A student is gunned down at Cape Fear HS in Fayetteville. Law enforcements response, "don't believe she was the target, not gang related".
A fight breaks outs at West Bladen HS and the law enforcements respnse, "not gang related".
Does this sound like MOST law enforcement and school higher ups are "trained" to give the same answer?
What is it going to take for the truth to finally come out about what is going on in our schools? Did West Bladen's principal misspeak when she said the incident "was related to gang activity"?
Will this precious grandmother of three students at West Bladen have to sacrifice one of her grandson's before this "gang situation" finally is uncovered? All parents and grandparents of students certainly hope not.
One thing is for sure, the law enforcement and school officals had better start tying to get to the bottom of this "gang activity" in our schools before a tradgedy happens.
Something as a simple interview with each high school student might be a good starting point. Only one question to start with, Do you know or have reason to believe that there is gang related activity on your campus? No names taken. I would venture to say that better then 50% of the answers would be in the affirmative. Then it would be time for anyone in law enforcement or among school officials who know one iota about gangs to go into action and root this activity out of our schools, our county, our state, and our nation.
The time is now, our students deserve an answer.
