” A day after a boy was arrested and charged with a felony for throwing a snowball at a police officer, students outside George Leland Elementary continued to build snowmen and throw snowballs at each other after school.

  According to police, a 13-year-old boy was charged as a juvenile with felony aggravated battery against a police officer Wednesday after he hit the officer in the arm with a snowball while the officer was parked in his vehicle in the 4900 block of West Congress Parkway about 3:20 p.m.”

 

   It’s all about power . In my day the cop would have given the kid a good tongue lashing and driven him home to his parents who most likely would have thrashed his backside a bit and grounded him for a week … end of story , lesson learned . No more , now everything ends in arrest and/or assault . My how we have fallen .
