If folks around town are scratching their heads and wondering IF THIS TYPE OF MONSTEROUS ATROCITY CAN POSSIBLY HAPPEN TO THEM... ...may I most humbly suggest that you read: "Don't Let Your Kids Kill You: A Guide for Parents of Drug and Alcohol Addicted Children" by Charles Rubin. And look at this video when you have time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vCu44C3Fkc For those of you who think your kids are NOT capable of this madness - well - you may THINK that's the case, but rest assured that your kids could already be associating with these monsters and UNBEKNOWNST TO YOU... these monsters may have already been in your house, opening your fridge and snacking on Oreo Cookies while you are at work. And folks?? I speak from experience. Personally, I am moving away from Farmington Hills to a secured residential property with gates and locks and security guards and surveillance cameras because seeing the video arraignment of these priveleged "children" of Oakland County has seriously frightened me and my friends - and we are too old to take any more chances - nor invest anymore time with Generation Zero. Thank you. And please... have a nice day.
