When I was 2, I stole candy from a drugstore and of course, I didn't know what I was doing so my parents weren't mad. When I was 6, my parents told me about. I was terrified of going to jail and I couldn't sleep for months!
When I was around three, my dad would always joke that people weren't allowed to walk on logs that had drifted up onto the beach. He said that the log police would come and arrest us. Until about age 6, I believed that and spend my days terrified that I would be arrested for walking on logs.
I used to believe that joy riding was riding in the car without a destination or purpose so every time my mom would put me in the car to drive me around so I would fall asleep I would have to think of a excuse for the police for when they pulled us over for having a ‘fun time driving’ I lived in fear of being put in jail for having fun in the car!
I was told by my grandmother that all bad people had to eat blackeyed peas and cornbread and drank only water when they get put into jail.
I thought there might be a law that you needed to be a certain age to buy a cup of coffee. I was almost suprised as a teenager that I could get away with it.
When I was younger, my mom told me that if i keep writing on myself with ink, that it was against the law and the ink police was going to come and take me away from her.... It got me to stop writing on myself...lol
I used to believe that if I watched America's Most Wanted, the criminal that they were looking for would get mad because I was watching it and come get me.
When I was quite young, I saw an Alfred Hitchcock tv show that had these two brothers killing their aunt to get her money by grinding up glass and putting it in her food. After that, whenever my mom made soft boiled eggs for me and I found a small piece of shell in it, I thought it was glass and that she was trying to kill me.
I used to think burglers were like those pool creepy crawleys but on a pole on wheels with blue and white streamers!!! Don't know where I got that one from.
I used to believe that thrift stores were where thief's came to sell all the goods they stole. I couldn't figure out why the police didn't just wait outside the store to catch the thief's.
i used to believe that when you sleep you had to cover your whole body. and if you didnt a robber would come in and cut off whatever part of your body was showing. sometimes i left my hair out hoping i could get just a haircut
When i was small, after seeing a poster in mcdonalds, i thought that robbers were little burgers with blindfolds. It made sence because another name for them was 'burglars'
Every time my family traveled to the coast, they'd buy a crab. Never wanting to share it with me, they told me that it was illegal for people under 21 to eat crab..I believed them for several years.
I used to be really paranoid about robbers breaking into our house when I was younger....
So my grand plan to thwart the criminals was to pretend to be a robber too - by dressing all in black, with a black stripy jumper, and a eye mask and a sack that had 'Swag' printed on it. Then I could go to the robbers hideout with them, and get all our stuff back.
My parents gently dissuaded me, saying that we didn't need any extra security, and it would be very dangerous for me.
Probably just as well - I would have looked more like 'Hamburglar' (remember him?!) than a robber! In fact, that's probably where I got the idea from!!
When I was little I used to believe that college really meant jail. So when my older sister was planning to go to college, I cried.
Whilst watching re-constructions of crimes on the the t.v. i could never fully grasp what sort of person would film an armed robbery, rape, murder etc rather than doing something to prevent it. I am not willing to say how long this moral dilema troubled but suffice to say i was enjoying a pint in a pub (leagally!) when i was given an explanation for their lack of morals!
i used to think being "prosecuted" meant getting the death penalty. i remember crying hyserically when my family and i went hiking, and there was a very old sign that said "do not trespass, violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law" i totally thought if we got caught we'd immediately get the electric chair. i thought it was an awful extreme punishment.
Me and my cousin were watching tv (me being 12 and mycousin being 6)
And we were watching the news and there was a thing about a molester so he asked me what that was so I said oh you mean the guy named moe lester??? He's a famous guy that livs in orogon! Of course he believed me and I'm glad that noone heard becasue I didn't want my aunt to go into dep covo's about the good people in the world and bad people who want to hur you!
LOL good times man! That cracks me up but I guess you sorta have to be there for it to be funny but I think it's really funny!
Hey we all have our own points of veiws!
When I was 14 or 15 I used to believe that rape just meant anal sex, so I wondered why rapists were sent to jail. What was all the fuss about, different people like different things and they shouldn´t be punished for that!!! (I was corrected many (many) years after that..., i´m a lawyer now...)
I used to believe that a widower was a guy who killed married husbands to make thier wife a widow
