Hmm, that could be perfectly true (and I am sure it is). Although, I don't know about where you live, however we have a curfew for those under a certain age. So, if kids, let's say ten or eight years old (like in one of the stories), were wondering about alone, the patrolling officers in the area would end up doing something about it. If officers weren't in the area, most adults I know would call the police if they saw young kids (or even teens) out wondering alone late at night. I am sure there are many cases in which places didn't have a curfew, didn't have many patrols and didn't have many concerned adults, so young children/etc wondering alone, wearing contacts to scare strangers could go unnoticed. Though it does bring up the question how children of alcoholics, drug addicts, etc could afford contact lenses that usually go for at least $100 dollars a pair (if lucky, most I saw and most that were posted were double that) and why they would waste the money on such items (when usually in those situations they need all the spare money they have just to eat daily). Also consider for a moment, most places online (at least the more legit ones) need permission from an eye doctor to purchase the special contacts and most stores I have been into wouldn't sell them to a minor (I tried to buy an electric blue pair once in the mall when I was sixteen and they refused. I am sure there is always a possibility not all places are like that, however, it is something that should be considered when one jumps straight for the "it's just contacts, get over it dude" argument, not saying you are like that, just putting it out there). I am also not trying to justify the stories, I am just trying to look at the facts given in a logical manner :]
