My question is, why was she getting him a GBA in the first place?

That's crazy. If I had a kid that acted up like that (the whole shoplifting and punching a police officer), then I certainly wouldn't be buying him any gifts.

GOOD THING WE HAVE POLICE OFFICERS AROUND TO DISCIPLINE OUR KIDS.

My question is, why the **** did the cops bother responding to petty **** like that? The kid is 12-years-old (http://www.heraldonline.com/101/story/9901.html). He "stole" a Christmas present.

The parent just used this as the excuse to get him on the other "charges". . . .

The kid needs to be punished somehow.

You gotta be kidding me. There really should be a qualifying exam somewhere to become a parent...

He got charged with assault before he stole his GBA from under the Christmas tree.

screw the police. get the ****ing belt out or the flyswatter of doom. :D hell my parents used to use a 2x4 sometimes and worse was the small baseboard type paddle that stung like bees. :D that taught me well. **** this 'talk to your child' ****, if they don't listen, a good 5 whips in the ass won't kill.

QFE

Any kid that hasn't ever been spanked probably needs to be. -Chris Rock

No truer words spoken IMO.

Still though, this kid sounds like a genuine little sh*t. At least even though his mom isn't bright enough to deal with him herself, she recognizes when she's in over her head. Having the cops come looking for the little creep probably scared the crap out of him. Odds are he'll get a fine or something if his mom continues to press charges, and hopefully he'll straighten out a bit. Probably not, but hopefully.

Definately qualifies for a WTF, but for once, I can understand where she was coming from.

Would've loved to be a fly on the wall when she called the cops:

"Hello? 911? I...I...need the police here! My emergency...? Uh...little Johnny opened his christmas presents early...! What? Well, of course I can't control my 12 year-old son! Why should I be able to do that...? He's already been caught shoplifting, punching cops and abusing priests! Send the police in! Yes, I really do need the police for this! Me...? Well, I would provide some discipline for my preteen son, but my IQ has been certified as hovering somewhere between a loaf of bread and a retarded chimpanzee! Help! Police!"

I'll also point out that this kid's great grandmother is younger than my grandmother.

This sounds like a real winner of a family.

Why call the cops? a (hard) smack round the head would have done.

Just don't. You're just begging those of us from more enlightened countries to open another physical punishment thread in the Senate in which we'll throughly shoot down your primitive views on child disciplining. And that'll hurt worse than the "spankings" of your parents ever did:D.

What surprises me is that the police actually takes the time to follow up such calls. Stupid enough to call the police for a prematurely opened present, but to actually follow up on it?

What's up with US police and children anyhow?

Yeah, because everyone that spanks their kids beats them to an inch of their life.

And of course only America has stupid people and/or horrible kids.

LOL that is some crazy stuff there. Sadly this is one big problem we have with
society here in good ole usa. MY goodness your the parent discapline him dangit.
This can be 1 reason as to why we have all these crazy things going on in our
world due to lack of parenting. If anyone needs help from this its both the parent
and the kid. -.-
