      Whoa Whoa Whoa. If you can't determine your best interest at 15 years old maybe this isn't the world for you.

    15 yo out on the street in Paterson after 11pm. Who's to blame. Liberal Democrats would say Trump. I would say his parents, have them both charged with child neglect and wherever possible then deport them all.
