Our society is doomed. Doomed I tells you. http://www.wpxi.com/news/news/local/police-14-year-old-steals-car-leads-officers-chase/nQ9QH/ 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.
