Leslie's Omnibus

Bus Fumes

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.

sickening.
And so are the spelling and grammatical errors on the police report.

As usual, I think we don't have the whole story - and never will. OTOH - I don't think this is an offense for which you call the police, unless you're ready to give up custody and let the state take him. (you just told the world you can't do it yourself) What a mess some families are...

I have to say I like the other dad mentioned in the story who sold the Nintendo & videos as a result of the kids' misbehaviour.
