Just shaking head...

From the U.K.'s The Telegraph:

A 13-year-old boy has walked free from court after admitting smashing up a shop with a stolen golf club as his mother said the riots are because the government does "f*** all" for children.

The boy, who cannot be named because of his age, was one of the very few defendants to walk free from court, after receiving a nine month referral order for burglary and violent disorder.

His mother, sitting beside the boy's father, wiped tears from her eyes as the court was told she handed him in after seeing wanted photos of her son being circulated by Greater Manchester Police.
She is on benefits, does not live with the boy's father and has 10 other children, the court heard.

Emphasis and red type color mine.

OK, I confess I'm ignorant.  I confess I'm uneducated.  I confess I'm a right-wing Bible-thumping neanderthal and so couldn't possibly understand this,  BUT 1) HOW THE $#&* CAN PEOPLE KEEP SPOUTING THE "IT'S SOMEONE ELSE'S FAULT" DRIVEL !!!???? AND 2) HOW CAN PEOPLE NOT GET THE CONNECTION!!!!!????  WELFARE PROGRAMS MAKE IT EASY FOR BABY DADDY TO NOT BE THERE AND THEN KIDS GET IN TROUBLE!!!!

End of rant.


  1. How can they keep blaming everyone else? It's easy: that's what they were taught by the Progressive curriculum in school, and it's all they know.


  2. Rev got it... and they bear ZERO responsibility... sigh

  3. Let's face it. For the most part, these mothers are under/not-educated. Would you rather listen to someone tell you it's not your fault, here's some money...or go get a low-skill, low-pay job where you have to dedicate much of your waking life to someone's control who's not in much better shape than you - for an amount of money not much different than what someone wants to just give you?

    (Minimum wage at 40hr/week is $290.00/week - $15k/yr - minus the taxes. How much do all the benefits pay? Without having to "go to work"?)

    Why keep baby's daddy around? He gets in the way of the next guy coming down the road...and you sometimes get even MORE money for all them babies.

    I know there are exceptions. And I know there are cases more outrageous than this hypothetical one I suggest.

    Oh, well...I still get to keep about 1/2 of what I "make" ... so I'm going to work tomorrow.


  4. @Quizikle - I think those who drive me nuts on this issue is less the people like this mother (who at least hauled her son to the police when she saw his picture) than the educated and reasonably intelligent people who babble the same nonsense.
