My teenage years were full of all sorts of crime for which I never got caught. Shoplifting cigarettes on the low end, arson on the high. I abetted stealing a gun. Started playing around with making explosive devices, and of course testing them. And plenty of drug use (acid, amphetamines, and of course pot). Oddly, the drugs chilled me out, and by the time I hit my 20’s I have been a reasonably law abiding citizen. I hate to think of the consequences of my actions would be if:
A) It was a different time, no war on terror, pre-Colombine, etc.
B) I wasn’t a middle class white kid.
