“This is just a new generation of youth coming up nowadays without those parents and without those mentors to give them that, so this is what’s taking place,” Thornton Jr. 说过. “But when you don’t have that accountability, it goes back to that. We don’t have that accountability, and you have distressed, government service and system city council within these cities, nothing’s going to change.”
