Police in Ketchikan
By Rob Glenn
October 11, 2006
Sorry to let you know this, but the laws are the same in other
states as well. Drugs on school campus are a felony. Some states
I believe you are instantly jailed. Never saw that sign "Drug
free school zone?"
No matter where you son goes if he does what he is doing in Ketchikan
the only difference is he will be going to a court where he does
not know the judge.
They say that the first time it is a mistake, if you learn your
lesson. If you do it again well then there is more of a problem.
You son seems to be a repeat offender according to your letter.
Maybe it is not that the Police have it for your son but that
maybe your son is making very poor choices.
Drinking and Driving kills more people ages 16-30 then any thing
else. Do you want your son dead, or risking the possibility of
killing or injuring some one else? Could you live with that?
I don't see your son getting much sympathy when everyone in the
community is at risk with your son's behavior.
Many kids have single parents but they are not in constant trouble
with the law.
You need to tell your son it is time to become a man and step
up to being an adult. Or he will find himself in trouble anywhere
