This fits with the loss of moral compass...such a shame for all.

My question is whether, if they are guilty, is one year in jail the right sentence?

My question is if the girl is allowed to drink and carry on where the parents let her run wild, what behavior do they as parents expect from her? 30 years ago there were loose girls and once they started boozing the boys knew what to expect.I'd like to see the parents charged for child endangerment.

Well, swager, you might be right. If the parents had some skin in the kids and their actions, they might get involved before something like this happens.

By the looks of the track record of this City it appears there were quite a lot of adults that turned their cheeks when it came to adolescent behavior because of the pride of joy football team. Parties in Stue. ran rampant and many with adults at them from parents to school staff. They had numerous parties happening the night of this incident. They already had a few parents that have stated that this was not an isolated incident that this has been going on for some time and it was bound to happen. That is what makes this truly sad.

Ladybug I hope your comment was factious because kids drinking (+) occurs in every community which makes people do strange things that they later regret.

The normal liberal stand on things is...it goes on everywhere...all kids take drugs, all kids over drink, all kids rape, all kids cheat, and everyone lies---therefore it's ok.

Well, it's not ok.

I never said it was ok.

When people go into deanile and pretent this stuff doesn't happen in their area is when things get out of hand.

I guess it's easier for some to pretend. Until they get that phone call at 1am. or knock on the door.

ladybug, what I said has nothing to do with whether I know it's happening...I hear from so many liberals that it's happening. I ask, why are you letting it? What are you doing to stop it? Why just say it is what it is? How can you complain and not lift a finger to stop it?

I know you were a good parent who's kids are doing well, but, it just can't stop there. So many kids are left to find ways to cope and they make terrible choices and when they see older people act and even say, it is what it is...they keep doing what they're doing and worse.

Are you really satisfied with the moral compass in the US and even Salem right now? At this rate of decline, what's going to happen to our Grandchildren ans Great Grandchildren? If you say, that's the way it is...you are really saying you don't care, and I know better.

And, concerning politics...it has much to do with what we believe. I believe that unless we turn to God as a nation, we are on the road to destruction.

So which political party and political movement is closer to that and which is more apart from that?

And what would you suggest we all do ???

The country as a whole is sinking.And the only results we see coming from washington is more of the same .Finger pointing,name calling refusing to comprimise etc It's all about getting re-elected,money ,power and control.

You don't make sense Kozy.Where have you been for the last 2 decades? This whole country has been on a moral decline once we started elimanteing all the jobs in this country .

Our moral decline has very little or nothing to do with a lack of jobs. We have fewer jobs because we got greedy...

The moral decline is a result of people believing they are better and smarter than God. Then lying, stealing, abortion, ***********, killing, robbing, lust, demands to be taken care of, and on and on become ok.

The most important thing you can do is read the Bible, share with others what it has to say and stay true to God's leading. If each one of us does that, we will see a revival in America...and you can believe it. If we just say it is what it is...we lose.
