Parents take Xbox away: Boy rings Police

Which brands would you call the police for if snaffled away from you by a family member?  What toys did you have taken away when you were a wee person? Mine was a teddy bear.

Buffalo Grove boy dials 911 after parents take away his Xbox video game

A 15-year-old boy told Buffalo Grove police that his parents had taken away his video game system and asked whether they were within their rights.

They were, police told him. xbox_baby

The teen called 911 about 12:50 p.m. Sunday but then hung up, said Cmdr. Steve Husak. Officers went to the house, and after hearing the story, told the youth that his parents have the authority to take away his Xbox as punishment.

He also was advised to listen to his parents, Husak said. Husak did not know why the boy was being punished. (Chicago TribuneOpens in a new tab.)

… I still miss that bear. It was given to my baby sister. Who gave it to her kids. *hopefully* maybe I can get it back now? 😛
