Quantcast

What would you do if you saw your neighbor's kid shooting a bb gun or throwing rocks at the neighborhood cat? Would you tell the parents?

Tell the parents
Let the kid shoot away

On Kevin & Bean on KROQ (LA based morning radio show), Bean told a story about one day when he was out on his lawn when a neighbor's kid started shooting at a cat with a bb gun. When Bean asked the kid to stop it, he kid complied and put away the bb gun. But a couple minutes later, the kid came back and started throwing rocks at the cat.

The dilemma Bean was having was whether or not he should tell the parents. Should he?

    I'm with Magzilla-I'd be yelling, too. If he tried to leave, I'd snatch him by the ear (not really-well maybe :) do that Spock squeeze on the shoulder-highly effective and doesn't hurt the child.

    I don't like cats, so compared to what we did to cats growing up, shoting it with a bb gun, i guess makes for good target preactice for bigger game.

    You know yaw can give me the thumbs down all you want, that does not bother me, at least I express my self, and respect myself, And as for what I did when I was a child, like I said is not relevant to what kids are doing today. At least in my day, kids did not carry guns to school and kill everybody, and we did not do half the stupid shit kids do today, cause we knew if we did do something wrong, when we got home, we did not geta apat on the head, and say o, you know you should not do that, we got our buts beat, so yaw go ahead and give me a thumbs down, and when you have to go get your child out of jail for killing a human being, instead of shoting a cat with a bb gun, cause all that bb gun is going to do is sting that butt, do not get on here and start some poll, did I raise my child right. Cause you are going to get replies like mine and a few others that are going to piss you off.

    Compared to what you did to cats growing up? Sounds unintelligent. I'm sure somebody's got a spare bullet for you.

    No I would just rather carin on an intelligent conversation, as as for what I di 40 plus years a go, is not revelant to what thes kids are doing today, all I said, was the parents probly already know what the kid is doing, since they bought hiom the stupid gun. So Please try to have a good day.

    i agree what u r saying about the parents who bought the gun,but the neighbor's should tell the parents about the kid and one of my friends friend cat got shot with an air rifle and its dead.Caused of the the brain damage it had took when the cat got shot.now my friend found out who it was and beaten the crap out of him but he was around 22 so he deserved it !!!

    spank the kid and tell him he can poke an eye out! hopefully his own and not the cats

    In this day and age, spanking a kid that's not your own would just land you in jail.

    IMO it would be wiser to contact the police and the parents.

    Not only tell the brainless parents who raised these "winners" but I would also find them, hopefully in a dark alley and shoved the bb gun up to where the sun never shines.

    I would tell the parents right after I escorted his happy self to their home and presented him in person. A warning to those who have not done this before, I have been the subjet of much verbal abuse from such a child and then his or her parents for bringing the miscreant home and pointing out their behavior to the parents. It never ceases to amaze me the number of adults who will defend their child's action, no matter what. After all that is finished, by the cat a b.b. gun and let the kitty take pot shots at the little tyke !

    Duh! Anyone who wouldn't take steps to have this little brat taken care of would be as guilty as he in animal abuse. I can't believe there would be any problem making such a decision. If the parents wouldn't take it seriously maybe the local police would...or the ASPCA...there are laws against shooting at living creatures.

    Most definitely tell the parents. Children should all be taught to treat animals kindly. If the parents laughed it off and did not care, or it happend again after talking to the parents I would report it to the police & the SPCA.

    The bb gun as long as it isn't high powered is fun...remember as a child the wild rabbits...it wouldn't hurt them but would startle them and make them jump about 4 or 5 feet straight up before they took off quickly! Throwing rocks could hurt the animal and leave bad damage! That is the ONLY reason I would say to say something! When you tell someone to stop and they get progressively worse it starts leading to more illegal mannered things!
