From our mailbox:
I just wanted to share something that happened to us today.Our group of homeschooling moms was forced to leave the state park we were at because a 7-year-old child was lost and the responding police officers thought the remaining children were not being "properly" supervised, even though they were within our sightlines and aiding in the search for their friend.We were berated for our parenting, threatened, and forced out of the park with the children. When we asked for badge numbers, the mom of the lost child was then issued a summons as retaliation. We can't even find where to file a complaint or if it safe to do so. We were accused of neglect. The lost child was removed from his bike and had it loaded into a police vehicle prior to being found by his mother, and he was held there by police who were angry that he wouldn't get in the car. They then refused to turn him over to his mother without following mom and children all the way over to the original location (where the main group was being berated by other officers) until she showed him identification.I just wanted to share that.S.
