    What's wrong with stealing airplanes? It's not as if it's potentially destructive... Oh wait!

Thats just BS IMO, they should be the first ones to back up their children.

    Understandably their are some crimes that are outside of this opinion and no matter who you are you deserve justice. But the kid pretty much just took a joy ride, as far as i can tell didnt hurt anyone and escaped. Why should the mother not be proud, no really, why?!
    He didn't just take a joy ride. He's a theif. He's like a master at breaking and entering. He's "joy riding" on multiple planes, boats, etc. He has a long string of sociopathic behavior.

    I've known a mother like that, and her sociopathic son. In my experience, in cases such as these, it is the parents who made them that way. At least she admits it instead of trying to deny it, no BS about "I don't know what happened, I did the best I could," I'll give her credit for that...her unflinching honesty.

    Oh yeah, and apparently it never occured to you that he could kill someone (or himself) with his "joy riding." Destroying someone else's property at the age of 18 is not something that any mother should be proud of.

    Parents have a responsibility to give up their adult children when they've committed serious crimes. Otherwise they're as good as criminals themselves.

    I'm sorry to say, but as long as he doesn't hurt anybody doing this, the coolness factor is totally outweighing the criminality of it.

    Are you serious? There's plenty of people who do just that.

    I think the kid definitely has potential. Seems like he's just a little(I mean a lot) misguided.

    I have to say, I find it mildly amusing that the authorities are so incompetent. But I still think he needs to go to jail. He's caused a lot of property damage and put lives at risk. What's more, he did break the law, and not even for a good reason. If it had been some kind of Robin Hood thing, I might have been more sympathetic.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the mother's refusal to testify against her own son. I think it's technically the wrong thing to do, but somewhat understandable given how strong the mother-child bond is on an emotional level. It's probably creating a degree of legally defensible irrationality and insanity regarding her son, IMO, if they're going to try her for being an accessory. There's a reason the term "a face only a mother could love," came about.

    In summary, the kid needs to be incarcerated yesterday, and the mom should be pitied for her mental problems.

    Yeah, like me!

    My mother never had to worry about me getting in trouble... in fact, I was the one that whined at her every time she went a little over the speed limit, or stood up to someone rather than avoid making a scene.

    I prefer people who are a little bit crazy than those who are docile.

    What's funnier is that he's 6'5", it's not like he can easily hide in a crowd.

    Actually, I'm located on MY hard disk.

    As often as you visit this site, though, there's a possibility that there might be a few copies of me on yours. I'm like Agent Smith, "there are so many of me!"
