Bad move. The kid should have sued the mom for pot support money instead.

maybe a stern male parent/uncle/grandfather, if any volunteers or even the general public..

He and that ditzy NJ girl who’s suing her parents should be thrown into a cell together.

If that happens, he'll probably burn the house down.

The problem is they might breed. I don’t think the world deserves or is ready for that.
