grokca: Did they roll the windows down?
Rindred: grokca: Did they roll the windows down?You can't roll down the trunk.(Yes, I know TFH says "truck")
RibbyK: Xerox, Kleenex and BandAid didn't know Taser was a proper noun.
MyNameIsMofuga: Police did not try to force their way into the SUV, but rather called juvenile officers who helped talk the children into coming out on their own about an hour later, McKinley said.How young do you have to be to be considered a juvenile officer?
Revek: Let the parent who hasn't considered it cast the first stone.
Nasty_McFilth: TFH is a clusterfark.
RibbyK: Gets Tasered for trying to enter his own vehicle?
Arkanaut: RibbyK:So not only is it a proper noun, it's an acronym.
RibbyK: FTA: Their father, Adolfo Gomez, 52, was Tasered when he tried to enter the SUVGets Tasered for trying to enter his own vehicle?Xerox, Kleenex and BandAid didn't know Taser was a proper noun.
JohnnyApocalypse: I haven't gotten all the details filled in yet, but someone mentioned a Chicago Trib article.1. Parents moving out west (running from debt?)2. Something happens to vehicle, maybe... sparse detail3. Park it at side of WalMart3a. who knows at what point the youngest two of the five children are bound and blindfolded, but maybe some time here?4. Wife goes in shopping5. Husband goes wandering (for help with vehicle?)6. After 911 call, police arrive and note the vehicle and child situation: two youngest outside the vehicle in restraints, three oldest (up to 15 years old) inside vehicle with stuff piled on windows7. Police free youngest children, get other officers to come and talk the other children out of the vehicle8. Dad arrested after a taserin' (trying to get in vehicle... drive off? who knows)9. Mom arrested in WalMartAnd that's how I spent my summer vacation
Coco LaFemme: Revek: Let the parent who hasn't considered it cast the first stone.I've considered doing a lot of things, like shaving my head because sometimes my hair gets so knotted it drives me farking crazy, or punching the annoying harpy at the desk next to mine in the face because she thinks it's a good idea to bathe in perfume that makes her smell like a French whore.However I've never done those things, and I never will, because I can control my impulses, whether they be frivolous or otherwise. The ability to do that is what separates us from the animals, and the parents in this article are very much on the "animals" side of the ledger.
ace in your face: Did they tie up the kids or did the teenagers? Kinda sounds like the teens may be up to no good
SarcasticFark: ace in your face: Did they tie up the kids or did the teenagers? Kinda sounds like the teens may be up to no goodFrom the article: "Deborah, was placed on supervision in October 1998 after she plead guilty to misdemeanor endangering the life of a child. She admitted leaving two young sons, then ages 2 and 3, home alone for 8 hours on March 13, 1998 when the family lived at a Naperville apartment. Prosecutors hauled her back into court in 2001 after they said she failed to comply with counseling and parenting classes. She later complied." I'm willing to bet that the teenagers had nothing to do with tying up the younger kids.
Bschott007: Seriously, what kid doesn't want to just strangle the hell out of their brother or sister at some point?
dragonchild: Bschott007: Seriously, what kid doesn't want to just strangle the hell out of their brother or sister at some point?Yes, but what stopped you? Fear of getting caught? Fear of repercussions? Some gut feeling that it's a bad thing to do? Did you ACTUALLY strangle your siblings?Being a good person is not absence of evil urges; a healthy person has powerful restraint mechanisms that make you think, "Mmmmmaybe this isn't a good idea." Normal people don't fark each other up and it's NOT because they don't want to.
Bschott007: I have to admit that when I was a teen there were many times I wanted to bind and gag my sibling. Seriously, what kid doesn't want to just strangle the hell out of their brother or sister at some point?
RibbyK: SarcasticFark: ace in your face:What's the opposite of helicopter parents?
Serious Black: Jesus would say that thinking about strangling your sibling is a sin regardless of whether your conscience told you it was a bad idea or not.
Windfoxie: Hey! The Walmart I used to work at made it on Fark!/Fark that place.
Serious Black: Windfoxie: Hey! The Walmart I used to work at made it on Fark!/Fark that place.Is it that much worse than the one on the south end of town? Or are they both shiatholes?
