Teen Kills Parents & Has A Party; Sends Invites Via Facebook
It seems every other day we hear of parents who are attacked (or worse) by their own children. It’s usually over something trivial like cell phones, boyfriends, curfews and such. As a young man, I feel old by today’s standards in that my parents (especially my dad) believed in putting the fear of God in me when it came to disrespecting them. These days, that fear is gone as this unfortunate news story will demonstrate.
Seventeen-year-old Tyler Hadley (on the far right in the picture, above) murdered both of his parents in their home with a hammer. After he was done, he locked their bedroom door and then threw a house party, inviting partygoers via Facebook. Read: The party went down in the same house where the corpses of his parents were, unbeknownst to the guests.
After receiving a tip, police went to the house and arrested a very nervous Hadley, who claimed his parents were out of town. After obtaining a search warrant, police found both Blake and Mary-Jo Hadley dead from blunt force trauma to the head and torso. They were partially buried under household items and a hammer lay between them. It is not yet known how Hadley was able to overpower both of his parents. To make matters worse, Hadley had already proven a liability to his parents as his family was being sued for $15,000 because their son hit and injured a child pedestrian with his father’s vehicle.
Needless to say, Hadley will be tried as an adult on two counts of first-degree murder and is currently being held without bond. What is really going on with the youth today? As I said earlier, we seem to be hearing more and more stories of teenagers attempting (or succeeding) to harm or kill those who actually take care of them, which makes absolutely no sense. If you take out those who provide for you, how on Earth will you provide for yourself? How is it these kids don’t think things through enough to know better?
It seems parents would do well to present boundaries and discipline for their children beginning when they are very young, teaching them to respect authority. If they do not learn these things, they are more likely to become menaces to society.
