A Better Mid-South: Mob attacks man at gas station

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

You have no doubt seen the video of another mob attack at a gas station.

A woman was helped to her car by another customer, since she was scared to go alone because of a large group of teenagers gathered outside who appeared to be fighting.

The man who helped her to her car yelled at the teens in the process, and he was sucker punched.

I know we are all anxious for the police, the government, or someone in authority to solve this problem, but I have to ask-- where are the parents?

I've got to think that this type of behavior has to start at home.

These kids appear to be out of control and have either little or no respect for their fellow human beings.

I think we could all take a look at our own families and ask, "Are we raising our children to love and respect others?"

Where do you lay the blame for attacks like this? The parents, police, government officials?

Parenting our children and teaching them right from wrong will make this A Better Mid-South.
