Lock the doors! Check the windows!

Mommy, don't let them take me!


Niblet has been reading the newspaper lately but I think I may stop giving it to him because he practically did a backflip when he read this story:

Teen charged with stealing bunny, trying to extort money

PORTLAND, Maine - A Portland teen has been charged with stealing a pet bunny and trying to extort money from the bunny's owner.

The 17-year old, who's being held at the Long Creek Youth Development Center, is accused of breaking into another teen's apartment and stealing the gray pygmy rabbit. Police say he then telephoned the rabbit's owner demanding repayment of a $100 debt [WTF!] or else the rabbit would be hurt.

Police Lt. Tony Ward says officers recovered the rabbit in good condition.

They charged the 17-year-old with burglary and theft in connection with the break-in.

The juvenile is also charged with robbery, assault and terrorizing following a confrontation last Friday in which he allegedly stole another teen's skateboard, backpack and pocket money.

OHMIGOD--"neither a borrower nor a lender be," indeed! Oh dear. Throw the book at this psycho!

A bunny suit is too good for him. Make him eat rabbit kibble for a year, in a cage!

I'll go out on a limb here and predict that kid will have an extensive adult criminal record within the next 5 years.

Kids are crazy these days, I guess! I like Dr. Z's idea of making him eat the bunny chow!

Dude... step away from the bunnies!

Certainly makes you think the teen doing the stealing had issues. Maybe a grudge against the teen from whom he stole?
And the poort bunny in the middle.
Hang on to Niblet!

That 17-year-old technically is still his parents' responsibility. Are they being charged with negligence? ;)
