Today’s Breakfast Bite focuses on the youth of Baltimore – earlier this week a student at Frederick Douglass High School was charged as an adult with attempted murder. The charges stemmed from a fight at the school, in which the student brutally beat another student, his football teammate, allegedly over a stolen piece of football equipment. We want to know why you think the youth of today are so angry?

Keisha Henson I believe it is a lack of guidance, support from others outside of the household, major problems at home like drug, sexual abuse, mental and emotional abuse, and lack of morals and respect for life. People it is not always the home either and we need t…See More
Pebbles Lewis Dre Johnson, their homes are broken. The parents are barely older than their children and the police don’t allow you to tear their behind up when they’re doing wrong because there’s so many cases of child abuse. The kids are basically running these houses today. #NOTMINE
Kizzie HoldingItdownsolo Cutes These children today swear they have to prove themselves. He probably got carried away because of the other children cheering him on
Josey Wales Lack of guidance,no positive reinforcement. They need something positive to strive for instead of getting praised for being the “big gangster,goon,thug,bullshit rapper.” Let these Lil ni**** know it’s cool to be a brain surgeon or a high paid lawyer,or a teacher.

Kellie Knight Mental health is a serious issue in the Baltimore City Public School System
Dishae Thomas Lack of love &&attention. Now days u have absent parent and the other just don’t care what u do. He had so much anger inside. Its more to him being mad over a hat. That was a mess
Sachae Carter It starts at home, I know from experience growing up in a violent environment , I became very violent as a youth thinking everyone wanted to attack me, but as I got older and my mind fully developed and matured I understood and knew how to handle things, so instead of just throwing him in prison, try getting him some help. However, he should have consequences.

Denise Lumpy Robbins I think when a kid is hugged and told often how much he is loved I think it helps them to be kind to others. A lot of kids don’t get that today.

Damien Marcano I blame the internet. It gives too much information to the wrong people. Now a days everybody thinks they know everything. All because Google tells them.
Shaneka Johnson Because their parents are trying to be their friend instead o f being there PARENT….. they need love some one to really vent too and also they don’t know the true meaning of being a friend they need to get off of social media and all these electronic they don’t know what it is to go outside and play to have true real friends I’m almost 28 and when I was young we was outside playing we got punish and all and kids today don’t have that love and support from the communities and parents just don’t care like they use to…. they just need to be shown that it’s a better way to release stress and angry it’s always a better way
