Description

The Westword investigates the circumstances surrounding a bizarre nine-month crime spree in Aspen, Colorado. The crime spree involved a fairly large group of high school seniors and recent high school graduates who went around town robbing liquour stores and groceries of thousands of dollars. Prendergast attempts to find out why these boys -- many of whom came from upstanding families in the communty -- would turn to a life of crime. He finds that many of the teenagers committed these crimes because they were unsupervised.
