      Yes, what is up with this generation of robbers and thieves. When i was a kid their was a long internship before graduating to armed robbery in which the basics of gun safety were learned at the hands of a mentor. Theives used to start with simple muggings at knife point and then moved gradually to retail crime before graduating to their first liquor store. You see what happens when you don’t learn the fundementals of your craft people?
