The saddest change is that kids can't just walk outside and play anymore because of all the sick and twisted b@stards out there.

Sick and twisted b@stards have always existed. I have yet to see any conclusive evidence that there are more of them around, as a percentage of the population, than in past decades or centuries.

Maybe they’re just more noticeable then, ‘cause I agree with Pietro.

I think there are more sickos that act on it because we are more urban, and thus:

(1) don’t have the same support structure (which lets the worst impulses take over) and, more importantly:

(2) people can more easily get away with stuff -— in a small villages, everyone knew who the wackos and the wacko families were

Serial killers started with large cities where people didn’t know their neighbors (jack the ripper, world’s fair, etc).

I don't know if I agree there's no more of them, but there's one thing for certain, they are much bolder.

It's very rare to hear of a known child molester getting its head turned into soccer ball these days, so they have much less to fear.
