“One Friday afternoon in middle school, I got called into my principal’s office. When I walked in, there were a few cops waiting for me and no one looked too happy to see me. Earlier that day, a friend and I thought it would be a good idea to rob our classmates with a BB gun. We were just playing around, but our classmates didn’t think it was too funny.”
