Mother: "My poor, sweet little angel would never hurt anyone."
Police Officer: "Ma'am, are you speaking of the sorry doped up SOB who was so high that he shot himself after attempting an armed home invasion?"
Mother: "My boy is not capable of such a thing."
Police Officer: "Well, you're partially right about that. He IS NO LONGER capable of doing that because he already did it."
I trust the kids these days to do whatever stupid thing pops in their heads that no one there who is smarter than they are can stop them from doing. Unfortunately, that tends to be the police or armed citizens versus their parents, who never seem to have any idea how f'ed up their children really are.
Oh well, it's probably better that their genes were removed from the pool.
I don't discount Darwin's idea of evolution, just the notion that we're more evolved than any other species.
