Re: I Let My 4 Kids Play Outside, On a Sunny Saturday. The Cops Wrote Up a Report
About 10 years ago, my kids and the rest of the neighborhood kids were running around our street with brightly colored water guns. 2 girls and 7 boys all around 10 yrs old with water guns that were Hot Pink, Neon Green etc. 2 of the kids were the children of a local police officer. Some one called the cops saying there were teenagers running around with real guns. I could see the kids out the window so I saw when the police came and I walked out there. The kids were made to stop playing with the water guns in public, they had to be in one of the back yards.

i cleaned out my car once on a side street of a neighborhood where it connected to the main side of downtown and a cop literally parked and watched me clean out my car. WTF. our freedoms are being taken.

When i was a kid my mother would open the door at 8am and tell us all to get out and play. She then wouldn't see us all day.
 Quoting: Aunty Flo


I think it's been that way for most of human history. We did not hide in our homes in fear even during times of war.

This whole thing, this child worship thing, this for the saftey of the children thing, this - "the state has a vested interest" thing, it is the undoing of America.

President Ford warned us - but we still ignore the cause today. And we will ignore it tomorrow. Women and Men were estranged for this reason..

When he was forced to sigh the law into being - he voiced his belief that he was allowing the government to intrude into the bedrooms and families of Americans... he was right.

I wager not one person here can name that law...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1752472


Agreed.

There may have been recent break-ins or vandalism.

Besides, the "field adjacent to" the OP's house is obviously not the OP's property.

The children were on someone else's property, and the police officer had every right to ask them what they were doing there.

For all we know, the owner of the field may have complained about trespassers.
 Quoting: goodmockingbird


dear God, did you really just say that children playing in the open field are trespassers?

Really. What world did you grow up in. Certainly not the one I grew up in, that I am 100% sure of.

My curfew was the porch light.

My parents called my name, not my cell.

I played outside with friends, not online. And we were allowed out to play without our parents being there. We were even allowed out of their sight from morning till night.

If I didn't eat what was cooked for dinner, then I didn't eat.

Sanitizer didn't exist, but you COULD get your mouth washed out with soap.

I rode a bike without a helmet,

Getting dirty was ok, and

Neighbors LOVED YOU as much as your parents did....and they showed it by reprimanding you just like they would.

You didn't want to go home if you knew the teacher was going to call because your parents were going to punish you much worse than what the school could do. And there were no explanations or excuses.

And we drank water from a garden hose and survived
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1243271


OP here...this and more ten fold!
this is how i grew up as well.

and one last thing..
if a teen got out of line or in trouble the the police....
they would take them home...to the parents....
let me tell you that was always worse.

 Quoting: Robin Hood 21931416


When I was a kid on any given summer day we would rove around several adjacent neighborhoods in a pack of 4 or 5 kids on our bikes (sting rays with banana seats).

We'd start in the morning and go from one person's house to the next to the next and so on. One kid had a pool, another had a trampoline, another had the Twister game, I had a garden hose, a Slip and Slide, and grass, someone else had a basketball hoop above their garage, and another's mother would make us koolaid without fail whenever we visited.

When we's get bored we'd just hop back on our bikes and head into one of several expanses of desert that surrounded the neighborhoods and do a little more work on one of our our forts. We'd nail foot boards up the trunk of the biggest mesquite tree or gather old plank boards from the stray garbage here and there and build a seat up in the crux of the tree for a look-out.

At about this time we'd run into the other pack of kids that ran the same neighborhoods and engage in a bit of "I can do whatever you say better than you" talk. Then we'd all hop back on our bikes and try to pedal the fastest up to the Circle K convenience store on the corner to get a red and yellow bullet popsicle, a fugsicle, or a cherry icee. We'd pay with money from our allowance that was earned doing household chores like weeding, babysitting, washing the car, or cutting the grass.

It always felt just great to have ALL DAY to spend with our friends, living large, in the neighborhood.

After all, we didn't HAVE to be home until dinner time which strangely enough was 6 p.m. at everyone's house.

Our parents were never worried about us one bit. When we'd get home, all they wanted to know is what we had ended up doing that day and did we have a good time.

Then, after dinner, more often than not, back we'd go outside to play again with our friends in one person's driveway or carport or the street. We'd play until dusk set in and the streetlights came on (which could be as late as 9:30 or 10:00 p.m.)

Just seen who the OP was. Hello bud, another great post as usual. What a total mess this is turning into. Everything is turning to predetermined crap. I sure do hope the Mayan's were right about this coming change. The last change we received is going to take 20 plus years to fix, but there are no signs of this going back to the good old days.

Legal liability.

If the kids get hurt on someone else's property, the property owner will get sued for the expenses.

Most property owners do not want kids playing on their property for that reason.

