So what can be done to break that cycle other than make one of those things far less appealing?
 
This teen pregnancy thing didn't become "no big deal" /common place until the 90's.
Your azz would've gotten thrown out the house -eta- or that mofo would've had to marry and provide for you and that baby, so you gave more thought to the repercussions. (reminds me of some threads on BHM on what would u do if your teen daughter got pregnant)
 
Many young teens don't panic when they get pregnant nowadays, why?
 
a.Because oft times their mothers (and grandmothers),did the same thing. She's not going to punish her, she's going to throw her a shower and brag about it.
 
b. They will get funding to support the baby. If they have another one, they will get even more.
 
So generation after generation of 14-17 yr olds raising kids, with the mindset, decision making of raising kids being done by KIDS, what do you think the end result would be?
 
Put a bunch of 14-17 yr old boys and girls on an island, come back 50 years later, how do you think the kids there are going to carry themselves? How their decision making skills are?
 
That's what we are seeing now..And the Public Assistance system encourages/perpetuates this.
 
"They" knew what they were doing when it was created. Us killing each other, "they" don't have to bother.
 
"Assistance" my azz.

I actually live in this neighborhood and that young lady went to my alma mater. It was heartbreaking to hear that that had happened so closely to my home and to someone so young, who was doing nothing more than her usual routine. 

I couldn't help but cry. It's getting so bad here. I'm fearful because there is no such thing as a "safe neighborhood" here. It's trickling everywhere. There are just so many youth out here who have nothing else better to do and nowhere to turn but to the streets.

It's such a shame and I get so sad every time I hear about it.

Public assistance programs, created in during the Great Depression (1935-ish), were designed to destroy black folks?

Interesting....

Two questioned in Hadiya shooting

By Alexandria Fisher, NBCChicago.com

Police arrested two suspects Sunday morning who are being questioned in the death of slain teen Hadiya Pendleton, officials confirmed with NBC.

The suspects were pulled over early this morning around 67th Street and South Chicago Avenue after detectives canvassed the area around Harsh Park, Chicago police said.

Sources close to the investigation said no charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing.

The new information comes one day after First Lady Michelle Obama attended the funeral for the 15-year-old, whose death has put Chicago gun violence in the spotlight.

It also follows the announcement of President Obama's plans to address gun violence in the city.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel called the teens mother Cleopatra Pendleton this morning to tell her the news, sources told NBC Chicago.

Reward leading to her killer last stood at $40,000
