    Sheriff says balloon incident a hoax

    He says it was a stunt for the family to "market themselves" for perhaps a future reality show. No surprise here.
    All of their boys were in on it...I feel do sorry for them, to be parented by such a dysfunctional couple.

    Considering the parents called the media before 911 is anyone really shocked here?

    Re: Sheriff says balloon incident a hoax

    I really hope that local gov't sends them a massive bill for their shenanigans. If there was ever a case for child protection services to step in and remove children from a home w/out abuse or illegal behavior by the parents, this is it.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    A regular Dick Tracey I tell you. I don't agree with Geraldo Rivera very often, but he was railing on the parents Friday morning on Fox calling it a hoax before anyone else would say it publicly, and I was saying the same thing.

    Yeah, you could see this coming a mile away, especially when the home video of him releasing the balloon was made public.

    Not only that, but I don't think a helium balloon that size would be able to carry a kid. It'd have to be absolutely massive.

    And yes, I also hope they get a massive bill for all of the equipment and manpower used in this fiasco.
