If we are friends on Facebook, or if you follow me on Twitter, then you might have seen my rants about Five’s stolen scooter. It was stolen on his first day of school, DURING the school day.
It was sort of surprising. A lot of people around here don’t lock their doors. The kids at school don’t lock up their bikes or scooters. But let’s be honest. Thefts happen.
Five’s scooter was probably stolen by an older kid at school. And it was returned. That’s good, right? But it was defaced and damaged. The perp had tried to remove all distinguishing characteristics from the scooter. And there was no apology.
Too many people in this village said returning the scooter was enough. All’s well that ends well.
Give me a frickin’ break. I’m just not satisfied with that.
The school claims there isn’t a problem with thefts at the school. But they admitted an iPod was just stolen from a teacher at school.
Uh, you guys? The emperor has no clothes.
A lot of people say they don’t know why society is breaking down. Let me tell you why. Parents don’t teach their children right from wrong. Parents don’t make their children be accountable for their actions. Parents aren’t willing to get involved in the schools. And we don’t have our best and brightest teaching. Teachers are spread too thin. And some people (not me) believe if teachers can’t cane students, there's no way to enforce the rules.
I want a better world.
