Is Teen Violence The New Normal? KTSCW [VIDEO] [POLL]
A few days ago I posted a video about Tony farmer, a top basketball recruit from Ohio, who was recently sentenced to three years behind bars for assaulting his ex-girlfriend. The cameras were rolling when the judge handed down his sentence on each of the counts for which Tony plead guilty to; robbery, kidnapping, felonious assault, and intimidating a victim.
As I watched this 18-year old stand there in disbelief questioning his lawyer after each count was delivered and then collapsing to the floor, I could not help but wonder why was he so surprised with the ruling? After all he was the one who did these horrible things to his ex-girlfriend Andrea Lane.
Our young men and women are growing up in this new age of social media, an economy slipping by the minute, an over sexed society, and the list goes on and on. Have things changed so drastically today from what they were back in the day? Are we living in a time where there is no love for one another, no regard or value for human life; oh and did I forget to mention, babies having babies.
