Some people do really attract attention to themselves. I mean on the roof of a shop you couldn't get any worse. Good luck to him though in his police/court ordeal. Hope the police see sense and let him off. His only 15.

Bollockks. Most parents don't know what their kids are up to half the time. I know that mine didn't when I was out doing crime in my youth. The kids just need a quiet word from the police to steer them getting into further trouble later on in life. Jail is not the answer.
