Teenagers and fights: My first thought after reading the article was, "Of course those kids are angry. They are sick and tired of living in poverty with no viable way OUT. " There are no jobs for them, precious little to motivate or encourage them to maintain hope that they can BE somebody and DO something meaningful. I'd be angry, too. Poverty is at the root of all evils in our city. Living with the deprivations and hopelessness every day is enervating. Let's see some work on THAT, instead of finger-pointing and posturing about who's at fault for the violent tendencies among the children.
