Here's another great example of fine parenting. Seems to me that the mother and the grandmother could have put a stop to this by simply removing temptation from a kid who has no impulse control and over whom they obviously have no influence. But, noooooooooooo. Let's get the police involved.
Here's another good question: if the gift tag had the kid's name on it and it was in plain sight, isn't it technically his? How can this be theft? Yes, it's crappy behavior... but theft? C'mon. It's just lazy parenting.
