None of this really changes the fact that this is a hidden tax--never mind that it's a new implementation of the control grid. It has nothing
to do with truancy. We've always had truancy, and there have always been methods of dealing with truancy. This is about money and
I agree and disagree......There is no doubt that our governments (state and local) are strapped for cash and that the police are being used to create
revenue and fill the prisons for companies like CCA......That I will say is true. However, I am seeing this as forcing parents to accept come
responsibility in the actions of the offspring!
Let me ask you this, "What do you think should be done with kids who refuse to go to school?"!!! I know there are parents who try but their kids do
whatever they want. In that case, don't you think tuff love is in order? I mean by God if my kids are costing me money and just don't give a damn
about consequences for their actions, then I would think they need a taste of what happens to adults who break the law!
Then on the other hand, you have parents with the attitudes that "outa site outa mind", "I'll buy them whatever they want so they stay the hell
out of my face!", then you have parents who do nothing more than breed children into this world and expect everyone else to be responsible for
raising their kids!!!!
I guess it is just better to let them grow up as greedy little, self serving idiots who believe the world owes them??? Or that by them learning it is
okay to be individuals and break the law, that prison is going to rehabilitate them so that they can better fit into society????
What the hell? Kids need to learn responsibility in life and that there are consequences for making wrong choices! I would rather see them learn this
fact early on in life than end up being put into prison and come out worse off than when they went in..........
