You still trick or treat? On your own, or do you take your kids out?

by the way, where are you guys getting trick or treaters from? we used to buy candy but well, ended up eating all but a few pieces ourselves, finally just decided not to waste our money and just turned the lights off and hid ourselves away. the church down the street where I live now has a big thing for the kids and I think that's where most of them go here. It's gotten too dangerous for the little kids, that's why the tradition is dying out. either that or they are all too busy out spooning...

Marauding parents in Easter Egg hunt rampage: Out-of-control adults push children to the ground, steal their buckets and leave one four-year-old 'bloody' at chaotic free event
Children were trampled as 1,000 people stormed the PEZ center field
9,000 eggs were laid out on three different age-bracketed sections
But when the egg hunt started, 'parents stormed the field stealing eggs'
One four-year-old was left 'bloody', many toddlers 'pushed into the mud'
An Easter egg hunt descended into chaos on Saturday after parents in Orange, Connecticut, stormed the field.
Children as young as four were trampled by adults in a rampage to steal buckets and grab as many of the 9,000 hidden eggs as possible from the third annual free event at the PEZ headquarters.
One four-year-old son was left 'bloody' on the sports field and a two-year-old girl was shoved into the mud, witnesses claimed.
A horrified parent described the scene as 'an angry mob of chaos' with 'not one toddler hunting for eggs' among the crowds of adults.
I have always thought Easter egg hunts were for children only.
What is surprising to me is, these parents have no respect for children and their behavior of out of control GREED.
I am guessing the dumbing down process of the last three generation of adults in America have "succeeded", and this is one of the results that these adults have learned in government controlled education.
So ATSer's what is your opinions to why these parents behave this way?
