Here's the story. A 14 year old kid sicks his pitbull on two teenage girls (the news report on KTVU 2 News didn't specify their ages). Instead of filing charges against the parents of the CHILD (14 years old is still a child!), they've arrested and filed charges against the CHILD himself. How, exactly, is a 14 year old child responsible for their actions? I mean, I know that a child of that age is capable for independent thought. HOWEVER!!! He is still a child. His parents are ultimately responsible for the behavior of him, AND HIS DOG!!!
If you need more explanation of this concept you should go read someone else's blog!!!
On second thought, nevermind. They don't seem to think you are smart enough to take responsibility for your children.
