Mom Forces Teen Son to Wear Sign of His Crimes In Public

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.”

  1. It seems rather harsh, dosen’t it? Well, what was Ms. Lax to do? She is trying, the best she knows how, to save her son! Apparently, the judicial system is lying in wait for this youngster to actually do something they could lock him up for a good long while. But, in the meantime try to milk all the money they could, for whatever reason, out of Ms. Lax.
    Some may not appreciate her methods. If the couple of hours of embarrassment causes him to mend his ways–two things were accomplished: perhaps he’ll stay out of jail and he obeyed his Mom by going through with the punishment! Maybe all is not yet lost.
    If I wore a hat, it would be off to you Ms. Lax.

    • Totally agree with Ms. Lax and Ms. Ferguson!
      The mother was at her wits’ end, and the law was only
      milking more money out of her and not really addressing
      the problem, so she applied her own solution. Maybe it
      will save his life.

  2. I find it interesting that motorist were so concerned about the potential damage to this young man’s psyche that they felt compelled to call the police. I doubt they would be so concerned with his wellbeing if they had been the victims of his various crimes.

    Good for Ms. Lax for going above and beyond in an effort to save her son. We lose too many young men to the system. They get the sense that they are untouchable and at eighteen the same courts that let him go will gladly send him to any private prison willing to give a kick back.

  3. Well that will have impact. I think the best way is to get him off the circle he called friends.

    It seem his mum still has the will power. Now seem to be the time to stop this madness!

  4. Okay. This is my first time reading this post but need to put my input on the situation. . . Ms. Lax, I applaud you for being the strong black mother you are in raising your son but I need to let you know how I would have avoided all of his run-ins with the law . . .

    The first time he messed up, I would have took him, cut me a thin, fresh green switch, and tore him up!!! Not only would the sting of the switch had got his attention but the welts it would have left would have gained his attention for the weeks to come!

    You see, I am the proud father of three sons, age 26, 23 & 19. All it took was an old fashioned whipping of my oldest son before his younger brothers & I am proud to say, to-date, my oldest son has his PhD in sociology, my midddle son is working towards his Master’s in Education & my youngest just got his Associate’s Degree & is working towards more degree(s) as I live & breath!!!
    To sum it up, I am the proudest black father in Louisiana. . . But
    in order for that to have came about, I had to lay down So when they decided to “mess up”, I would decide to “tear up”, no questions asked. I am not saying whatsoever that what Ms. Lax did was wrong because everyone has their own unique way of discplining their children but based on what she described as his premature “life of crime”, well, I have to wonder did she discipline him during his really young age? I wish I could talk to her & get an update on her son to-date. Hopefully, her method worked but trust me when I say, the “switch” will get your mind right very quickly. I am a prime example of old scholl Southern switchings coming up & I made sure that my three sons were accustomed to them as well. At 14 yrs. old, it is not too late!!!
