Abstract

A police officer is interviewing a 14 year-old 'frequent flyer' in the juvenile justice system. In an effort to gauge the extent of this young man's recent exploits, the police officer poses the following question: 'So - could you have stolen upwards of twenty cars?' 'Ye-eh' replied the young offender indignantly 'Of course'.
