Knives, Thugs, and Lowlifishness
A 16 year old attacked over 20 classmates with a knife; a creature went beserk after being told to lower her voice; gang members deliberately harassed Orthodox Jewish women. What do these episodes, and others, have in common? These animals have never been taught how to act in a civilized manner, have never been told the difference between right and wrong, and have never learned how to respond appropriately. Don't blame the guns, knives, TV, movies, and social media -- it's the fault of these out-of-control individuals and their parents. Behavior that was indecent, unacceptable, and unimaginable years ago is now perfectly fine; manners and decency are no longer seen as important. How much more will be tolerated before people finally have had enough?
