The Bad Seed

He seemed to be a really wholesome kid. You know, the clean-cut, all-American type. Sure, when he was a teenager he got busted on occasion for vandalism, but what teenager hasn’t, you know what I’m saying?

I dont exactly know what happened that caused him to turn into such a churl. Maybe it was the father who abandoned him or his alcoholic mother who shaped him. Or perhaps it was the time he spent in juvy that exacerbated his wayward journey into adulthood. Coulda been he was just born that way, like a bad seed. It’s just a shame that he grew up to be a shady character who was capable of committing such heinous acts of domestic violence.

    It definitely happens, most people who commit crime have had a bad start in life. Xx
