    Marly,

    I think we need to hold parents accountable for their children and the police need to police and not act in loco parentis. Teachers need to teach and not be afraid of little johnny. How do we get there, well the saying it takes a village to raise a child holds a lot of truth to it.

    I knew as a child that my actions and behaviors would be reported to my mother and older siblings when they got home. That information would be given after whoever was doing the reporting explained why they kicked my butt. My mother would politely thank them and she would kick my butt too.

    If some of the folks back then disciplined a child now. They would be in jail. I don't know the right answer for the world but I do know what it is for my children!

    It sucks to be them as compared to what other children get away with. My older adult children when the were younger did not understand why their friends could do the things they did and get away with it. I was in their mind mean ole dad! Now, that they are older and the trio has two kids each of their own, they fully understand and appreciate my parenting skills.

    Everything that I did with them was done with love and the best intentions of raising a right thinking contribution to society.

    Children today have a dollar amount placed on their worth. It's not about them it is about the money that can be made from them.

    I don't like the Baker Act solution. A kid getting treated like a nut case will harden up faster and harder. I'm not sure what the solution is. In the olden days, kids were taught a lesson by parents who arranged them to do an over-nighter in the hoosegow. Cops sometimes served as "dutch uncles."

    Teen rebellion often springs out of a need to connect with the father. Father figures like cops can do a world of good in turning a life around. I know you know that my friend snhadley. With stats like you describe, you and your fellow officers must be doing a lot of that.

    But Baker Act? Now you have society telling a kid he's crazy in the head. Signed, sealed and delivered. He might be a kid who has a legitimate beef that needs to be addressed, like a drunken, violent parent.

    Like they say, half the kids in counseling are there because we can't get in the ones who need it.

    Or he might simply be going about the wrong way of handling a dangerous walk home in the dark - just like his classmates are doing. Now we call him a loony and tag him for life? There is no bigger exile than that!

    But in a Columbine Virginia Tech World, schools have become our most dangerous workplaces.

    What to do???

    Yeap, Juan it is a hand full! The admin can handle a lot of this stuff but they call us for stupid stuff like can you just put handcuffs on this kid or that kid to teach them a lesson and my response is always. Go buy you a set of cuffs and do it yourself. I am not the discipline police!

    Give Mr. Schuster my number girlfriend! I'll tell him like I told the Superintendant, FDLE, and the FBI. If you don't know by now, I am a MAN! Always was and always will be! You want to go to war? No PROBLEM, I'll take you there! Put a name behind your post, or name a place and time and we can have a face to face. I don't think you will!! As a matter of fact, I know you won't because that is what cowards do!

    Wow that is a huge district! Yeah sounds like Bs detaining for a knife. Some of that stuff should be handled administratively. Does admin have the legal right to make those calls? We have approximately 97000 and change and we stay busy. I can only imagine the workload you guys carry.

    Incidents are on the rise. We have emergency detention in Texas and since mandatory training last year we have had to detain more juveniles than ever that really meet the criteria.
