Thanks bywarren. You are right. I am on the side of the law. The police often disappoint, for they are only human too. But certainly this situation will be investigated and the police officers involved will be sanctioned if they are proven to have committed such abuse.
I see the daily frustrations of a society that is still trying to get things worked. And if nations such as the might USA, the UK or Mexico cannot manage to get a handle on drug abuse and neglect, domestic abuse, child pornographic, human trafficking, street gangs etc I do fear that our infant nation will be toiling for a few more decades to get it figure out.
Behavior, good or bad, loving or abusive, starts at home. Then it spills out onto our streets, into our schools and mingles in all walks of our society.
San Pedro is taking steps to combat the situations at the root. We finally have a community social worker, in conjunction with community police, the schools and private sector groups such as AA, and of course our religious organizations we will have to stop allowing our kids get led astray and wonder down the wrong paths.
