Lots of Thug Life out there. Embolden, yet stupid. Loud, yet immature. So many factors play into the Thug Life mindset.

See, Thug Life existed long before the claims of systematic racism, being poor, disadvantaged, and uneducated. Only when Thug Life faces the possibility of a lengthy incarceration do they pull out the "Woe is me" card.

I for one, don't feel sorry for Thug Life. In fact, when Thug Life is introduced into the prison population, they soon realize that their fellow Thug Life don't care about them either. Wow, talk about coming full circle. What comes around goes around, right?

It's vicious cycle, but one that Thug Life can't seem to break. In other words, some people are just plain evil and don't want to change. However, the excuse makers for Thug Life - that of the BLM clan, Antifa, and Social Justice Warriors, will pardon Thug Life no matter the offense.

A sad state of affairs.

The progressive left should not be condoning this type of violence based on the sociological and economic backgrounds of the perpetrators.

Like cigarettes, no one is born with a deadly firearm in their hands.

It is time to curtail random violence by incarcerating the criminals to a fuller extent with harsher mandatory sentencing guidelines.

Bring back the Three Strikes Rule as well.
