spentmiles: Is this some sort of extended allegory representing the disenchantment of British youth post World War Two?
Millennium: it's not fair to charge the parents
Millennium: "Kids being kids"? Seriously?Um, no. A kid being a kid might draw on the wall or maybe spill a can of paint. This goes way, way beyond that, even when you account for three kids.The kids are too young to be charged, and it's not fair to charge the parents, but it is fair to hold the parents liable for the damage. It sounds like that happened, though, so I'm cool with it.
kiyote: Please, That's smalltime. The Dixon's comptroller, Rita Crundwell, just got caught siphoning off 53 million dollars over the last 20 years to indulge her love of quarter horses and motor homes.Those kids would have to set off a small nuke to do that much damage.
bunner: Millennium: it's not fair to charge the parentsReally? Why's that, then? I'm quite sure if your cows stampede and wreck your neighbor's house, you're financially culpable.
Aidan: Just kids being kids?Uh. No.Jesus fark if my kid ever... EVER...Beatings.
vegasj: I wonder if these were Obama's sons
bunner: -23867 / 10
craxyd: Aidan: Just kids being kids?Uh. No.Jesus fark if my kid ever... EVER...Beatings.Same here. I shudder to think of what my mom would have done to me if I had pulled some stoopid shiat like that
Sick_tired_and_needing_to_laugh: "I brought in into this world and I'll take you out just as fast. Then I'll make a new one looks just like you..."
Intoxoman: craxyd: Aidan: Just kids being kids?Uh. No.Jesus fark if my kid ever... EVER...Beatings.Same here. I shudder to think of what my mom would have done to me if I had pulled some stoopid shiat like thatSame here except dad. Just thinking about it scares me. Though I do deserve a spanking for farking up my new hardwood floor, which now has to be redone.
Cheesehead_Dave: bunner: Millennium: it's not fair to charge the parentsReally? Why's that, then? I'm quite sure if your cows stampede and wreck your neighbor's house, you're financially culpable.FTFA: "Under Illinois law, children younger than 10 cannot be charged with a criminal offense, nor can their parents, although they may be liable for the damage..."The parents are financially liable, they just can't be charged with a crime.
KrispyKritter: Aidan: Just kids being kids?Uh. No.Jesus fark if my kid ever... EVER...Beatings.you forget what it's like to be 2-3 feet tall. you're supposed to do stupid shiat when you're a kid, that's when you can get away with it. this stuff happens all the time. get outside once in a while. "beatings" my arse, ITG.
profplump: If beatings are reasonable and effective, why don't we administer them to adults? When you boss can hold you hostage and spank you whenever he decides, with no due process, that you blew a $10k deal for the company, then we can have a discussion about the place of beatings as a tool of discipline, retribution, or whatever else they're supposed to accomplish. Until that time I feel pretty safe saying it's just abuse that certain adults want to inflict on some of the most powerless members of our society.I know many of the "I heart beating children" posts are just low-level attention whoring, but such behavior is unwise for the same reason saying "I heart beating blacks" is unwise -- there are enough people around who believe the statement could be true that they'll read the whole thread as a mass approval of their twisted viewpoint. We should be working to reduce tolerance of child abuse, not normalize it.
quietwalker: It may cost a bit in time, effort, and supplies to repaint the walls of the house, but I doubt it'd be 10k.
quietwalker: Frankly, I did - and mostly got away with - much worse shiat than this when I was a kid. It really is just kids being kids.I'd be more surprised to hear how they came up with a 10,000$ damage bill as a result of spilled paint and spraypaint.In fact, it sounds like they found these things on site, which leads me to believe that this on-sale house was in the process of being repainted or touched up in the first place. It may cost a bit in time, effort, and supplies to repaint the walls of the house, but I doubt it'd be 10k.
Hermione_Granger: White kids just being white kids.They get involved in gangs younger and younger these days. farking white hoodlums. Somebody needs to lock them up. That will teach the little white hoodrats a lesson.And where are their parents? Probably smoking meth or out trying to sell their damned foodstamps for another hit. farking losers.You can't teach white people shiat. Feed them and they just farking look for another handout and their kids look for another house to vandalize.I know some white people are ok, but most of them are dirty, nasty, evil, rats and they don't half take care of their kids. I hope none of them ever live next door to me./am I doing it right?
