Guess if it don't touch you its alright. Please don't respond as I don't intend to ready it. I am sorry that I felt the need to answer you at all.

I'm leaving, on a Jet Plane.....

Are you merely on an Ego Trip or the Grand Tour, Wilma??


Hopefully this young boy will get the help he needs to grow up to be a productive adult...


Why would anyone disagree with him getting help...

It's obvious

He'll be a 1%'er and a card-carrying member of both the 'Club for Growth' and the Republican Party as he strong-arms and leverages his way to untold billion$$$.

Lucky kid

Lucky it wasn't my 11 yr old daughter .. Id put the kid over my knee and break out the rolling pin !!! Parents !!! GET WITH THE PROGRAM PLEASE, TEACH YOUR KIDS SOME RESPECT AND MORALS !! And PLEASE if you can't raise your children correctly ..well damn it STOP HAVING THEM !!!!

lucky kid

If it had been my daughter she would have kicked the crap out of him. It's all the parents fault. the kids are emulating the parents because the parents don't spend time with them. Or are too busy drinking and doing drugs. When I was 14 I had a job. I was working at Luiggi's for my parents. This kid is crying for attention. Parents listen to your kids. There is nothing more important than the kids. The parents ought to do the right thing and pay back the little girl their son robbed.

When juveniles commit adult

When juveniles commit adult crimes I think it would be appropriate for their names to be made public. When these people turn 18, then it's O.K., and then all of a sudden it can also be disclosed that they have priors as juveniles. The public has a right to know if "Billy the Kid" lives next door to them.
