A belligerent 15-year-old Bradenton boy received some adult education on what it means to be a criminal when he and his friends broke into a vehicle at the Autoway Ford dealership in the 5000 block of 14th Street West, Manatee County sheriff’s deputies say.
According to the report, the juveniles broke into the vehicle at 4:28 a.m. on July 25 and deputies made contact with the 15-year-old who was sitting in the front seat.
The 15-year-old was “adamant that he had every right to be at the dealership looking at cars, since he is allegedly in the market to buy a new car,” the report states, though the dealership was closed at that time of day.
The juvenile further stated that he knows the law and that he has, “right to be sitting in the car since he is thinking about buying it.”
His “knowledge” comes from basically trying to fulfill his wishes without any consideration for what the law actually says. It os not that he did not know breaking and entry is bad, it is that he mentally convinced himself to believe the law says what he wants it to say and that was his undoing.
Which brings me to a point I want to make: Many in the Gun community do the same thing: They interpret a law or regulation the way that makes them feel good and then get pissed when they are told they ar wrong. Of course, when they feel the cuffs around clicking round the wrists, they may begin to realize (too late) reality is a transgender bitch and it is about to rape you legally.
And the kid up there? He is more than likely get a slap on the wrist and send him home where he will start planning his next crime. while you will be enjoying a long sabbatical behind bars, wearing orange rompers and begging for Preparation H.
