I am writing to you about this years Halloween and the stealing of personal property that took place. Many residents in our neighborhood were able to eye witness malicious behaviors from children who seem to lack respect and humility.
Full bowls of candy were dumped into bags. Bowls and wash buckets were stolen from residents. Several kids dressed in purple scream outfits came back an hour later, just to steal more items and leave the little ones with nothing.
Now some may just say, “it’s just kids”. But would that person say the same if these same items were stolen from them or even a store? The last I checked, stealing can get you sometimes 6 months in jail.
I would hope we try to instill our children with the honor system and hope they never take personal property. These children have to understand in this day and age we have cameras and ring. All of what happened on Halloween has been taped. Many parents will be filing a report while others will never be putting out candy again. Some have already contacted the police. So if you have any insight, you may want to say something.
I will be writing a letter to the Northshore School System with hopes that there will be accountability and possibly children doing the right thing.
These individuals have unfortunately ruined it for the next group of kids. All because they wanted more candy and thought it funny to steal people’s belongings. Somehow, I just don’t find that funny.
This type of malicious behavior has no place in our community.
