    Fnord -- It's not only the black culture glorifying the "gangsta" mentality. It's white, Hispanic, all races. Why? Because they think it's "cool". Nobody takes the time to teach these kids that it's alot cooler, to just be themselves. We live in a world of too many followers, not enough leaders. Kids aren't being taught by their parents that it's ok NOT to get into trouble, that it's ok to want a better life than they have currently. And, it doesn't help that parents are leaving their child rearing up to the television. Flip through those channels sometime, how many "gangstas" did you see? When it comes to our young, no matter the race, it's a game of Monkey see, Monkey do. Want kids to be better people? Then start trying to be a role model to kids you know, show them the right way. It's never too late to start trying to make a change in something that needs changing.

    I am not black, and it is not back mentality. I know of plenty of bad white kids who are into drugs and do the same stupid kind of thing. It is a stupid teenage thing that unfortunately, some people never grow out of. It is also probably a "drug" thing.

    fnord, the police cannot be everywhere at anytime! They have other areas they patrol in. And it wouldn't matter if we had patrols on every street there would still be crime. It's just a component to life. Does your job expect you to be in 30 different places at one time? Didn't think so.

    When are police going to begin better patrolling these high crime areas?? This stuff shouldn't happen in Lexington. I feel so sorry that this lady had to go through this. Why is it that black culture glorifies this kind of "gangsta" mentality?
