Even at home doing their homework, our children continue to be let's talk about THIS during a presidential debate!!!

Capt. Brad Wells with the Madison County Sheriff's Department said Delarrian was minding his own business when he was killed early Tuesday at his home in Madison, Illinois, just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis.

Investigators found pencils and notebook paper near his body, indicating he was working on homework.

This should never happen! We need to keep all of the children safe especially when they are in their own home. What kind of a monster
would shoot at a child????????

Drive by shootings are fairly common in the Houston area, and usually involve either a very young person or an elderly person dying. It is so sad that noone can really feel safe! Losing a child like this must be devastating; my thoughts are with his family. Sadly noted, Kat.

I continue to get infuriated during our Presidential debates when every subject (yes, even the economy) is about some overseas country.....what are these guys thinking? I get that we must protect our country, and I so love each and every person protecting us, but we TRULY have some serious issues right here at home that need immeidate attention!! Crime is only going to get worse in this economy - due to depression, lack of $'s, and especially, drugs.

Why aren't our presidential candidates at all concerned with these issues??? They also affect each and every American.
