My 15 year old needs to take lessons from him. My boy assaults everyone in the house then when police come to tend to him he hits them as well. Yet the police do NOTHING about this. They blame it on his BiPolar that he is WELL medicated for. We've even called the police with evidence of hitting, kicking, biting, and objects being thrown at us. As well as holes placed in walls and doors and broken items tossed on the floor. He admits to them each time he's done it, that yes it was just done while we were on the phone with 911, and that he did it because "I was pissed that wouldnt let my play video games" OR even because we asked him to please get off to eat, shower, go to bed, etc. He appaered before a judge in Juvenile System ONCE. The judge dropped his case....this was the one and only time he assaulted his older sister. Judge told him if police were involved one more time he would be doing time behind bars. Since that time, this past April (his 15th birthday to be exacaat) we have called the police at least 10 more times. He has not even been sent to court knowing he has a record. In fact, the police tell us we cant even press charges against him. That child protection will just get involved and we'll end up losing both kids. We already child protection involved and have told police this a number of times. Still nothing....So now at 15 yrs old with countless hospitalizations behind him, several visits by the police, an appearance before a judge, and even "scare tactic" of being placed in cuffs and sitting in a holding cell for 8 hrs...he's being placed in a residential program. He's taller than any of us here anymore. He's stronger than both his mom and I...we're both disabled plus I'm in a wheelchair. We dont want to send him but honestly we're at the end of ropes and dont know what to do anymore.
