She probably made a resolution to get herself a better boyfriend and he didn't like what he heard. I agree, the parents should be held accountable.

Mr. Rivera must not be a member of a family with much political or social pull in Mahoning County..After all if he was then his name definately would not have been released to be printed in the Vindy.

This is why 15 & 16 year olds shouldn't be thought of as adults. They need supervision even if the parents want to party.
