You know what? These bad motherfucker parents should be in jail because they are absolute SHIT parents.
On a recent Saturday afternoon, a 10-year old Maryland boy named Rafi and his 6-year old sister, Dvora, walked home by themselves from a playground about a mile away from their suburban house. They made it about halfway home when the police picked them up.
Two kids got busted, the police took them home, then the parents verbally abused the cops:
Someone saw the kids walking without an adult and called the police. The police tracked down the kids and drove them home. The hitch* this time is, when the police got there, they discovered that they were meddling with the wrong family.
*They were all white so nobody got shot.
These parents should be in FUCKING JAIL.
First, they say they practice Free-Range parenting, which is a FUCKED UP METAPHOR. Because that means you refuse to factory-murder your children: you will only murder and eat your children after you let them have some exercise. WHAT THE FUCK.
Second, look, I'm a parent. Are you a parent? No? THEN SHUT YOUR FUCKING PIE HOLE. If you are not a parent you can't even TALK. Just because you had a parent and were perhaps parented in some fashion, that only puts you in the MINORITY. FUCK. YOU. APPARENTLY YOU are NOT A PARENT.
THIRD SAID. I said THIRD SAID. YES obviously if you let your children walk home from the park you are a subhuman monster. Speaking as a parent, these parents are just unbelievable garbage:
For starters, teach your children to walk to the playground alone.
I call bullshit on this story, by the way.
There's a lot that smells fishy. It's utterly one-sided; the police had no time to respond, and CPS, quite properly, is not allowed by law to comment on specific cases. (Did you think social service agencies have PR people on staff capable of responding swiftly and with precision to very specific WaPo queries? Maybe they do!)
Who turned them in?
Cops really won't and don't stop kids from walking around -- but someone might like to pretend they do...
