View Full Version : Custody Battle

Philadelphia(AP) - A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a
Philadelphia, Pa courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court

ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of

being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to

his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring

that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him

more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When

the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy

cried out that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning

that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the

judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who

should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child

welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the

Philadelphia Eagles, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating

Good one, sweetheart. I didn't see that one coming even though I watched the game on Sunday.
How depressing.

Chopstick, I have to agree with that statement as I said before I watched 9 hours of nineball at Turning Stone Casino and didn't see 200 balls pocketed. I did see Charlie Williams chalk his cue 150 times without hitting the cueball once. Watching Grass Grow is more exciting.####;
