Should Texas Cops Be Giving Tickets to 6-Year-Olds?
What crimes are being committed in kindergarten?
Disrupting class. Fighting. Misbehaving on the school bus.
In the past, these actions would mean a trip to the principal's office. Today, however, "such misbehavior results in a Class C misdemeanor ticket and a trip to court for thousands of Texas students and their families each year," according to the story, quoting a document called the Appleseed Texas report.
But this can't be happening a lot, right? Well ... Yahoo! News claims "1,000 tickets to elementary school children in 10 school districts" over a period of six years.
Ouch. Seems a little extreme? What do you think?
