If you think the kids aren't natural thieves already, you're deluding yourself.
A bad apple is rotten at the core.
The only hope they have is to be taken away from their parents, and I do NOT use that answer lightly, but it seems that in these cases, they do run a better chance of living a productive and decent life under government supervision rather than their own family. I'd say this probably applies to a lot of kids in the hood these days to be completely honest.
