Who's to blame?

Take a look at these two kids on the right, Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei:



They look like nice people, don't they? But they turn out to be sick, soulless creeps. How did they turn out this way? Are they exceptional among today's youth? Food for thought...

What causes people to behave this way? Is it a sign of the times? The natural fallout from today's obsession over social networking, social sharing, reality television, mobile devices?

Does the fault lie with these kids, or with today's society in general?

And what should be done with these kids? I say, lock 'em up and throw away the keys. Send a clear message to all young people: The use of the Internet must be balanced with social decorum and human decency. Beyond that, we must all respect privacy and human dignity...

Concepts that are apparently alien to today's youth.
