MCPS says gang members 'feel unloved at home'

An official MCPS flyer about gangs says that gang members tend to "feel unloved at home, do poorly in school, and have difficulty in making decisions and communicating with others."

The gang problem at Churchill has little to do with race and lots to do with poor parenting.

Superintendent Weast and the Board of Education ought to back off Churchill Principal Joan Benz and give her the support she needs.

As for the parents of the 54 MOB thugs, if they look in the mirror, they'll see who is most to blame for their kids' criminal conduct.
