"Canning's father, retired Lincoln Park Police Chief Sean Canning,"

Her dad retired from the Lincoln Park PD with a $95K pension at the ripe old age of 47.   Most of you reading this probably don't realize what NJ municipal police jobs are like.   They get hired through nepotism or patronage, get paid big money for doing little or no work, have Cadillac health care plans, and defined benefit pension plans that make third world dictators envious.  When they retire, mostly in their 40s, they are handed checks for $200K-$300K for  unused/sick/vacation/personal days. Apparently these supermen never take a day off.  The weekend after they retire, they are rehired at some other government job,usually paying at least six figures, while they collect six figure pensions from their police jobs.

Is this girl a spoiled, lazy, entitled, do-nothing?  Yup.  I wonder where she learned it.

She's suing them to pay for her college education?

Why stop there. She should sue them to purchase her a home of her own.

Everyone is entitled to a comfortable standard of living regardless of effort or personal choices. I learned it in threads saying you're supposed to earn enough to support your wife and three children at the shiattiest fast-food job available , at the lowest wages you can legally be paid.

kitsuneymg: In recent months, Rachel Canning has been living in Rockaway Township with the family of her best friend. The newspaper reports the friend's father, former Morris County Freeholder John Inglesino, is funding the lawsuit and hired the attorney who is representing Rachel Canning.

Nothing suspicious there.

/at least she's 18 now.


As someone who's raising a stray teen, if the shiatty parents of my stray had any money, I'd be lawyer shopping also.  As it is, we're just building up some good karma.  Kid is not nearly as mouthy as my own, and a hell of a lot more appreciative.  But the grocery bill is murder.

I went to school with a guy where on his 18th birthday his parents kicked him out.  He was a good student, never got in trouble, was not a problem child, etc.  His parents took the philosophy of "well, you are 18 and now on your own, good luck bud!"

This happened late first semester (November IIRC), and by January he looked like shiat, got mixed up with the wrong crowed, started drinking heavily and doing drugs.  He had no job, no car, and no place to live.  He basically bounced from couch to couch.  By the end of the school year, he had been in and out of jail a few times, had a DUI under his belt, etc.

I saw him years later and he cleaned up his act, apparently a teacher of ours (male) took him in after graduation, helped him get a job, go through the community college system and transfer to UCLA.

He's now a finance director at a pretty big company.  So good on him and mad respect for the teacher that took sympathy on him.  He did mention that after high school he shut out his family completely and had not seen them in years.  Obviously he's a bit bitter.

I just could not imagine doing that to your child.

I was gonna say, I can't imagine kicking my slack teen out for anything less than a jail-able offence, but if dad-o is a cop, sassy eyerolls and slow obedience are jail-able aren't they? At least for a few hours. Yup. Definitely more to the story, methinks.

steamingpile: ferretman: The 'ME' generation poster child.

Yeah spoiled biatch generation is closer to reality.

The step kid thinks we have to buy him the car he picked out, a Cadillac escalade, because in his words "we make enough". I simply told him "no, there is no we me and his mother make enough, you just get to mooch for a while".

But it shouldn't shock me since he thinks every kid has a 30 60" flat screen, ps3, and a personal PC in their bedroom.


A personal Personal Computer?

Flat screens are cheap.

We still think of them as luxury items, but they aren't, really.

This is what enabling does for people.  Just like welfare, if you take care of somebody with no consequences for their actions they'll never want to get off the tit.

Endive Wombat: I just could not imagine doing that to your child.


I was a bit of a fark up during the latter half of high school, despite breaking the curves on any standardized tests taken before 10th grade. Needless to say, parents and teachers were pissed. Long story short, I found myself homeless in the middle of winter during my senior year. I slept in a friend's basement on a cot by the furnace until I graduated, and needless to say I stared putting effort into school at that point. Eventually went to college, got a masters and a real job blah blah blah but there was no greater reality check than seriously considering which dumpster would be the warmest place to sleep that night I was booted. Luckily, said friend saw me walking on Rt 9 and pulled over.

This girl doesn't seem like a problem child, but she does need a reality check. Her current ward is not doing her any favors by enabling her. My guess is there's a boyfriend involved, and would not be surprised if that's who's parents took her in.

Girl says she was chucked out
Girl's parents say she left because she didn't like house rules and they want her back

My guess is the house rules were pretty farking draconian, and that there is a slow news day in NJ

There's more to this story, but it's hard to tell because of the lack of details, there's a little more in the link in the article.

It looks like there's a college fund involved. I'm going to go out on a limb and say it could be a situation where it's jointly held by the kid and parents and the parents won't let the kid withdraw from it. (If it's one of the tax sheltered plans, it will get very interesting)

Consequences for, "I'm 18! You can't tell me what to do! "

I moved out at 18 when my mom gave me the "It's my house and you live by my rules while your under my roof." The rule in question was come home directly from school. None of my brothers had the same rule. So I moved out during my senior year and got a room near campus and I was all set when I started college the next year. Whereas most freshman were just moving in, I had been living there for 9 months. I remember the rush of freedom of being able to stay at a friends house for a whole week and not having to tell anyone. Some people got into drugs/alcohol/etc. I was too concerned that I'd lose my job if I did something like that.

Glitchwerks: I am pretty sure your parents don't owe you a damn thing after you turn 18.


Depends on the state.  The matter becomes complex in the case of a divorce and one of the spouses has different ideas about how much university to pay for.  It is not unheard of that a spiteful ex-spouse will opt to send Junior to a posh private university just to fark with a hated erstwhile life partner, and this may be considered by the court to be part of child support.

And let us all share a moment of silence for friends whose life disasters have served as a warning sign to us all.

/but for the Grace of God
