I am so sorry that the younger generations have no concern whatsoever for
what you sacrificed.
Its happening all over, not just the US. IMO it comes down to a lack of personal responsibility at the individual's level - You got badly treated as a kid? Never mind! we understand
if that causes you to decide as an adult to break laws and become a criminal arsehole...its society's fault for not giving you a 'fair go'!
So of course, society pays. Not the perp responsible. Give em that slap on the wrist and tell them "Not to do it again, OK?!"
There. All sorted.
