    I really don't see a problem with it:
    What I do have a problem with is, that with the growing issue of gangs, legally armed citizens are not permitted to carry in county parks around here. Strangely enough last summer there were several shootings in a local park. I guess the criminals didn't read the sign. :upeyes::faint::dunno:

    Criminals need to pay the price or what they do. I like the Sheriffs thinking. The gang member will end in jail or dead anyway eventually.

    So I wonder how many immediately claimed that statement is racist.

    So it's racist to stop gang crimes and gangsters now?

    One of the best way of avoiding gangs is making sure that all these kids will be growing up with their daddies.

    Now I read the story and comments. Gee, how surprising that someone decided it was a racist comment. Glad I'm sitting down.

    Sounds good to me! The days of feel good wisdom are over. They did interview one citizen that had a clue...holding his/a child.

    I couldn't believe it either. Racist? No. Inflammatory? Hell yes, but if they have a problem then the Sheriff is sending a clear message. Just by reading that article there might be a couple less gang members that think twice about going out with a "bang."

    I don't see how it is perceived as racist. Are gangs a race now? Last time I checked, gangs come in all colors of the spectrum.

    I admire his grit...but here is the problem

    "Get out of town" only puts the problem in your neighbor's yard

    "go to jail" only means I as a taxpayer am paying for your cable, gym membership and three hot meals a day

    "or go to the funeral home"...well no argument there.

    The wherabouts of gang members is not a mystery to local law enforcement. Its easy to talk tough. Harder to suit your officers up and go shake 'em down.

    Man this just makes me sad/angry/embarrassed. It seems that the overwhelming majority of Americans are SOFT and are ok being VICTIMS. I almost think that if some of the people in today's society had been in a situation like the revolutionary war...we would not be free. I know that we DO have strong brave people out there, but they are fewer and further between.

    Only racists take non-racially segregated crime statistics and non-racially based statements and call them racist.

    You have to be a card carrying racist to find racism where it cannot exist.

    Ah yes, the "offended" group rears their ugly heads again.

    He said they should leave town or they would/could, end up in jail, or the funeral home. IMO, he meant that their own behavior and/or actions would put them in one or the other.


    I don't know.........seems most of those always offended folks get that way when they see or hear anything that they just don't want to see, or that they simply don't want to know. Appears anything that intrudes on their comfortable self generated illusions "offends" them any more. And everyone knows the Constitution gives us all the right not to be offended ya know? Now where is that darned old govt to protect my right not to be offended when ya need 'em, eh?

    Appears to me that way too many people..... who would just rather not be aware of the reality in which they live that they evidently see as just to intense, ugly, and difficult for them to take, bless their little oh so sensitive hearts. They simply don't want to face the truth of their world, so everything that tends to do so offends them to no end.


    Just my little ol' offensive opinion I suppose.

    I was kinda hoping the occupy fleabags were going to pitch their tents in said park, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.

    Yeah, that darned old rule of law/what's right that so many seem to need to think their military needs to play by......shucks, they even demand it....sure can be a stickler, eh?


    But when there's something in their society that would make them safer, stands a very good chance of keeping them out of harms way, and certainly lets them live with less fear..............most of all less fear, forget the law/rules/what's right................get the job done, right now.

    Shoot, I'm scared and could get hurt if they don't. I'll get to war later, after I'm safe, ya know?
