EmporiaRocks says "Try her as an adult!"

I don't think that would be right in this case. The whole idea of trying a minor as an adult is to keep kids who commit serious crimes from getting out of jail when they turn 18. If she would have intentionally caused bodily harm to another person while committing a felony, that would be different. The truck she stole was more than likely her parents (I doubt a 13 year old could hotwire a car) and she ran because she was scared. This isn't serious enough to ruin the girls life over.

madpoet says "Why wasn't she in school?"

Who is at school at 11:15PM? Did someone forget to RTFA?

What type of individuals would raise a child, pay to send that child through school, and have that child grow up to become some irresponsible cop that would place our community asset (the cop car) in the path of another driver!!!! Should he have better grades, perhaps he would be on Oakland's police force.

At least it was a Coffey County car. The cops over there are on one hell of a power trip. They will stop you for no reason and try to intimidate you into letting them search your vehicle, and they get really asshurt when you tell them no.
