Your surety in this is absurd. I will agree that it's sometimes the case that bad parents help make for bad children, but I've seen it the other way around as well. I've seen good kids who avoided being like their parents, ashamed of them.
I've also noticed that a lot of criminal types-- especially the violent ones-- are head cases who wouldn't have been anything other than a miserable example of a human being if he or she had been raised by Mary and Joseph.
"If one, then all" is one of the worst of illogical responses out there, and is one of the gravest sources of self-righteous hatred and bigotry out there.
Meanwhile, I doubt that you have any particular expertise in the etiology of crime to begin with, or have any genuine experience in the criminal justice system or any other valid basis from which to draw such an inane conclusion.
All you do is parrot your contention endlessly, without offering support other than this is your opinion-- and you seem to feel that the rest of us should presume it's operative since it's coming from you.
Alright then, if someone who raises a crappy kid isn't to blame, who is? Where does the crappiness come from if not from the people who created and raised it?
