    "If we were to deal with criminals the way the Saudis do, I can assure you there would be WAY less crime and WAY less folks in prison."

    And if we were to have a system like the Saudi's do, our women would be wrapped up in blankets locked in their houses all day. Please, grow up with statements like the ones above. Punishment for people like this is not a deterrent enough. Perhaps a system in which hard work really is rewarded well, there would be incentive for these kids to stay in school and become productive adults. When one has a sense of self accomplishment and self worth, one does not need to put a gun into their hands and go around without hope needing to deel worth while and powerful.

    "Gee, I sure hoped the Mayor of Durham learned a lot about how to handle crime from Saudi Arabia last month."

    He learned the quickest way to take off a hand is with an axe. Probably wouldn't go over very well in America.

    It's not a gang problem, its a culture problem. Its really very simple. Look at any high crime area and see who lives there. You could take these people, give them a million dollars each, give them a home in Beverly Hills and within six months, Beverly Hills would be a war zone. We skirt the issue with "gangs", "poverty", "fatherless homes" and any other feel good explanation. Look at the kids of the depression era. They did not all turn into criminals, they fought WW2, worked hard and built a great nation. We have multi-million dollar athletes that carry on this same behavior. Its all about culture. The state of WV is one of the nations poorest states, but yet has one of the lowest crime rates. The only way to save these kids is to have REAL consequences for this kind of behavior.

    '"The shooting happened around 11 p.m. at the intersection of Main and Elm streets."

    Three people shot on a Durham street corner at 11pm. Name one thing, other than a drug deal gone bad, that would have caused this shooting.'

    Here's eomthing else it could have been: A drug deal gone good.
