Troubled Generation: The Perceived Prevalence Of Youth Crime And Corruption

Over the past few months, headlines describing crimes perpetrated by children and teenagers have been splashed atop stories all over the Internet.

In mid-July, the Chicago Tribune reported about several teenagers who fatally assaulted a 62-year-old man on camera. Malik Jones, 16, Nicholas Ayala, 17, and Anthony Malcolm, 18, then posted the cell phone video of their crime to Facebook.

Earlier that month, a 12-year-old boy from Fort Washington, Md., was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in a juvenile court for beating a 2-year-old foster child to death. The infant, Aniyah Batchelor, was reportedly living with the boy’s family at the time of the murder, according to The Washington Post.

In fact, accounts of child-perpetrated depravity seem to be as numerous as they are shocking – from the 10-year-old girl in Maine charged with murdering 3-month-old Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway, to the 12-year-old boy accused of raping a 5-year-old girl in an Ohio McDonald’s Playland. more

Thoughts: Also read the post just below this one. The parental and educational "systems" of modern civilization, created to produce docility and malleable workers for a corporatocracy, has now gone so far that it has even broken itself. Individuals are now no longer even capable of engaging in simple labour, let alone moral thought... let alone civil disobedience aimed at dismantling the "machine" instead of merely aggravating its components.
