Mom Charged With Driving Kids Around to Fire BB Guns at Cars in Some Sort of Sick Game (VIDEO)

A bunch of kids driving around shooting out car windows with BB guns would be bad enough. When the kids are being driven around and encouraged to shoot out the car windows by their very own mother, however, it's just plain twisted.

The 43-year-old mom, Susan Becker of East Port, New York, was charged this weekend with buying BB guns, then driving her 13-year-old son, 15-year-old daughter, and another 15-year-old boy around the area and encouraging them to shoot out the windows of random vehicles in the area. Encouraging them damage other people's property.

And damage it they did. According to CBS, police are investigating more than 60 incidents of cars damaged by BB guns in the past two weeks. Sixty!

One man who lost a garage window to a BB gun told the station, "Crazy mom. What mom would instruct their children to do that? It's crazy."

Seriously, crazy about sums it up. We've seen plenty of cases in which parents turn a blind eye to their kids' bad behavior, or even cover it up when they learn of it. While not justifiable, that's at least understandable. This is mind-boggling.

What kind of mother would encourage her kids to do something so destructive? Something so illegal and potentially dangerous? Was it some sort of a twisted game? Did she think it would make her a "cool" mom? As much as the kids are old enough that they should know better, you have to wonder how on earth they would have learned better with a mother like this.

What it really boils down to is selfishness on the part of the mother. She must have had some pent up rage or issues with people in the town or people in general, and to use her children to take that out is beyond irresponsible. While there's no report as to if the kids have been charged, Susan has been charged with multiple counts of criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child. I hope she's prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and that they kids get some help.

Why do you think a mom would do this?

Unbelievable! WTF- kind of Mother does something like this? she has some serious issues..

Was she drunk? She needs a good, old-fashioned beat down from one of the victims. Too bad the cops caught her before it could happen. Then those kids would have learned a very valuable lesson about natural consequences.


Let me guess, her children are angels and she was letting them blow off steam? Bet she has a record a mile long. Mother of the year? What a joke!

She did this repeatedly for two weeks?  What the heck was her thought process?  Why did the kids go along with it?  Just...what?

The kids were probably just as trashy as she is, seeing as she raised them. This is why we can't have nice things.

these sort of parents are why so many others look bad and why laws get passed!!! Laws always get passed because of people like this!
