An unidentified 11-year-old boy stole a police bait car in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and then decided to go pick up two of his 10-year-old friends. "Fox & Friends" reports the boy couldn't even see over the wheel of the stolen vehicle. The Albuquerque Police Department spokesperson says they're shocked kids so young tried to steal a car. "Good Morning America" reports at one point, the boys crouched down to avoid being seen by police. KOB reports the boys now face juvenile criminal prosecution.

      So the cops put a car out to be stolen, then let an 11 year old drive around in it at least long enough to pick up his buddies. In what way is that promoting public safety? That's just plain stupid.

        My thoughts too. They should have shut that down before it left the curb

      the paents of the passengers need to sue the police department for wreckless endangerment for letting this even go that far.

        i wouldn't be surprised if the cops are always to blame in your book.

      @ kimo7724 The kids parents should not sue, it wasnt the police departments fault. It was the boy who decided to go for a little "joy ride" , the police department probably had enough weight on their shoulders to see it but hey, a policeman/woman has a tough job you know!!

        I think you are the idiot. Learn to spell and quit forcing your garbage on others. We are here for commenting to an article, not to read your jibberish.

      everyone knows right from wrong and these kids blew it off as a prank ! but if they had a crash and killed someone then the same comments by some would be the same. a message has to be sentfor if they dont next time the may not be so lucky

      Suspects black males? Usually is. Nationwide, african(americans) are just 12% of the population but account for 50% of violent offenders in prison, 50% of carjackers, 60% of car thieves, 50% of murders and the list goes on and on.

      kimo is right....they should have immediatley shut the down, they were surely in the wrong...he could have caused more harm.

      I don't know which is worst The fact that an eleven year old stole a bait car or the fact that some have the gal to blame police. It is because of ignorant people like this that there are 11 year old's stealing cars in the first place.

        My son works for 911 and explained bait cars to me. They have an alarm that goes off when the car is stolen (silent alarm) and there is a tracking device on it that shows where the car is , so they do know where it is and can intercept it and arrest the person stealing it. I agree it's wrong to blame the police. They put the car in high crime areas because they Know it's going to get stolen , they want to catch the people doing it.
