1. Did you read the first line of the article? The money is being taken by the government from his disability paycheck. Disability checks come from the government.

  2. Seriously? Juvenile detention has nothing to do with school - it's incarceration for kids. Did you even read the article? Here it describe what house arrest and home detention are:

    "House arrest is typically assigned to young people after they are arrested and before they go to court. Home detention is an alternative to incarceration after a young person has been found guilty."

  3. What else were the juveniles charged with? Consumption of alcohol is a status offense and you can't detain a juvenile on that charge alone.

  5. Oh, give me a break. The Carson's in Hammond is not in an unsafe area. Yes, the Wal-Mart nearby attracts some "less than desirable" customers, but calling it "Little Beirut" is a huge exaggeration.

  7. You do realize you have to maintain a certain GPA in high school (3.0) and in college (2.0) in order to receive the College Bound scholarship? It's not just given out to every student whose parents own a home in Hammond. You do have to earn it. Many of my high school classmates and I are College Bound recipients, and we have graduated in four years with GPAs significantly higher than a 2.0.

    I also want to point out that there are many people who don't fall into a low enough income bracket in order to receive federal assistance (other than loans). Scholarships like this help reduce their debt.

    Finally - the mayor's daughter attends Ball State (located in Indiana!).
