What The . . . ?

"A 5 1/2-year veteran deputy with the Hood County Sheriff’s Department is facing a three- to five-day suspension without pay following the “overzealous” treatment of two juveniles in an incident Nov. 22. Jim Scroggins did not violate any department policy by handcuffing the boys, ages 11 and 12, but he did show a lack of respect toward the juveniles, said sheriff Gene Mayo. The 2 Granbury boyswere detaines, for an alleged burglary in Rock Harbor, a Granbury Subdivision." (Source)

Who cares if he didnt handle them with respect, they new what they were doing and they knew it was wrong. When i was 11 and 12 (which has just been one or two years back) I knew it was wrong. I won't show any burglar any respect at all because he or she is a low down dirty rotten person. You ought to give them a couple of years in jail and maybe that will turn there lives around, no matter what their age.

I would think some severe handling for criminal behavior might make some impression on these young kids. Treat them humanely and within the law - but with only the respect they have earned.

What is today's society coming to? Juvenile's filing complaints about being hancuffed for being and idiot and burglarizing something. If I was the Deputy, I would tell the Sheriff to get bent. Just like adult offenders, how did the Deputy not know that the juveniles were not armed or dangerous. Oh I forget, juveniles don't carry guns, shoot at people, kill people, etc. It is 2005 you know. Good job to the deputy. And a final thought, I am sure that the parents were pretty pissed because the juveniles got hancuffed, and their precious little growing pieces of crap just couldn't do that sort of thing.

When women and children run the show, male authority/corporal punishment is outlawed, social apocalypse looms.

2:00, Respect of authority is lacking among many groups of people. Nevertheless, remind me again...what is the predominant gender and age of those overflowing from our nation's prisons?

Bingo, Anon 3:34, no one could have said it better. As for Anon 2:00, what a perfect example of male insecurity and a male who thinks with an anatomical part other than the brain and is not very well educated. After all, a cursory review of world history over the last 1000 years would clearly reflect that "social apocalypse"(a mighty big word for such a small mind)in history occured solely at the hands, or as a result of,"male authority". Thank goodness most others of your gender are a little more secure in their masculinity. I look forward to a radical "social apocalypse" where all people, irrespective of gender, race, or religion, respect each other, respect each others differences, and choose to get along. Viva la difference! Merry Christmas to all!

Maybe the deputy didn't speak softly and gently to them as he handcuffed them!

9:33 My goodness! I suppose you think you've put me in my place in addition to helping to make the world a safer place to live. The world is really little different from 1000 years ago. An educated mind would realize that. As far as my shallow mind goes, I have plenty of degrees, my dear, as well as a doctorate in philosophy. Once again, the irate female mouth opens prior to engaging the mind. Oh well, how can you expect rationality from a being who undergoes massive hormonal changes every 28 days? I forgive you. Listen and learn.

well i guess we just make iyt more clearer to those who want to break the law that as long as you are under the age of 17 you can get away with murder what ever happened to the saying that if you do the crime that you must do the time i say we start use a cane and giving these youngesters a good whooping after they are convicted as for the deputy in this case good job i think your boss should do his job and not be partital to any one group
