    Excellent, pretty soon child labor will be legal again. Much money to be saved.

    ...passing some slower moving traffic? I`m impressed a 6 year old could make it that far before crashing. And they say video games are good for nothing.

    i heard he got taken off his parents :( i reckon thats a bit drastic as it only takes about 5 seconds of inattention for your kid to wander off

    still, kudos to the kid for making it that far!

    It wasn`t the driving that got him into trouble, it was when he pulled up next to another car, said "That`s my ride now" and dragged the driver out, then ran over and beat up a nearby prostitute that he got into trouble. When they arrested him he was just sitting there saying "R1 R1 O R2 UDUDUD" over and over...

    Apparently, he learned to drive from playing Grand Theft Auto and Monster Truck Jam. Anyways, I`m impressed. 9.5 miles, and only 0.5 left.

    dad`s comment made me smile:

    "he`s a very slick kid, he is"

    the little guy has balls of steel and is probably pretty smart... i still get lost driving around sometimes, and i`m 26~

    If you read some articles about this, then you`ll see that CNN left some big details out. He wasn`t wearing a seatbelt, he was standing up because he couldn`t sit and reach the pedals/see over the steering wheel. Also, the main factor of him wanting to get to school is because of the free breakfast--maybe the parents didn`t feed him that in the morning? And to top it off, the father has a court order to never leave the child alone with his mother, and he had because he was at work when it happened. So this wasn`t so much of a "slick kid", this was more a case of these people clearly can`t care for kids responsibly. I won`t be surprised if we hear about this kid being taken into a foster home.

    According to another video I saw with this same incident, he plays monster-truck games and Grand Theft Auto. What kind of parent lets a six-year-old play Grand Theft Auto? I seriously hope that other one I saw was lying, because that`s just sad...

    Well, I can see where this is going; "The whole thing was caused by video games. Let`s ban them! I mean, we can`t let the PARENTS take responsibility for letting their child play the games in the first place, oh no! We have to find another source!" B-|
