Yes it is...my son was left in a car when he was four...knocked the car out of gear and bailed out of the front window. The car ran over his head.

So that explains what's wrong with him.

No... if it's the son I am aware of, he's a lying, trouble-making little thief! He's the jerk!

It's not the kids fault who his mom is. You should really feel sorry for him.

Actually I am just kidding--I think Columbia MO's posts are insulting and horrible!!!! But just read all the other posts about the officers on the other site. Uneducated and narrow-minded. Doesn't reflect well on Creston.

Are you 14? Because he is. You really do not know much about teenage kids...do you have any of your own? I hope you teach them better than you have been taught.

Just to inform all of you who assume that the place listed below the poster's name isn't always accurate. I am from Creston and as mentioned before I work full-time, I have all my teeth, I am not wearing my shoes at the moment because I am in my home and my husband isn't even a cousin of anyone I know. But I am really glad that everyone's comments are more focused on trashing others because you have nothing better to say about the forum topic. Thanks for your input.

If you are from Creston, as you claim, you know that I wasn't commenting on you.

I was trashing an idiot who was trashing a 14 kid.

So since I was commenting to someone else, not you, you need to shut the pie hole.

i thought this was about some lady that let her niece drive her car when she was "wasted" why on earth are we pickin some kid? If he has problems-maybe he is getting help, i don't know--but how would you like it if they said crappy things about your kids? i know i'd want to slap them upside the head and see if i could knock some sense into them!!!!!!!!!!couldn't say what i really wanted to)
Maybe some of you that are so "good" could volunteer to mentor this kid if you think he's such a jerk. otherwise just chill

Thank you! All I was doing was making a comparison to under-age children and vehicles. I did not want my son the target of a COWARD! By the way he is doing fine. Thanks for the support...especially from Space Cowboy! This person sounds like they know what they are talking about. It is a shame that this 12 year old has all of this not only on her record, but on her conscience as well.
