Who is responsible for delinquent kids? "ABC News" correspondent John Stossel gathers opinions in the debate over accountability for a child's delinquent actions. He talks with parents, children, teens, and the presiding judges who hand down rulings on where exactly to place the blame. Addresses suits against parents for alleged criminal negligence in cases of school shootings, underage drinking and drug use, DWI-related deaths involving minors, and acts of violence. Originally broadcast as a segment of the television program "20/20."
