They don't deserve them after using innocent children to make money.

I think it's a stretch to say that telling your kid to go hide in the attic for a while is child endangerment.

However I suspect they will get the book thrown at them for all the time of the search and rescue teams, helicopters, and other associated costs, plus possibly a fine though just covering those expenses will likely be a large sum of money.

Hoax?? It was a conspiracy, I tell you!

"The official government story says there was no boy in that balloon. But a growing number of Americans are demanding the truth about what really happened on 10/15."

Regardless of what punishment the parents receive from this ordeal the six year old boy will spend the rest of his life being punished by his family for telling the truth.

I actually feel sorrier for that kid than feeling anything else about the story. I mean he singlehandedly took down the whole scheme. He might actually be better off if he is removed from his family after this.

There's NO proof of evidence of ANY crime the ENTIRE article .. or at least half of it. .

but, I guess it's enough to holler CRIME and have the police just walk in your home and grab all you got.. without a SHRED of evidence which is what I read in the Oreonian just yesterday. what would be crime, making a hoax movie ??

your right .. sump'n IS UP !!!

The "would be crime" is filing a false police report and wasting taxpayer resources. And they certainly had enough evidence to get a warrant to search the home; the boy's comment would be enough.

The justice system will play its course; if they are innocent, I'm certain that they will be found innocent.
