    In 1987, I was in 7th grade.... Me and my best friend were running the neighborhood the night of the championship game.... We went to a neighbor's garage and grabbed some little kings... Well, we drank them in the woods and started to walk back to his house.... I looked at my watch... I was like "hold on!!" .... "The game is almost over!!" He said "what game?" I said "the championship!"... Long story short, I made him watch the final 2 minutes peeking through a neighbor's window (his recliner was not facing us)... And I saw smart win it live.... True story! (We did make it back to his house.... I was overjoyed).....

    Actually, he only committed two crimes. But Theft was a felony in 1987. The other crime was possession of alcohol by a minor--a misdemeanor.

    Littering is an infraction, not a crime. It's only punishable by a fine. Invasion of Privacy only occurs when you violate a protective order. Peeping (aka Voyeurism) requires evidence of intent to satisfy a sexual desire. Trespassing requires an explicit denial of entry or demand to leave.

    When we lived in Illinois my four kids were in the neighborhood playing with other kids. One of the kids named Sam threw a rock at the Bank's drive thru window and scratched it. After they figured out Sam did the local cop let my kids come home. My youngest daughter who was 3 1/2 at the time came up to me and said, "Daddy, I don't want to go to Juvie". I said to her, "If you didn't throw the rock then you wouldn't go to Juvie." She then repeated, "I don't want to go to Juvie". She is an adult now and sometimes I say, "Honey, don't do that because it is illegal. You won't go to Juvie. You will go to JAIL". lol Good memories.

    It's only a foul when the whistle blows and the Official makes the call.

    Why was your 3 yr old so far out of sight that no adult saw if she threw a rock or not?

    Adults did see the other boy throw the rock. My daughter was with her two older brothers and older sister. One other point is that the bank was 1 block from the parsonage where we lived. It's not like we dropped the kids off five miles away and said, "Have a good day".

    Good point. Story has a lot of holes in it. How did the adults not bring the 3 year old home prior to a criminal investigation by the local cop? Was she a suspect?

    I think we've already well-established that rational actions and precautions aren't a VPM strength. I guess God will take care of them too!

    Here is one from my youth which fortunately didn't have any legal consequences. One Halloween night, a friend of mine and I were together on Halloween night, walking around our small town probably doing some trick or treating. I was in Middle School or maybe 6th Grade, and the other kid was a year older. The other kid wasn't criminally bad. but he was the son of a police Officer, and somehow if something went wrong, he was most likely to be caught. Knowing that, I probably shouldn't have been with him.

    For Halloween activity, our Town sponsored a huge Bonfire. For weeks ahead we would collect chestnuts that fell from the numerous trees in town, put them in Grocery Bags bring them to the fire, and throw them into the fire.

    When the bonfire was over and our supplies of chestnuts were exhausted. We were walking back through town along the edge of a park that had chestnut trees. My buddy picks up a Chestnut from the ground, yells Tarkenton (after the Minnesota Vikings Quarterback), rolls to his right, and launches a Chestnut at nothing in particular as far as he can throw it. Two Seconds later we hear this sound of breaking glass. The missile had hit a picture window of a house across the Street. The impressive thing was that his blind throw carried about 70 yards in the air before breaking the window.

    Fortunately everybody believed the story and there were no consequences. But the guy who was seemingly always in the middle of trouble, got himself into the middle of an incident with no intent to cause any harm.

    Kudos to you guys for owning up. At that age, my reaction to breaking glass was to run the other way! Figuratively speaking of course!

    Funny now but not so much back then, but I was in the 5th or 6th grade so this had to have been back in the mid to late 60s, but one day at school I didn't feel so hot so I went home at lunch (school was basically our backyard) to look for some Tylenol. My mother worked as a school aid so I know she wouldn't have taken me seriously and sent me on my way. The medicine cabinet was in my parents bathroom and after a thorough search for Tylenol that netted an empty result, I saw a prescription bottle that my mother called her "lifesavers" and decided to take two of them. I went back to school before the start of the next class and after about 30 minutes felt even worse than I had prior. The teacher noticed me dozing off in class and after explaining what I took, a very concerned look came across her face and she escorted me to the nurse office where my mother was working and I retold me story. Needless to say, she immediately took me home and I remember passing out.

    Several years later this story was brought up and I later found out that those "lifesavers" were actually Quaaludes. My mother was prescribed to them until they were banned and took them as sleeping pills.
