Barry, My Liege:
This is a true story which illustrates one theory of how sociopathic or criminal behavior is created.
An acquaintance teaches elementary school at an exclusive private school. Recently she had occasion to tell a child of maybe six or seven years that he could not do something he wanted to do.
He reacted very badly and proceeded to call his mother on his cell phone and complain to her that the teacher told him 'No'.
That day, the mother drove to see the principal to complain.
The principal told the teacher that if she did that one more time she would be fired.
In an under privileged community, the child would probably end in jail.
But, where will he end in a privileged community?
Your faithful servant,
