How Dare They!
Last fall, a 911-phone call was routed to the police department in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. The call came from a local teenager holding a terrible secret—his parents had stolen his Xbox 360.
The police dutifully arrived to his house. There, the young man complained and asked an officer if his parents had the right to seize his gaming system.
Filed with the police department is a report of how the police officers handled the young man’s complaint. There one can read that an officer "advised [the young man] that he needed to listen to his parents..."—truly an understatement.
