  1. This is a terrifying glimpse into the underworld created by our culture of violence, and the closed world of young men in poverty, shut out from opportunities and any other future.

    1. Glad,

      I don’t disagree with your comment about young men & women without opportunities – and they live everywhere, not just Weston.

      Obviously, Weston is not the same place it once was decades ago where many opportunities were available to just about anyone not shy about labour, even if the prospects were not sexy.

      A decent paying job was just that, a decent paying job, even if just a factory job at CCM.

      It was a respectable choice, for many.

      Clearly, opportunities like that in most blue collar towns are long gone. And, adapting to a new normal is tough on everyone, especially our youngsters – in need of support, guidance and education.

      However, your other perspective, “the underworld created by our culture of violence” is somewhat interesting and puzzling to one who grew to understand the very dangerous consequences of crossing a legal line that might lead to a negative life – a life of crime.

      Many of us are lucky to still have a voice of conscience that is ever present, thanks to the consistent hard work, guidance and love from family & friends who have helped us make better choices.

      Oddly, those drawn toward gangster or mobster life seem to understand that the fast road they travel may end poorly. And yet, they still make that choice in view of quick, lucrative payoffs.

      Dangerous choices.

      And that, perhaps comes from our culture that seems to value slick entertainment & the glamour of celebrity more than anything else, even if it’s negative and deadly.

  2. What a thoughtful comment, and very true observations. The glorification of violence in video games, movies etc involves minimizing consequences, and young people growing up without strong support are vulnerable.

    That’s the glamour, as you say. We need to do better.
