Waste of taxpayers Money. Let him spend a couple nights out on his own, see how smart he thinks he is. Get a job.

How can someone possibly refer to a young boy as a 'waste of taxpayer money,' especially without knowing the circumstances here? Is this how far we've lowered ourselves as a society? That young human lives are judged according to their utility to the 'taxpayer?'

I'm glad the kid is safe. And if this is a case of a young man needing to mature I hope it happens. I give him a better chance of behaving like an adult some day than many of the jaded, self-loathing simpletons who populate this site.

i don't believe take meant the boy was a waste of taxpayer money, i think he was referring to the police man hours wasted looking for this lil pissant while he was out having a good ole time. if the child were mine he would be doing community hours til the money was paid back.
