It's pretty damn sad that folks would want to copy cat an eating of a human or snort something that would make you want to eat anything more than a Twinky. Geeze, I thought we did some stupid stuff growing up in the '70s, guess every generation has to outdo their parents.
I wonder if the news media is failing to report this for a reason.
I know the Ponca City News owner refuses to publish anything related to gang activity, not only in the local news, but national as well.
His attitude is that reporting gang activity only makes wanna-be bangers want to join for the notariety. Yeah, we have gangs here, but I think for a city that is our size, we have less than others.
I don't think that is the situation at all.
Young folks think that gang life is cool because they make movies about it glorifying the gangsta life.
For the life of me, I don't understand how a youngster can be impressed by a poor uneducated person hanging around a phone booth to make a drug deal, or lamp post making stupid gang signs to do the same.
Trust me I know about peer pressure.
Or how do they think going to prison is cool! The whole gang thing puzzels me when you have to let 'em beat the living snot out of you just to get in. Same for the biker gangs. But I guess the military could be considered a gang but just of a slightly different bent.
