I've been following this thread and agree with what everyone here is saying.
The youth today, really needs to be shipped off to an island, bootcamp island and given a proper teaching on respect, dress atire and effin manners. The other day this stupid kid sitting in the backseat of his mother's car gave me the middle finger after his mom booted out of a parking lot in front of me and I honked my horn. $500 this kid doesn't even know the rules of the road.
Parents these days are way too lenient on their kids. I'm not sure if I would go as far as saying media makes the kids do what they do. It does play a part but on the other hand they SHOULD know the difference from right and wrong.
