I think people are being a little too sensitive. I'm pretty sick and twisted, and I didn't think this was bad at all.

Everyone assumes the kids were alone, that they didn't want to do it, and that the guy was a heartless bastard. I delivered papers for a year when laid off from my regular job. My kids, who would have been slightly younger than these, begged to go along because they wanted to spend time with me and help. They were never forced to go. I'd carry the papers and deliver on one side of the street. They'd take a handful of papers and deliver the other side. We'd meet back up at the corner. They were never more than 200 feet away and were always within sight.
As for the whining about 2am... Time is relative. It's entirely possible that these kids had a very early bedtime so that they got plenty of sleep. Not everyone exists on an 8am-5pm job cycle.
