All day yesterday and last night I had a niggling thought that Cory was probably arrested, and I wasnt far wrong, but he was only picked up on traffic tickets...again. I so dont understand the cops in this town. He was out all darn day doing god knows what and came home around 2 am and went through a road block. They got him for driving his car with no license, no insurance, false tags and no registration. All they did was give him tickets and made him park his car on the side of the road and walk home! Hello!!! He went back and got the stupid car this morning! DUH. In most states he would be rotting in jail. He does have a court date for these tickets in July which I expect they will fry him...but with his luck who knows. However...a little bit ago his cousins came roaring up to the house banging on the door looking for him. Actually they are his fathers half cousins I think but you get the idea...relatives. Seems that these guys who have been the boys (they are Corys and Jamies ages) friends for years happened to pass Cory on the way to the recycling center this morning. This is a big junkyard type place you go to sell metal for cash. Well these boys happened to see Corys car loaded down with metal poles and aluminum and tin siding on the way to the center. They had just gone to buy some more poles to put up some chicken pens. They get back to their house and find that Cory had stolen all that stuff in his car from THEM! They were devastated. He had stolen from them before when he was a young teen and wasnt allowed back to their house for years but slowly started being allowed back there and their mom and dad had been so good to him lately. Fed him and all...now this. I told them to call the law and press charges. I told them that we would not be mad or upset with them in anyway. I know it is a completely foreign concept for most families to call the law on a family member but in this case its the right thing to do. The recycling center will have Corys ID and tag number from selling it. Its an open and shut case. I also know the first thing they wanted to do was beat the crap out of him but if Cory got hurt enough to go to the hospital then the hospital is mandated reporters and I wouldnt want those boys to get into any trouble over something Cory did. That wouldnt be right. Cory needs to pay for this...no one else. Its much better for the cops to be involved and Cory to have more charges pressed against him. Ok...that would make...11 charges that were already pending...4 from last nite...maybe only 3...then at least 2 from today. what does that make...16 at least? And that doesnt count the charges that he has already been convicted on. Is it a record to have 20 or so charges before you are 21? Well I guess not. But sheesh. Glad it isnt me, they dont make enough xanax to calm my nerves. Of course, I wouldnt do this to myself.
