A teenager killed a baby, and it's just routine news. Possible gang ties, nothing to see here, gee that's sad but True Blood is on tonight.
I feel saddened that I'm starting to lose my hope that young criminals are able to see mercy and justice, and an opportunity to change. I'm starting to believe that there really is no hope for youth determined to live fast and die hard.
Angel was shot while in his father's arms. I wouldn't think anything could make this worse, but somehow that does.
