LOL he was 12 years old. LOL omg. all he needed was a good slap, like those puerto rican families mentioned above, taken the ds and hit him with it and then take it away from him. Now that's punishment. Arrest the kid if he was 15 but 12 is a little young. lol, geez the mother is 27 and she just called the police, parents are so easily willing to give up their children. Once it was believed that the child was a sacred thing, the mother and child unity. damn people, gotta get your priorities straight. Thats my 2 cents anyway. peace.
