Look Ma, No Hands!

An 18-year old who has been diagnosed as bi-polar and schizophrenic, among other things, approached Texas police and told them he had a foot in his bag. He showed the body part to police, then rode along to show them the grave he dug up. Police found a small hatchet inside the bag with the foot, and a shovel at the scene of the crime.

The teen's parents say "he has no control over his mind" and have no intentions of bailing him out. In fact, his mother, who spoke to reporters, told them her child should not be free, as she feared he would hurt himself or someone else. She said he refuses to take his medication, and he cannot take care of himself, but authorities keep releasing him.

Police reports show the teen was recently arrested for "terroristic threats" he made to a shopkeep a few months back. He said he would "blow up the building and kill everyone in it," then threatened to beat the man up if he saw him again.

The troubled teen faces one count of desecration, which could land him up to one year in jail, plus a fine.
