Teens Today

Alright parents, take note! I came across this article on the news the other day.

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.
