    I wouldn't believe this sheriff if you paid me. He was embarrassed by the incident and upset and so has done everything he can to bring charges against these people. Until the family admits they did it on purpose I have no reason to believe this Sheriff.

    I feel sorry for those 3 kids, mom and dad teaching them that lying is ok to achieve their 15 (more) minutes of fame.


    Don't blame the 6 year old boy in any of this, he was just doing what was told by daddy and mommy. Poor little fellow.

    o lets not believe the police now...sgt to accept the police are right would make you wrong in your earlier thread of today...you know the one about how dare they charge these people for using 911 etc? you are certainly proof of that adage...a closed mind never changes....think about that the next time you are calling another poster a retard.
