... I think it is the enabling nature of today's society that is the problem being shown in this story.
As parents, we sometimes have to be the thunder that shakes their world to the foundations just as we sometimes have to be the kind encouragement that holds the door open for them to access the world as we forge them into good, loving adults....

She evaded a police officer, that's a big no no, she could actually face charges for that. When a cop tells you to stop, or whatever and you go running then yes you can be charged for it, and even be shot in some situations. This how it has always been, even for minors. I doubt she'll be charged with anything, since this incident occured.

TUCUMCARI, N.M. -- Tucumcari's police chief has been placed on paid administrative leave after a Taser incident last week involving a teenage girl
Tucumcari City Manager Bobbye Rose said the move to place police Chief Roger Hatcher on administrative leave was by "mutual agreement."
Hatcher said he shot Taser darts at the 14-year-old girl on Thursday during a domestic dispute between the girl and her mother.
Stacy Akin said she and her daughter, Kailee Martinez, were arguing over a cell phone Thursday and she drove her daughter to the Tucumcari Police Department to seek help.
While in front of police headquarters, Martinez ran off and was later found at a park by Hatcher. Hatcher said when he tried to talk to Martinez she ran into traffic without looking.
Hatcher said he used the stun gun because he didn't know where Martinez might go and he had to stop her.
