It seems a disproportionate amount of my Stupid Alerts are about Americans. And the next in the series doesn’t buck the trend: a South Carolina mother has had her 12-year-old son arrested for opening his Christmas presents early.
It seems people are now too stupid to parent their own children, and so now farm that responsibility off to the police or blame anyone/thing else rather than themselves. Fucking pathetic. (Via GeoffBrady on IM).
