Thugs R Us

I’ll admit – it has been a slow day at work, thus the second blog posting in less than two hours. I’m intrigued by this plot that has been uncovered today – seven young men have been implicated in a plot to blow up the Sears Tower. That’s not what intrigues me. What I find amusing (and terrifying) is what their mothers had to say about it:

Mothers of two of the indicted men denied reports that their sons were followers of Islam. The mothers told CNN that their sons are devout Christians who closely follow the teachings of the Bible and their group was nothing more than a religious study group.

I wanted to tell these mothers, “Perhaps your attitude is the reason your sons are a bunch of thugs.” That’s right – they weren’t out drinking; they were only at a sleep-over. They weren’t using drugs – their friends were and their sons just happened to be with the wrong people at the wrong time. They are all so misunderstood, aren’t they?
