I always smiled, shook my head, and considered humerous those preparing for SHTF and talking about Zombies, until witnessing the disturbing trend here. It indicates not only a lack of respect for each other that my generation was taught, but a larger lack of respect for an orderly and lawful society, without which we revert to a stone age existence.
The sad part is these people will have children and the offspring will be worse than their parents. These are the first examples of societal disintegration, of which there will be more to come.
My response? I placed an order for another 1000 rounds today.

I would say that this is more like the second or third generation. Think about the parents of these kids. Betting they had similar issues as kids themselves.

Not really...Here in Missouri, a little while back, this happened and was video-ed and was shown on local tv. Fortunately, a mother was watching tv that same afternoon and recognized one of the gang as her son. She pulled her son by the ear to the police station and asked to watch the footage again and recognized a few more, telling the police who they were, where they live, etc. THEN asked her son to name the rest she couldn't recognized. And this is a black family...so sometimes it is also the kid's environment. I applaud a parent who can do that. She doesn't have to prove anything, but she did put her own son in the right direction...baby steps...

Kill them for some goodies I don't think so.
If he had a security guard allowing three kids in at a time they would have went somewhere else and its a tax write off plus I bet every kid frequents that store they either live or go to school near by. video will make it easy to find them
I like the idea where you can hit the button and the doors lock. Bullet-proof glass and a bandit barrier protects the clerk while containing the animals.

If your having children while you yourself are just a teenager, I think we're into generation 4 or 5.
If you call your grandmother "mommy" and your mother "Pam," you're goin' to jail someday. :biggrin:

Oh really? I was raised by my grandmother, I have ethics and morales and no criminal record. I go to work everyday, pay my taxes and I am raising my 5 and 4 year old daughters by myself.

Want some ketchup with that foot?

It was a joke from Chris Rock about growing up in the hood.

Oh Look! A flash Mob of Urbans! How quaint. Such wonderful representatives of their neighborhood and their race.

Lock the doors and tear gass 'em! Several times, All of 'em. Wpould love to see their faces when they come around the corner and the owner is standing in front of the door wearing a cat 5 mask holding a 10lb canister of pepper spray. First one to open they yaps, gets the first shot. Or try wasp spray.

Sooner or later the looney left will be affected by this too!

Hello 911? I've been attacked by a flash mob of Jehova Witnesses. They held me down and spread the word of love between neighbors.

The idea of earning and paying for what you get is a long extinct concept in this country. Now the prevailing lessons to our youth are no constraints, morality, civility respect, and no conscience are necessary - it's do what makes you happy.

That would have been a different context, more to do with the area one was raised than who raised you. Middle class suburbs for me. Consider it a lesson in generalizations, or the mistake of making them, if you will.

Have a good one.

A Conoco I used to work at years back had that set up. I worked in a bullet proof glass cage and had a button on the back wall to lock the doors. Problem... The rest of the glass in the store was normal glass.

don't the police notice a gang of 20 to 30 kids and suspect trouble! Where I grew up a group that large would have been given a "police escort" to help them stay on the right side of the law. What a bunch of good for nothing scumbags, this time some candy and pop, down the road the register cash, or a car, or a home invasion. Most of them are recognisable. But that will lead to NOTHING as usual, homey's got your back brother. They could be the ones who didn't get their food stamps on time!

When one refers to the other as, "Baby Momma" or "Baby Daddy" and Obamacare didn't show up this month this is what you get.

If this kind of behavior goes unpunished and the fact that it is all over the television will send a message to all of the low life, welfare sucking people out there that this is a win win for them if they need to go get their malt liquor and chips.

I agree the news gets around quickly, other dead heads follow it up.

This is a shame that our society is this bad. No wonder there are more and more people carring guns these days. The unfortunate thing is that these kids under better circumstances would be good kids. This was started by a few very uneducated souls and the rest just went a long with it. A true mob mentality This is what are government has been teaching us for the last 60 years a complete lack of education and just reward someone for non production. This happens every where accross our planet not just at our corner store but in the board rooms, police departments and goverments. They are just doing what they see are government doing everyday. take from the hard workers and give to the lazy.. what do you think is going to happen when the government runs out of credit... and no more money for nothing..

About 30 yrs ago, I worked the 3rd shift at the most robbed "C" store in Memphis. One night we had the football team from an all black college in MS come in after a game with Memphis State. They all (even the coaches), swarmed the store stealing everything they could grab. A couple of them held the door open so it could not be remotely locked; while others cleared out the beer cooler, candy & chip isles.


I really couldn't do anything but activate the silent alarm and watch while I was locked up in my cubicle behind the counter. Of course, MPD arrived to late and told me they couldn't follow them into MS. Basically, we filed a report and placed a claim with our insurance company.

But, lucky for "THEM" noboby chose to try & rob the register. I had a 30/30 cocked & ready to put a hole through the counter if any of them had pulled a weapon & tried to rob the register.

Absolutely correct about the middle-class suburban effect.

Statistically speaking, you're the exception to the trend. Studies find that kids raised by grandparents are more likely to have social, emotional, educational and criminal issues. This was found to be due to the older generation having a harder time overcoming the obstacles of raising a child. It's harder for them.

More than 4.5 million minors are living with a grandparent according to the latest statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau. Out of this total, about 2.4 million children are being raised primarily by grandparents and the numbers keep rising. In Illinois, more than 200,000 children live with a grandparent as their primary caregiver, according to the Illinois Department of Aging.

The challenges are evident in studies such as one conducted by Northern Illinois University in DeKalb and published in the journal, Applied Developmental Science. The study reported a gap in reading achievement for children from the ages of two to about 5.5 years old when a custodial grandmother in a low-income neighborhood was raising them. Such neighborhoods in cities that include Chicago, Boston and San Antonio, had large minority populations. The outcome was better in suburban or well-off families. The study based its findings on analysis of community statistics.

When parents falter, children naturally fall into the laps of their grandparents. Caring for a grandchild may be temporary, for example when a parent is ill or in turmoil. It can also be permanent, as in the case of death, serious substance abuse, or incarceration. Following are some of the common circumstances that place children in jeopardy, forcing them to seek the sanctuary of their grandparents (Abandonment of the child by the parent. Parental illness (mental and physical). Teenage pregnancy. Substance abuse. Unemployment. Homelessness. Incarceration. Death of a parent. Divorce. Family violence. Child abuse and neglect. Poverty).

This is a subject we know much about... from the grandparent perspective. We have raised a grand-nephew after his mother and father fell to drug addiction. His experiences as a small child gave way to increased emotional and behavioral issues. He misses his parents and has difficulty coming to terms with his situation. This has caused him to "act out" in school and social settings. He gets help from a child psychologist and has made good progress but he has much to overcome. We hope our caring and exposure to a nurturing environment can eventually get him through his troubles, but he is still only nine-years-old. He has experienced turmoil during the development period where his "gut-value-programming" (the base of morality, right and wrong, ethics, etc.) was most important.

I'm glad to hear your grandparents did so well. It was probably very hard on them but their love for you kept them. God bless them for their love and caring. Your post gives me hope for my nephew as he is very hard to handle. Thanks much for the encouragement.
