I used to think cerial killers were cereal makers that hated their jobs so they bought boxes of cereal and stabed it untill the box could not hold the cereal at all. then they crushed the cereal unto little crumbs.

untill I was 9 I use to watch FBI most wanted and whenever I heard cerial killer I think poor cereal then go up to my mom and ask to go to the store and check if the cereal is still ok...........wow

I used to believe that when the news reported that a woman got "raped"... it meant someone caught her and hit her with a garden rake, or raked her up her back leaving nasty scratches.... and thats why it was such a horrable thing when a woman is "raked"

I dont know where this came from, probably one of my brothers...but untill I was about 11 I believed that if you were in jail long enough you could become a judge. Therefore all lawyers and judges being exconvicts..?

As a child it was my belief that people went to school to learn how to be criminals. In my mind I pictured a classroom full of men all dressed in black catsuits sitting at desks taking copious notes.

When I was about 9 or 10 and first heard of "hookers", I thought they were women who hung out just about anywhere and snatched unsuspecting men that passed by with shepherd's crooks, didn't learn the truth for several years after, even after watching Pretty Woman.

I thought crimes were a lot rarer than they actually were--for instance, if someone held up a gas station in Maine, it would be on the news all over the country, with pictures on TV and massive manhunts going on. When I read in a book that "there has been no crime in all of Mexico for five days" (because the criminals were all working together on a huge plot), I didn't see why that was such a big deal.

I thought that when someone was called an "ex-con," I didn't know that meant "ex-convict." I thought it meant that the person was an "ex-con artist." I thought he or she used to con people out of money, but not anymore.

I used to believe that when a woman was raped, she was actually being scraped. So for a while I said to anybody that would listen that when I fell off my bike I was raped. Needless to say alot of my teacers talked to my parents.

I always used to think that there was an invisible mafia and they were always trying to shoot me with their guns. But every movement I made throughout the day would "dodge" the bullets and never get hit. I could only imagine how angry they would get as they kept missing. maybe they should take mafia-shooting lessons..............invisibly

Thankfully as a child, I had no concept of "assault" and a battery was what made things work. With the term "assault and battery", for some reason I thought it must refer to a car battery and I tried to comprehend why someone would pour salt on one.

When I was a kid, I was a bit confused about the word 'prosecuted' and consequently thought that prostitutes were all people who had been caught trespassing. You know, "Trespassers will be Prosecuted."
