The Star-Telegram's Watchdog Gets Arrested

Sounds like he did something stupid (he even admits that), but I'm not sure an arrest and charges are warranted. Heck, just have CPS bang on his door and chew him out - that should be enough. But like I wrote about a few days ago in exasperation, everything is a big deal these days. Everything requires a law enforcement response.

"child abandonment/endangering a child"

OK, so you are a McDonalds executive/owner. What are you thinking when you read that statement?

Double Fake Big Mac

He used to be a democrat and sold out a long time ago in Keller :(

Is McDonalds a dangerous place for an 11 year old??? I see children that age and younger walking to and from school in neighborhoods with McDonalds?? Sounds to me like some police officers jumped the gun. Should have thought about it a little more.

I dumped my two boys aged 9 and 11 out of the truck one day for acting like asses. we were about 3 miles from the house. I told them which way it was and drove off. I went back 15 minutes later and they had straightened up their act and made about a mile of progress. Thank you very much, Nanny Sam, I don't need you to tell me how to raise my kids.

"Left his 11-year-old son at a Watauga McDonald's restaurant after the two argued".

I am so thankful that no one ever busted me for tying my 11 year old son to an oak tree. I'm not the the one with the duct tape either. He sure as heck deserved it, and eventually, he grew up to be a really good son.

Naw, I didn't really do that, but I was darned well tempted. I would really have to get to know that guy before I made a harsh decision about it, knowing how evil little boys can be at times.

I dumped my 9 and 11 yr old boys out of the truck once for acting like asses. We were about three miles from the house. I told them which way it was and drove off. I returned about 15 minutes later and they had straightened up and made about a mile of progress. Thank you very much, Nanny Sam, I don't need you helping me raise my boys. That job might call for a little tough love occasionally.

I like re-writing my comments from memory just to see how close I can get to the original.

I like writing my comments a second time after sending the first just to see if I still think the same thing 10 minutes later. Sort of wards off alzheimers.

How far will our liberal mindset go.....we reward parents for not raising kids with values and punish them when they try to teach the kid a valuable lesson.

I've quit trying to make sense of it all.

Lieber's an interesting guy. He wrote a great column in the Telegram a few years back about HD Boswell, just after he passed away. It was great!

Maybe if parents could discipline their children in public without CPS being called things like this would stop. If you look at your child crossed eyed now days, the person sitting next to you is calling CPS faster than McDonald's can cook a Big Mac. I am not saying he was right, I don't agree with it at all, BUT maybe his son needed some displine

Perfect example of the police state we live in now. Conservatives call it a nanny state, I call it a police state because the nanny isn't the one that shows up with a warrant.

Bad parenting? Possibly. A crime? No way. The Watauga PD needs to quit grandstanding and let the Lieber's get on with their lives.

Dave is a good guy who made a poor decision. How many of us parents can honestly say we didn't do the same during the raising of our children? I hope it works out for them.

Damn I hope my neighbors dont call the cops on me cause I tell my kids if they dont get in the car I am leaving them where they are, same as throwing a fit about coming in and everything else. I even close the doors and lock them and if it is in the car I start to drive away.....they are to young to actually leave them. The others the older ones, I would put out and let them walk home.

This reminds me of my childhood. My mom put my sister and me out on the side of the highway one day because we wouldnt stop fighting in the back seat. Still to this day if we are bickering in her car and she slows down we shut up.

I miss Boswell. We need more people like him that are willing to stand up against the system. He had some great ideas, to bad the Messenger tried to keep him quiet. I always wanted to meet him and shake his hand for what he tried to do.

If anyone over at the Messenger had any balls they would hold our elected officials accountable instead dogging anyone who criticizes the system.

"Argue" with an eleven year old my ass! There's no argueing, we can discuss it. If he wants to argue he can go outside and argue with a tree. A certain body part hasn't even dropped on that kid yet and he wants to argue? I believe Dad and Son need to get some things worked out in a relativly calm manner. Moreover he probably needs to remind the little guy of "who's driving the bus here".

Isn't the Watauga PD the same ones who accused that kid of cooking Baked cookies a couple of months ago? If so, avoid Watauga!!!!!

Anonymous said...

no 8:11 the kid lived in Watauga, Lake Worth is the one that accused him of the cookies.

Yep, at worse, it's a (mild) CPS case, not a crime. And I'm a judge! Pretty stupid over-reacting here, and I agree with Barry as to the "everything is a big deal" trend nowadays. Another further development in the "politically correct" crap.

Sorry, you can't tell your child to walk his smart ass home anymore.
