From A Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer Message Board I Follow

Quite a few people chimed in with a "don't be a lawyer, be a parent" theme.  I agree. The cop was probably (hopefully) just bluffing in order to scare the kid to death.

Those Jackass movies are just great, right?

Yeah, but WHAT charge WERE they talking about? I'm a lawyer involved with criminal work and I don't have a clue what the police officers were referring to.

cops just love to find something to harass people with, esp. teenagers...'leave them kids alone'!

Who cares???? They were probably bluffing from the beginning to scare them straight. I applaud the officers for doing so if that is the case.

Too many people worry about the wrong part of the problem.

Those officers just got you three or four weeks of good behavior. When the kids figure out that they wont be charged they will be up to no good again! You should thank them.

If you want people to respect law and order don't lie or slam them into walls. Nice of the officers to check it out and for someone to call. Common sense says anyone could have an empty child seat in their truck bed. I'm not a lawyer, but sure there is no foul here. People are way to serious and sensitive these days.

I'm not sure what common sense has to do with it, but the story says the car seat was on the tool box, not just in the bed of the truck. Police were responding to a legitimate concern. And it says they were reenacting a stunt from Jackass, which means they were up to no good. Probably not a crime committed, but they did need to have a good scare, because that's what they were attempting to do to others

Giving teenagers a scare? Those officers best be careful, lest, in 2011, they themselves are investigated...for bullying. Isn't that what our legislature is sbout to try and put a stop to?

Reminds me of my grandfather. When I was about 4, I left my doll on the bumper of his truck. He got up in the morning and drove to work. He had a few cars honking and trying to pull him over. He did and boy was he surprised. They actually thought it was a baby. I don't remember, it was told to me. thankfully, I did turn out to be a pretty good mama. I never left my babies on a truck anyway.

I thought it was illegal to carry people in the back of trucks in the first place. The coppers gave the kiddos a guilty conscience. There is nothing wrong with having a guilty conscience, unless you are really guilty of something, otherwise, it serves to keep some folk's butts out of trouble, if they are capable of getting/having a guilty conscience. If they have no soul, I don't think their conscience can be made to feel guilty. So, sometimes it works, other times, it doesn't. Attempting to give someone a guilty conscience, that is.

If that's the worst they do then great kids!! They will meet up 20 years from now and laugh about the prank!!! Lighten up people! Cops did a fine job.. Kids are okay and they didn't have a baby!!! it was a car seat!! Not a big deal,

Nothing wrong with the Jackass movies. Only idiots go out and try to replicate. Played with guns as a kid, didn't go around killing people. I've watched Saw, but haven't captured and tortured people. I've watched Jackass, but have somehow managed to avoid taking a crap in a toilet in the middle of Home Depot.

Jackass, (that's your name, not my opinion) you're correct that it's illegal. I know DPS busted people last Halloween for shuttling kids on a hay ride trailer trick or treating.

The world's a safer place for us all now.
