"Affluenza"

by Jerry Bader

I saw this all over Fox News on Friday, with the sound down and had no idea what it was. Part of me wishes I wouldn't have learned what "affluenza" is. Think about this; being a spoiled brat now makes you a victim. Just let that roll around. Because according to the judge hear, the "cure" for this isn't to face the consequences for your actions. Rather what's best is to let the souless creature instead get a cushy rehab center. 

Young people whose parents let them get away with everything is hardly a new concept. What's new hear is considering such children victims! By this measure, spoiled rich kids should never be punished for acting like spoiled rich kids. instead they should be "treated." Does this make spoiling your kid child abuse?
