to try and break me. difficult child I (turns 17 next week) is at the police station being charged with breaking and entering and burgalry. He cut school yesterday and broke into some kid's house and stole a PS3 and went to a neighboring town last night to try to sell it and the buyer pulled up and yanked it out of his hands and drove away. Now honest opinions. difficult child I told me all of this after much prying and me promising not to tell anyone. I did not tell anyone, but the kid did not make me promise not to punish him. So I pulled into the police station parking lot (we were in the car when he told me) he flipped out and started cursing at me, saying I broke my promise. At this point I gave him two choices 1: he could go in and tell them what he did OR 2: he could come home and be on house arrest indefinatley and he would have to go to talk to his counselor about what had happened. He opted for neithr and proceeded to verbally bash me. I roll down the window and ask an officer walking by for assistance. We go in the station difficult child I tells the officer I am crazy and under stress due to difficult child II's recent hospitilization. He then asks (the police officer) matter of factly "has anything been reported stolen?" (there does not seem to be an avatar for "stupid") I add "like a PS3?" Shocker someone did report one stolen and the police had already been at my house to ? difficult child I because he was the prime suspect and he left a big fat finger print there! He is not on drugs either, I've checked! So am I a snitch? he says so. I am so freakin fried. I told them I do not want him home, they can figure out somewhere else to put him! He has his 1st strike last year and got a slap on the wrist, now he's really done it and I am not inclinced to feel sorry for him.
