I don’t think the crime that kid committed should go without punishment, but “affluenza” (a/k/a bad, irresponsible parenting in which mom and dad never said “no”) is more legitimate than people want to or are willing to believe. If one is conditioned from birth that he will never be without what he or she wants, that all they have to do is lift a finger and they get it, if they are never punished when they fuck up, there’s a good chance that baby is going to grow into a kid into a teenager into an adult, and nothing will change. Not a thing. There are people in their 50s who don’t want or expect consequence when they do something. As a result, they become reckless, testing boundaries until none exist to them.
It’s obvious, isn’t it? Never restrict your kid, never set a boundary, and he or she is going to act in accordance to that. And it’s absolutely on the parent to instill those morals in their child, those rights and wrongs, not letting them own the world, because the world isn’t even close to being theirs. Parents should be locked up, kid should be given some good parents, though it’s likely too late. That’s terrible. This whole thing is terrible, honestly, but I think people need to stop instantly crapping all over something without giving it a second thought.
