Nick Peters reported from Washington, D.C., for The Sunday Times (of London) that "gun-toting girl gangs stake claim to America's streets." Significantly, he notes, "the arrest rate for teenage girls is now twice that of teenage boys. In some areas of the country, girls account for nearly 25 percent of violent juvenile crime, including murder, robbery with violence—even rape."

This article unwittingly revealed that the cause of much of this macabre behavior is the breaking of God's law in the home: "At the core of the crisis are home lives where violence, sexual abuse and drug taking are commonplace." (Source: The Sunday Times.)
