    So sad, parents try hard to make a good life for their children,move out of the city to escape the crime that has unfortunately followed them and snuffed out the life they tried to protect. Parents we must fight to put in end to this contagious senseless crime of murder that our youth are committing . We did not become parents to bury our children.These killers are crack babies who are now destroying the rest of the race of people.
