In my opinion, and as others have stated, I feel this rise in violence from our younger generation is because of a lack of responsibility and respect.
This is a messed up generation. They are the ones who made people like Snooki and Kim Kardasian stars. It's an entire generation of kids, now young
adults, who were raised to be all about "ME." Self-entitled, spoiled brats who lack the emotional understanding of how to handle the real world that
can be pretty damn cruel.
They didn't work hard to earn what they had, it was handed to them.
They didn't earn awards or grades, they were handed to them because of PC bull-crap & schools who want to keep their funding.
They didn't have consequences for their actions because someone else was always to blame and someone else would fix it for them.
The adults in their lives depended on drugs to keep them complacent.
Both parents work, or their single parent works crazy hours leaving daycare to raise them or children to raise themselves.
They lack a basic set of morals and ethics.
They lack positive roles models in their lives, not because there are none to be found, but because they don't want to be look up to someone they
Most importantly, they lack respect for their own body, so it makes sense that the lives of others would be worth little to them.
No, not all of our young adults are like this, but the good ones are getting harder to find. A fact which fills me with sadness.
