FORT MYERS — Southwest Florida officials say a 17-year-old girl forced her mother at gunpoint to buy her a car.
According to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, the teen was charged with battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and unlawful possession of a firearm by a person younger than 18 years old. The teen is at a juvenile detention facility and is not being identified because of her age.
Authorities say the girl pointed a gun at her mother and pistol-whipped her.
The mother said she did not want to press charges because her daughter had been accepted to several Ivy League schools.
Authorities say the gun had been stolen from a Lee County Port Authority officer last year. The teen was not charged in that crime.
Wow! The youth of today. This is the entitlement mentality that the Left has poured into this generation of kids. Spoil your kids, give them what they want, don't even think about disciplining them or it will hinder their freedom of expression and stunt their growth, or whatever....
The mother in this article apparently has allowed her daughter to do as she pleased and gave her everything she wanted. And maybe, just maybe, she got tired of giving into a whining spoiled teenager and finally, said, "no." And look what happened.
Once those Ivy league schools get wind of this heinous little stunt, that teenager can forget about attending any one of them. She is a loose cannon.
Kids need discipline, they need and require guidance, and most importantly they must learn right from wrong. They need to know their actions have consequences. That young hooligan got away with a terrible crime.
God help us all.
