Next point - a 13-year old with a $1,500 I-phone? My cynical self says that phone may have been previously stolen and subsequently fenced.
....but a kid with a 1500.00 phone is just crazyyyy
....strange how we always "classify" things into a certain "box" and everything that does not match into this box must be "criminal, weird or crazy".
I still remember when any strangers cut my hair as a young man on the way back from the 1970 Isle-of-Wight-festival and they called me "devil", I still hear people call me "hippie, hobo, lazy, faithless, lawless": and even asked to "hang me on the next tree" - disgusting all this prejudice.
I see whole families now with 3 or 4 kids and each of them an i-pad with numerous games: That must be hell - isn't it? For me it is very much more alarming that our kids are given these toys to have a free caretaker and that our kids grow up with all this violence in TV and in the movies while their parents point onto any material "devils" they spotted out somewhere else and I worry about the missing of love for them (which certainly cannot be replaced by an i-phone!
