Legal Question

Asked on: 8/01/12, 7:49 am

The police showed up at my house accusing my son of spray painting a negative remark about Obama under a bridge. They told me some parents could not be left up to disciplining a child for some things and asked me repeatedly if I personally like Obama or not. I told them I did not care for Obama's politics but by no means encouraged my son to vandalize the area under the bridge nor to make such statements. The police woman suggest my son was soft and lived in a cushy neighborhood and told him those where fighting words. and acted as if he would be pitted against tougher kids with differing politics. The police woman then asked my son if he was involved and when he was hesitant I instructed my son to answer and he confessed. I feel totally violated As if I cannot discipline my son or condone this behavior because I am conservative. My son was turned over to my care but is no being charged and being put into the juvenile system.
