    This seems to be a daily news story. What is causing young people in south Seattle to keep shooting, robbing and mugging each other? is the hip hop culture? Is it the EBT cards? Is the fancy community center? Free housing? No future for gangsters.

      lack of parental supervision when they are younger. what I don't get is why is this news? These animals are doing this to each other in this part of town every day. Leave them alone to finish each other off.

    EBT cards? Free housing? Are you dumb. Guess that was rhetorical based on you comment.

      Could be the baggy pants combined with skipping school. Life is cheap in the southend.

    If they are just gangbangers shooting one another, who cares?

      When an innocent citizen gets caught in the crossfire, it's a big problem.

    Is this related to the shrine growing on the corner of 28th and Jackson and the new tags on Seattle Girls School?
