You Are Discussing: When the law doesn't obey?

This past week one of my daughter's friends ran away...well, within two days a city police along with the SRO at the high school questioned my daughter WITHOUT parental consent, any guidance couselors or even the principal or vice-principal (who did not know she was even questioned until the next day). Now my question is...what happens to a county whose police doesn't even obey constitutional rights of the youth. When I explained to the Chief that was wrong on the part of the officers, he only asked, "What if it was your daughter missing?" As much as I understand that, it DOES NOT give the police permission to ignore the law. The SRO is only allowed to question kids about anything that occurred at school, this one took my daughter out of class and took her to the policeman waiting to question her, a policeman that did not even check into the school or ask permission to talk to her. I realize there are alot of good things that go on in school, but WE MUST PROTECT OUR CHILDREN, even if it's from the law!!!!

Thank you...

YOU-AS A PARENT ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT-WE MUST PROTECT OUR CHILDREN-PERIOD. AS A MINOR-A PARENT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE. THEY VIOLATED CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS THAT WE HAVE AS AMERICANS. I WOULD BE SO ANGRY IF I WERE YOU. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE \\\"AMERICAN WAY?\\\" I HAVE A KIDDO THAT ATTENDS RUTLAND-I DARE A POLICEMAN-OR-A LAWYER TO TALK TO MY CHILD-W/OUT ME PRESENT. THAT IS MY CHILD. IF THAT HAPPENED TO ME-THERE WOULD BE A HUGE LAWSUIT. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. THE POLICE ARE THERE TO INFORCE THE LAW -NOT BREAK IT!!!! IN MOUNT JULIET, WE HAVE SO MANY GOOD MEN WORKIN\\\' ON THE POLICE FORCE,BUT, YET, A COUPLE OF BAD ONES. IT IS A SORRY SHAME THAT ONE TALKED TO A KIDDO W/ OUT A PARENT\\\'S CONSENT. THEY-OF ALL FOLKS-SHOULD KNOW THE LAW. THEY DO NOT LET US BREAK IT-TICKET US FOR 5 MILES OVER THE SPEED LIMIT-SO THEY,THEMSELVES SHOULD ABIDE BY IT-AND SET A GOOD EXAMPLE.

We MUST Protect Our Children. People will run over you if you let them. The "Squeaky Wheels" are the ones heard.
