"Boardman A Nice Place To Call Home". I think it still is. I also think that situations similar to this are the parents fault. They need to take a more active role in raising their children. Growing up in Boardman and looking back on it I know that most of the parents had no idea what there children were really up to. Maybe the parents were stressed about the bills coming in or a layoff at work or they really just didn't care. BUT...I think everyone needs to take a step back and look at the big picture from this event. No one was seriously hurt! Be thankful that no one involved decided to pull out a gun and start shooting into the crowd. This situation could of gotten out of hand very quickly. How many parents in Boardman are positive their child isn't carrying a gun? Poorly parented kids and guns aren't just on the southside of Youngstown. They're everywhere. Do your job parents.
