What I see is quite prevalent in the US, especially in what is called “ghettos”, which are small areas where the poor are forced to live. There is a liquor store “on every corner” in alot of cases. Many have claimed that the government infiltrated the drugs as a means of destroying the poor who live there. And I wouldn’t be surprised. Alcohol and drug abuse does produce violence, particularly in those who are oppressed financially. The end result is that our children grow up with no hope of any kind of decent future, and they act out on that premise. Something must be done to ensure the children’s hope for a future, otherwise all is lost. Sooo sad!!!
