    Dad arrested giving son lit ciggie and fireworks

    Lewis Coleman at the age of 28 thinks it's alright to give his 8 year old a lit ciggie and some fireworks.

    A police officer saw a boy with a lit cigarette trying to light a firecracker. When asked where his parents were the boy went into the house and his dad came out. Being the ever stellar parent Coleman told cops he didn't have a punk or lighter to give the boy to light the fireworks so he gave him a lit cigarette. O.K. then. Good lookout, dad.

    Coleman was arrested for child endangerment. The boy was released to his mother.

    I know people here use lit cigarettes to lite firecrackers all the time , but how much of an ignoramus do you have to be to A. give your 8 year old a cigarette and B. let a child that young shoot of fireworks with no supervision.

    Oh you'd be surprised, Ciara. I see stupid parent tricks almost daily.

    You know it's too much work to go out and light some fireworks for the kids. Might as well let them do it themselves. Sure, I used to tell my DD and nephews to just go on out and take them fireworks with you. Tossed them a lighter. I wouldn't even let the kids off the step when adults were setting them things off. See though that required me to actually take my fat tail outside and pay attention.
