Kids These Days...

Well, Cassy certainly wins the crown for the dumbest kids these days, with the story of the two boys who tried to hold up a police station in Florida. (Bill, how did she get the jump on you for this one?) But I got a runner-up. Natch, he's from Massachusetts.

Maybe "dumb" isn't quite the term for my guy, though. "Precocious" might be a little fairer.

I mean, usually people wait until they're at least high-school-age before they get all liquored up and start tooling around in a stolen car. In Quincy, Massachusetts, this little daredevil was barely 13.

The boy in question is in custody, facing charges including resisting arrest, receiving stolen property, driving while under the influence of alcohol, impersonating a Kennedy, and leaving the scene of an accident

I'm trying to imagine what my parents would have done had I been caught at that age driving drunk in a stolen car. I think I'd have been begging for the cops to keep me locked up.

Jay,

I did briefly mention this here at Wizbang, but only today saw the video. So I did scoop Cassy after all. ;)

If the two youths were named, they would have earned my Knucklehead.

Cheers,

Bill

Not quite. Has to get off scot free and molest and kill someones daughter 1st.

youTube gets some great videos of dangerous stunts done by kids. There's these $3,000 49cc motor scooters called the CPI GTR 50, that look like a racing motorcycle. And with minor tuning mofifications these can easily go 60-73mph. Young guys all over the world love these bikes, and have videos on YouTube of doing handstands and wheelies and other dangerous and illegal driving on public highways and city streets on these bikes. This particular bike seems to attract the most radical of scooter fans. There's also a 150cc version that might be capable of 110mph with tuning. Doing wheelies at that speed would be flatout deadly.

The GTR bikes have a cult appeal to teenage and young 20's daredevils, who seem to crave attention on YouTube to post the most radical stunt they can think of, often on city streets.

Heh. In that position I would have been begging for the cops to keep me in protective custody.
