Are Children More Violent Today Than Ever Before?

There have been several acts of violence lately involving teens or young adults. Alonte Sutton was killed over the weekend, and then UVA lacrosse star Yeardley Love last week. Fellow student-athlete George Huguely is charged in the Love case.

Back in April 15th, DC Shaw Middle School Principal Brian Betts was murdered in his home. Among those charged are three 18-year-olds: Sharif T. Lancaster, Alante Saunders and Deontra Q. Gray.

On March 30th, there was a drive-by shooting on South Capitol Street, killing four. Among those charged are Orlando Carter, 20, Robert Bost, 22, Jeffrey D. Best, 21, and Lamar Williams, 22.

A new Associated Press-GfK out reports 38-percent favor US cars while only 33-percent prefer Asian brands, a significant improvement for Detroit compared to four years ago.

In a December 2006 AP-AOL poll, 46 percent said Asian countries made superior cars, while just 29 percent said American automakers did.

Sales tracking firms have confirmed that Toyota’s market share has gone down while Detroit’s Big Three rose in the last month.
