Wonder how much pressure the parents put on her to take care of her iPhone. Some parents can get really strict/mean about these kind of things. So kind of hard to say "dumb teen".

So true and a reality as well. Some parents sacrifice other things just to make his kid happy with a phone or computer. My guess is that she was using the phone in public too much and the thief know how to take it from her when she got distrated. I don't like to use my phone in public, specially in a big city or where is too crowded. My phone is a 6 inch beast and can catch the eye of anyone around.

We will be living in a world of electric cars and solar power. Not need for oil.

 

 

LOL oil is used in far more then just running your automobile and energy. Oil has uses in thousands of products and applications.

True in that statement but the less oil we use in most products the better. The other remain are going to catch up at some point as well in the near future.

Hopefully phone locking will stop this non-sense.

What can be locked, can be unlocked.

 

The thieves themselves might be stupid, but the people they sell their stolen items too (fences), know how to unlock them again.

I dread to think whats going to happen when the oil runs out. We are going to tear each other to pieces. 

I'm more worried when we run out of water. We'll run out of clean, drinkable water long before we run out of oil.

Guarantee that if something like that happened... The next step will be making sea water drinkable.

Possessions aren't worth risking your life over. Pointless death is pointless.

It might not just be possessions.. they could have had work related stuff only on that phone, personal notes, ect..

depends. some people keep personal information on there phones. if somebody had phone with that kind of stuff on it stolen. it could ruin a persons life. 

vs jumping on a car, falling off, and dying?

 

I think you will find that you can recover from stolen information eventually (esp. if 15), but cannot recover from death.


It might not just be possessions.. they could have had work related stuff only on that phone, personal notes, ect.. 

Worth dying for?

 

What good is work related stuff and personal notes when you are dead?

A 7 year old doesn't need a smart phone. They need lessons in natural selection.

God,   parents also put too much pressure on kids with expensive possessions!   Without thinking that kids might take the warning to extreme.

 

Kids need to know how to value things, but value safety and health MORE.
