Parent's Focus+14-Year-old=DEATH.

Happened yesterday morning.....I saw some video. It was a Focus sedan, apparently stolen from the kid's parents for a joy-ride at high speed. Link

For God's sake......keep all your keys in an inaccessible place if you have moron kids in the house. Early morning, under-age driver, high-speed, no seat-belts.....the normal out-come is terrible.

That's unfortunate. A kid's simple mistake in pursuit of some thrill's cost him his life, and took the life of another person. Kid's these days just don't realize the value of life....

That's no simple mistake.....it was robbery, plain and simple, followed by a bunch of broken laws. The very last thing I would have done at age 14 was steal my father's car. If a car wreck hadn't killed me.....he would have.

Problem these days.....single parent (usually the mother) raising the kid, all too often. The kid can get away with murder. This time he didn't get away. Now I'm not sure if the father was absent in this incident, but it's obvious the kid was raised without any fear of consequences. Sad....

Whats really sad is if the little dumb asses had their seat belts on, they would have lived. The structure of the car is still intact. That would have been a survivable accident.

Agreed, I've seen people walk away from worse. When my sister was 15 or so, she stole my mother's Mustang, went joyriding and was doing fine until she went to turn in to the driveway, hit the gas instead of brakes, jumped a 6" wall for the garden and slammed in to the house, totaling the car....

not to laugh at the situation, just at you calling him emo lol. i totally agree with the age to legally drive bit. personally i think it should be 18. we should be like all of europe, you can drink at 16, but you cant drive until youre 18. their system is way more effective than ours could ever hope to be.

instead of reaching a certain age to get your license, I think you need to undergo a maturity test..... some people are about as dumb as kids like this (even if he stole it) except that it is their car. Cause we all know this......some people should NOT drive, no matter what age....

No all single parent homes are like this. I'm a single father and my son doesn't get away with much, granted he's only five but he for the most part respects me and listens quite well.

I agree with the comment on the way you raise your kids. It's not easy in this day and age to keep them on the right path. But, you can provide them with the right guidance to make sure they know how to get back on the path should they stray from it.

And hey, all people are different. I've seen 20 year olds less mature than some 14 year olds. It's a damn shame when someone loses their life in something like this though.
