Angry mom refuses to bail out teen son accused of car theft
A teenager accused of stealing a pizza delivery guy's car was chewed out by a judge -- and his mom -- Sunday morning in court.
Ravontay Hutchins, 17, allegedly stole the 1996 Acura Integra after the driver left the keys in the ignition and the engine running outside Pompeii, 1531 W. Taylor, at 9:20 p.m. Saturday.
Two cops on a lunch break at the restaurant heard about the theft and quickly put out a description of the stolen car, which the delivery guy was following in another car, police said.
Hutchins and a 14-year-old accomplice were soon arrested after a brief foot chase in the 1300 block of South Albany, prosecutors said.
At a hearing Sunday in Cook County Criminal Court, Hutchins' mother told Judge Peggy Chiampas that Hutchins' father was serving with the military in Iraq and that she'd done everything she could for the boy, who was "spoiled."
When Chiampas set Hutchins' bail at $25,000, his mother told the judge "I've got [the money to bail him out], but he's staying here, locked up!" and stormed from the courtroom.
Chiampas praised her, saying, "I want to know why there's not more parents like this. ... I applaud her for her truthfulness."

If I ever have to bail my kids out of jail they are probably going to want to stay.

Good, Kid should be held responsible for his actions'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Good for Mom. I wish there were more like her.
My Dad put the "Fear of God" into us kids at a young age. He sad " I will fight tooth and nail for you , but if you get into trouble with The Law, you will get No Mercy from me. Of course, he was one of your brothers, Go Figure. By George, I think it worked. Neither of us kids have ever seen the inside of a jail, unless it was on TV or in a museum.
Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

I tell my kids the same thing my parents told me. "If you get arrested, call and let us know. We're not going to bail you out, we just don't want to worry when you don't come home."
That kept me out of trouble.Wiping the turds of humanity from the ass of society from 1600 to midnight.
