13 Yr Old Steals Credit Card From Father But Has Better Things

May 25, 2008
Somebody should tell Senator Jon Kyl (Arizona Republican) who along with a few friends pushed the Unlawful Internet Gaming and Enforcement Act through congress to law riding on a bill about homeland security (which after 911 almost any of these are sure to pass) on the last day of the session when most of the potential voters had already gone home, that if he truly was worried about the reason he used for pushing this law through: to prevent children from stealing their parent's credit cards for the purpose of funding online gambling endeavors (unless they wanted to bet on the horses or the lotteries, they are still okay ... no small coincidence they are both gambling entities located in the states and very visible in DC), that he needn't have bothered to take away yet another freedom of the American people. That simply isn't the way kids think when it comes to stealing a credit card. They have other things in mind and young Ralph Hardy of Newark Texas is living proof of such matters.

It seems young Ralph liberated his father's credit card but gambling with it never entered his mind. He had other ideas that according to Money.co.uk, included buying an all night visit from two local call girls who along with the cost of an amazing amount of Dr Pepper, Fritos and Oreos ... plus several electronic gadgets, an Xbox video console with a heap of games (the hookers were paid to play video games with the boys) and $3000 cash, came to a total on Dad's card of over $30,000. In hindsight the kids getting ahold of a card and going online gambling may not be the worst thing that could happen.

If it can be said there is a comical side to this situation (aside from the whole incident which I'm certain the parents of the boys involved do not think is funny) it would be the way the boys convinced the hookers to stay. They were going to leave because the boy's age was so obvious but the boys countered with the story that they were people of stunted development who were traveling with a circus. They pointed out that state law prevents disabled workers to be discriminated against, therefore the hookers could not refuse their services.

No charges were filed against the "ladies" since all they did was to play video games with the boys. Watch out Senator Kyl, you may be able to sell an unenforceable law to a bunch of absent politicians about the dangers of online gambling while leaving out the gambling entities of which are known to be very powerful in the campaign contribution department in Washington, namely the horse racing industry,... but if young Ralph's current ability to put a twist on things to turn them to his advantage, is any indication of what is to come when he matures ... he may just have the makings of what it would take to fill your shoes, sir.
