Police say teen forced mom to buy her a car at gunpoint

The Associated Press
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.

Better late than ever, but at least her mother was willing to say no to her daughter and charges were pressed against the daughter. Who knows maybe this will send a much needed and overdue message to the teen?

"The mother said she did not want to press charges because her daughter had been accepted to several Ivy League schools."

That's probably part of the reason right there, the mother has been letting her get away with things, without consequences.

Or, perhaps I'm wrong and this is the first time the 17 year old has acted out? I say let the cops prosecute and teach her a lesson.

Teresa, maybe it is time stop protecting these kids identities and let them suffer the consequences.

Debbie, I believe this girl did not get her way and she snapped.

Thanks to morons like Dr. Benjamin Spock and other self-styled child rearing experts, our chickens are coming home to roost.

This is the result of "time outs" instead of a good old fashioned butt whooping.

I love it! This stupid mother bore the brunt of her crappy parenting. Usually is spills over on responsible society.

Leticia said...

Abouna, a spanking has never killed a kid and it never will. I am all for spanking.

Angel, pretty pathetic, huh?

Silver, that's very true. And still the mother cowers to her kid. What the heck?

cube said...

This one just makes me shake my head. How can a parent let a situation with their child go so bad for so long? And where is the father?

BTW, I'll believe that this brat got accepted to several Ivy league schools when I see proof. She sounds like an idiot to me. Oh wait, Ivy league schools accepted Obama... nevermind.

The mother said she did not want to press charges because her daughter had been accepted to several Ivy League schools.

And what will this girl do when a professor gives her a grade she doesn't like or when there's a conflict with another student? Pull out a gun a make threats?

Karen Howes said...

Yup, I think the fact that mommy didn't want to press charges id's the root of the problem right there.

It is becoming the American way, especially among youth.

I live in the county where this took place. In fact, I live int he "crime capital" of our county.

One can see a young person with a gun almost every day, if one is paying attention.

It is unbelievable.

The Left have destroyed everything to do with justice and punishment.

Leticia said...

Cube, yeah, if an ivy league school to Obummer it will take anyone.

AOW, that's what's so scary and for the mother not to press charges? She is just adding more to this kid's resume of terror.

Karen, most of the time it falls on bad parenting and enabling the kid. At least, she is juvenile hall. Jail would be better, but then she would be on Facebook all day long bragging to her friends.

Joe, that's frightening.

Patrick, and in the long run the elderly will pay the price, or parents in this case. That mother should have disciplined her little monster.

"The mother said she did not want to press charges because her daughter had been accepted to several Ivy League schools."

Looks like that there is the start of the problem, with that sort of doormat attitude, no wonder the ratbag did that to her mother.

"Once those Ivy league schools get wind of this heinous little stunt, that teenager can forget about attending any one of them."

Don't be surprised if they reward such scumbaggery. Think about it, swap 'mother' for Bush, Conservative, Christian or Republican and isn't this the behavior of most of the more violent liberals.

Leticia said...

MK, I hope not. But you just might be right.

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

First, the child needs to be 1. slapped and then 2. prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

After that, the mother needs to be BEATEN for REARING a piece of crap like her daughter. It was the MOTHER who CRAFTED that thing. And/or course the father if he's even in the picture.

BZ, if that girl had gotten proper discipline to begin with that mother would not have found herself in that position. Agreed.
