  • Hmm very sad!

  • Since we are all in charge of raising these juveniles, I would vote for a work-release program and have these kids out picking up trash, pulling weeds, cleaning up RCP and the Anacostia River shorelines all day long. They seem to be in desperate need of something to do.

    • Why are we all in charge of raising them?

      • Judging by all the programs we are paying for (jobs training, mentoring, Barry’s summer employment program), and by the alarming rate of crime committed by these kids, it seems that yes, we are responsible for raising them.

        • So Hill Easter, you know that the kids who are being arrested are in those programs? Maybe the kids in those programs are benefitting and the kids getting arrested have slipped through the cracks? It sounds just as likely that this might be a sign that the programs aren’t reaching them or might need to be fixed.
          When people talk about “these kids” it always sounds to me like they are saying something else.
          For those who feel obliged to complain about “these kids,” come join us at a school mentoring program or with Big Brothers/Big Sisters or any of the dozens of other programs that are out to connect people in the city and offer alternatives.

          • Serious question, would you mind giving some links for the volunteering programs that you mentioned? I should be able to find Big Bro/Sis info, but what are some of the other programs you’d recommend? Reach out to neighboring schools directly?

          • My guess is “these kids” means these kids that were arrested in this article.

  • For those who were asking, I’ll give a plug for a great organization I volunteer with. It’s called College Bound and it works with DC students throughout the various Wards. Here is the link:
