The headline reads “Boys, 11 and 14, Charged With Sexual Assault on Woman, 60.” That is pretty scary! Here is another one. “Six Las Vegas Teens Shot at Bus Stop After Schoolyard Fight Over Girl.” How about “Cicero-North Syracuse Student Charged in Exchange of Nude Photos” or “15-Year-Old Boy Pleads Guilty to a Lesser Charge in High School Bomb Plot.” Then there is always these: “Three Female Teens Charged After Video of Them Beating 13-Year-Old Girl Surfaces” and “Illinois High School Student Expelled After Planning Fight on MySpace.”
I guess you could blame guns … but only one of these crimes involves a gun!
Why is it that recently the violent-crime rate seems to rise and fall in direct proportion to the number to teens in the population? Why has the number of murder arrests of teens suddenly jumped 92% since 1985 … during a period when the teen population has remained steady or even declined. The perception that criminals are getting younger is backed up by statistics. In 1982, 390 teens, ages 13 to 15, were arrested for murder. A decade later, this total jumped to 740.
Could it be that we are reaping what we have sown by blindly following the secular-progressive’s model for an “improved” society; a society in which we teach 8th graders to put condoms on bananas, use prime-time soft-core porn TV shows and video games to raise our children, and then tell parents that if they attempt to discipline their children we will put them in jail?
Many of today’s kids simply have no moral compass! Why? Because our schools and the National Education Association (NEA), controlled by the secular-progressives in our society, have waged a campaign of intolerance of anything remotely resembling a Christian idea (see War on Christmas or God Bless America), told us that right and wrong are relative (one man’s rapist is another man’s role model … so you can’t make a judgement), and that being an American is a bad thing (see no “anti-American” textbooks allowed in Texas).
Oh yeah, the National Endowments for the Arts (NEA) also tells us that a picture of the Virgin Mary decorated with elephant feces and pictures of women’s vaginas is art! But that’s another story … or is it?
