Induct this kid into the CIA already.  He's clearly cut out for it, he just needs some proper training and discipline.

Obviously Leonard DiCaprio should be called to the carpet for encouraging this sort of behavior.

Wouldn't that be grand theft aero?

The court-appointed psychologist was reported as saying, "I met this nine year old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes, the Devil's eyes."

No this kid, at NINE YEARS OLD, has already stolen a car once, and apparently snuck into an amusement park by pretending to be part of a large family group

Most emphatically: THIS!

Send that kid to military school, then off to the CIA. He's a budding Ethan Hunt!

<i>included hanging out at a Bloomington, Minnesota, water park and blending in with a large family to slip through without paying.</i>

At least he's studying history.  He learned that from Napoleon.

Budding sociopath. Probably will do great in politics, law, or the CIA--if they can teach him properly before he hits adulthood. Bet Mom did help him get on that flight. With a kid like that I bet she is damn tired. Might not even be her fault he is so "Challenging".
 
2013-10-08 01:50:32 PM
Charge him as an adult.  Seven is the age of reason, he knew what he was doing.
 
2013-10-08 01:51:47 PM
There's a difference between "challenging" and "I Wanna Be The Parent".

I've read the early history of some modern super-soldiers (David Hackworth, John Paul Vann). Very much the "challenging children." Indoctrinate them with socially beneficial values and goals and guide them into special operations.
 
2013-10-08 01:55:49 PM
Mom help the kid on the plane to get him out of her hair?

Sounds plausible
 
2013-10-08 01:55:52 PM
The newspaper reported that Moore said the boy's mother works at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and that "there is also an investigation into whether she aided him flying to Las Vegas." The newspaper did not report who was conducting that investigation.

Mom definitely helped him, so he's not so much as a challenge, he's just a twat who needs a real parent, not a facilitator.

The boy's status was to be discussed in a Las Vegas court Tuesday, a spokesman for Minnesota's Hennepin County said. He remained there pending a decision on what to do with him.

Stick him in a paper bag and put him on a shelf in the evidence closet.

I blame the airport. The pimps should have picked him up at the food court and had him 'working it on da strip' like the good old days. Now with the TSA hovering everywhere, you can't poach a runaway before the authorities get to 'em. And don't get me started on 16 year old runaway girls. They've already decided they're getting 55% and it's all out calls - no walking the street for them. Anything less, they're off to the valley to do porn for the internet.

farking helicopter parents and their "special" snowflake children.

I don't know if I think it's hilarious or sad that there's a line of 10 cars waiting outside of every bus stop for their child to get off the school bus.  Since when did kids lose the ability to walk a block home from the bus stop?

Really?  Because I had to walk home from the bus stop in the 1970's, and crime (including youth crime) was much, much greater back then.

Don't build a wall for this kid. Build him a narrow hallway to where you want him to end up. Keep an eye on your tools though.

I guess it all depends on where you live - but where I live we just broke the homicide record last year. If I had kids I sure as shiat wouldn't let them walk home alone.

JERRY MURPHY MISSING

HIS FATHER THINKS THE BOY WAS MURDERED

Brooklyn Daily Eagle July 28, 1893

The lad was bound out last winter by St. John's Home to James Frahy a Bridgehampton Farmer, since which time nothing has been heard of him. Frahy says Jerry started to walk home sometime in March.

Jerimiah Murphy of 23 south 6st believes that his 12-year-old son and namesake has been murdered, although he has no direct evidence of  which to base such an accusation. According to the story he told an Eagle reporter last evening he has been engaged in an unfailing search for Jeremiah ever sense last February.

"In May a year ago," said he," my wife's health became so bad that she was unable to look after the house and as I was out of work at the time, we were unable to support our two little boys and I had them committed to St. John's home. A month later things looked so much brighter -- I applied to have both  boys returned to me, and was told at the office of the Commissioner of Charities and corrections that my request would be granted. I went to the home and found Bennie but learned that Jeremiah had been apprenticed to a Farmer named James Fahey of Bridgehampton. I would have gone there at once but was attacked by illness again and it was several months before I could move. Then I wrote to Mr. Fahey asking that my son be sent home at once. I got no answer to this, and in February I sent another letter. This letter this letter brought a reply from Fahey to the effect that Jeremiah had decided to, come home by himself. I waited patiently for the boy for over a week and then wrote his employer again and received the following reply

Dear Sir

in reply to your letter which I received a week ago I would say that I was very much surprised to hear that Jerry has not reached home yet. I thought he had to be home long ago. Well, Mr. Murphy inquired all through sag Harbor and I could not find any trace of him.

My opinion is that he walked up Long Island intending to reach home and found work somewhere and he will come home to you. Tell your wife not to worry herself about him as he was abundantly capable of looking after himself.

Mr Murphy continued

As soon as I received this letter I went down to Bridgehampton myself and was cordially treated by Mr. Fahey. Nowhere however, did I learn anything regarding my boy's fate, although some people thought he might have been put out of the way. Nobody saw him when he left the farm and started for Brooklyn, and it looks as if he were made away with, but I am to poor to prosecute the search as it should be prosecuted and accordingly have but little hopes of ever seeing my boy again. 

Of course there wasn't a Nancy Grace discussing #Farmboy and #Faheydidit with the town criers and penny dreadful salesmen of the day.

There are plenty of reasons a young boy would steal a car, drive to the airport, and board a flight to Vegas. Did anyone check to see if there was an Arm Wrestling Championship going on, and perhaps an evil grandfather involved?

Give it up. You can't win against the reptile part of a parent's brain. Statistics and facts be damned, we've made kids less street smart because kiddy fiddlers are hiding behind every bush. It's starting to become a mass delusion on the scale of witchcraft.

I can do one better. I live in a small village, about 1 mile long x 1/2 mile. I'm basically in the middle.The school is about 1/4 mile away. There is a bus stop across the street. Parents drive their kids to the bus stop, then the bus drives them the other two blocks......

Pleas. When I was growing up, there were no :special" or "challenging " labels. You just beat the hell out of the kid. Give them a good smack, and if it doesn't work, put your back into the next smack.

It ain't any more dangerous now than it was 20 years ago, 30 years ago, 50 years ago...There's danger now, there was danger then. The difference is weather or not parents shiat their pants every time Junior goes outside.

This can't be the boy's fault because FOX news was saying that the TSA was blaming this on his behavior.  Therefore since 0bama and furthermore.

Have you seen the admission prices of amusement parks? The waterpark incident is why the Feds got involved in the first place.
