What is happening in this country? Now teenagers are robbing at a busy mall like Queen Center Mall. I am sure these are not Mexicans. And, its not the parents either. Its our law makers. We should be focusing more on our internal national issues than building a wall.


These kids that commit crimes like this should get punished like a adult
These kids will grow up to be future criminals. Everyone blames society, it’s the parents fault
