What occured back in the day and waht occurs today are completely different, which is to say it shifted from growing up learning to respect other
people to the who gives a sh#t attitude. (sarcasm)Society has done a good job at raising peoples children, while at the same time parents have gone
from being involved to its someone elses issue, anda lot of people see school as nothing more than daycare with the expectation the teachers should be
the defacto parents.
Since the Supreme Court rulings about Minors and their rights, how a situation like this is handeled is up to juveinle authorities and the PA's
In my state, if I respond to a call where a person was shot and killed, and the suspect is 16 years old and he surrenders the moment I get there, I
cannot arrest him. I can detain pending a juveinile officer's response, but absent the juvenile officer, we dont have authority (in my state anyways)
to take action on our own.
Our society today is to touchy feely, where we reward bad behavior and punish those who behave.
