Edward Stoops

Well, the youth today, there isn't very much change from when I was a youth, except that youth today have more freedom than children had when I was young. We had gangs that hung around on the corners. If you when out of your jurisdiction around in the neighborhood into some other neighborhood where you didn't belong, you were worked over. If you had a bike they'd take the bike away from you, tear it up or hide it. The youth today, I can't see is much different. The youth today has more advantages than the youth of my time. The youth in my day went out to learn a trade. Today, very few of them want to learn a trade. They are going more academic courses which I can't blame 'em, to get out of the hard work. I haven't anything against the youth today.
