SEE THESE SMILING FACES ANYWHERE? LOOK LIKE ANYONE FAMILIAR?
No? They could be anyone... maybe the kid next door, even...
Maybe you know those kids? Think they might have spent some time locked up as juveniles? They say you can't tell just by looking at someone what they are capable of doing... and that it's unfair to make assumptions. Everyone knows you "don't judge a book by its cover", right?
But I don't know if that's really true: I think some people are just plain CRAZY and you can kinda tell by just looking at them. Call me prejudiced, but those kind of people I DON'T WANT roaming around the street, free to kill a couple or couple dozen innocent people. Like me.
I may look crazy, but I'm not stupid. And I know that because of the shoddy product GSS is turning out, there will be even more idiots doing STOOPID stuff in public because they WEREN'T provided with/allowed what they needed somewhere along the line. Like maybe discipline... or limits/boundaries... a work ethic... responsibilities... being told to pull their pants up and march right... SOMETHING. I just don't know WHAT. Or -- the problem may be that they were given TOO MUCH of what they DIDN'T NEED at a certain time and place in their lives, like oh, say, snow cones... pizza parties for causing damage to public property and assaulting staff... and kites and puppies and slip and slides and flat screen TV's to watch the Stupor Bowl on... you know? It really doesn't make much of a difference what a perosn looks like, but once they go beyond being crazy on their OWN and inflict it on other people, I want an accounting from SOMEONE or SOME INSTITUTION as to WHY THEY FAILED and society had to deal with the mess they caused. Still, being different doesn't mean you're a bad person. It's OK to be yourself, or at least it SHOULD BE.
But being a State Agency that isn't provide incarcerated youth from ending up with their picture in the paper due to overindulgence and inattention to their needs is a downright DISGRACE!
