A 9-year-old boy believed to have stowed away on a flight to Las Vegas last week was the same kid that stole a cube truck in downtown Minneapolis and led police on a chase through the city just days before, according to one of the victims of the escapade.

“In 40 years, he will be a Democratic congressman no doubt”

Heck, he’s sleazy enough to qualify for the West Wing Clown Show of Felon/Cretins right now.

And - excluding his color - he could be the Obamadork’s son.

Hopefully he was a stowaway because he knew what his parents were going to do to his behind for stealing the truck.

Probably wishful thinking I know, but if I ever did that cross country still wouldn’t be a far enough head start to escape dad’s wrath.

All it would have meant was even longer before I could sit down again...

Well, if he gets no discpline and direction in life, you’re right. However, he’s still young, so he might get back on track.

One thing is sure, the kid is a creative thinker. He kept the waitstaff at a restaurant from calling the cops when he split without paying by leaving a stolen piece of luggage at his table. Then he bypassed 3 security checkpoints with no boarding pass. So, he’s got something upstairs, he just needs to figure out how to use it constructively.

In Canada, the “minimum age of responsibility” is 12 yrs old. IOW, no charges, no detention, etc. OTOH, the young offender can be taken into care, and sent to a foster home, where the parents know something about discipline.

I suspect that the laws in the U.S. are similar; but, I don’t know the details. Anyone?

My late father’s brown leather belt across the back of the legs and on the buttocks 8-10 times would be helpful. And if there is sassing back, my late mother from the front washing out the mouth with soap is a good remedy.

It all works wonders for bad behavior.

Sounds like a kid from down the street back in my old neighborhood.

At age 8 he stole a car and got into a high-speed chase with the cops. They were chasing him up a hill that dead-ended. He decided to do what he had seen done in every such instance on TV...threw the car in reverse and hopped out. It rolled down the hill and smashed-up 3 police cruisers.

Last I heard he was doing time for armed robbery in Texas.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Just such drive in a 9 year old is amazing to contemplate.

Here in Pennsylvania we had an 11 year old who shot and killed his father’s pregnant girlfriend (20 gauge to the back of the head). He was tried via the Juvenile system (partly because of UN pressure about trying an 11 year old as an adult) and was found “delinquent” in a closed-door hearing with no jury and no press. His status will be reviewed every six months. So he could be out in six months, or twelve, or twenty-four. In any case they can’t hold him past his 21st birthday.
