This is how law officers used to be when I was a child. If you got caught involved in mischief they scared the poop out of you and took you the one
place that you did not want to go to be punished; home.
If the police brought you home you had better believe that you would receive a punishment from your parent s that you would not easily forget.
I was very lucky, or not, because my parents did not believe in spankings. My father said that a spanking was over too quick and was too easy to
forget, so he devised creative punishments like chopping a winter's worth of wood, spending the whole weekend on your knees washing, waxing, and hand
buffing the hard wood floors.,
Trust me he was very good at finding the odd, labor-intensive job that gave you plenty of time to reflect on your indiscretion and make you think long
and hard before repeating your offense.
The law enforcement officers were, neighbors, friends, and leaders. They were respected because they cared about their community, their job and their
Too much has changed and we all lose.
