The police took these kids into custody and called Child Protective Services! CPS held them for hours! No one called their parents! What the freak? That’s called kidnapping in my book!
The parents have a right to sue. I doubt if they will win because our human rights-especially as parents-are slowly being taken away. Stories like this undermines a parents trust not only in themselves but also in the system that’s suppose to protect us.
When the Anchorwoman says “we have become more conservative…” a better word would be “FEARFUL”. We are so fearful of the authorities that we don’t trust (or develop) our parenting instincts. Instead we run our children to the doctor with the slightest sniffle. We medicate our children when they mention a pain. We don’t allow them to learn necessary skills and therefore grow confident about their ability to navigate in the world; hence we have grown children living in their parent’s basement, playing video games with a minimum wage job and a college degree. We are FEARFUL and we are raising FEARFUL adults. Free range parenting is NOT neglect.
What was neglectful was the police detaining the children and NOT calling their parents! I agree with The Mirev’s attorney; sue the County for harassment.
