The Rachel Canning case keeps getting messier because now the parents of her boyfriend have decided to come forward to The Daily Mail in defense of their son who Sean and Elizabeth Canning blame for leading their daughter astray.This is just my opinion, but I think at this point maybe all the parents involved should just stop talking to the press and get their houses in order, but nobody has asked me. So, let’s see what the father of 18-year-old Lucas Kitzmiller has to say about his kid. From The Daily Mail:
My son has been painted in a questionable light by some of the comments from the Cannings.
You may remember from the article yesterday that one of the stipulations of Rachel moving back from was that her parents no longer wanted her to date her boyfriend, who they said she has gotten in all sorts of trouble with.
‘Their only experience of him is that he met the father long enough to shake hands. That’s the only interaction they have ever had. They made their decision about him from that.
‘If you read the court papers you can see the trend is with every boyfriend she’s had it’s always the boyfriend who’s the bad influence. We have been dragged into this.’
But since we are playing the They Said/We Said game let’s see what Rachel’s parents have said:
‘She (Rachel) was routinely bought home drunk by the Kitzmillers, well past her curfew…
‘In ignoring our very lenient rules and curfews, it became the normal fashion on weekends for Lucas’ father or mother to drive Lucas and Rachel home from whatever party they were able to find around the country.’
Referencing one particular incident, She said: ‘On that particular night Lucas’ father drove her home drunk and dropped her off at our home at 3.30am.’
I guess I can see where the parents of Lucas Kitzmiller want to defend their son, but by going to the press to discuss this they are just adding more fuel to this big dumb tabloid fire, both sets of parents are. It’s starting to feel like they are all sort of fame hungry and are hoping their kids get offered a reality show at this point.
Rachel’s parents don’t want her dating Lucas and think he is a bad influence? That is their prerogative. She is also 18 and legally an adult and can make up her own mind, but then she can’t expect to live at home and have her parents footing the bill for her life.
I really don’t get these people. Your daughter is, according to your beliefs as her parents, out of control. You tell her things need to change and she runs away from home. I should add she spent two nights at the Katzmiller home before moving in with her other friend who has parents paying her legal bills. Your daughter decides she deserves child support and sues you. Is it just me or do all these people need to go do a few years of volunteer work somewhere or spend a lot of time visiting a cancer ward so they understand what REAL problems are?
I’m sure these are all lovely people, and I will turn in when their reality TV shows starts coming this fall. I am joking, but it could easily happen.
