Okay this is just stupid, a Georgia mom was arrested because her son (who had all As and Bs) had 3 to many unexcused absences at school.

Why is arresting mom even an option, and how does it solve any problems? If the kid has all As and Bs and is on the honor roll he is obviously keeping up and getting his education. So why does it matter how many days he misses? Who does it hurt? And why the F@@@@ would mom have to go to jail?

Sometimes it seems like I live in a different country then the one I grew up in....

the people who never went to school are now running the show and are now closing all the loop holes to minimize the competition in the future

Wow...

Followed the link and saw a white chick...sorry, but this is a non-story.

Next time make sure a minority is involved.

I understand your title is taken from the source, at least one of them but neither article states she was shackled. Agreed that it is a little on the absurd side or a lot on the absurd side but so is the source sensationalizing their title to get more hits. It is basically all about the money as I am sure there are court cost involved and some sort of fine.

from the 1st source


“I am home. I was actually placed in ankle shackles!! I was told that doing so is procedure. I was respectful and followed directions. Sheriff Mike Kile allowed me to leave after being booked and photographed without having to call a bondsman. I will call tomorrow to get my court date. Thanks for the support!!” Giles wrote to WTOC when she returned home.

now on to the student being absent. if your going to enforce the unexcused absence rule for one then all should have to follow it regardless of grades.

If there is any truth to this story it would be a sure sign of authority overstepping its mark.....

Crazy world we live in....

while this is disturbing like the "free laptop so we can watch your kids in thier bedrooms" story a while back was disturbing, it's good to see she wasn't thrown in the back of the paddy wagon
and given the nickel ride

I wish we lived in the normal world again.

Parents should be livid, and I'd bring back tar and feathering for mayors, police chiefs, school boards and city counsel. Or introduce them to it.

He'd be homeschooled and I'd get PI's on all of them to dig up all their dirty laundry and have them destroyed. Would also organize so that in the end, no pension, no job, no dental. Thats what you get for being a fascist psycho and overstepping your limits.

Damn, America has gone totally insane! Comment on the article mentioned she needed to Home School, maybe so.

Public school (and I know all about it) isn't worth this kind of BS.... EVER.

After the child graduates said public school, his parent/parents won't be able to afford college in America anyway without (student loans). Debt. Oh wait, that's what the system wants.

What America is coming to.

What?

Insanity. I used to miss 20-30 days a year. I took off nearly every Tuesday unless I took off Monday and Wednesday instead and still had enough credits to graduate a year early. High School was boring.

Yeah, I was in the Principles office a few times but arresting people is insane.

That's one way to control the population--make having kids so much of a godawful damn pain in the ass that no one wants to do it anymore.

Who needs this kind of liability?

I can't get the wfsb site to load and the other article is a huge POS. How old is the kid? My opinion is going to be swayed a bit by the age.

Not a fan of Facebook journalism.
