I think she’d have been better off letting him have a FaceBook page….at least she would have had better access then to other friends he might have been talking to or even the planning!

Four Teens Go Missing in Xbox Romance

A romance that started on Xbox has ended in four Iowa teens running away from their homes, their parents and police say.

Two teenage girls from Shellsburg and two teenage boys from Atlantic went missing Saturday in what police said may have been a plotted escape.

Crystal Sunderman, the mother of missing 16-year-old Corey Sunderman, said she believes her son met his girlfriend Jazlyn Visek, 15, through Xbox’s online gaming system and planned to run away with her and two other teens.

“I don’t let him have a Facebook account because I don’t want him meeting people online,” Crystal Sunderman said. “I didn’t realize they could do so much on Xbox.”

Corey Sunderman and Austin Boggs, 13, disappeared early Saturday morning after a run-in with police the night before. Later that same day, Visek and Skie Floyd, 15, also disappeared.

The mother sounds like someone worth running away from. Why have kids if all you want to do is control their lives? Surely they should be encouraged to socialise with people, on the net or otherwise and encouraged to be independent.

Also what is this “violating curfew”? Is this one of those states that thinks that letting children out at night leads to bad things, so best make a law to keep them locked up all night? When they reach 18/21 they are like a coiled spring and wind up in more trouble than they would had they been allowed some freedom, or in this case, they’ve had enough already at 13-15 years old and GTFO ASAP.

Well, some areas have teen curvews because the teens are already running amok. Vandalism, etc. It varies by region, but it’s mostly a simple way to help curb night-time shenanegains, gang activity, and calls from worried parents.

Around here? No worries if you’re out late, but heaven help you if you don’t have a light on your bicycle.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?
