I think for Scenario 7, that in 2007 PETA would have jumped in as well, throwing flour or something at poor Johnny as he was being transferred to the State pen., and then would have made a commercial or advertisement involving half naked women and red ants!   :D

Signs of the times.

Fifty years ago there was no "Columbine-style" shootings in schools either.  Times have changed, and as the scriptures state, "lawlessness will increase" (Matt. 24:12). 

The authorities may overreact to some situations, however, when something horrible happens in a school, they are blamed for not reacting sooner.

Rene, you are so right!
Our world has changed whether we want to believe it or not! It is sad to think that our children and grandchildren grow up in such a different world than some of us did. I was raised in the country way out in the middle of nowhere! Even then we began to hear of things that were unthinkable just a few years earlier. When My brother and I were growing up my older sister would take us trick or treating all over the place! Then they started warning that people were putting razor blades in apples! I was maybe 9 years old. Our parents no longer let us go trick or treating! Fast forward just like 15 years and I never let my kids go trick or treating! (I knew by this time that it was a stupid activity anyway!) ;D

It's a weird world now, you can't say anything or do anything without worrying that someone will be offended! You can't let your kids outside unless you are with them in their own fenced yard! It is definitely a sign of the times! Sad.. >:( :(

What's sad on top of that is that there was never a case of a razor-blade in an apple.  Ignorance breeds fear.  Gossip spreads ignorance.  Fear breeds hatred.  Hatred enforces ignorance.  It's true that times have changed.  It's also true that there's nothing new under the sun.  The wheels keep spinning round and round.  What goes up, must come down.  What goes down, must come up.  Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done.

OK, but I must mention this:

Johnny is a black guy at a water fountain.

Now:  He gets a drink.

1957:  Boy, you at the wrong fountain.

These are some of the reasons we homeschool our children now. It might be crazy at home, but not that kind of crazy! :)

Never say never, but if YOU heard about it when you were a child, it was an urban myth and any that MAY have happened since then were copyccats of the story. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poisoned_candy_scare

It's in several other myth-debunking sites as well.

Saved you some cavities, though.  So it probably wasn't a dentist who started it.   :D
