PHOENIX – Police in Phoenix say they've arrested a woman accused of leading an armed robbery gang involving her 12- and 14-year-old sons.

Police say 51-year-old Cynthia White Roberson coached some of the four boys and three men who would face charges with her. The suspects are accused of at least 20 armed robberies in Phoenix and Glendale since late April.

Police say Roberson lost her job six weeks ago and guilted her sons and some of the others into committing the robberies to pay for rent and a car loan.

“Guilty ass sin”. I don’t know but I’m pretty sure that’s her face, but it could be her ass.

Is this why people are so against this “home schooling” thing? I mean, the boys were learning a trade, right?

Guilting a family member into doing something illegal is the mark of a narcissistic abuser.

Her boys should be taken away from her. She's dangerous.

"....the mark of a narcissistic abuser."

Still, it's not as abusive as a birth-parent sending kids to a government school.

The Penitent Thief

A Boy who had been taught by his Mother to steal grew to be a man and was a professional public official. One day he was taken in the act and condemned to die. While going to the place of execution he passed his Mother and said to her:

“Behold your work! If you had not taught me to steal, I should not have come to this.”

“Indeed!” said the Mother. “And who, pray, taught you to be detected?”

— Ambrose Bierce, Aesopus Emendatus.
