    Why do some kids choose to stick up for bad people and others want to protect the good?

    Did some learn that honesty and integrity are most important in life? And the others were taught differently? Is it upbringing? Spoiled/anger? Or more an immaturity/maturity issue? Do they think they are gaining power which means control in a life but in a warped way? For instance,  kids in gangs hurting and stealing vs kids that could never fathom hurting or stealing? Does that determine how they will be as an adult....

    Because that is the way people are, some children have personalities that love to do or say provocative things that causes anguish in adults.
    I wonder, those that like to stick up for bad people, are they the ones that end up going to law school?

    PARENTING.... the code of morals instilled in some kids by their parents make them social rejects and criminals, others get that sense of good and just morality instilled in them. Coming from a "good home" is no insurance policy that a child will become a "good person"

    Thanks to both of you for your views. Mick, not sure who voted you down, I voted up but maybe an attorney? LOL Sorry about that.

    Robert, what you say can be true as well. I guess it really depends on what is going on with the kid, some act out, others down. It's very confusing. I feel bad for therapists now that have to try to figure people out. It would be nice for people to just be good people but the mind is very complex, apparently.

    Thanks again for replying. I really appreciate it.

    Money, racism, greed, lazyness.. A mix of all those things make bad kids.

    Maybe those kids can see the good in these supposed "bad people" or know something about their situation that others don't. Case-by-case basis, really. It doesn't excuse bad behavior, but it can explain it. Different circumstances for different people, or nature vs nurture if you will. Perception is everything.
