My neighborhood is full of idiot parents. There isn't a day that goes by that my wife and I don't see a little kid walking the mean streets of Lenexa alone. Alone in a neighborhood that is 3 blocks away from the Target store that Kelsey Smith was kidnapped, raped and later murdered. I am not talking about teenagers or 11/12 year olds, these kids are between the ages of 4-8.

Last night on my way home from work I almost ran over one of these kids as did the guy coming down the street 30 seconds behind me. The kids were playing a game IN THE DARK where they would jump out into the street from behind a bush as a car came down the road and then jump back behind the bush. So I pulled into my garage told my wife what happened and that I was going to go up and talk to the kids parents. The kids wouldn't tell me which house there parents could be found so I told them I would call the police if they did that again.

As I was walking back home I looked behind me and thought that if one of those girls died tonight and I didn't do anything about it that it would be my fault (since their parents obviously didn't give a crap about them) so I called the cops. They looked for the kids with no luck but hopefully the site of the police car shining its spotlight through out the neighborhood was enough to scare them into stopping.

Note to parents: If you don't give a crap about where your kids are or what they are doing the it is YOUR FAULT if something happens to them.
