Geez; it's like the Warcraft Freak-Out Kid writ large.

Third In Line: wage0048: Give him a whole pack of Marlboro Reds. Make him chain smoke the entire pack. He only gets to stop when he either finishes the pack or passes out.

Little fark'll never want to smoke again.

My sis had a friend whose mom caught her smoking (when the friend was 10) and made her EAT a half-pack of smokes. They had to get her stomach pumped but she became a non-smoker. I thought that was way too extreme.


No, that's not too extreme. I'd rather have a dead child than one who smokes.

What you do is since you can't beat your kids like the good 'ol days is hire some neighberhood bullies to beat the crap out of him. He will then learn that there are people out to get him if he f's up and they don't care about the laws.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention. When I was caught spray painting the convenience store, my dad made me drink all 4 bottles of paint.

cretinbob: Yep, there are more little shiats out there like this than you know.
And you can beat the hell out of them all you want, it only would make them worse.


wanna bet? He's 14, has no self control, no conscious. Going the Dr. Phil route and "talking to him" about his "feelings" isnt going to do anything. This kid needs $6.5K worth of damage done to his face to teach him a lesson.

I got spanked/hit when i was growing up and it taught me to NOT do the shiat Iw as doing.

Okay, now it's time to give the kid a whole pack of cigarettes, and force him to chain smoke the whole thing. Seriously. Don't let him stop until he finishes #20 or he passes out.

My dad was in the marines in the 50s with a guy who smoked when the smoking lamp wasn't lit, as they say. They gave him 5 cigars and made him smoke them in a footlocker. Killed him.

Personally, I think they should just cane this kid's ass until it falls off. Then lock him up.

Who amongst us has not done something similar at that age? Were you all really so perfect? Around 1975, we rode are bicycles up and down the streets kicking in side mirrors- not one left for blocks- then because of the inherent risks of getting knocked off you bike (what made it fun for me), one of us brought a hammer and took all the sport out it. >>$6500. Little asshats? Of Course. Did you loose a mirror in Palo Alto, CA around 1975? My apologies.
However, jail and or beatings would have embittered me, not helped.

He shouldn't have cigs and booze anyway, he's 14 years old. Good grief.

The only lesson this kid should be learning is what the business end of a belt feels like. I'll volunteer to use my size 46 belt and also to do the swingin'.

Wow that kind of temper tantrum in Lincoln normally has a football theme.

Ahh Nebraska, home of nothing else to do but love the Huskers.

Not if you beat them with a cane until they cry for mommy. Of course, you'll mess them up in other ways but at least I won't have to hear about it

Reminds me of the time when me and my trailer-park friends were standing on a cliff overlooking a highway, throwing rocks at cars. We would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for that meddling drill sergeant.

/as punishment, aside from getting verbally reamed by a drill sergeant, we had to clean the drunk tank
//we didn't do that again

The child is defective. Destroy it and replace it.

That neighborhood is a shiathole.

It would not surprise me if the kid's parents are both in jail for drug-related charges.

It also wouldn't surprise me if the kid learned this behavior while watching a parent go through withdrawls, and smash things up until they got money for a fix.

16th and Sumner is a block south of the "teen and letter" neighborhood, a place you don't go in after 11 unless you plan on finding a hooker or drugs, or are a hooker or drug dealer.

It's like Detroit without the abandoned buildings.

Firethorn: Kids that old are capable of risk-award analysis(if informal and flawed).

I'd present the kid the bill, then make him work until he's paid it off.

Preferably something that's hard labor, but paid piece-meal such that the harder he works, the faster he gets it paid off.

Until it's paid off - no TV, no computer, no games, no cigarettes, alcohol, nothing.

If he's not working to pay it off, he's not learning his lesson.


...soo, he can smoke and drink when hes done???...

$6,500 in damages. Let's see...that's about 3 broken windows, 4 busted headlights and maybe one or two dinged quarter panels + labor = Big Farking Deal.

I'd be willing to bet that at least 85% of the population was never that much of a dick, but since you say jail and beatings wouldn't have helped, what would have? What would it have taken to make you less if a selfish, thoughtless little prick at that age?

By the time you're a teenager, you should be able ask yourself, before you act, "How would I feel if someone did this to me?" What would it have taken to get you there?

Good question, really- I was already using drugs; my parents did not care where I was, as long as I left them alone.
One thing that did get through a couple years later was cop that yelled a lecture at us- no fines, jail etc, just the truth- He caught us doing doughnuts in a city park -mustang II, not any severe grass damage-but still a dick move to mess up a kids playing field. The cop started yelling "god damn rich kids have so much they don't know what to do with it, so they destroy it" He really got me thinking, and he was right

If you're the kind of kid who is willing to do over $6K in damages to neighborhood vehicles, why would you not be willing to steal the cigarettes from your worthless wreck of a granny?
