This is how a life of crime may begin.
Two Long Island girls — ages 12 and 14 — smashed their way into the KB Department Store in New Cassel at 2:35 a.m. Sunday before making off with about $60 worth of merchandise, including a $5 stuffed teddy bear, police said.
Nassau County Detective Vincent Garcia called the girls’ take minimal, but their ages startling.
“It’s highly unusual to have two females aged 12 and 14 — especially at 2:30 in the morning — committing burglary,” he said.
The kids, not ID’d because of their ages, will be charged as minors with criminal mischief and third-degree burglary."

what can you say....2:30 in the morning, where were the parents/parent???
they should also be charged for child endangerment, especially not knowing where your children are.

You can't really hold the parents responsible. Look at the time; the whole family (mom, dad, kids, maybe even the dog) were probably at a nice backyard BBQ.
The kids, feeling rather energetic, probably just skipped off for a few minutes while everyone else were enjoying grilled meat and frosty beverages.
