    Lock up the parents for neglect. And any time their minor children commit a crime, lock up the parents along with their demon offspring. It seems this is the only way these garbage parents will understand, don't have kids if you aren't going to protect them and raise them properly. No pity for them or their thug kids who are raised like the garbage that they are, instead of being raised with responsibility,morals and values.Play stupid games,win stupid prizes.
