A 16 year old boy with a felony warrant parole violation, meth, and syringes???? The other stuff unfortunately business as usual in Newark, and I'm sure it isn't all listed but holy cow, the 16 year old is going to be dead before 18.

That's what caught my attention. I had to stop and read the story to my family. 16? Felony? Syringes? I'm saddened to here a boy so young with so much trouble.

That's so sad. The city and school district should start working arm in arm to get these kids off the street and into programs to keep them busy with academics. Marken is upping grad requirements now, but I think the city should offer the Silliman Center as an after school activity center for NUSD kids, tuturoing, mentoring, sports programs. Funding would be solicited from private businesses. It would be run very similarly like a Boys and Girls Club.
