The Ghetto Mentality on Full Display

Work the "under-served" portions of Chicago and you get jaded. There's no way around it. You try to explain to people - your normal, well-adjusted friends, that the mind-set of ghetto denizens is quite different from 99% of Americans, and your friends look at you like you just decried the wonders of the Third Reich.

Well here's a snippet that wonderfully illustrates the dilemma that most law enforcement personnel see day in, and day out in America's inner-cities. This clip is from Fox News Memphis. It reports on a house fire in which the mother and "auntay" of a 2 and 3 year old, left the house to drive "some dude" home who "cuts the grass", and while away, the house caught on fire.

One of the boys died, the other is in critical condition.

Watch all the way to the end when the "auntay" claims to have "no regrets" for leaving the little ones home alone to burn in a house fire. Her only regret, she says is that she needs to "get in there" to see "if my purse burned up with my food stamp card and everythang" might be in there.

She even adds a snicker as if the whole thing is funny. Well ma'am, it's not funny and you're a fucking piece of shit for leaving a 12-month old and a 36 month old to fend for themselves for lord-knows-how-many hours while you drove "dude" around, no doubt looking for a place to buy a blunt and hit a Forty.

Yea, they're just like you and me - right.

That's why the Black community needs to address these types of issues within their own ranks.

I wonder who they're going to sue for the "wrongful" death lawsuit heading to the City of Memphis' city hall.

Working the westside all those years............... None of my non police friends believed what I was talking about...... The liberal bloggers on yahoo called me a racist...... This is a tragic event, It just shows, the SAVAGES are out there, and continue to act like SAVAGES because they are SAVAGES. WE aren't jaded. We are informed about the real world. The world the MSM won't report on. Maybe now just a little bit. These people are everywhere. The only thing they care about is their money and link cards......... They are animals. It is time to expose more and more of these animals to the general public so they see where our tax dollars are going!

Great blog Rue. Good to see ya, and stay safe out there.

Is all the white folks fault. When are those half million dollar reparations checks coming out that Obama promised?

"You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation..

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Adrian Rogers, 1931
