    Default 18yo escaped "barefoot bandit" thinks he's James Bond

    Apparently has an unusually high IQ, taught himself to fly by reading manuals, and has been suspected of stealing planes/boats/cars/etc. He hacked his Blackberry so that it's untraceable for when he calls home to his mom; authorities haven't been able to catch him.

    His mother said she doesn't see anything wrong with what he's suspected of doing.

    "I hope to hell he stole those airplanes I would be so proud," Pam Kohler told a reporter, noting her son's lack of training. "But put in there that I want him to wear a parachute next time."

    There's nothing worse than a mother who is proud that her son has completely misdirected his genius into something destructive instead of stopping to think that maybe she should (have) guide(d) him to focus that intelligence into, oh say, curing cancer.

    Lol.

    At least he's having fun I guess.

    EDIT: Actually since he crash landed and presumably damaged those airplanes, I retract my half-hearted approval.

    hmmmm...interesting. Stealing planes is risky. I would recommend he stay with boats.

    I have to completely disagree. No one here will probably agree with me, and honestly I have no real answers to back up my opinion. All i know is that I hate it when someone, no matter their age, goes out and commits some sort of crime and the parents are the first ones to give them up. 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?!

    Why? Because he STOLE then DAMAGED someone else's property. If he had purchased a plane and did whatever to it, then motherly pride would be appropriate.

    What's your address in Houston...I want to take your car/truck/moped for a joy ride with a bash-into-a-wall ending. I'll have my mom call you to tell you how proud she is of my driving and hot-wiring skills.

    How would that work out for you? Let's say....second weekend in November?

    I don't have children, but would give one up to the cops in a heartbeat if s/he were doing this shit. And I am not a big fan of the police.

    Yeah there is a chance he is going to get himself in a situation where its between him being hurt and someone else. I wonder how that would work out.

    It's all fun and games until it's your property or home that is broken into.

    And hopefully it will be him as the one being demoted from the gene pool.
