Can I sue the police for not returning my 16 year old runaway son. They have know who has been harboring him, and have just not done so! Even though they have known he has been in a group abusing drugs and alcohol. He was just the other day taken by 2 adult (meth heads) at gunpoint! assuaulted, savagely beaten (had his teeth kicked out) requiring dental surgery! and robbed! And they still have not picked him up and returned him to me him legal guardian so I can get him in some sort of treatment!!!! Can I sue them!!! This is all taken place in rural Missouri.
