I was watching the show Juvies last night on MTV and got to tell you I was little shocked. I mean I know that there are kids out there that are lost and need help, but some of the little shitheads need more than a juvenile detention could give them.

There was this one kid, 16 years old, who was high as a kite and he turned in front of another lady and she hit the back of his SUV. When he came in for processing they allowed him to speak with his mother on speaker phone. The mother, as many would have done, started immediately crying and asking him what he was doing to himself. The kid started to laugh and said that he was done with the phone call. No response, no remorse, no I am sorry mom. I was shocked.

I know that each circumstance is different and I understand that there is sometimes angst between parents and children, but I don’t understand a kid laughing at his heart broken mother.

They then take the little snotrag to his cell and he proceeded to tell the camera crew that what really sucks about this situation is that it is a Friday night and he would much rather be at a party. And that it really really sucked that he didn’t have any weed or cigarettes.

Um okay….that is the worst. Forget the fact that you could have killed someone while you were out screwing around. Forget the fact that you could have killed the other kids in the car. Forget the fact that your mother is at home crying because she can’t figure out where she went wrong. Yeah forget all that……..

Fast forward hours later.

They show the kid in his cell, in nothing but his drawers, punching the hell out of his door. In his got damn drawers. WTF! He hits it so many times that he no doubt broke the hell out his hand. When his hand was no longer functional, he started to kick the door. They had to send in a big ass MF to come in and lock his butt down.

Fast forward to visitation.

Mom shows up and does the….everyone loves you and cares for you and you are not a bad kid bullshit. She tells him that he is going to be grounded when he gets out. He gets up, throws a tantrum, and says this place was making him crazy and that it wasn’t his fault. It was his friends fault, even though he was driving. He said he shouldn’t be there, it was his life and he can do what he wants.

Fast forward to meal time.

He tells his friends that his mother is the one that is messed up. That she should spend a night where he is and that he will talk her out of his grounding as soon as he gets home.

It is Juvie for crying out loud. Not jail or prison or any place where he has to worry about getting butt raped or the snot knocked out of him. Throw his ass in prison, let him run around hitting shit in his drawers. See if Bubba don’t find his ass.

I couldn’t help but shake my head at the blatant ignorance of this kid. I would never in a million years have ever behaved that way. Don’t get me wrong, I have done my share of ignorant childish things and have been arrested before, but I learned my lesson. I didn’t use the wake up call I was given, to further harm myself and the others around me.

I tell you what, if that was my kid……I would have called there asses up and told them to pull their damn belts off their pants and give him an ass whooping he would never forget. Give him something to fear….give him a reminder that he is a kid and his outrageous behaviors will not be tolerated.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not big on spanking. I just think that there are certain times when a child does need a spanking and talking is just not good enough. I got my ass whooped on many occasions and sometimes I didn’t think I deserved it, but in reality I did. I am proof that a good old ass whooping leaves an impression. I learned that I was not in control, that my parents were and when I messed up big time, I was going to have to suffer the consequences of my actions. I learned that every negative action has a punishment. I learned right from wrong. My kids have been spanked a time or two and now that if need be, they would get one today. I have no problems with them, outside of petty crap, and they are good kids.

I don’t know where I was going with this. I guess it makes me scared of what our society is coming to where my kids are concerned. I guess I am worried that those types of punks are going to be out there, on the road, in my child’s school, in my neighborhood, in my life and there is not a damn thing I can do about it. It bothers me that there are so many kids out there that are lost, whether it be by fault of their parents or not and there is nothing the rest of us can physically do about it. It is just too big of a task to take on and beat.

Maybe we need to start a group called “I am gonna whoop your child’s ass if you don’t”.

You think it will fly?? No??

How bout we start with these two…….
