Affluenza Kid Goes on the Lam

Well, the judge’s sentence worked here… 

(CNN)To the families of his victims, Texas teen Ethan Couch got off easy with 10 years’ probation after killing four people while driving drunk. Now his probation officer can’t find him, Couch’s attorneys said.

“The juvenile probation officer has been unable to make contact with Ethan or his mother with whom he has been residing,” attorneys Scott Brown and William Reagan Wynn said this week.

Part of Couch’s defense two years ago was that he was the product of wealthy, privileged parents who never set limits for the boy. A psychologist said in court that Couch, who was 16 at the time, suffered from “affluenza.”

The term triggered widespread outrage.

    I can’t stand teenage alcohol abuse.

    I see it all the time.

    Nearly everytime I intervene because the abusive alocoholic behavior causes fear for safety of employees, customers, or public at large, the parents nearly always try to enable the moronic behavior, and instead of apologizing to me for their poor parenting and poor child raising in relation to civil society, they think I’m at fault for not letting “boys be boys”.
