for spanking your child.

Oh MY Goodness, This woman has totally lost it. She wants to go to a four day week, yeah that is real bright, that just gives these kids more time to be out in the streets causing havic. Let me tell you about last Tuesday, at Volleny there was a young lady ATTACKED not by one student but by 25 students and there was NO SECURITY. When the mother of this young lady called Wendy she was informed that yes there were suppose to be security BUT because of the DEFICET the security had been cut. What if it had been one of WENDY's children? would the Deficet had mattered then? To top off this call to Wendy this mother was told that in order to INSURE her daughter's saftey she (the mother) might want to consider HOME SCHOOLING her daughter. WHAT???? People PLEASE Let's put someone in the position that has the best interest and SAFTEY of our children at heart rather then their own bank account.
