A couple was late arriving home, so their 11 year old boy waited for them and entertained himself playing in the family’s yard. This might sound like an unremarkable story, except the cops were called by some sicko busybody neighbor (some people get their jollies siccing the authorities on others), and the result?

Felony charges were filed against the parents, and both of their children were taken away for a month!

The boy didn’t have a key, so he played basketball in the yard. He was alone for 90 minutes. A neighbor called the cops, and when the parents arrived—having been delayed by traffic and rain—they were arrested for negligence.

They were put in handcuffs, strip searched, fingerprinted, and held overnight in jail.

It would be a month before their sons—the 11-year-old and his 4-year-old brother—were allowed home again. Only after the eldest spoke up and begged a judge to give him back to his parents did the situation improve.

What is going on in this country? These kinds of stories are becoming routine.

No wonder the voters are angry.

I have not researched it, but I’d be willing to bet that the tyrannical law which nearly ruined an innocent family was bipartisan.
