The Police are Out of Control...

But, this has nothing to do with Ferguson…

High School Student Arrested for Killing Dinosaur

A 16-year-old Summerville High School student says he was arrested Tuesday morning and suspended
after writing about killing a dinosaur using a gun.

Alex Stone said he and his classmates were told in class to write a few sentences about themselves, and a "status" as if it was a Facebook page.

Stone said in his "status" he wrote a fictional story that involved the words "gun" and "take care of business."

Can't we all just get along...
"I killed my neighbor's pet dinosaur, and, then, in the next status I said I bought the gun to take care of the business," Stone said.

...Summerville police officials say Stone's bookbag and locker were searched on Tuesday, and a gun was not found.

According to Gray, Stone was suspended for the rest of the week. Gray says she is furious that the school did not contact her before her son was arrested.

...Stone was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. District officials say the student has been suspended.

Disorderly Conduct? How about arresting the teacher with Creating a Mountain out of a Mole Hill? Or better yet, fire those cops.

Mom Arrested After Allowing 7-Year-Old Son To Go To Nearby Park Alone

A mother faces a charge of child neglect after she allowed her son to go to a local park alone. She says he's old enough but Port St. Lucie Police disagree. Now she's fighting back.

It's a half mile from their Port St. Lucie home. Dominic says it only takes him about 10 to 15 minutes to get there.  During the walk, the 7-year-old passed a public pool. Someone there asked him where his mom was.

"They asked me a couple questions and I got scared so I ran off to the park and they called the cops," says Dominic Guerrisi.

"He just basically kept going over that there's pedophiles and this and that and basically the park wasn't safe and he shouldn't be there alone," says Gainey.

Gainey plans to fight the felony charge. But after this she won't let Dominic go to the park alone. She's afraid she'll be arrested again.

The St. Lucie County State's Attorney's office says there is no law that specifies how old a child has to be before he or she can go somewhere unsupervised.

The mom is afraid to send the kid to the park…because the police might arrest him.  Send these cops to Ferguson.

Insanity.

Pure insanity.

If common sense falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a sound when it screams in anguish over human stupidity?

Some people need a life, and let us live ours.

OMG!! How old were you when I left you home alone? I am going to be looking over my shoulder. But I agree, 7 is too young to be out on the streets alone these days.
