More midnight basketball?

This past two weeks in Milwaukee saw two more mob beatings of people. Some here may recall a similar event last year when a 30 year-old man was beaten to death by 16 kids.

Earlier this week, a 54 year-old mentally ill man was beaten to death by a mob of punks. Then, just the other day, a mob of 20 punks beat a 14 year-old into a coma, using 2x4's, and any other club they could get their hands on.

Here's a couple of paragraphs from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's article on the beatings. See if you can find the irony.

"Ald. Willie Hines said the crime and the one that occurred on July 4, when a 54-year-old man with schizophrenia was attacked by a group of young men and later died, highlight the need for more youth programs."

"Trouble began Thursday when there was a shoving match between the 14-year-old victim, who was with two brothers, and a younger boy during a recreation program at Brown Street Academy, the sister said."

More midnight basketball?

Yeah, Clinton started that crap, as a way to keep "inner city youths (that's liberal code for black kids) out of trouble at night.

How rascist can they get? As if black kids will just quit whatever they're doing if you throw them a basketball. There was a bad joke using that theme.:scrutiny:
