What would you do?
I guess it depends on the crime, kinda. If a lesson can be learned without jail time and no one was hurt, I believe I could handle it. If it is a beating or something where another person was violated then I’d have to take it a step further. The thing is that I would have to look at it from the opposite direction, and how if someone hurt my child and the justice I would want in that case.
One man in Chicago decided to turn his son in when he received a call from a family member saying his 17-year old son was in a Youtube video bullying and jumping another kid with a mob teens. Michael Palomino, a Sheriff’s deputy of 30 years called 911 on his son. (Good Morning America)
His son, clearly not the smartest, was the only person to show his face in the video and even grabs the camera at one point. At this time he is also the only one in jail and being charged as an adult. His $100,000 bail price is one Michael Palomino, a single dad, cannot afford.
The father doesn’t regret turning him in and according to the father the son says he did the right thing. Palomino and his lawyer have set up a fund to bail the kids out.

#DADsRULE – Let this and other Youtube videos be learning tools of what not to do. There are consequences to your children’s ill actions seen or unseen. Then I would say …
Hey Young World,
Always think first before you react or go along with something that goes against your better judgement. And whatever you do please don’t be dumb enough to video the crime, GEEZ!
