What a nice job the perps parents did raising their children!
I graduated Central in 74 and you know why stuff like that did not happen then? And no not because Central was all white in 74,it was because if our parents found out we'd be dead. There was always a seroius repercussion to consider for even the slightest infraction, it kept us in line.
No consequences = chaos and you cannot deny it.

No Bricks we were not soft, we were simply of higher moral fiber and better behaved even with the Hippie movement, political unrest and influx of drugs.
If someone had a beef back in 1974 it was settled with fists in a fair fight.
People who use guns are soft!
For some reason bullying was not tollerated the way it is today and if one of us ever robbed someone with a weapon it would be condemned.
Hence, consequences to be paid.
There is something seriously wrong with this generation and I personally blame the parents.

well your entitled to your opinion but its personal responsibilty i dont think the parents should be blamed for their kids actions. and yu didnt mention my other point during the 80s it was alot worse everyone was stealing cars shooting etc coke everywhere. and the 70s i guess your right everone was so high on shrooms because they were to scared of their responsobilties. and that was the vietnam war. at the end of the day i think our time was alot more productive then the 70s.

Bricks, you are 100% spot on with your personal responsibility theory. I have seen great kids come out of the most dysfunctional homes and little bastards come from the most loving of families. So you are correct, it is all up to the individual yet parents do play a big role.
The reason we wern't sticking up our peers with guns and knives back in the 70's was not because we were all on "shrooms" it was because it would be considered such a "punk ass" thing to do in addition to the legal and parental repercussions it would have been social suicide.
For some reason you kids think this is OK or even sadder, cool?

sometimes it playes a little role because some parents teach their kids to do bad things. or on the other side the crazier stuff you do the more feared yu are so kids take risks to show everyone else how tough they are so they can make money hustle etc. and your right it can be considered cool. has it ever been cool to hang out in the library and get strait az.

When and if you ever grow up you will realize that it would be considered cool to have applied yourself and to have gotten streight A's.

Hey typical I'm with you but don't expect mr Bricks to agree with anything. My son is in jail right now and he says the missing link is respect. Fact is these kids have this entitlement thing going on and they are going to crash and burn no matter what we say. So frustrating. My son says in his day you had respect for the older guys no matter what, these kids will swing on you no matter what your age or gender, for God's sake Grandmothers are not exempt. Unfortunately when they have wasted the best years of their lifes they will then realize we were right and it will be too late. They have no clue. Hard work is just not something they know. I see it I want it I take it. It's gonna get worse before it gets better I'm sure but they better have a gun and will have to pry my money from my dead hands.

Don't worry, I know better than to pay attention to Bricks.
How sad and true everything you have said is.
Back in the day at least there was a code of honor among theives, who ever thought that thought would be comforting?
