Lately here in Detroit, there has been an increase of crimes involving very young perpetrators
in one of the incidents, the youngest thieves were 13 and 14 years old. They were in the company of an older teen.
In one incident, the robber was known in the neighborhood. Friends and family had been trying to convince him to stop breaking into houses.
In another incident, 3 people attempted to break into a home that was occupied. The resident fired warning shots. While fleeing one of the robbers dropped his gun and returned to get it. He attempted to enter the house again.
A thief attempted to steal the Wheels off of a car that just happened to belong to a police officer.
It seems crazy that the crimes are happening by younger and younger people. But the saddest thing of all is that a young person died in each of these incidents.
There is no glamor in crime. There is no profit in crime.
There is a very good chance that a young person in your life could die while committing a crime.
If there is a young person in your sphere of influence who can benefit from this information, please share it with them.
You may not be able to change the world, but you can change your corner of it.
