mersenaries. >> we have seen them be effective which is part of the califade under islamic state b i think we need special forces boots on the grounds. we need to work with the suny tribes in the past that we have worked with to keep the islamic state and keep the rise of iran and this is terrible strategicc part that i think to help the iranians. i was told that we got yesterday american special forces units working with hezbela in syria now. this is of course part of this enterprise. we have got to be clear. we face dangers from gihidas and
it's personfied by the regime. i think there are special united states forces that don't want these outcos as we do. >> we have a few more mininutes here and then i'll wrap. isis seems to do a very good job of understanding our weaknesses. why don't we exploit theirs? >> it's a very good point. i thin we are trying but i don't think w are doing a very good job. isis is proving to be a very effective enemy because there are a bunch of guys that used to work for sadam hussein so you have to look at this as not just an extremist army but a very conservative army that more
efeffectively will work on countering their propganda. the united states hasn't seen this in forever and we don't know how to respond to an enemy that is this crafty and clever. >> we got to be clear with who the enemy is. when you fail to recognize what is being done here is in fact, being done in the name of an authority rendering of sheria, you fail to be able to wage a counterlogal campaign. this is what is appealed to so many in the muslim world. they think this is the real deal. we need to continue to go back at that. as the president said, the islamic state has nothing to do with iran. > james matthews, mr. mcginnisis.
artur it's a long time since i have seen you. long time. you know we talk about mentoring in so many ways but what i wouould like for us to do in the first few minutes is you know that i was on a serious show last week and we have this young teenage that join us every wednesday and friday. he opened my eyes to something i was beingshocked by. he said a lot of these young boys eight and nine years old are given guns used as drug mules for adults knowing that the kids wonon't be arrested. i said given guns? he was telling us about that 10-year-old that was killing left and right and was causing so much trouble for the gang members that the they gang to
kill them. where are the parents. how do the kids eight and nine years old get involved in such a tragic life? >> i can speak for baltimore. many of the homes are being run by single women. there are many missing fathers and many young mothers try to become friends with that young man and they are able to stay out later. >> we are not talking about 14-year-olds we are talking about 8, if you're going to do it at 8, you're going to start it at 6. it seems like the child is running the household. >> like you said, the streets are more powerful than the household. the streets are more powererful and they have more influence. it's almost like mcdonalds. it's like some people say i
would never eat at mcdonalds anymore but mcdonalds is right down the street and it's convenient and available. so whatever is available people will do it without even thinking about it. >> think about it many of our young people want the latest jordans and wnt the latest outfit and many of these kids don't think they are going to live past a certain age. i am not going to liveo 21 and they want to experience everything that they wouldn't have been experiencing otherwise. having dough and having women and that impresses people. i think everything is so messed up to the african american community. that's why we need positive people to show them to take them places and consistent. my yes has to be yes and my no has to be no. when you do something wrong. mr. williams, give me 25 push
ups. will is no dcipline in many of our homes and many of the young peop get into the behavior that you're speaking of. >> we're going to take and come back. i never thought that i would ever think that a young man being raised by the wrong single mother could be in one of those dangerous places in america. >> yes, sir. >> if she is not raising that child or doesn't know how to instill discipline. it shows some of us firsthand the real impact of a father not being in that household. off baby yoyou have babies 7 and 8 out there shooting too. you wonder why the community is in
them at an earlier age. we should be in the elementary schools. i work with the male and female population. in maryyland i work with the young ladies. we need to be firm and discipline them and they need to learn that they need to stand for somethin or fall for anything. it's not all young people. we have a gat deal of young people that are trying to be positive and trying to full themselves up but they need some assistance. >> we work with the parents. a lot of parents don't know how to deal with the kids. without the father, they are afraid of the system. they are afraid o disciplining their kid. theyre going to lose -- they will be reported by child services. so we teach the mother how to deal with the kids because when you're talking about mentoring,
we are talking about coacaching. we got to go and coach the mother. call us up 24/7 if you got an issue with your kid. the other thing, the other point is the television. there are all the shows about violence. that's all they see is violence 24/7. and the tv used to go off. you remember you would hear the music. man stays on 24 hours. >> and sub liminal messages are very powerful in the lyrics. shoot em up, bang bang, things that shouldn't be happening. that's why we need a mentoring program. let's talk about the games for a minute. many of the computer games are being spent on for 7 or 8 hours and the games are teaching them
to kill. mentoring is key. positive mentoring is key. taking young men out on trips. taking them out on the city. mentoring male teams in the hood, we expose them to positive role models; black, white male and female. they are going to have to work hard. nobody owes them anything and nobodys going to give them anything. if they work hard they are going to go to harvard yale, maryland state. i think they need to be exposed to different kinds of things. let's remember, many of the young men are crying out in hurt because they are angry because their father is missing in action and they hate they have not had an opportunity to have a relationship with their father. the drug dealers become their
fathers and that causes them to act out. >> you are talking about mental illnesses too. >> again because of the environment they are . the environment have a lot to do, you know, you used to say you are a product of your environment. that's what we are seeing. the environment is corrupt. the environment is what t they see is what they do. as i mentioned when we get involved with a young person we don't just do it for one year every day. we got some guys thahat we mentioned from the gang intervention in nineteen ninety six that are still in contact with them. >> absolutely we started in 1996 with five young men a now we have served any 3,000. any saturday you come babyy by we have many yng men. one tt started in 1996 last
week he graduated from a university and we are very proud of him. >> and also why don't blacks value their lives and just want to kill each other? that's all they know. >> it's about exposure. >> if they don't have the exposure they will continue doing it. you got to show them the right way. >> that's anothther thing. we try to -- we have had our doors open so a person can come by drop by. what happened to these programs to come and then they don't fund them anymore and they are all gone. so what does the kid go to for that support? >> we need to fund for programs for young people that live in desolate areas. in baltimore near the area of
freddie gray, they enterdon't -- don't even have a supermarket. when you put the stadiums and not put the financial resources in that neighborhood. the young people see what's going on. they want to live and be big time. they're like i dropped out of school so how can i get what i want and do it out here illegally? >> more of us have got to get in the weeds rather than the tent house. >> we will come back with one minute of
no has to be no. young people need to know that you're real. you must have a good word. >> most of my mentors, we have guys that are ex offenders who have been lockeup and one of the thing that motivates them is that they don't want you to go through what you have gone through. that's why we were talking about getting paid. they get paid for the hours and they will even still do it after hours. >> what's the age group of the young people you are mentoring? >> i work with young men between the age of 8 and 18 wit young men in the baltimore area. most of them come from the city but others from surrounding counties. >> one young man we worked with from 14 to 28. this person even had the mentality of a young person even
past 21 years old. >> so these kids are damaged? >> yeah, the kids that are 28 are sometimes thinking the way of an a kid who is 14. >> we have to reach out to these young people when they are younger. >> we all have to. we cannot thank you -- your information is on the screen -- we cannot thank you enough for joining us. we are going to do more. we have to do more. thank you for joining us for us for this edition of thehe show. save the kids of the futur good day.
