I think Dave Betras is being a gentleman in not saying anything. I'm not his biggest fan but I think he is taking the high road on this. I don't care about Judge Dellick's reputation, I care about the safety of the community. I know she must be broken hearted but she has to put safety first, even her childs. It's very hard being a parent these days, so many bad influences coming in from every direction. Our kids are swamped with bad role models. I urge Judge Dellick to not bail her son out anymore. At least the community is safer with him behind bars. I pray for a good outcome.

With all the people he has hurt why has no one pressed charges? Is his parents pockets that deep? These people are enablers too. If that kid attacked me no amount of money could buy me off. This kid is a runaway train and needs to be stopped!

Many parents raise their children to be responsible adults. Once they are 18 though they can chose to go right or go left. The choice IS theirs though. You can't always blame the parent. In this case though Judge Dellick should have come out and said she was trying to get help for her son instead of defending him. Also the problem here is that too many doctors overprescribe psych meds and don't follow up on how the patient is doing. The patient has to be on just the right med in order for it to be effective and it is trial and error. Then the problem becomes staying on the med. Many patients go off their meds and have serious repercussions. How many people shop for psych doctors, get their meds then go to another doctor for some more. It's called polypharmacy. I worked in the field a long time and I know how the industry works. He needs pink slipped and put in a hospital until they find what works for him. It's a long road but if this road isn't traveled the consequences can be fatal.

I'm saying it now - this kid is the type to take a gun into an eatery, school or elsewhere and open fire. He is obviously mentally ill and needs put into a mental health facility. Judge Dellick needs to step up and be a mom instead of catering to him and keeping her judgeship. Ban him from campus and get him on meds immediately. Some innocent person is going to get hurt. Then the common phrase will be "I told you so."

This has got to be on of the worst times in history regarding racial tensions. I don't think things will ever be solved truthfully. As long as blacks keep playing the race card and whites do their "thing" in terms of corruption and who knows, things will never be settled. The next generation and those that follow will suffer even more. No one wants to give in. So sad. I have no high hopes for Youngstown anymore. They were once given the key to their own city but somehow they locked themselves out.

Warren has been in the news for its violent crimes more than Youngstown has as of late. Youngstown you're not trying!
