    Ever seen a roach at night run in all directions to get away from being seen in the light? That is what comes to mind when I think of these bottom feeders. I would love to see them do something positive and constructive for themselves and their community. To turn around and be positive role models for other youth at risk. Volunteer at the Boys and girls club or be a Big Brother or Big Sister for kids in your community who have only 1 parent. Someone to help with homework or just be a friend. You could get up every day with pride and good self esteem. Ever seen the Pide Piper with all of his rats in a trance following behind? That is another image I have of these people. They could rise above who they are right now but that would take some courage. Bigger stuff than they have. Cowards do what they did to this man. Anyone can be a coward. Takes a big person to be a hero. As awful as they are now, they can change for the better. Just pray they do.

    Anonymous. Why are you so angry? I think I know what I mean more than you. You are way too sensative. I bet you are just an angry person in general. Life is short. Try to find the good in things. You will a lot happier and so will your kids. Ridiculous is being upset over something you perceive as an insult. It wasn't.

    No Anonymous your post clearly states that people should not be single parents. So I repeat your post is ridiculous. And you may think your kids turned out really nice, but you do not know when one of them might make a mistake or meet up with the wrong person. Just because they are grown(if they are grown) does not mean they are above getting theirselves into bad situations.

    To Anonymous. I said a single mother and a family. That covered single mom's too. I have 6 kids. I was a single mom once to. I also had my child in church, spent a lot of time with her and surrounded her with good people. All of my children turned out really nice. I just know how difficult it is when you don't take the time or have the resources to care for a baby. That my dear is NOT ridiculous.

    to Anonymous on Sep 28, 2009 at 06:26 PM Your comment is ridiculous. I was raised in a single parent home. I do not go around robbing or hurting people. So before you comment. Why don't you ask people who have grown up in a single parent home. There is alot of us. And yes I have a job, so I take care of myself and my child with no husband. What do you do to take care of yourself?

    WITN ...can we please get more details in your reports. Many of the stories I see like this one lack the time or even a round about time that they happened.

    Hey. Do you think they were raised in a 2 parent home that gave them structure, discipline, and continuity? Think they went to church every Sunday and had role models that taught them respect and to value others and themselves? Do you think they have any work ethic or any kind of moral compass? Nope. Mom's, this is what happens when you lay down and make babies but are too lazy to raise them with ANY of the above values. I bet most of those predators didn't have a father growing up for a role model to look up to and have direct them in the right direction through life. Now their role models are gang members who they regard as 'family'. That is pathetic. Girls. Before you get pregnant please consider what you have to offer a child as a single mother to him. Babies are precious but they are a huge responsibility and you OWE them a loving, responsible mother and family that will invest in their futures and reap the rewards when they are older. The entire community will appreciate it.
