12-year-old boy steals school bus ... again

Twelve Year Old Steals School Bus... Again

A twelve-year-old Florida boy is accused of stealing a school bus... again.

According to Franklin County police, middle school student Michael Propst was arrested Wednesday after taking a school bus for a joyride, and apparently this is the second time the tween has pulled the stunt in under a month.

Propst allegedly stole his parents car late Tuesday night, but then ditched it when he saw a school bus sitting at an elementary school. But that ride came to a halt when he was pulled over by police. He was charged with trespassing on school property, grand theft auto, and burglary of conveyance.

On June 24th, he was arrested after driving a school bus 15 miles to a Walmart. For that crime he was charged with grand theft of an item worth more than $100,000, and felony criminal mischief.

Police told the Huffington Post that he being charged as a minor but the city attorney has the option of charging him as an adult.

As crazy as this sounds, stealing buses and taking them for a spin happens more than you might think. Just last month, a 20-year-old Staten Island man stole a MTA bus from the ferry terminal. And New Yorker Darius McCollum became something of an urban cult figure after being arrested nearly 30 times for stealing MTA buses, subway trains, and impersonating transit workers.

These people know they can just apply to be bus drivers, right?

I know it's insanely "politically incorrect", but there's an easy recipe for avoiding a recurrence of this behavior:

Start with one 12 year old boy (preferably without pants), one adult male (with strong arms and a large lap) and one lightweight paddle. Combine all ingredients and let nature take it's course!

This is part of President Obama's new improved "No Child Leftwing Behind" program. Kid gets left behind he can steal a bus and catch up.

seriously? The kid needs to be in jail. Two times in a month means he feels no remorse.

Well while we are at it jk, why don't we blame the grandparents and great grandparents and on and on and on. Let's go back to their distant ancestors and blame them! Most parents know you can raise 2 or more children in the world, but there is no guarantee environment rules over genetics.

That's the problem. Parents aren't "allowed" to discipline their kids. And the kids know it, so now they run the household. I would kick ass if I had kids, and if they threatened to call the cops, I would hand them the phone and pack their bags, as well, since they would be removed from the home. "Go live in Foster care...see how that works out for ya...ungrateful brat".
