Our young people are screaming for help...
Recently in the North End there was a string of robberies committed over a series of days. All around my hood. I recently posted an article talking about police brutality and how our young offenders are so young especially in our area.
Oh man folks, I just got a police update that confirmed what I was talking about on Sunday. Find below the ages and charges that are being laid as a result of these young peoples' actions:
A 16 year old male has been charged with: Robbery with a Weapon x 4 and Disguise with Intent x 4. He was detained.A 15 year old male has been charged with Robbery with a Weapon x 3 and Disguise with intent x 3. He was detained.A 14 year old male has been charged with Robbery with a Weapon x 3 and Disguise with intent x 3. He was detained.A 13 year old female is facing charges of: Robbery with a Weapon and Disguise with Intent. She was released on a Promise to Appear.
If that isn't a reality check for police, politicians and our whole Winnipeg community as a whole that are young people need some damn help I don't know what is.
I am sick and tired of seeing the young people that I love being turned to desperation and think this is ok. I cannot allow it to happen with these young people that I love anymore.
Please come out to our event GET REAL This saturday at Turtle Island so we can tell these politicians to smarten up, and start working WITH our young people so that this kinda shit can stop happening NOW.
Love people, please just LOVE.
