want the problems to stop? Its easy: make the parent MONETARILY responsible for these cancerous scum thugs in training... if they have to pay, you better believe they will make sure thier "offspring" will stay in line a whole lot more. I say any violation an under 18 kid does, the parent is fined and that money is taken immediately from thier welfare checks. Problem ends.
