Unfortunately, the behavior of an individual as a minor often gives society a glimpse of what that person may someday grow to become. In the case of many young adults who make poor choices, we often excuse the behavior as that of impulsive youth. Strikingly however, a large number of youth who begin criminal behaviors at the ages of 14, 15, and 16, develop into full-fledged criminals with which our society must contend. There are many victims ahead who may accidently cross paths with these teens who grow to become hardened criminals. It is also frustrating that the crimes these people engage in before they turn 18 years of age, are "excused" and "forgotten" by our justice system. At age 18, these individuals have a clean slate and can start anew terrorizing our world. I have no mercy for individuals "dabling" in drugs, theft, rape and kidnapping just because they are teens.

This youth is not unlike many teens his age. They seem to be unable to understand that discipline or having adults help correct their shortcomings and mature into a reasonable adults isn't that faraway. They run because they know what they did or going to do is wrong, unacceptable, unethical or immoral, but they still want to because they are impulsed by emotions, hormones rather then logic to convey what they're thinking. To achieve their goal of independence, to be uninhabited, free! They venture out on their own. After that taste of freedom, reality hits them that they are not accomplished enough to make their own way in society. They still need help in being civilized. They steal, deceive, ask strangers to help them. Criminals use them in all ways and they find themselves tricked or fooled. Hopefully, this brings them back home. Home where there's a clean bed to sleep, good food, warmth physically, emotionally and intelligently. How much damage have they caused for themselves and for loved ones? Who's fault is it? Chalk it up and pray for comfort and their safety.
