Police Cite Middle Schooler for Stealing Two Cookies
What's the proper response to a child that steals two cookies? Can it really be calling the police to issue her a citation?
Police cited a [14-year-old female]Bethlehem middle school student for stealing two cookies worth 50 cents from the cafeteria at the request of one of the student's parents, school officials said today.
True, she was on suspension for having stolen candy from a teacher's desk, and it was her parent who asked the school to call in the police, but this doesn't seem to me to be appropriate intervention.
