  1. CNN had an article that stated there have been 45 mass *shootings* in the last month: https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/16/us/mass-shootings-45-one-month/index.html You probably haven’t heard of most of these as were mass *shootings* and about of those are mass *murders*. In recent years the media has distinguished mass shootings (4 or more people shot) and mass murders (4 or more people killed) as now the numbers can be larger to get their point across. Four of those have been widely covered by the media; Indy, Orange, Ca., Boulder and Atlanta. The other 3, not so much. One was a
  2. There are teaching moments is each kids life. If we as parents miss them and/or dismiss them, we are not doing them any favors and the parents usually pay for it later. JMO.
  3. I’ve been looking at this and got to some local outlets and found an interesting article. This was the 3rd mass murder in Indianapolis since the first of the year. I have not seen any national news on these stories of, as you call them, *well regulated militia*. I’m curious if you have? https://www.wthr.com/article/news/crime/fedex-shooting-is-third-mass-casualty-case-for-impd-this-year/531-eed8a086-564a-46e7-a333-333cde4ec9de Note that the definitions of mass *shooting* is malleable as it can be 4 or more gunshot victims as a mass shooting (Chicago has one or two each weekend) as
  4. Again, this is speculating what I hope I would do if my kid had blown off all my teachings to help him be a productive member of society. Once that happens, evidently, my teachings were not affective so law enforcement and the law is what he really needs.
  5. I can understand that, but if you are aware of your kid’s habits and this was not the first time he was high on something, you as a parent should be able to call the shots. It’s not up to law enforcement to discipline him or the law to lay down his punishment, you as the parent, need to be able be in the discussion as to how he takes responsibility for his actions. I have never been in this situation, but have disciplined my kids harshly at times. When you take away driving privileges of your 16 YO it is a pain in the butt, because you have to drive him everywhere he NEEDS to go, but wa
  6. I can see that, I do wish everything that happens wasn’t viewed through a racial lenses.
  7. If I knew my kid was prone to drive under the influence and evidence showed he was under the influence you can’t believe your own kid. Falling asleep when you’re under the influence is a euphemism for passing out.
  8. I agree that a vast majority will act this way, just not *everybody*. If this had happened to one of my kids, I hope I would have tried to work a deal that gave the kid some actual jail time. I’m not sure that would even be an option, but I hope the law would be flexible enough to do what is right for society and my kid.
  9. You don’t think there are tough love parents out there? I know a couple. If you monitor your kids activities closely, you have a better sense of what to expect.
  10. I didn’t see the relationship between *taking ownership of being black* and systemic racism. Thanks. I choose a field for the same reasons as my being able to work was directly related to how I performed my job. Meet or exceed that standard and you’re golden. I don’t know how long you have been at your job, but I would imagine the longer you are there and still meet the standards the more acceptance you will get. We all have biases, not necessarily prejudices, but biases against certain people we disagree with. Like this broad, people can be bias against
