There are gangs for one there are a mexican gang floating around and bunch of wantabees. There a tag marks in some areas. These are gang markings. So dont be so stupid as to think there arent gangs in Lacey as there are drugs. There here!! If you didnt cut back on the police department to save money maybe things could get cleaned up. Some of you people need to wake up. You must be the ones that think NOT My Child??? Were are the parents? Give up somethings so you can keep an eye on your kids be part of there life. Most of these kids are throw aways and as soon as they are 18 they are out of the house. If not raising themselfs now. Think about it...

Your nephews family need to file charges against the kids that did it. This is under the new law The school is to be notified so with the police and school this should be covered as for protection. But a police report with charges against those kids need to be done. Your family needs to do it!!!!

Back in the day, if someone did this to your family member then they got the &^%(*^% kicked out of them by a big brother or an uncle or a father. the world protects the criminals now, not the victims. Eye for an eye!
