Teens Drug Parents To Get Web Access 505

linuxwrangler writes "Two teens are behind bars after hatching a plan that involved drugging milkshakes they gave to the parents of one of the kids. The parents were suspicious after waking groggy the next day, and used a home drug-test on one of the remaining drinks. The teens came up with the plan in order to avoid their 10pm Internet curfew."

    They fell asleep and were groggy the next day from 1/4 of the milkshake. Suppose they'd drunk the whole thing.

    I am not a doctor, but all medications come in varying dosages. We don't exactly know the whole story here, so stop making assumptions.

    If I were the parents, I wouldn't have had my own children arrested, or put them in a position to be arrested. I would have handled the situation privately and discretely, disciplining as necessary. Even a misdemeanor fucks up your future these days, I had parents that understood this when I did dumb things growing up. You're a fool if you think even the juvenile system in this country is capable of any sort of rehabilitation, and certainly is capable of much less than that available from a couple of loving parents.

    The parents were being vindictive, that's the only explanation. Or they're downright retarded and should be arrested for child endangerment.

    My bet here is that something was seriously wrong in this household, and the teen was acting out in the only way she knew how.

    Ah, had to RTFA and watch the damn video... but apparently it was a drug test kit from the police station.

    But, you apparently still think that the kids should've been arrested / permanently condemned for this?

    Fuck yea. This is not bad behavior - this is sociopathic behavior. Anyway they will be punished as a juvenile so the consequences aren't as permanent as you are trying to make it out to be. Certainly not as permanent as allowing this sociopathic behavior to get worse.

    What if the parents did nothing and a couple of years later their or their neighbor's kid does something that kills or seriously injures someone? If you found out that the parents allowed this action to go unchecked/unreported then you would be screaming about how irresponsible the parents were and how they should be held accountable for their child's actions.

    The parents did good. They were being parents. Being a parent is not always trying to be your child's best friend - it's doing what is best for your child regardless how unpopular it makes you feel.

    I'm guessing video games will get blamed for this.

    Of course. That and milk.

    You mean milk-plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what they were drinking? This would dull them down and get you ready for a bit of the old Facebook.

Thufir's a Harkonnen now.
