16 y/o Charged in Capitol Heights Murder. When will my people wake up!! I am glad that this man turned himself in, but my heart is heavy this morning. Where was his parental control? Why was he out that late at night? Who is responsible for his upbringing.
His parents should be held partly responsible as well. I know raising children are hard, but there comes a time where you have to be proactive. If you area single parent who can’t keep up with your child, there are many local youth mentoring programs in the Washington, D.C. area. There are black men in these organizations waiting to reach out to the black youth. You can’t do it alone, it is not a sign of weakness to ask for help. Black parents, please stop neglecting our children!!!!! Wake up!! If you are one other “responsible parents” then reach out and join a program and give back. Stop hiding behind your gated communities in and luxury housing complexes in Prince George’s County and do something!!! Our county is going to hell in a hand-basket fast!!!! Our County Executive and other law makers don’t give a damn unless we give a damn!!!
Here is an excellent piece speaking on the issue: Time for Parents to do their job
