The 17yr old was not too bright but neither was the cop for leaving the stuff where it could be stolen so easily. Thank the Lord he was found before anyone was hurt.

You see in his own hugely dysfunctional community this highly ignorant example is held in high esteem by others. Clay does this simply to show off and get "street cred" among his peers. There are a totally different (and pitiful) set of standards ,values, behaviors, attitudes and morals which are adopted early and then adhered to ...and this is a major part of why this community cannot find continuous success in the USA. The truth though is that Clay Moses will likely not see 21 if he doesn't take a detour off the ghetto highway soon. It may already be too late.
