Of course, probably like many of you, I have been seriously contemplating if there really is a cure to our homemade problems with gang violence and my thinking of charging, and treating them as terrorists.
I read some one's commentary who stated that all of this is simply human nature.
That is a lot of commentary posted up there in that link, but it proved valuable to me because, while I do not profess to know the solution, I WANT IT TO STOP NOW!
I can only point out some of the problems that I see.

I have faith that next summer people will be able to walk to their neighborhood grocer without being gunned down by untrained assassins.
