Good News =Bad News


Well first the good news I have some of my stuff back from the robbery. The cops have arrested a 16 year old boy for the robbery. Which leads me to the bad news......... this Little punk is my youngest son's best friend! I know that I am jumping to an assumed conclusion here but if it looks like a duck..... The punk is not ratting out his accomplices as of yet, but for him to drive from Ray-town to Savannah and hit my house at random is just to big of a leap. The cops found some of my stuff stored at his grandfathers house including the blower assembly and hood to my GTO. The Gto was stripped and sold as parts and what couldn't be sold was sent to a crusher My ol ford pickup was under a tarp in the back of the garage. They sold my guns,and I have to wonder how 16 year olds managed that. The worst part is I know my son was involved. I do not understand why he would do this.

wow, my thoughts are with you on this one. a tough spot to be in to put it very mildly. and i know how much it hurts when your kids let you down like this. and yet, we love them. i second saint, sometimes kids, especially teenagers just don't realize the hurt they do. keep us posted on this, i am anxious to see that all is resolved. and again, i feel for you.

I have to agree with Saint and Speach. I will be a tough discussion you will have to have with your son. Telling him how all this makes you feel and still trying to see it from his side. Kids today have a HUGE amount of pressure on them. This is no excuse, but I think is has to be difficult. Good luck with your son, best wishes.

Jeez! Micah . . . Sounds like more bad news than good. The worst is that you think your son was involved. Is he estranged from you since your divorce from his mother? I know you're glad to be able to put this to rest . . . but I'm not sure how I would feel if I were in your shoes. I hope you are able to eventually work through it with him.

BTW, there is no way that ONLY a couple of 16 year olds pulled this off, is there? Who are the adults they associate with? I bet you'll find another guilty party somewhere.

Sorry about that car too . . . but that now seems paled by what you have discovered.

Take care.

Micah I am so sorry...I am having problems with my youngest son. I know the possessions are valuable and important but maybe from the sounds of it...this is a blessing in disguise to help wake up all cncerned to whats going on with your son. I have something very similar that has scared us all to our bones. Deep hugs and praying all turns out well. {=}

holy shit thats crazy man!!!!

I dont know, maybe your son is in a bad way right now. I stole some loot off of my rents one time, just once. They caught me and gave me the boot for a while. I ended up getting into worse shit out on my own. Now that doesnt excuse what I did at all, or their reaction to it. But in the end, they figured that it was better to help me than to brush me under the rug. And Im to this day so fucking thankful for that, it really turned shit around.

They stripped your fucking car??!!!!! Wow, that's just...wow....

Thank you. The hurt is more for my son at this point than for my loss. I know that we raised him differently than this. His mom is taking this as a personal blow against herself and her values, me? I just don't know WTF to think.

Thank you. The police picked up my son today and they have put him in jail. He actually called me to see if I would bail him out as his mom has refused. It was probably the hardest moment in my life when I told him I would not post his bail. Sigh I hope I chose the right way to handel this it surely sucked having to do it that way.

I think my son started hanging with the wrong people shortly after I moved out. He has acted the same around me when we visit but doesn't want to let me in on who he hangs with and what he has been doing. I went through similar stuff with his older brother so thought it might have been the normal teenager stuff. Now it appears I was sadly mistaken.

Your right that 2 teenage boys could not have done this by themselves other than the damage to my house it was way to slick. Both boys have clammed up but the cops suspect the one boys older brother of being involved as he has been in prison for auto theft.

As far as the Goat goes well........ I will miss her but am more concerned for my boy right now.

    omg you were robbed...poor you... I am sorry that this has happened to you...must be awful t have your possessions stolen, especially if they have sentimental value..which is often the case no value to another yet priceless to someone, I know this doesnt help much..but remember they are kids, and God willing will grow and learn, they do not know the hurt they cause,one day they will look back and realize....x
I hope and pray this will be so

    The one bright side of it Micah and Lord there are few is they only SOLD the guns. Matters could have got a whole lot worse. My thoughts are with you.
Thanks Dusty I had not thought of that bright point. Truly they could have gotten much worse

Yes it is. If he wasn't in a bad way he sure as shit is now. This is not something that I can cause to go away. The police are involved and so is the district attorney. It is now out of my hands!! Hopefully he will learn from this and not make it a lifestyle.

They not only stripped her they sent her shell to the crusher the cops have matched her Vin Number which was stamped on the frame to a squished hunk of metal

I have done simialar to those I love, and to this day I feel the most remorse I possibly can, for the fact I let, the people who loved me, down. I am sorry for what happened, but it may be a cry for help. looking back on everything I did that is just what it was. Hope things get sorted for you and yours. Sending prayers your way

Damn. That hurts, brother.
I just found out that my grand daughter has been up to mischief, and I was a criminal when young and drunk.
As much as it hurts to hear, a little jail time did much to change my outlook on things. I first found God while there.
All will be well, friend. Maybe not for a while, but eventually.
Prayers sent.

Thinking back on it I was a trouble maker when I was younger I just did not get caught. Welllll at least not by the cops I started boxing when I broke into a neighbors garage to swipe some gas for my motorbike and he caught me his solution was to have me spar with his son that summer three days a week or he would call the cops. I got scared straight and learned a lot that summer so maybe this is the wake up call my son needs.

You are a good man...and you will get through this. It's so hard when kids need "tough love"..but, trust me, you did him a favor by making him face the consequences of his actions. ((((((BIG HUG)))))) My thought are with you...

P.S. If you need a gun..i have an EXCELLENT super-soaker that you can have!
