C'mon, David. I know you have said that you never had children
but you should at least have some common sense.
I know that is a lot to ask, you being a lawyer and all.

Mo is 9 years old. He was not being held against his will.
We KNOW that from the fact that he successfully left.
Did I allege that he was "held against his will" as u put it ??

He was in a safe place that was endorsed by his mother.
I am not saying he should have stayed,
I am saying he should not have left without the knowledge and consent of his mother.
That is an INSULT to Mo.
I obviously have more respect for him than u do.
How 'd u respond if Mo said the same thing about U,
if the circumstances were reversed, Richard ?
U 'd judge his mind to be far inferior to yours
because he is younger and u have contempt for the young.
Mo might not JOIN u, in your opinion of contempt for him.
I don 't.

When I was 9, in those circumstances I certainly woud have done
exactly the same thing that Mo did. I admire his independence
and his willingness to autonomously control an unwelcome situation.
He may be 9 years old, but he acted like a MAN. He was brave.
(I guess at his age, u 'd have been a wimp, Richard?
I hope that u 'll tell me that I 'm mistaken and u 'd have done the same as he did.)
Mo showed his true character, which, predictably will only get stronger as he ages.
In a little way, he was a hero, standing up for what he believed, to wit: hitting the road.

U must understand, Richard, that Mo is a 9 year old AMERICAN,
whereas u were only a Canadian.

Well, it may have been a newsworthy event,
depending on the reason for his chosen departure.
Apparently, his trip was within walking distance.

Every predatory event, with man or beast, is a contest of power.

I want the victim to win,
whereas U want the victim to be helpless. I reject that.
When I was that age, I rejected it. I have never changed my mind.

On the other hand, u and others take a less masculine point of vu.

Mo was Intrepid.

" in·trep·id   
–adjective
resolutely fearless; dauntless: an intrepid explorer. "

At his age, were u trepid, Richard ?

@OmSigDAVID,
I won't clutter up the thread with a response to your long and senseless post. I will only respond to the beginning since that should carry through on the rest.

@CalamityJane,
Like usual, there hasn't been an outcome yet. It usually takes several days for such topics to be resolved.

Yes, Friend has siblings -- who is also a friend of Mo's. These kids spend tons of time over here so I don't think that set anything off.

David is actually kind of right.

I said....

Quote:
I'm still not sure whether I'm furious with him for leaving their house unannounced or happy that he knew to remove himself from whatever was making him uncomfortable.


I didn't provide these details but he had wanted to call me to come and get him and the brothers wouldn't let him use the phone -- so he left.

I hope that u will give Mo a hearty handshake from me, boomer, in congratulation of his bravery.

Joking aside, I think u shoud be proud of Mo, boomer.

That 's because your position was untenable and I revealed your error.

BALONEY!
The fact that no such duty ever existed,
does NOT mean that anyone started CONFINING Mo, Richard.

Nothing was posted about any loss of his physical freedom of movement.

Do u see the conceptual distinction, Richard ?

@OmSigDAVID,
I see that you are a complete and utter fool who can't put together a sentence let alone a viable thought. I won't waste my time conversing with a fool.

Also, I am pissed off that you got my first name and now use it instead of my user name. You are a pathetic piece of ****.

No, that is not true that I don 't use your username, Richard.
If u raise your eyes and look above,
u will see that I posted:

" Mo was Intrepid.

I hope that u saw that.

@dlowan,
Yeah... I guess "good on him". I just think there were better ways for him to handle things (like waking up the dad, or waiting for mom to get home from the store). I was about to leave the house when he showed up -- he could have easily come home to an empty house.

"The brothers" are his two best friends who are brothers. They were just messing with Mo, being little punks: "You can't wake up dad.", "You can't use the phone."

Under the circumstances he made the best decision he could.

I was still plenty freaked out and totally pissed at the family he was staying with.

Was it a long walk, for him to get home ?

I dunno about waking up his host; depending on who it is,
there coud be trouble with waking him up.
