Why was this kid out in the middle of the night? Where are his parent's? Obviously no supervision.

Well, at least he was caught. Hopefully this helps curb the excessive amount of crime happening lately.

dr - No supervision and absolutely no understanding of right or wrong. A career criminal in the making. normalicy - Yes he was caught. Our justice system will see to it that he's back on the street within hours. No curb factor here. Imagine if you will the frustration's our police departments must feel.
