I'm a fan of Glenn Beck. You can see him on TV and hear him on radio and even read his books. He's got common sense going on. Please check out the link below to see what atrocity has been passed by our elected officials.

hartford police release video of hit and run
This is the video in it's entirety. It's pretty disturbing, but unfortunately, not unbelievable in this day and age.
Hartford police release video of hit-and-run - by News Channel 8's Bob Wilson
This is a story that I saw here in Dallas, but the video is the local channel in Hartford, CN (I think.) The police chief's comments are right on the nose.

What to do, what to do?
There used to be a time when I could sit down and draw a picture, write a poem, or tell a story right off the top of my head and now I can't tell you what has irked me today or what really floats my boat. Maybe, in the days ahead I'll reveal a revelation (was that a redundant way of putting it? I don't know but I bet my teacher from 25 years ago would.) Who knows, I might even get some paragraphs in there. And I invite you to give me a topic or tell me how your day was spent. I'm always open for suggestions.
I may just turn this into a music post, because I love me some music. For starters, the video below is a great song (or I might just like the girls in it.) The band is the Fratellis and the song is "Chelsea Dagger." Check them out and let me know what you think.

Two Teens Unremorseful After Stealing From Girl Scout
Basically, two teens stole money from a girl scout while she sold cookies in front of the supermarket. They were caught later and on camera showed no remorse. They "needed the money," so they took it.
So, this is my question. How do these two slip by adults? This kind of behavior has to slip out into their daily lives. I just can't bring myself to believe that it's a spur of the moment thing and that they haven't exhibited this style of behavior before. Since there has to be warning signs of some type, how did the parents react? Are they as apalled as the rest of us? Is there a rest of us? Or am I the only one that wants to lock these two away because I see no hope for them?
Tell me your opinion and if you disagree with (or agree,) please offer up some solutions.
