First don't suggest moving, don't have the money.

in the last 3 days they have video of armed guys kicking in a door.''

a kid at school was stabbed to death at my old high school.

a guy in a wheelchair was mugged on camera.

school is dangerous....I'm afraid to send my 12 year old to school. home schooling is out because of my disabllity.

I think i will give him my pepper spray. Seriously im worried. what is this world coming too?

the school is incapable of stopping the violence. how can you get good grades when you fear for your life?

When I was in high school we had a "black" gang and if you were white and looked the wrong way at them you got an ass kicking.

i finally dropped out of high school because I feared for my life

my son is a good kid, i've taught him values and integrety and love for all people.

But i'm scared for him.

I lived in Miami from the age of 10 into my mid 30's. I have seen the best and the worst of the city. Trust me, Miami has been dangerous for a long time. I grew up and lived through several riots, drug dealers on every corner, and the growth of the inner city gangs.

It was and is scary, and is a big reason why I carry today.

But somehow, I got through my childhood, never took drugs, never went to jail, and stayed alive. I believe the reason for it was simple - I had parents and a family that guided me along the right path. I did not always make the right decisions, but I knew very well the difference between right and wrong, and how to stay away from those that were doing wrong.

Your son has a very powerful force backing him up - YOU!!!

Teach him through your example and guidance - that is all you can do. Then pray that he makes the right decisions and stays safe.

With all due respect I don't know if you meant it that way or not, but it sounds like you are implying a racial issue here.

That was not my experience growing up. I had more fights with those of my same race than those of other races. Bad kids are bad kids, regardless of race.

Not saying, just saying...

Please don't get me wrong. I am not calling anybody names. I don't want my comments to be misinterpreted either.

The fact is that race is a part of our lives whether we like it or not. I just wanted it to be clear that we should be careful when mentioning race in a thread like this because it can get ugly real quick. There are bad kids period.

I think we should make sure our kids know to be careful of the bad apples regardless of race that's all, the same type of situational awareness we as adults should adopt.

Guess my words didn't come across the way I wanted. My apologies if there were any misunderstandings.

Truce friends....
