Lack of parental upbringing threatening the innocent here throughoutthe country. I used to blame the high poverty level for these kinds of crimes committed by teenagers. Not anymore when facts point to children raising up them selves not going to school or participating in school activities. It all starts at home the way a child is brought up. Being poor is no excuse for robbing, stealing, thievery, assaulting anyone especially the vulnerable. We all have to look out for one another because these sorts of crime are fast becoming rampant. Not one iota of respect or moral values exist in these punks. They need to learn their lessons & not probation because of their age. They are committing adult crimes without a conscience, making them unfit for society. I say put them in prison with adults & they will have regret to the nth degree. If their parents can't take care of them then the states will have to. It's looking like we have a social disease running in this country of young thugs called teenagers numbering in the 10's of thousands.
