After Dynesha Lax’s 14-year-old received a slap on the wrist for various crimes, she decided to take the law into her own hands.
The Fort Wayne, Indiana teen was ordered by his mother to stand on a busy street for two hours with the following sign hanging around his neck:
“I lie, I steal, I sell drugs, I don’t follow the law.”
“I decided he broke the law and they only gave him a few hours community service so I decided that we were going to wear a sign that says you looking for attention, we’re going to get you attention,” Lax told KLTV.
The frustrated mother says that her son has committed various felonies and the court system is more concerned with making money off of his crimes that rehabilitating him:
“What else more can I do?” said Lax. “They put him on probation and when they did probation they were quick to talk about the 300 some dollars you have to pay in fees, but nobody’s trying to help me fix my son.”
Shocked drivers called the police who brushed off the incident by saying that Lax was well within her rights to put her son on display:
“I’m hoping that having him out here is going to make it sink in,” said Lax. “It wasn’t for it to be a joke or anything funny. He just had to stand out here two hours and suddenly it blew up. Then again they’ve got their way of parenting and I’ve got mine. My object is to save my son.”
