A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

TOUGH LOVE


A South Carolina mom had her son arrested for playing with one of his Christmas present early.

It seems the kid kept sneaking into his grandmother's house and rummaging around to find the hidden Nintendo Game Boy after his mother kept telling him not to do so.

She got so fed up with his bad behavior, she called police who arrested him for petty larceny and took him to the station in handcuffs. His mother sprung him later.

Gives a new meaning to time out (or in), don't you think?

Where's that lump of coal when you need it?

Let's pray that this child never again has handcuffs put around his wrist.

Maybe he'll be under house arrest..hard to play with the controllers with handcuffs!...better punishment is if he does not get that Nintendo game at all..hey, this may give some gamers an idea for the next video game.."House Arrest"..

I wonder where this 12 year-old child's father is? Oh, wait! It's not politically correct to ask that question. Just ask Dan Quayle.

This 12 year old boy has a mother who is now 27 years old.
It seems this kid never had a chance coming out!
Just another throw away kid!
How sad!

I think the mom did a great thing. It is better to act now and save some major heartache later. Good for her, single or not!
