Mom Threatens To Blow Up Courthouse After Daughter's Sentencing

POSTED: 4:32 pm EDT August 4, 2005
UPDATED: 5:25 pm EDT August 4, 2005

BARTOW, Fla. -- The mother of a young 12-year-old car thief stormed out of a Polk County courtroom Thursday. She threatened to blow the place up out of anger over the 10-year sentence that was just handed to her daughter.

"This is a very serious, serious event," said Judge Charles B. Curry.

Curry sentenced 12-year-old Dekyra Bush to a total of 10 years in state custody for taking a joyride in a car back in June and then hitting two Polk County sheriff's cruisers before deputies fired a total of nine shots into the car to stop her.

As she was being led away by bailiffs, Dekyra's mother burst out of the courtroom. The judge had Sharon Bush brought back before him, but didn't find her in contempt. She could of spent up to six months in jail, but instead once again left the courtroom without her daughter.

The woman, who weeks ago railed against the system that exonerated deputies for firing on her kid, now had another cause to complaint about.

"I'm gonna blow this #@%$ up," Bush said. "That's how upset I am."

Also during sentencing, the judge said what the 12-year-old did was not just a delinquent act, but implied she had endangered the public.

What a stupid bitch. The judge should of thrown her sorry ass in jail.

God, I can't believe parents today. If I was that kid, I would have never made it to court. My dad would have taken care of everything, then apologized to the judge for my behavior.

Maybe if the mother did her job right raising her daughter, her daughter would have known that stealing a car is a very bad thing to do.

They should sentence the mother to 10 yrs as well and make them share a cell. It would be the best thing for the both of them.

Grammatical errors aside: What a wholesome, upstanding family! That judge is a heartless clod who should be ashamed of himself. Why, every 12 year old girl embarks upon an occasional foray into car theft, wanton endangerment and thuggery, don't they?! Why, it's as much a part of growing up as getting her first crush on a boy, right? "Awwww loooook! Little Dekyra is getting her boobies, just stole her first car, and just got shot at by the MAN for the first time, Awwwwwww!

Well with a mother like that it's no surprise how she turned out.

Maybe that was the only way they could get the girl away from that wackjob.

It's almost certainly not a 10 year prison sentence. It is in all likelihood 10 years of supervision, including up to (IIRC) 2 years in a juvenile lockup and lots of home detention, ankle monitoring, and probation.

I think it should of been more time for the little criminal.

+1 on the sentiment that this is much too harsh.

10 years for a 12 year old? All we are doing is making a future miscreant who will murder.

This 12 year old would be better served being placed into a new family that can raise her properly.

The bad thing is most of those juvey lockup programs are just a college course for bigger crimes. No doubt it's the mom's fault.

I guess we should just release her back to the custody of her loving concerned mother then?

Bravo for the sentence. Street-smart kids know that they can pull stuff like she did and there will be no consequences. Also, mom should have been placed in the slammer for her terroristic threats.

First things first. I highly doubt that she will be spending ANY time in jail, let alone 10 years. I mean she is only 12. Sounds more like juvi-hall, followed by some type of probation and, suspended sentence.

Lets not forget she did steal a car, hit 2 sheriffs office vehicles, and was eluding police. This was not some sunday joy ride.

I think the name dekyra and the actions of her mother pretty much sum up the problem all together.

Know what I mean.
Link Posted: 8/5/2005 6:33:10 AM EDT
After reading the full account of the incident, I find it interesting that she fled from police. She obviously knew what she was doing was wrong or she feared the police in general.

Either way, as others have mentioned, she did more than just go for a joyride.

The mother should have been jailed for making the threats.

If the little girl was trying deliberately to run over the officers then she got what she deserved , 12 years old or not.
If she just couldn't handle the car *more likely* then she got screwed, ten fucking years for being a stupid 12 year old?

To harsh. What would you do. Release her back into the jungle that is the ghetto where she grew up. God forbid someone commits a crime in this country and actually gets punished for it.

It could be worse, in other countries they cut off your hands for stealing, why, so you can't do it again.

" All we are doing is making a future miscreant who will murder" what do you think will happen when she's allowed to steal cars unchallenged? I don't think this will lead to college, or a life time as a productive member of society, do you?

The alternative, leaving her with the mom, wouldn't be agreeable either, at this time. They both just might have anger and behavior problems that lead to things like this. Justice is rarely perfect.

I don't think we'd have any trouble putting a 12 year old boy in Juvenile Hall for the same thing.

10 years seems a little excessive, especially when compared with Hollywood style justice.

Lock 'em up...stiffer sentences for juvinile offenders might keep a few more thugs off the streets, at least for a little while. I thought they had to release juvi perps when they turned 18? That's part of the problem right off the bat. They should just send 'em straight to adult prison from juvi.
Link Posted: 8/5/2005 6:51:37 AM EDT
I would have passed a sentence of a very painful whooping, public embarrasment and much hard labor. Lots of time to think about what she did. However, I would not imprison a 12 YO child. Thats not the solution to the problem. IMO, it will only compound it. She'll come out of prison so messed up that she'll be a public burdon here entire life.

Good point Pangea. WHERE IS THE FATHER?


But maybe get her away from the household she is in. Maybe ten years will get her half a chance in this world. You never know.

They should have jailed the mom. Come on folks, it's post 9/11 and I thought we took those kind of threats seriously.

But this is what happens where there is a lax policy in the household when it comes to parenting.

Just my .02.

Have you ever seen inside or dealt with the Juvenile Justice System? Particularly in Florida? Sje's not getting a true prison sentence.

Miscreant: one who behaves criminally or viciously. This "sweet girl" stole a car, ran from police, and used a car as a weapon against two cops. Nobody would have any sympathy if she killed a deputy or other civilian on her spree of criminal mischief.....and it sounds like dumb luck she didn't. I'll wager this wasn't her first criminal act either......probably just the first time she's been caught.

I won't shed a tear.
