umm why does it say alcohol limit was .02 past the legal limit for minors? I thought it was against the law for "minors" to drink so shouldn't any limit be over the limit?

communication doesnt have to physical, parents have to look into themselves when children act out like this.. attention no matter positive or negative is what they acquire.. and Bottybuoy! lastword, what kind of picture is that (freaks make the news dont comment on it, your probably a pastor.) Put your kids in a program that will stimulate their eager to learn minds not just let them run wild w/no shoes and hope they make it back home before it gets late..

There is a legal blood alcohol limit for minors? Aren't minors defined as "under 18"? Isn't the drinking age still 21 in the US of A??? AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE?!

its a picture of a man sitting on a toilet seat on back of a pickup taking a dump and reading the paper. seems pretty obvious to me. and no im not a pastor. i think you meant require not acquire, but regardless, you're full of beans. your way of thinking is when a kid does something wrong, the most they will receive is a "talking to" and parents "looking into themselves". talk is good. and a good swat on the butt will do wonders. look at the shape of the country now because of all this "talk and looking into ourselves".

Lastword don't let LOL get to you. They're writing on forums while their kids are in the bedroom with the door shut and producing a bomb or taking X. All while in between the "eager to learn"
Soon as we gave out "911" for physical abuse the country went down hill. I am not that old but I know that was the worst thing to happen.

I TOTALLY agree!!! Why would ANY state have a "legal BAC" for minors?!?!?! And I personally think that her parents should get ripped just as bad as she SHOULD. Of course, the judicial system will probably let us all down on this one.

Alabama doesn't have a minor limit bc alcohol is prohibitted for sale to minors no exceptions. Unlike GA where minors can drink in their own home accompanied by adults .02 is the limit for underage drivers (under 21)???..and .08 is the limit for drivers over 21. Children copy everything parents do.. I am not against physicaldiscipline ,but all SOME parents have to do is raise their voice or just the presence alone can do wonders.

Unbelievable. 11 Years old. My kids don't even think about drinking. What a discrace. Its so unfortunate. Parents need to be completly accountable. On top of that. This little girl needs top punishment. Shameful!!!!!!!!!!

The article also said she was going to pick her sister up at a concert. So that means someone gave her the keys. WWOOWW now that is crazy.

its ok. everyone has their opinion. and physical disipline can get out of control sometimes. but that is wrong and not what i mean. i used to get beat with a belt and wooden paddles and such so i know it can go too far. but a swat on the butt, and, explaining why they got that swat, can no way be determined as abuse.(in my humble opinion anyway) moderation is the key. but like everything else (most) in this country, we go to excess.

Ok, let me help everyone out here since in a police officer. In Georgia at least, you have 3 seperate types of alcohol limits when driving. You first have 0.08. That is for individuals over the age of 21. You then have 0.04 limit. That is for Commercial drivers driving commercial vehicles. You then have 0.02. That limit is for people who are driving drunk and are UNDER the age of 21.

I hope this answers everyones questions.

The sad thing is she will probably grow up to be an alcoholic. I agree she needs a little behind action. I remember getting "swats" and I lived to tell about it. Now they call it capital punishment. It is ashame when parents can't reasonably discipline their children. For some reason a "time out" just doesn't do it in this case.

Well there definitely needs to be some investigation into their household to see why an 11 year old would be under the influence and have access to keys to the car, plus out that late at night. Obviously some help is needed in this home.
