I was just listening to an amazing discussion on WTOP, about mothers who had been charged with felony child neglect for letting their children play in the park. Callers were saying that it isn’t safe to let children do anything by themselves.
The argument from law enforcement seems to boil down to the idea that a child is better off without a mother, than playing games in the park with their friends.
Why don’t progressives just declare all activities to be illegal, other than abortion and gay sex? Those seem to be the only two activities which progressives consider to be safe for children. The Constitution clearly states that it is illegal for children or their parents to pursue Life, Liberty or the Pursuit of Happiness.
