In the end, the kids get the short end of the stick
On one hand, people are alarmed over the amount of violence in Hartford's north-end. On the other hand, people screw the kids in the North-end out of every program designed to keep them off the streets.
As a former resident of the North-end who once worked at a youth center, this news comes as no surprise (unfortunately).
Don't be "alarmed" if you take everything away from the kids...
