"balloon boy" admits they did it all for the show. Do you think the parents should pay?

As in the search and rescue people and ambulance and cops etc. I'm on my phone so I can't copy the YouTube video so if anyone can post it that would be helpful. Thanks!

  • These people were on wife swap. I totally believe it was a hoax and they are attention seekers.

  • they should be fined and possibly arrested. Isnt it against the law to do something like that? That may sound extreme to some people but they need to get that this is NOT ok. It wasted hours that cops should have been looking for criminals, and all those prayers people were saying for this kid! What the hell did they teach him by doing this? They need a kick in the ass

  • Remember the Run-Away Bride? She had to pay for the cost of her search. I think they should too. It costs tax payers money

  • The boy was hiding in the attic because he didn't want his dad to yell at him for accidentally letting the "balloon go.He brought snacks up there and fell asleep.I don't what everybody is talking about!
