2. Cowards is the word.

We all have (or have had) mothers. It takes a depraved, brutish mind to attack a defenseless elderly woman. I don't doubt that it took a lot for her to make it to the grocery, go through with the shopping, and then haul it back home, judging from such a labored gait and a noticeable limp -- only to be regarded as easy prey because of her vulnerabilities. It could have happened to an elderly man, as well.

Here's the YouTube surveillance clip:

8. These days? Not so much.

 

There is a phenomenom right now called "gooning" where thugs jump people for no reason other than to terrorize them. They don't steal anything. So I would wager that anger is a huge factor in the aberrant behavior we are witnessing, as well.

Another thing I want to remind you: education is FREE in this country. Libraries are FREE, too! Children of color from low-income families start out at a disadvantage but it's not just about throwing money at the problem. If you are not raised by educated people, the quality of your discourse with them is likely to be inferior. Children learn by having extensive conversations with adults BEFORE they enter preschool. They develop language skills and background knowledge which can be applied to early literacy. This is all free.

9. This article did not say if the persons had a job and an education or not. Perhaps this

information is available elsewhere but I don't have time to research it right now.

But be that as it may the lack of a job and a good education is absolutely no excuse for doing something like this. The permissive liberal attitude that tries to excuse away criminal behavior just makes me sick.
