As this link shows, people are not only losing jobs, they are getting prison time for myselfishspace and myuglyfacebook posts. In these cases, they deserved much harsher penalties (NEVER EVER drive again, etc), but there could be pictures that are way out of context that could cause loss in alimony, kids, jobs, honor(that doesn't apply in USA) etc.

I hope parents are aware of these issues and closely monitor what their children post. I think this is a real wake up call.

I'll post what I want, call me crazy. The trick is to avoid "sentencing hearings" altogether.

Or keep the bag on your head.

I couldn't believe that video was for real so I googled the story.

OMG! What is wrong with those girls? I would consider myself a complete and utter failure if I raised those girls. It's appalling the teens have not been charged because they didn't use force to take the money. Even worse those girls went back to the grocery store and harrassed the Girl Scout they stole from.

Yes it's truly sickening. Especially the absentee parents of those girls.

The older one was arrested later:

Later that month, the two again made the news when they walked out of Denny's without paying their tab:

These are all petty crimes but their strong sense of self-entitlement and their lack of remorse is truly astonishing.

Nost: I think what is truly appalling is that this is more commonplace than you realize. I coach youth football and some of the older brothers and sisters that I come across are unbelievably rude, entitled and downright sociopathic when it comes to morality.

A friend of mine in Iraq, who is a colonel in the Army, commented on how inured to death and destruction his soldiers are, and how little human life seems to matter to them. Makes for good soldiers, but crappy human beings.

I noticed this but thought my perception might be skewed. It's very interesting, this epidemic of self-entitlement.

I saw an indie film called Little Lionel Little which explored how one might grow up narcissistic and feeling entitled. Check out the trailers:
