my Mom would have done the same thing, but the Police would have had to collect the lifeless pieces at the Hospital.

Wow. I'm amazed the parents didn't pre-emptively sue the police for stigmatizing their precious little snowflakes.

Kevin72: Silly Jesus: Aaaand they got sent home with their parents after a robbery instead of being put in a cage away from the rest of civilized society and we can't even know their wittle namey wamey because they are too wittle.  Sometimes I envy the Saudi criminal justice system.

Silly Jesus has come back from under a rock

Saudi Arabia to behead seven for juvenile crimes, says Amnesty International

: Reuters, Published on Mon Mar 04 2013

rRIYADH- Saudi Arabia is scheduled to execute seven men on Tuesday for crimes committed when they were juveniles aged under 18, the British-based rights group Amnesty International said.The seven were sentenced to death in 2009 for an armed robbery in 2006, but Amnesty quoted the men as saying they were tortured into confessions

The tortured into confessions part isn't cool...but if it was on video like these guys....meh, go ahead.  Armed robbers aren't likely to cure cancer in the future...go ahead and rid society of their scourge.

red5ish: When a 13 and 14 year old prey on a 9 year old you have to wonder what the parents can do to turn them around.

Send them to my dad. He's like 75 and I'm still a bit scared of him. Never really got out of hand unless you raised your voice or swore at my mom. Getting out of line with my mom would earn you a closed fist right to the center of the chest. Usually before you had completed the sentence. Can't talk if you can't breathe. I can't imagine the ass kicking he would have laid upon me for robbing a 9 year old girl. That would have been one for the ages.

/ he's a really nice guy, just had boundaries
/ seriously , not abusive, but the motherfarking rules were the rules. Somebody has to teach the boys, and Dad is the number one answer.
/deadbeat dads suck, I think that half the problem, especially in Philly.

Same here, and I'd still be thankful she got to me before my dad did.

Good on the moms though.

"Dad?" What is this thing "dad" I hear some kids have nowadays?

HotWingAgenda: So the police blasted the video all over the internet and local TV, but once they have the twerps in custody they, "don't identify minors."

I'm normally super pro-police, but that strikes me as odd.

They likely didn't know their ages while they were unidentified....

That had to be the hardest thing for those parents.  First, to see that their boys did this cowardly thing, and then to turn them in.  Much respect to them for still trying.

Here, here!  Yea, Mom!  Bet her actions and the actions of the other boy's parents just saved their kids from a long, sad adulthood.

My rule is never steal anything unless it's worth getting caught. $13 from a nine year old? Worse yet, they probably won't learn anything from this and will just try to be hard to make up for it until they finally get shot doing something stupid.

No kidding.  This is good to see.  Better than the all-too-common "not my boy, he never does anything wrong" or--worse--the kind of parent that shows up in court with a "stop snitching" shirt on during her snowflake's trial, smiling.
