I'll admit-- when I read the thread title / headline, there was a moment where I thought "Aw... that's almost cute. Junior stickup man, with his
little BB gun, knocking off lemonade stands. Garage sales in that neighborhood better start installing surveillance cameras and hiring Asset
But really, this is pretty messed up and not all that funny.

Alright, WTH is wrong here. If I ever concieved a thought like this let alone performed such a act when I was 12 my Mother would have nailed me to a
cross. I can hear the plank of wood hitting my rear quarters.
Is that the only reason you wouldn't have done it? I hope that was just poorly-chosen wording. I think I always feared going against my own moral
code, more than I feared my parents' punishments. I wouldn't have done it, because I would have felt like a jerk, and a bully. A scumbag.
But your comment does remind me of some others I've read elsewhere. People stating that if it weren't for the law, or if it weren't for god /
religion, they'd probably be out killing and raping I always found those people baffling. Is that really all that's stopping you?
I know the whole "oh, this generation
of kids coming up these days are so much worse
than we were..." etc is a very old idea that
pretty much every generation has had. But sometimes I find myself wondering if there's some truth to it. If we really are, as a species, steadily
becoming more corrupt, greedy, selfish, uncaring..... It's a really frightening thought, if you're a decent person, and you really think about it
for a while.....
