I used to think it has to do with hiring minimum-wage employees, but I think the problem is more deeply rooted than that. Possibly, it may be related to the breakdown of the family unit. Society is producing young individuals to go out into the workforce, young individuals who don't know, don't want to know, and don't ever intend to find out how to go about their job. They turn up in the morning, punch the time clock, take up space, and then go home at 5 PM. It is getting so that one is afraid to let property out of one's sight for 1 minute. Even property that is bolted down to the ground, because what they cannot carry away, they can still vandalize.

They knew no judge would have any sympathy for an obvious screw-up on their part and might fine them even more. The place burned down the very day my sis went to pick up her car; fortunatly it was parked outside. Who says justice isn't metered out to the evil-ones.
