Making Maryland a more dangerous place

The Police Chief gave a Press Conference to give an update three days in; the Mayor and School Board Super was in attendance. The video is in excess of 44 minutes on Youtube. As the Chief of Police stated as he heard, “What the facts are, what the law supports will determine whether there will be charges to the parent.”

The child has some problems, obviously. When an attempt was made to restrain him, he struck a teacher twice in defiance. This is problematic. But the investigation is ongoing.

In the interim, the child is under an Order of Detention and is receiving “service.” Just what this “service” entails is left with those providing it, but the parent now has legitimately lost all authority to even protest. And that’s sad. There is enough tragedy short and long term for all concerned. We’ll just have to wait and see how everything shakes out.
