sounds like a jealous neighbor to me.. I played in the yard as a kid without supervision.. Ridiculous what our world has come to.. We should not live in fear!! Crazy stuff!
This is unbelievably absurd. I'm 58 and when I was the age of these kids, spent hours playing and hiking - sometimes a mile from home - with no adult supervision whatsoever. What is wrong with people today?
My 12 year-old son was suspended from school for 2 weeks after he exhibited "Excessive Risk-Taking Behavior", his crime? He climbed a tree!
Is the entire police department out of their ever lovin' minds? Child endangerment? Buffoons and dolts doesn't even come close!That officer should be shunned by all in the community. He shouldn't be allowed to even buy a stick of gum. Gibbering chimpanzees have more sense.
Cop needs to be fired, enough of this nanny state socialism.
When I was a kid me and my gang ran and played all over the neighbourhood. We rode around on our bikes. We climbed trees and fences. We played tag and hide and seek. All outdoors all without 'supervision'. Of course in those days moms were usually home and everyone knew each other. Front doors were not locked. It is wicked and cruel to keep kids indoors or under a totally tight rein all the time. It's an acclimatising technique. Good luck to the mom suing the police and let us all hope pray and take action to reverse this damaging and unnecessary state of affairs. Love to all.
I'm so sorry to hear of this happening to your son. How crazy! A boy! Climbing a tree!! I hope yr son will be able to climb as many trees as he wants. Our children are being prevented from enjoying themselves, exploring, discovering, learning about life. It's a crime. And suspending him from school! Why? Because he might set a bad example? Great Scott. I am in danger of forgetting my rule of avoiding anger. This is so ridiculous. I wish you lots of luck and hope there will be something in this experience which you can turn to the positive. Kind regards to you and your great son.
I don't think it's the cop you need to deal with but the policy and who is behind it. Obviously the police officer wasn't terribly bright. And what about the neighbour? Now there is a troubled person.
