    Politicians and businesses should look no further than thier own houses for the source of this problem. Pointing the finger of blame on family troubles is ridiculous

    Teens have too much time on thier hands for 3 basic reasons. As a sign of disrespect to the younger generation, politicians slashed education budgets, eliminated after school activities and summer rec programs. They have closed pools and systematically eliminated constructive activites for youth.

    Businesses now rarely hire anyone under the age of 18. 16 year olds should be learning the work ethic, not be forced to hang out on the street because no one will hire them. A little money in thier pockets makes all of the difference between being able to engage in constructive activities and hanging around bored looking for entertainment.

    If you want to stop tagging, start by providing constructive activities for teens. It may be too late for many of these kids since the damage was begun years ago. But you might be suprised at the results if you actually decided to show some respect to young people and provided opportunities for them.

    its time to bring back the jobs and recreation programs for teens. If you won't provide constructive pastimes, stop complaining about the results. Make a choice Pay for proper education or Pay to clean up tagging.

    If you don't want your kids to dis you by tagging, Stop dissing them by eliminating things that are important to them like education and rec programs. Give them a real chance to work and prove themselves. Respect goes both ways!
