    Our society is doomed. Doomed I tells you.

    Police: 14-year-old steals car, crashes on Parkway after leading officers on chase

    "My son was wrong for taking that vehicle but someone jumped out of their car and a 14-year-old seen the opportunity to take the car. He didn't break the car to steal it. They left the keys in the car. I think as an adult we have some type of ownership to being responsible for our vehicles," the boy's mother said.

    Troopers said the chase was called off before the teen flipped the jeep on the Parkway East. The boy's mother said she doesn't think police should have followed her son.

    "He had to no right to chase my son. It could have been a situation where maybe it was just a joyride down the street. Maybe he wanted to go further than he felt like walking," she said.

    The teen was taken to UPMC Mercy Hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

    I wonder if she can be arrested for child endangerment. She's clearly not fit to be a parent.

    Penn Hills, PA:lmao: I grew up near there, about 30 minutes away. That place was going downhill 20 years ago.

    A mother who can't speak with proper grammar and doesn't even know right from wrong. A father , I'm guessing (didn't watch the clip), nowhere to be found. With that environment, I just don't undrstand how a nice 14 year-old boy steals and wrecks a car.:rolleyes:

    But, hey, let's sue the owner of the car for negligence and the police for harassment. Only logical conclusion.:)

    Obviously, the owner is not to blame for what the kid did, but she was definitely dumb for leaving her keys in an unlocked car. I bet her insurance won't cover her and apparently you can get fined for leaving your keys in the ignition in an unattended vehicle.

    Well there is a good reason cops don't just chase every criminal suspect around town like it's a movie. It greatly increases the danger. Not that the kid shouldn't get in trouble.

    Unfortunately too many parents have this attitude. The car owners fault? Cops should not pursue car thieves? Insanity. Lock both of them up because they are to stupid to be allowed to be on their own. No mention of the father....I wonder why?

    LOL!!!!

    Thats seriously one of the funniest defenses I've ever seen by someone who doesn't want to blame their child for being a thief.

    Hilarious.

    She better not leave her car or home unlocked and get robbed. But then if that happened, I'm sure she'll change her tune.

    I am guessing you mean you cannot start it up and leave it running unattended?

    Not surprised some stupid idiot in government decided that

    I read that article twice and I still don't believe it. This has to be a gag, right? Has to be.

    Any reputable insurance company should cover it. An owner of a car is under no obligation to secure their keys. If they are left in the car, they are considered private property and as such, covered. I don't know if this varies state to state but it may I suppose. That's how it is in this state.
