Reminds me of John Conway's confession to the murder of nine-year-old Nicholas Martin, 1891.

Kind of got me thinking about the Johnny Cash lyric 'I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die' There was a documentary where he was asked about writing this, and his reply was something along the lines that it was the worst thing he could think of as a reason to kill.

Silverstealth:

Thanks for that. The kids today seem to be affected by depression in times of greater material wealth than in the good old days when Mom stayed home and raised the children and they played with rocks and used their imagination. Many kids today are just about as imaginative as a box of hammers.

Nina and I were talking about that on the way home from work today. Kids are being given the message right outta the gate that their parents are only part of the "crew" that raise them and there is no "most important" person in their lives...since most spend more time with paid child care workers than their mother or father...who change from year to year in some cases. I notice the girl killer's dad was not mentioned. In the US, more women now are in the work force than men.

Raven:

Stealth's post is just one of many cases in the LVP which seem lifted off today's headline stories. One difference is the explanation provided in these cases....Today we hear about ADD kids, bipolar kids, all these new mental conditions which they treat with dope that amounts to legal meth....the kids back in the LVP had every reason to be as depressed, bummed out, and moody....yet we seem to have more Jesse Pomeroys by proportion than they did. This shit goes on every day anymore.

I think modern lifestyle has a lot to account for, some people grow up without valuing anything, as when money or credit is widely available, the anticipation isn't there now like it would be if you had to save and wait instead of getting the rush of the "quick fix" of modern commercialism. Unfortunately, some people will do anything for instant gratification across the spectrum and this includes devaluing or ignoring human life and the effect crime has on the victim.

How, they just put them into industrial schools for defectives where they taught them to launder or to make brushes. They could then be useful and profit making for the rest of their eternal lives in various Mental deficiency colonies.

True, Silver...so very true and sad. Thanks for the followup.

Raven....many kids are simply unfit for anything other than stuffing their faces because of their parents...or lack of parenting. 75 percent of Yank kids are unfit for military service I've heard..not just physically, but psychologically.

They also have this awful mindset of "entitlement" that some of us had growing up in the late 1950's and 1960's...but nowhere near the extent that I've percieved over the last decade or two.

I know, How. Kids learn values and morals by pro-social and familial modelling. When these are lacking kids don't have a chance in life. The 60's revolution passed my parents by and I was brought up in a 2 parent family with a stay at home mother. We were taught manners and morals (on the downside, I also learned guilt of almost biblical proportions if I ever did anything wrong We had everything we needed for a healthy life, but by no means did we get everything we wanted.
I think Governments ought to give incentives to stay at home mums / dads in two parent families. In the UK, loads of benefits are available to single parent families and lot's of resources are available to encourage mums to get back into work as soon as is humanly possible. We have a huge job deficit here and with one parent in a family unit working, we could free up jobs then children could be looked after and nurtured by a parent rather than in a nursery / child-minder environment (I'm sure professionals in these fields do a marvellous job for the most part, but a there is no substitute for a parents love)
I also think the army should run boot camps for teenagers who constantly offend, there would be fewer repeat offenders and career criminals!

Raven:

Even though my own upbringing wasn't as possibly/probably well-knit as yours appears to have been, I still had an authority figure...which most of us had here as well. Anyone who gets everything they want has bad role models in the first place. Obviously, "need" and "want" are 2 different things.


Maybe its something in all those food additives, Raven....I don't know dear....but modern kids are different than we were. Sometimes a lot different.
