You can blame the increase in

You can blame the increase in crime on the economy if you wish. However, violent criminals are just that...violent low life criminal thugs who chose crime over the many other alternatives. Few if any rob and steal to feed theirselves or a family but instead do so for personal gain, drugs, alcohol, the thrill of it, etc so all the bleeding heart liberals need to stop making excuses for these violent thugs who are putting law abiding citizens in harms way not to mention the undue stress and hardships they continue to face later. Violent criminals need to be stopped at all costs and once caught, should not recieve bail and if convicted, deserve prison for life or the death penalty - their choice. We MUST take back our streets, rid oursleves of these thugs and get these liberal judges to do their jobs. Everyone of every race who is a law abiding citizens needs to stand up and be heard, contact their elected officials, DA's Judges, etc. and DEMAND stronger punishments or even changes in our laws for violent criminals. Our Police keep arresting them and placing their lives on the line and the courts keep giving them more and more chances - enough is enough.

The chronicle needs to delete

The chronicle needs to delete their account. Nobody wants to hear this race nonsense everyday. The younger generation laughs at people over 40 when it comes to race realtions.
