Many/most of you seem to be proposing that these are normal kids up to no good. If so, their motivations should make sense to us, since presumably all
of us were kids at one time, and/or have kids, or have interacted with or worked with today's kids. So...
1) Kids playing pranks to scare people. The kids I know, when they're going to play a scary prank, they try to act scary - not normal. And even when
pranking, they don't become excessively polite or gain vocabulary/grammar skills that they don't normally have. If the BEKs are normal kids playing
pranks, what behavior would we expect? Acting scary, being pushy, threatening, or acting deliberately "strange" in scary ways. Just think about it..
are the reported typical behaviors of BEKs really what you would expect from kids playing pranks or even acting on dares? And if the dare is
to get an adult to let you in the house late at night, see #2.
2) They want to come inside to look for valuables or rob the place. And when they're asking for a ride in a car, maybe they're planning a
carjacking. How, then, do the black contacts and creepy behavior make any sense? If you really want someone to let you in their house or car, you want
to appear harmless and trustworthy. A 4-year-old could get that one right, let alone a teenager. Again, typical BEK behaviors are not what we would
expect from kids actually trying to be let in in order to "case the joint" or for any other reason.
3) They intend immediate violence and/or harm. If so, why be polite and keep ASKING to be let in? Why not just push their way in before the "target"
can shut the door? It's late at night, no one is around, and in Oz's case the streetlights and porch light are out. No one can see them, so why keep
trying to get him to allow them in instead of starting the mayhem right then and there? Again, it doesn't make sense.
4) Kids on drugs. Are there 12 year olds on drugs? Sure, probably. But .. I don't know about you, but I can spot drugged behavior a mile away. Where
I work now, many of our customers are on SSI or disability, and they take various recreational drugs. We can spot 'em in seconds, either they're
"tweaking" or they have that dazed, dopey feel about them. So, why, then, has not one person reported "drugged" behavior in BEKs? They aren't
tweaky or fidgety, they aren't dazed or having slurred speech. In fact they exhibit unusually clear and correct speech, use unusually polite or
"adult" language, and don't exhibit any nervous or fidgety behaviors typical of kids or teenagers when dealing with a strange adult. That sound
like "drugged" behavior to you? It doesn't to me.
And, as I said before, BEKs as young as (appearing to be) about 8 years old have been reported. I don't know, so you tell me... do we really
have eight-year-olds out there taking drugs? Really?
It's easy to just pass these incidents off with generic, generalized statements about kids on drugs or kids playing pranks, or kids up to no good,
but if you take a little time to really consider the facts, none of those ordinary, dismissive explanations make any kind of logical sense if BEKs are
just "normal" human kids.
