I have always thought that parents cause a lot of the problems for cops. We had this guy last night, all "spun" (street talk for methamphetamine). He almost got shot, because he was carrying a fake gun which looked real.
He had this with him to protect himself from the invisible demons he saw only when high. After arresting him, we talked to his "girlfriend." She was 17. He was 37. That is bad enough, but when we called her dad to come pick her up from her home several hundred miles away, he was totally cool with this.
"Kids do stuff, officer." This kid "stuff" was taking a greyhoud buss 200 miles to spend the night at a cheap ass motel with her 37 y.o. boyfriend. I wonder what her chances are of coming out a model citizen?
