I think a bigger question is what kind of kids steal from their parents?
If I wanted I could have ordered pay per view movies from the time I was 12 without my parents permission, or ordered shit on amazon with 1 click.
This is quite simply a parenting and trust issue, rather than a tech issue.

and a 5 year old is fully aware that by clicking a button that says he wants more blue crystals or whatever the fuck that they are spending their parents money?

"Update 1.9.14: Rogers confirmed to WIRED that the vulnerability he found was a SQL-injection vulnerability. He says the police have not contacted him and that he only learned he’d been reported to the police from the journalist who wrote the story for The Age."

HE DID NOT GET ARRESTED. Clearly who ever posted this story can't read.

Oh you mean after once side they used a bunch parliamentary tricks to limit debate, ultimately abusing budget reconciliation to prevent amendments to the bill, that democratic process?

Face it the leftists did everything they possibly could within the rules to ram the thing thru because that was the only way it was getting through.

Is someone feeling a bit of butt hurt that a majority voted for something and it got up?

Some times people deserve capital punishment. I am not saying in most of the cases that we do it they deserve it, but someone who is an un-remorseful mass murderer should be put to death. The tax payer should not be liable to keep them alive, or let them free to kill again.

Whether some people deserve it or not is irrelevant, given that is not demonstrated as the criterion taken into account for people who are sentenced to death. The criterion taken into account, as demonstrated by statistics, is race and socioeconomic background.

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
