Dr. Phil has a disturbing and interesting episode August 19, 2014, with a woman named Stephanie saying her 16-year-old stepson Bill has been in a gang for more than year, robbing people at gunpoint and selling drugs. Bill is from a privileged family, but he’s involved in a bunch of illegal activity, apparently just for the thrill rather than to survive. Can Dr. Phil get through to Bill and help him see that he’s out of control and need to stop?
Dr. Phil: Out Of Control Teenager
Stephanie is certain her 16-year-old stepson Bill has been in a gang for more than a year and that he’s witnessed a murder. She’s afraid for the safety of her family. She claims the family has tried their best to straighten out Bill’s life, but Bill won’t cut off his affiliation with the gang.
Bill’s father Jeremy and mother Gina say they don’t want to know the extent of Bill’s illegal activity, but they are aware that he’s involved in some bad things.
Dr. Phil: Has This Teen Killed Someone Before?
Dr. Phil will ask a question he’s never asked a teenager before: has he killed someone? The preview promises that the answer to this question leaves everyone speechless, which leads me to suspect we’re in for a wild ride on Dr. Phil August 19, 2014.
Bill claims he’d do anything for his “brothers”, whether that means getting locked up or dying for them. He says being in the gang gives him a feeling of power.
Dr. Phil will have Bill talk to two former gang members who turned their lives around, who each have an important message for Bill. And former prosecutor and CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin will weigh in on the risks Bill is taking for his future and his safety.
