Unfortunate headline but Wise Words

Sebastion has the skinny on the headline. But the article is well worth reading. Towards the end of it Sheriff Brad Steube steps in with this;

Steube also pleaded for parents to help in the fight against guns and drugs, saying law enforcement can react to crime but cannot instill morals in those willing to take a life. “I am upset. I am mad. I want the community to step up,” Steube said.

County Commissioner Gwen Brown also jumped into the fray with these words;

Commissioner Brown also pushed for parents to get involved in their children’s lives, a step that may save a life as the homicide rate in Manatee County has reached an all-time high.

Here is a tragic death of a teenager and very unusually the adults involved are stepping up and talking sense about what needs to be happening to address the issue rather than calling for more laws that are already being broken.
