He’s an alcoholic car thief…and he’s only nine years old

A horrifying story in the Sydney Morning Herald today. A nine year old boy is now Victoria’s (Australia) youngest criminal prisoner.

He has been committing crimes since he was seven, including

car theft, stealing from cars and chroming [The process of getting high from aerosol cans sprayed into a paper bag and inhaled]. He was also a suspect in a violent assault on a train.

He is too young to be charged, and knows it, taunting police.

He is receiving intensive help from the state according to Dpt Human Svcs spokesman Brendan Ryan.

“He receives daily intensive case management with specialist child support workers and has an additional case worker,” Mr Ryan said.

“We are continuing to work with support agencies and police to manage this child’s challenging behaviour.

“A lot of people have been working hard to try to turn this child’s life around.”

I can only imagine the kind of home this poor child comes from to act this way, and at such a young age!
