They don’t know what they want. They show up unprepared. They’re lacking in enterprise and courage.
But is this true? Consider some evidence to the contrary:
Largo, Florida – Police are looking for a little girl who pulled a knife on a Wal-Mart clerk as she tried to steal two boxes of Lego toy blocks.
It happened [at] the Missouri Avenue [store] around 9:00 pm Tuesday night. Police say the 7 to 8-year-old girl hid the toys under her coat and tried to walk out the door.
A store employee was watching and approached the child, asking her to turn over the Lego blocks. Police say the little girl then opened her jacket and displayed a combo carving knife with a forked point and a 10″ blade, saying she was armed for protection.
The employee talked the girl into putting down the knife and the toys.
The article’s final sentence is priceless:
The girl rode away on her bicycle.
Was that with or without training wheels?
