    Really don't care what his pathetic circumstances are. You reap what you sow....

    What is so scary about this is that he was probably going to an area high school where he sold drugs and carried weapons onto campus. Not to mention likely recruiting other gang members from the school.

    The boy may have been label as a gang member because of who he hangs with and the type of crimes they have in the area related to gangs. Why does that matter anyway they got someone off the streets that was doing somethin he ought not to be. To the parents who keep their kids in line. Kudos, so many(not all) "parents" these days dont care what their kids do then wonder why they are picking them up from jail or burying them.

    You are so right. I have a friend who is a male who cannot control his son. Lord knows he tries, but he has fail. I think some days he will have a heart attack trying to get through to him. His mother does not care and treats the father as if the son is really not his child. I am a single black mother(yes a taxpayer)raising a son(father in military), but I get the most disrespect when it comes to my son. People in Eastern NC do not take to kindly to single mothers that is why they think he is a man. To Al Bundy going to church does not mean a thing, I also know some bad ones in church.

    What he did was wrong but how dare the police label this as gang activity. Every crime that is committed is not gang related and this should not be looked at as if thats another gang member off the streets because its not true. They need to be looking for the real gang members

    To Peace 35 I have a 17 yo son too. I give you a thank you because you and I make sure our kids do the right thing. He My son is in church and does what he is supposed to. Now this does not mean he is perfect , he is your typical 17 yo boy. Mine lives with his mama and he knows that if he messes up I am there to take care of it when his mama calls.but his mama does a great job!I am a firm believer in it takes a village to raise a child.My Ex wife's family and mine are involved too. Put God and great parents and a young person will make it. God bless you for being the man you are to take care of him and raising him right!

    I bet he is already out on bond and will be arrested again for another crime before he goes to court on this one.

    I have a 17 year old African American son and he wear urban clothing listen to rap music but I better not dare hear him or see him act of any activity of gang nor will I not know of his whereabouts after 9pm. Parents, grandparents, guaridians, please step up to your parental duties before they label all our kids as gang members, and thugs,etc.

        How do you know this is a man? It could be a single black mother. Do you think that only men can keep a kid in line? My son much rather deal with the police than his mama. He has never been in trouble. He is 19 and I ALWAYS know where he is. My house, my rules. He is never late because he knows he won't be able to get in the house and he does not fancy sleeping in his truck.

          Ms. Kathy, It doesn't really matter does it. People are for once being postive on here and you have to come on here and complain about gender. It does not make a hill of beans of difference. just raise your kids right!!! MALE OR FEMALE. Some folks are never happy, jeez.
