Oh yes, I need to include a few illustrative data pieces to make the story even clearer:
1. Age of the murder victim ---- 16 years of age!
2. Retail cost of highly-desired newly-released Nike Air Jordan athletic shoes ----- $185 per pair.
3. Age of alleged murderers (who have been apprehended) ---- 18 years of age.
When teenaged bulling becomes a deadly crime against person as a property crime.
'Tis a deteriorating criminal society out there, enhanced and bolstered by claims of entitlement. All IMHO.
