I used to debug programs in the 80s... They'd give me a program to use and I'd eddie proof it....

Similar to idiot proofing... Very very similar to idiot proofing
I think I saw a film about that.

My son wanted to go to Bali and we said no. Not with us, not with his friends, not while he was under 18 and in our care. Once he's an adult I can't stop him from going where he likes, but while he is still a child I have enough sense not to take him to a country where possession of drugs could lead to his spending the rest of his life in prison. I know Indonesia is a third world country with very strict drugs laws and I know my child smokes marijuana. I also know my son is stupid enough and still immature enough to think he can do what he likes and get away with it.

I find it reprehensible that these parents have taken their child (who they admitted they knew used drugs here) to a country where drugs are so easily available and which has such strict laws and left him unsupervised. I find it equally reprehensible that they now are claiming he is an addict so he can use his "addiction" as a get-out-of-jail-free card. It's a slap in the face to true drug addicts IMO.

This 14 year old has shown no remorse for his crime unless it suits him. When he was first arrested he posted pictures of himself on Facebook with a smile on his face from the police station. Now, after his parents have signed a lucrative deal with the TV networks and magazines he cries in court and says he knows he was wrong? Sorry, but I'm not buying it. I agree with the posters here and the commenters on the news story who have said that they Australian government should stop this payout from happening and that he should be sentenced to prison like any other person who breaks the law. Just because the sentence is not what he would have received here does not mean that he should not have to abide by the laws of the country he's in.
Agree with you totally
