In The News

Every major news outlet has had a story about teenaged girls videotaping a recent brutal beating of another female teenager. In all of the reports, the faces of those responsible have been blocked/blurred (except for the one 18-year-old), as they should be if they are underage. However, their parents are most assuredly of age, and I think we should be allowed to see just whose kids are capable of such monstrous violence. And aren't they RESPONSIBLE for the actions of their children?? I think if more parents would be held accountable, we'd see much less of this kind of thing.

(Yeah, I know that ID-ing the parents would be tantamount to ID-ing the kids.)

First of all, I agree. We need to stop protecting the guilty under the guise that "they're just kids".


Anyways, thank you so much for the comment the other day. You always know just what to say to help put things in perspective...
