How dumb can they be.

I still think its horrible that the parents are never held responsible for the crimes that their kids do.

Dane Cook special on HBO was rated R. Not intended for teenagers.

Wow!
Somebody actually watched the Dane Cook special??

The only person who thinks Dane Cook is funny is Dane Cook.

Not to mention, it's widely known within the Comedian circles that Cook is a scum bag.

Now if only someone would throw rocks at Dane Cook's head and bash it in like those mailboxes, it'd be a wonderful world.

Granted they were stupid but JAIL TIME, come on. I'm no bleeding heart but is this really the perfect solution; now with a record they can learn from real criminals instead of straightening out and going to college, learning a trade, etc.

So if there is no consequences for their actions, what stops other people from doing the same?

OMG How stupid can people get? Is no one accountable for their own actions anymore? Have we really stuped so low to blame the stuff we do on other things? I watched his comedy show too & not once did I ever think about breaking & entering someone's house. My friend Chris made this vid on how these teens from Long Island, NY blamed Grand Theft Auto on them vandalizing the city.

Something else I forgot: The dumbest thing of all is the lawyer saying that they'd accepted responsibility for their crimes! If that were really true, then why are they blaming what they did on a joke they & millions of other people heard. I haven't heard other kids blaming him for this kind of crime. Gimme a break!

I'm really surprised they didn't blame it on the show It Takes a Thief on The Discovery Channel. They actually show you how to break into houses.

Guess they didn't hear the B&E JAILBIRD Joke... Hope many big men have their way with these dopes... Now THAT should be hysterical! Quite disturbing that they should blame some no talent - for their own stupidity. Once again, nice to see responsible parents "on top of things"
