NZ kid is killed for stealing parents car

A NEW Zealand teenager whose parents decided to send him to prison to teach him a lesson for taking the family car without permission has died after being bashed while being transported in a police van.

Liam Ashley, 17, was assaulted in a Chubb Security van as he was being taken to Mt Eden Remand Prison from court in Auckland on Thursday night, Radio New Zealand reported.

He had been offered bail at court but his family decided he should go to prison and experience the serious consequences of breaking the law.

The Ashley family said Liam suffered extensive brain damage after being strangled - and they were devastated by his death. They now want answers from the security company involved.

Thirteen other prisoners were being transported in the security van at the time. The van was divided up into secure sections and Liam was travelling with two other prisoners in one compartment.

I must say that you can't help but feel sorry for the stupidity of the parents. They obviously didn't realise that when you steal, you don't go to white collar jail, but spend time with real criminals. These guys molest each other. Some are also famous for something else - murder.

Child molestation charges should be brought both against the police and the parents. its unthinkable that they didn't know what would happen
