No, you dumb biatch, you are at fault for raising such a little shiat

WOW! Just. I cant. WTF!? This woman is why I believe everyone should be sterilized at birth and have to take a test before being allowed to have children. She says she isnt letting him off the hook? Oh boy I bet her little snowflake gets grounded for 2 weeks instead of just a week after he gets out of the hospital.

The boy's mother said she's not letting her son off the hook, but feels the owner of the vehicle should have been more responsible.

"I'm not downplaying my son's role in taking something that didn't belong to him, but I am saying they actually left their keys in the car and the vehicle could have been taken by anybody," she said.


That's actually exactly what you're doing. Then you do it again:

She said she also blames the victim's boyfriend for following her son and calling police.


"He had no right to chase my son, which it could have been a situation. Maybe it could have been just a joyride down the street. Maybe he wanted to go farther than he felt like walking," she said.


Uh huh.

Look, sometimes I don't feel like walking. You know what I should do? I should force your son to carry my fat ass. Because after all, he's just right there.

She was on TV at noon also blaming the guy for chasing her son, "he didn't have to chase him like that"

If my dog bites someone, I am held legally responsible.
Children are considered "property" of their parents.
Why is the parent not held responsible?
Throw her in jail.

I wonder, what is it about our modern society that promotes this general sentiment that no one need to take responsibility for themselves any more....

TFA starts off fairly reasonable but by page two I wanted to leap through the internet and strangle that woman with my bare hands. She should DIAF for even thinking that sort of shiat.

It's tragic that the kid got injured but at 14 he's more than old enough to get little sympathy from he. He made his coma-bed ...

Well, they make those cars so attractive to little kids. They have buttons and pedals and no kid can resist that great big steering wheel. I think the automaker's make their cars just too gosh darn appealing to 14 year old boys. I don't see a sticker on there that says that if you are 14 years old, you shouldn't be driving. Maybe they should add some kind of weight guessing drivers seat. If you are not heavy enough, then the car shouldn't move.

But I'm not saying automakers are at fault. My lawyer is. In addition to medical bills and future pain and suffering for my innocent child but also for myself, I think automakers should institute the ideas I just mentioned and make them retroactive for every car ever built.

Then our children won't be tempted to drive an automobile, crash and hurt themselves.

Kinda sounds like a short argument I lost with a teacher in 8th grade. I was all teen angst pissed off about something so I was flipping my sharp pencil up into the ceiling tiles where it would stick for several seconds then fall back down. Teacher came over to ask me what was wrong and said "you're going to hit me". 'Well, move' was the wrong answer. Or the right one, if you wanted to go talk to the assistant principal again.

I was stuck in the ensuing traffic jam last night.

I have but one thing to say about all this- The kid should die from his injuries. We don't need more like him around.

Oh and there's this:

The boy's mother said she doesn't think police should have followed her son.

"He had to no right to chase my son. It could have been a situation where maybe it was just a joyride down the street. Maybe he wanted to go further than he felt like walking," she said.

I'm rooting for death for this monkey.

Ain't nobody got time fo' that.
 
2012-08-13 03:54:24 PM
I dated a guy whose mother treated him and his brother this way. His brother is now a raging career criminal with some major sociopathic tendencies, and he's just a washed up asshole that takes responsibility for nothing. Amazing how lack of parental responsibility transfers to children so easily.

The bigger question here is, why does the reporter guy wear a reflective vest in broad daylight, yet removes it for the night time/live portion.

Assdragons like this are why we need to bring back the stocks. Pittsburgh has a really nice Market Square to set the stocks up, and local businesses could make a few bucks selling rotting tomatoes, squash and Kordell Stewart memorabilia for people to heave at those who have earned some public shaming.

According to the Houston Chronicle, one cop, the perp and a civilian were injured. So it isn't as bad as it could have been.
 
2012-08-13 03:57:08 PM
Time to use this incident to validate preconceived notions. I patiently await the racism.


"I'm not downplaying my son's role in taking something that didn't belong to him, but I am saying they actually left their keys in the car and the vehicle could have been taken by anybody," she said.

aw come on... you gotta ask? No mention of race in the article, 14 yr old just takes a jeep because the keys were in it, & mammy blames the owner for leaving the keys in it...

yes, I guess the tv spot at noon showed only here hands... they were.... (and I'm not being racist here guys, really)...her hands, mom's... they were.... dark.

For some reason the stupidity that gets me most is that he obviously wasn't wearing a seatbelt. Stealing something fun and expensive that you can't otherwise acquire is a temptation some people succumb to. Running from the cops is motivated by self-preservation. But if you're gonna steal a car and run from the cops, buckle the fark up. Now you're just a dumbass.

Whether or not it is true, the idea that the deck is strongly stacked specifically against them is prevalent in the black community. Police operations like this which are designed to ensnare people who would otherwise not have stolen the car send a strong signal to the community that "you are not trusted" and "we believe you are criminals". The mother isn't talking to the problem of her son being a criminal, but to the much worse problem of lack of trust between the local black community and the police.

When you only make up 13% of the US population but make up 40% of the prison population, and police are out targeting your neighborhoods, sometimes people will begin believing they're being persecuted. Can you blame them?

Settle down internet race warrior. I know that calling people monkeys makes you all tingly inside, but maybe there's a more constructive way to discuss these things that doesn't make you sound like a 7 year old?

I got my first traffic ticket at 14 so I'm getting a kick...

56 points by high school, 12 is enough to get license revoked. Lost it from 17 to 24, been a good doobie ever since. Hope I die in a car accident, killed by some reckless kid. Full circle baby.

I really am the person your mother warned you about.

2012-08-13 04:04:18 PM
I'm not saying it's their fault the kid got in an accident, but if your car gets stolen because you left the keys in it I'm not going to feel terribly sorry for you and your elevated insurance premiums.
