    Peace made his own choice to be a criminal, as do so many others in his situation. Until we stop looking at them as victims and start expecting them to be lawful and moral adult citizens that situation will never change for them. It’s their choice and theirs alone, we can not make it for them.

    It’s sad what had happened to Robert Peace, but he did make his bed and now he has to lie in it. When going into distributing drugs, the distributor knows the pros and cons. Robert knew what he was getting into and he had a bright future ahead of himself considering he went to Yale. As a consequence of dealing, he has now left his mother without a son.

    This is an interesting news report. But this also reminds me of stereotyping. Some who kew Robert maybe thought that he was going to end up dead or in jail for the life he lived, but some probably thought his drive for an education would show him a better path a better way to live. Truly, if he used his brains and ambition to get a great career he could have fought his fathers case in a more professional manner. Instead, he chose the same life his father did ending up in a typical “black senenrio”, either locked up or dead”. Unfortunate, now a mother is without her husband and son.
