I feel sorry for all the teens getting reported on. Seems to be a lot of paranoia going on.

So, some people just find teens scary in general? "Studying chemistry." Interesting choice.

Half of these bring to mind the phrase, "are you kidding me?" People will call the police if anything is not routine, kind of like a dog barking at a passing truck too stupid to discern the situation for what it really is.
