That video is a sad indictment on the state of civility in our city. Adults standing by as kids engage in fighting, some of them even egging them on, or partaking. Kids acting like that is just disappointing, but the behavior of the adults is even more reprehensible. The realist in me shakes his head and mutters something along the lines of "this is why we can't have nice things" and "yeah, not surprised at all". The city can't just throw a park in the middle of that neighborhood and expect it to work out dandily without supervision and/or constant patrols. This is not the first incident in the park for this Summer, and it will not be the last. The city ought to really evaluate the situation and come up with some measures to prevent more issues. Why spend all that money and let it all go to waste? There has to be a longer, more consistent commitment to the park than just the initial photo-op from its inauguration.

The above link is of a Facebook video of what really happened. Seems like the victims (or at least one) were the ones jumping another girl and got stabbed by a family member of the girl they jumped.

You can't help those who refuse to accept it.


Actually, it may be challenging, but you can still prosecute without cooperation of the victim.

Here it is again - is this fear of reprisals, distrust for Police, a sense that there is no justice, or all of the above?

"Both the 15-year-old and her aunt refused medical attention. They were "uncooperative and just wanted to go home," the report indicates."
