How are Predators and Robberies Different?
Predators and robbers are two distinct things in the world. First of all, when you hear people saying that some person or animal is a predator or a robber, it means that they are going after humans for food. From my point of view, the “predator” is just another type of animal like a wolf or bear would be. The way picture books depict it, those animals would be eating people. That’s not the case though. They are just animals looking for food like everybody else. The people in the pictures (people losing their lives) are not just some kind of food for those animals.
On the other hand, robbers are not looking for food. They just want to steal things from you and from the society, and they exist anywhere. If there are some robbers around, you know that it’s better to be careful because it could happen to you. On the other hand, predators don’t go around looking for people to eat. They are just animals that want to hunt and kill. They only want to eat things.
Why the Police Can’t Catch Every Criminal
The police can’t catch everyone. They just can’t. It’s like a fantasy that people go around thinking, but they just don’t know. I mean, they make a lot of arrests, but they don’t catch everyone. That is what shows like CSI have shown us – that the police are always after criminals. Maybe in the US or the UK, they are more successful than other countries. My mom’s family is from Nicaragua and they have told me that there is a lot of crime in that country. They say that the police force isn’t doing enough to control it ALL. Maybe if they had more officers there, criminals would be caught more often. Take the US, for example. They have a huge police force, but they still don’t catch everyone. I mean, there are only so many people in a particular city that you can have on the force at any given time. But still, surely they get some of them!
So if you think about it – does it matter how much effort is put into catching criminals? I mean, you hear about people that barely get even a slap on the wrist for committing murder or something like that. It ends up not really mattering in the long run. If a person is convicted of murder, they are going to be punished, no matter what. It’s only how much you are going to get that matters.
Should You Let Your Kids Walk to School Alone?
From what I have seen, and from the experience that I had when I was a kid, it’s not always safe for kids to walk to school by themselves. They might be caught off guard by someone who wants to harm them. It is more likely for a kid to be robbed if they are wearing expensive sneakers or jeans. If parents have their kids walk to school alone, they have to “guard” their kids from the predators and robbers. Even though there are many benefits of letting kids walk to school alone, it’s still better for parents to have them go with them.
The first reason why parents shouldn’t have their kids walk to school alone is because it isn’t safe for them. A lot of people tend to commit crimes and steal things from people when they are walking alone. There are many kinds of predators around the neighborhood that can harm a kid if they aren’t careful enough. Parents should at least be with their kids when they walk alone on the streets. A predator could be hiding somewhere, waiting for a kid to walk by so that he/she can pull over and rob them. This is also why parents should never let their kids leave their house alone.
Should Parents Be Worried About Their Kids Walking Around at Night?
Parents should not be worried about their kids walking around at night. I mean, it’s the parents who have to worry about their kids being away from them and then getting into trouble. I don’t know if these young people nowadays know how to be wary of criminals and predators. As a kid, you learn what is good and bad. It’s just like saying that dogs shouldn’t go out at night because they might get attacked by wolves or coyotes. The dogs know better than the kids do, that’s all.
The only time that I have ever had a problem because of my kids walking around at night was when I was in high school. Once, my brother and I were late for our curfew, but we had a good excuse: We were at his house and his parents gave us permission to stay there. We got caught by the police; they found our parents’ address from where we rode the bus — and took us home. And that’s about it. My parents never found out about it, but I had to get a note from them saying that we were allowed to spend the night at my brother’s house.
