    Hopefully Junior will reflect on how badly this could turned out, and make big changes in his life. Some many of these characters don’t learn from experience, so I am not holding my breath.

    Judging by the “Headline”…
    I’m guessing that Miss Wolf will now be advocating that Homeowners/Those in Peril / or Anyone involved with a break-in or intruder will now need to determine the age of the offender before taking any kind of action or response?

    Intent or objective will no longer determine the guilt of the perpetrator.

      Absolutely. The minute he engaged in this crime, he became an adult. I wonder how many other “deeds” he has done without being caught.
