My God people, have you gone mad? The POLICE are NOT supposed to be used for purposes like this. So WHAT if the mother called them? They should have
told her to call social services if she cannot handle her kid and doesn't want him anymore.
The LAW is NOT supposed to be used for purposes other than as written and intended by the legislature; That is what judges always decide, what the
legislators intended and NOT what might make a kid listen to his Mom. The cops should NOT have charged thew kid because: The present was GIVEN to him:
The fact that he disobeyed a RULE, not a LAW, means that he should have been disciplined by his Mom, but NOT arrested by the cops on a phony ' petty
larceny ' charge, which WILL be dismissed.
The LAW is NOT supposed to be used to get people, especially kids, in front of a judge. If the Mom is so weak that she cannot handle the kid, she
should give him up. But to allow the cops to deal with this undermines the law, the system and the courts. The charge can NEVER stick; any lawyer, and
OUR tax money will now pay for an attorney to represent the kid, will get this thrown out immediately. It is an illegal arrest. There was NO probable
cause to believe that the kid thought he was stealing; his intent was NOT to steal, and the INTENT is the heart of PROBABLE CAUSE.
You folks that cheer when the pig's get more and more involved in our personal lives I pray will have cause to regret your beliefs; when you call a
cop to do the job of a parent, it is WRONG. It is an INSULT to the law to use a statute meant for thieves to harrass and punish a small child who
merely opened a present early: Mom should have taken the presnt back, at the worst, as a lesson. Depending on pig's to take the place of common sense
parenting is just another insane step to complete police control over all aspects of our lives.
Some of ytou are saying" It is Ok to abuse the intent of the law because Mom was fed up". Thats insane. You also are saying " The rule of law
means nothing, it can be bent and changed so cop's can do anything they want to step in and solve problems THEIR way". Thats insane as well.
Cop's CANNOT be trusted to make decisions that are ion the best interests of the people: They make decisions that are in the interest of themselves
and their bosses. In this case, a couple of stupid pig's decided to actually BREAK the law by FALSELY CHARGING a child with THEFT when they know that
the child had NO INTENT of THEFT whatsoever. THAT is where the line is drawn. The LAW is being MISUSED and that is a bad thing, every time. It cannot
be justified, not by people who invite the cops to break the law, and not by those who think that the law should be used as a hammer to beat people
This is another sickening example of people who trust the cops and who know nothing about the foundations of the law and the critical importance of
keeping the law above nonsense like this. The cops were wrong, the Mom was wrong, and those of you who believe that using the law improperly and
illegally to ' get attention ' are wrong. You want attention for a kid? Then call the proper agency and you will get it; just do NOT call the
cop's: All they know is ' lock em up'..that is the extent of their ' counseling ' abilities, and that is NOT what is needed in family
I am shocked that anyone could defend violating the intent of the law to placate some frustrated mom..there are legal ways to get help...this is NOT
one of them..shame on you for thinking that this is Ok..illegal and improper..why not charge him with grand theft and resisting arrest also..I mean,
if charges are phony and will be dropped, why not pile em on?? Ridiculous..sickening..stupid..cops should stay out of family beefs and stop violating
the intent of the law and their authority.
