    Idle hands are the devils workshop. As the weather warms the inner city yoot will be searching for an outlet. Watch your back in the urban areas. Watch each other’s back. If possible, avoid anything urban.

    I think Washington should pass bills forbidding the use of knives. Illinois shoud hurry up and pass a CCW bill,

    A few more details would be nice. There are usually a number of apparently unemployed blacks who hang out on that block at all hours of the night. If they stabbed each other, it wouldn’t be as shocking as it would if a white guy, such as a grad student, had been stabbed.
