I must agree with GSXR Chick in some ways, and as I stated in my earlier comments we all made stupid decisions when we were younger "Showing Off". The fact remains that this little girl "AKA REMINDER" 8 and 9 years old, are not to be held to the same levels of cognitive thinking as say maybe a 15 year old, who prior to the incident even occuring should have been aware that laws were being boken just by being behind the wheel of a running vehicle. I apologize if the 15 yr. old is thinking impared and again I say "Where the HEL* were his parents?" The rest of his life in prison "NO" but severly punished, absolutly. We can not allow our politions and judicial representatives to go on anymore allowing our future "Minor Adoloesence" to think they are above the law! He sould spend a few years thinking about how cool he was when he chose to drive away from his mistakes, and that while we all expierence fear, running is the wrong answer. Now personally to those whom have made such horrific commets based on the race of these childen- "YOU SHOULD BE CRUSIFIED"
OMG ORO GRANDE??? I went to highschool in Victorville!

REALITY CHECK!!!!

Most people in society today could care less if they are breaking the law, both kids and adults, until they get caught. Once caught, they find every way imaginable to get out of paying for their actions, including using the "age" card.

Parents want their kids to grow up and take on adult responsibilities at an earlier and earlier age and claim they are "young adults". But when they commit a crime or pull a stupid stunt like this kid did the parents use the "age" card to keep them from paying for their mistakes and claim they are too young to know better. You can't have it both ways. Either raise the limit for kids to get licenses (which this one didn't have anyway) or start making them pay adult prices for their mistakes. Adult privileges without adult punishment equals out of control kids.

I'm guessing no one did anything stupid when anyone of you were 15?? I'm also guessing everyone listened to their parents ALL the time??? Well, I sure didnt. 15 year olds do stupid things all the time. They don't always listen to the parents. No one here knows the whole truth to this story. People judge too easily these days. People who are saying this and that...if you have kid(s), take care and worry about your own kid(s). They are probably causing more trouble, that you don't even know about!

Deport his "parents", try him as an adult, then execute him. Problem solved.

<quoted text>Yeah that makes sense like another hole in my a$$. Well maybe next time this idiot decides to disregard the law you or someone in your family will get killed. Maybe we should send a message to teens, act stupid go to jail for life!!!! Not oh i'm only 15 i won't get into much trouble. Pleaz
You were young and dumb once and may still be dumb based on the way you talk but I am hoping this kid doesn't get life for this. In 15 years he should get another start in life. The treatment he will get in prison will be punishment enough.

I hope he is charged as an adult and serves some serious time in jail. I'm wondering if he is an illegal alien as it was reported in another news story that the scum's father was in court listening with an interpreter and told the judge his son was a good child and this could happen to anyone. Some more of those good family morals passed down to the anchor baby perhaps.

My brother was killed in a car accident when he was 16. The driver of the car he was in was only 16 as well. They were goofing off and sped through a red light, hitting another car. My brother was the only fatality and the rest only suffered minor injuries.
The driver was sentenced as a juvenile and fulfilled his sentence earning him a clean record when he turned 18.
He would go on to dedicate his life to public service and helping others. He maintained a relationship with my mother and sent flowers when she passed away. He often said that without her forgiveness, he would never have been able to rebuild his life. He paid for his adolescent bad judgement his entire life.
He passed away a few years back and, up to the end, insisted that his only regret about his life was the car accident that killed his best friend.
Did no one on these pages ever do something stupid when they were a teen? Maybe nothing bad happened and no one was injured, but are you certain that you've never made one singe, solitary mistake that could have caused injury to someone else?
Would you advocate the same punishments if this kid was your son?
Some people aren't as willing to forgive as your Mother was. This is a great story and a wonderful turnout for a horrible situation, but it takes two to make that work. This gentleman was fortunate.
