Teenager Vincent Parker, 16-years old, had his iPod taken away by his parents. Vincent was furious. He became unhinged and bludgeoned his parents with a long list of objects in the house. Except a gun. Killing over an iPod? Our society has become excuse ridden, irresponsible, and morals are lacking. Parents have failed to teach their kids certain values that were taught to previous generations, such as respecting your elders. Is this the result of progressive beliefs and/or policies? Kevin Jackson of The Black Sphere would answer yes to that question. Is this the result of a ‘me me me culture’? Is this the result of society breeding individuals so that immediate gratification is built into their psyches? Today this is the norm and not the exception. Violence is on the rise among youth to individuals in their twenties and I believe that this is society’s own making.
