This picture reminds me of a juvenile delinquent that I used to babysit in the 80's. TRAVIS. Travis was a 5-year-old kid from hell. And 10 bucks says he was kicked out of juvenile hall as a teenager and then went straight to Folsom Prison. I used to catch him cussing me out when he thought I was out of earshot. Once I snuck up on him during his nap time and heard him muttering about me as he tried to climb out his second story bedroom window: "That bitch can't tell me what to do. I'll kick her fat ass!"
