Life sure is cheap in Steubenville rape is even cheaper. That's why they do it he'll be out in a few years to do it again. Oh yea having a bad childhood or songs don't make you a murderer. Not being punished makes you not afraid to do it.

I feel for both of the families involved. There can't be real justice in the sense we know when a child brutally murders another child especially when the victim was a friend. It would be nice if once, just once those thugs hanging out on our street corners and convenience stores would stop being so selfish and think about the youth who can see what they're doing first. We, as parents, need to be proactive and make sure our children aren't around these types of people. "Gangsta" rap isn't any better either. Children are impressionable, what outcome does one expect when they listen to that trash and see the behavior of the thugs on our streets? It is high time we take back our streets and make those thug leaches of society feel unwelcome.
