Toledo Riots

Every city has there problems. This weekend my city of Toledo had theres. This Neo-Nazi group came into our town to protest the unsafe neighborhood in our town. So what did either group accomplish, nothing. All it did was creat havoc. People were hurt that were innocent, people arrested, looting, and a building set on fire and property destroyed. I am wondering does it take more energy to hate or to love. Nothing was gained from this event. It stirred up emotion with people that didn't need to happen.It seems to me it would take up more energy to hate than love. People here are afraid of these gangs and every city has gangs and there share of problems with them. What the answers are I am not sure. I believe these kids join these gangs because they are missing something they didn't get at home. In the gangs theey feel they belong. Maybe I am wrong I don't truly know why kids join gangs. But maybe if things were different in there own front yard maybe they wouldn't venture out of it seeking approval somewhere else. Sincerely what is the answer? How can we change this hate into something positive? I wish I knew....What do you gain by hate? Please what are your views?

Kids join gangs to feel "safe". It started with 2 kids beating up one. The one went and got 3 of his friends, so the first gang war started.

If the neo-nutsies wanted to protest the unsafe streets, they certainly added to the instability of the situation. But then, if I remember my history of Germany correctly, that was what Hitler's National Socialist party WANTED to do in order to gain power... de-stabilize the authority.

Answers are more difficult. Should we ban all activities of the National Socialists? Then we are little more then they are and how long will it be before the ban is against something that we are part of? And where does the banning stop? Maybe we can continue to teach children about self-respect, using intelligence to solve problems and toleance/compassion. It takes time, patience and dedication, but it works to the benefit of society, not its downfall.

sorry to hear whats been going on...damn surprised the news wasnt front page here in cleveland but it did make the local news stations a friend told me...

well im no angel so i can honestly tell you why some kids join gangs...becouse most of the time its not even a real gang...its just some neiborhood kids wanting to hang out and sometimes they do things just becouse they are bored...i hate to say it but parents realy need to get more involved in there kids lives...and the city needs to up keep the play grounds and the activities that happen there...of course all cities have this problem...but the cities that put up rec. centers and places to hang out have less problems...while its very expensive to build and keep up the work on these places...our childrens futures are in our hands...they dont have rights to vote on a place to be built so they can hang out and learn sports and crafts and things like that...but we can vote on it...so is our childrens future worth it ??? i say yes at any cost becouse the children will inharet the earth from us...what will we leave them ??? ill go broke before i let my children get into the same stuff i been through...like i said im no angel !!!

thanks for the space to b-s some " hotlegs " !!!
