Didn't happen here. Happened in Baltimore, Maryland. Three boys, ages seven, eight and eleven, were arrested for stealing from a neighbor's yard. The kids were caught in the act.
If you missed it on the news, watch this [for whatever reason the video won't let me embed it - even though the code is there].
Right off the bat - out of one of the children's mouth - a lie. Steve Doocy asks the eight-year-old, "Did you steal something out of the neighbor's yard?" The kid says "No." And then has to be prompted by his mother "not to lie." The kid is going to be a felon in no time.
Do I think two children should have been hauled off away in hand-cuffs? Probably not. I don't think they should have been kept in a holding cell for several hours, either. But the kids - all three of them - definitely have to learn that actions have consequences. They need to have their little butts hauled before some juvenile court, that is for sure. And there has to be a punishment.
We can count on a lawsuit. Police will have to defend themselves against a senseless suit. The court system will, yet again, be tied up for a frivolous suit, at the expense of taxpayers. You just know these women are seeing dollar signs.
