Such as an out of control, disrespectful teenager whos parents use the local police as a scare tactic to make up for their lack of parental responsability. I am so angered over such abuse of our system that I felt strongly about sharing my opinion.
So my children will miss dinners with both mommy and daddy, will have either parent absent from most activities, holidays with grandma, and missing bedtime stories and kisses while their daddy is out babysitting a spoiled result of poor parenting. I guess in a way, thats better then the unknown of a home invasion or fear of being shot during a traffic stop. In all seriousness, the men and women of public saftey spend years on training, education and make so many sacrifices so that people that feel (and I quote) "we pay their salaries with our tax dollars so I have every right to use them as an avaliable resource" can enjoy those same moments that we wish we could have with our kids.
My children use this phrase when asked where mommy or daddy are..."someone needs my mommy and daddy to keep them safe tonight because they are scared so for that I will share mommy and daddy with them because I know they love me no matter where they are tonight.
