Three 13 year olds did over $200,000 in damages to a micro brewery that was under construction when they spent three consecutive nights breaking everything in the building. The owner says that he doesn’t think he can get the money from the children because they are so young, and the parents of the children are refusing to step up.

I don’t know what Michigan law says, but in most states the parents are responsible for whatever damages are caused by their crotch fruit. I would sue the parents. Any judgements in Michigan are good for ten years, and they can be renewed once. So these kids and their parents can be running from this for two decades, unless they want to declare bankruptcy. Wage garnishment, taking any property they have and selling it to recoup some damages are tools, unless they have nothing at all to take. For the next 20 years.

Reading the comments is elucidating.

Commsarina Gretchen (CPUSA) will make the taxable unit serfs pay for it?
What about all the muh weed money?
Oh, they grow their own since it is legal.

You’re 100% correct. The parents should be held accountable for their children’s destructive behavior.

Responsible people do not have hood rats that behave this way. Irresponsible people tend to be NINJAs; No Income, No Job or Assets. If he sues them, he will just be out legal fees as well.

    Except he will have a judgement that is good for up to 20 years. If any of them ever come into money, he can go after it. Lottery, a job, or a government windfall, he gets it.

Spay and neuter the lot of them. Kids and parents. And make them pay, forever if needed.

Anybody see if they were dindus? Not finding much on the twerps.

You sue so that the amount owed is established. These types (parents) tend to buy Lotto tickets and such so if they get a big winner you are first in line to collect.

Engaging in a construction project north of $200K without a contractor’s bond and insurance is (obviously) a fool’s errand. If the victim had it, they would only be dealing with a construction delay, for which they could also collect damages. The insurance company’s attorneys would then sue the living daylights out of anyone and everyone while the insured victims get on with the project. Which, in this case, would most likely consist of finishing their micro-brewery, creating a few batches of poor to mediocre malt beverages, losing their ass and going out of business. But at least at that point they would have had the experience of failing at their intended endeavor instead of going belly up during the construction phase.

    Actually reading the link you learn he was refused insurance due to previous vandalism at that address.

Screw that. Hire some local thugs to beat the living sh*t out of the 13 year olds. In about six months.
If one or two end up crippled or in a coma, it’s money well spent.

Wait a year, then repeat the treatment for the parents. Literal knee-breaking, or smashing hands with sledge hammers, would not go too far.

Some lessons have to be properly driven home.

By then, both the thuglets and their worthless parents will have left such a trail of deserving it, the police will have more potential suspects than they can ever interview.

If we had a justice system, the parents collectively would be charged with 200 felony counts of property destruction, and allowed to work that debt off in prison at 16¢/hr until it was paid in full. If the children agreed to plead guilty, they could take on their fair share of the debt.
If they were charged, tried, and found guilty, they would get equal culpability. $200K ÷ 9 (three thuglets + 6 parents) = $22,222.22@. 16¢/hr would mean they could get out in 66 years and 9 months (assuming 40 hr weeks, 52 weeks/yr), which would be both just and fair all around. If they could raise their share faster any other legal way, they could be released upon full restitution.

If any of them were going to discover a cure for cancer, they could do it just as easily from inside prison as they could outside of it.
