    I see a lot of people here pointing out we shouldn't make this about race, and that murderers can be any race. While this is true and we can't let crimes like this spawn racist attitudes, there is a higher percentage of this occuring in the black community. To ignore this inconvenient fact is irresponsible. There are some root causes that can be traced and influenced by black leaders, such as a higher illegitimacy rate.

    A name does not determine your fate. How you are perceived prior to introducing yourself? Sure? What you do in life? No? That is up to the individual.

    As previously stated...don't make this a race issue. SMDH, there's one in every crowd.

    "If society "wakes up" they will see this is not just a black problem. There has been a downward sprial for "youth" in general." shicksx2

    Very valid points... I think this is more or less a youth or societal ill than one of race...

    @notagain1903 - I would have to agree with you, this a growing problem with the youth in the black community... and trust me the community is wide awake and aware of the problem. Like most things in society today, we can point out the problems, but do not have many solutions. Many of the problems start in the home, and the next step is education, which Chief Dolan has stated. As a black mother, raising two black males, I will work to my dying to day to make sure my sons are contributing members of society. And you are correct, there was a lot of blood shed, sweat, and tears from our ancestory for black america to be in the state it is currently in...but like hardwork919 pointed out the majority of blacks do not fall in the category your speaking of... sure blacks may be more prevelent in the media, but it's the media... If society "wakes up" they will see this is not just a black problem. There has been a downward sprial for "youth" in general.

    In agreement with one posts, all BLACK men are not murderers. They are WHITE murderers, LATINO murderers, murderers of all races. There are African americans who go to work, have good jobs, educated and care about making a good life for themselves and their children and live in beautiful homes. You have good parents of all races that teach and train their kids to be respectful, live responsibly; however, some children get into the wrong crowds. Whatever the reasons, it's a shame these young men feel like they have nothing to live for than a life of crime. Sure there are some people who would love nothing more to hold us back, but we can't even let that hinder us. Too many opportunities out here to succeed. It's time to stop all this violence and get a sense of pride about oneself and do better. Stop blaming others. If you don't succeed in one area, seek out another, but keep trying.

    I can't help but think that what name a parent chooses for their kids affects how they turn out in some way. Can't put my finger on it, but there has to be a correlation.

    It's someone else's fault that they are downtrodden so they have to act this way. Haven't you heard? That's the general excuse for the younger generation these days.

    "Again 5 Black men accused of Murder. What is it going to take to make that community wake up and raise their young to be contributing members of society and not a drain on the prison system? This is not the 1800's your great- great- great grandfasthers got their freedom and you are giving it back to sit in a cell the rest of your life!!!! They have got to be rolling over in their graves for the fight they had to see you waste it on your "Home Boys"!!!" notagain1903

    Let's not turn this into a race thing... there are people of all races committing all types of crimes... we don't condemn all white people even though the majority of serial killers are usually white... so why is it when it comes to Black people, we're all under the same umbrella? The majority of Black people go to work, come home and provide for their families... don't let the media have you thinking that we're all killers, robbers and drug-users... *RANT OVER*
