I guess you just can't help degenerates. If that was me (which I have been in a situation living in a rough area before) I'd just move out because I'm better than those people. This guy obviously tried to go the extra mile and has a good heart like his Dad, but look what happened. He should sell the house, build a bomb with the money and drop it on the town.

Or just enjoy a better life elsewhere.

Discuss.

Easier said than done guys. As someone who grew up in the "hood" or "ghetto" as it's often reffered to as, I can assure you it isn't that simple. Life is pretty rough in that environment, especially when you have nothing. I can understand why people act that way since I've been there, but it's no excuse for the behavior some display though. Ohio isn't exactly doing great economically speaking either. Cleveland is a prime example of it. (the west end compared to the east end)

I get what he's trying to do and it's commendable, but he needs to be smarter about his moves.

I think there's only so much that one person can do there. If he had more help from people in the community, then it would be easier to change the place.

If that's not a viable option, he should just sell his place and move to another place. He doesn't need to deal with those people. Granted, I applaud him for his actions since not many can choose to go up against a bunch of "thugs"

Yes, the last thing we need is to built a bomb and destroy a whole town.

They had a huge riot in the 60's and I was standing in Medina, (if memory serves about 28 miles away),And just watched the smoke billowing up on the horizon.

I'll never understand why people destroy the places they live out of emotion. Good reasons or not.

Because there is a chance there is a child in that ghetto who knows there are better things in the world for them than growing up to be a thug or public aid queen not every little black child will grow up to be a d*ck hopping hoe or a thug. I am black I do live in a bad area but I am no idiot I have witnessed these and many other things I am 16yo but at the same time I have a lot of sense for my age. And that man could of been an influence for that child to do better and try to get out.

You can't really help people who don't want help in the first place