Nothing against the kids having fun. It's just too much of a financial risk to let happen.

It's not an ideology, that's a cold0hearted reality of the world we live in today. When people can win multi-million dollar lawsuits for spilling coffee on themselves. Or for another example, breaking into a house through a skylight then suing the owners of the house the assailant broke into and intended to rob because the thief fell on a knife in the process. It's the lawyers and bureaucrats that have fucked all that up.

Today, frivioulous lawsuits changed all this and this is a major reason why people act this way. If a kid gets hurt on that property, THEY WILL SUE THE OWNER. The whole system of suing anyone is way out of hand, which is why people no longer help eachother, but look out for themselves in fear of being sued.

I have had social services called on me twice and the police interrogate me 4 times, because apparently I am one of only two families that allows my children to play outside at all in our neighborhood (which is very safe . Just today, I allowed all four of my children (they were all together) to go play in the field adjacent to my house. I could literally see them outside my kitchen window. My 10 year old ran home to tell my husband and I that a cop had stopped and was interrogating my oldest daughter.

these were not little kids 10 years and up!

i am 49 when i was 12 i would get on my bike with friends and ride across town....several miles.

the whole neighborhood played outside.till we were called in around 9 or 10pm...in the summer!

if we are to hold our kids inside all day and night in FEAR... no wonder they are all getting FAT!

why do they do these...why?

we have let our government into every piece of our live...and once let in they will never leave.

the change has come through the destruction of the continuity!

this has been slow and silent.

as the media spreads fear and the government endlessly tries to pit neighbor against neighbor cracks start...and fear will always slip in....
and as in this OP story if anyone is not cowering in the same level of fear their neighbors are....the officials must step in....police with their formal reports followed by a visit from the CDS...now fear your neighbor or fear us it is your choice.
CRACK filled. either way fear has been re-install in that neighborhood. and all the other neighbors now know to keep up the fear too!

for us older ones...we can look back on our youthful days and not know what changed.

why does my son not get to have those fun days of summer riding free and brave!....why must he cower in fear behind locked doors.
you go out side and see all your neighbors....you might even know there names...but that is as far as those relationship are allowed to go...

the fear, the fear....yes sadly the fear will always slips in.

You just described the USA 30+ years ago...........grow up, things have changed.

I live in rural America where the new community consists of meth labs, survivalists, retired folk just wanting some peace and quite, and poor struggling farmers. All of them do not like trespassers, kids or adults.

If the children were on a neighbors field, maybe the farmer got fed up with them on his/her property all the time. If the field was freshly sown or plowed the farmer should get upset. Trespassing is breaking the law and not respecting other peoples property.

similar situation happen to me.. my 2 kids were on my front porch and i was in the kitchen making sandwiches to eat outside. As i walking out my door with our lunch a cop was walking up my sidewalk. Said he noticed them outside without an adult and lectured me about how dangerous it was. Then needed my husbands and my full names, ssn and my kids fulls names ages and ssn's. Said i was going to be on file and if they saw it again social services would be at my house.i cried for a couple of hours i was so upset...

They don't need any of that info. Tell them to fuck off and come back with a warrant.

I feel there is more to this story.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1752472


Agreed.

There may have been recent break-ins or vandalism.

Besides, the "field adjacent to" the OP's house is obviously not the OP's property.

The children were on someone else's property, and the police officer had every right to ask them what they were doing there.

For all we know, the owner of the field may have complained about trespassers.

dear God, did you really just say that children playing in the open field are trespassers?

Really. What world did you grow up in. Certainly not the one I grew up in, that I am 100% sure of.

My curfew was the porch light.

My parents called my name, not my cell.

I played outside with friends, not online. And we were allowed out to play without our parents being there. We were even allowed out of their sight from morning till night.

If I didn't eat what was cooked for dinner, then I didn't eat.

Sanitizer didn't exist, but you COULD get your mouth washed out with soap.

I rode a bike without a helmet,

Getting dirty was ok, and

Neighbors LOVED YOU as much as your parents did....and they showed it by reprimanding you just like they would.

You didn't want to go home if you knew the teacher was going to call because your parents were going to punish you much worse than what the school could do. And there were no explanations or excuses.

And we drank water from a garden hose and survived

You just described the USA 30+ years ago...........grow up, things have changed.

I live in rural America where the new community consists of meth labs, survivalists, retired folk just wanting some peace and quite, and poor struggling farmers. All of them do not like trespassers, kids or adults.

If the children were on a neighbors field, maybe the farmer got fed up with them on his/her property all the time. If the field was freshly sown or plowed the farmer should get upset. Trespassing is breaking the law and not respecting other peoples property.

Now there were no kids in the park, no kids wandering the neighborhood.

Times have changed.

Things haven't been normal IMO since about the 80's. But damn, this is ridiculous.
