Saying that parents will pay for truants is like saying that the dress code will be enforced or that the students won't be able to use cell phones in a class.

Heavens forbid that we make the parents responsible for anything. Most are so wrapped
up in themeselves and their lives that they forgot that they actually had responsbility for their
Make an example out of every legitimate case this
year and the parents may get an idea.

We would have less problems with these maggots that want to look like and act like gangsters if the parent would buy proper clothes, insist on curfews, demand that the family eat together, and in general maintain family values. This is mainly a Mexican problem although there are a few white trash involved. The problem is that there is no strong male figure present, daddy is in prison. Tio is in prison. Even big brother is in prison.

Don't make this a racial thing. Go to the schools and you have every color of kid trying to wear their pants down to their arses and dressing stupid. They all want to be Emminem, Usher, etc.
The schools don't care as long as they get federal funds to keep charging.
Kids today are lazy and sloppy. But then again, what were we like?
You got parents allowing their 14 year old daughters to have the boyfriend spend the night. Hellooooo!
You have parents who don't stay married when shithitsthefan.
Kids don't have to worry about being disciplined, they just dial 1-800-child-abuse or 1-800-sus-anna and the parents are takien through the ringer. Kids have been trained to watch their parents and tell on them. This is the beginning of a fully socialist state.
It's not the public's business how kids are disciplined. The parents have to deal with these kids. The thing now is that both parents tend to work, so the kids see the bad examples at school more than the parents. 2-3 hrs a day for the parents, entire days for school mates and teachers.
We have allowd the government to tell us what to do, whaen to do it, how to do it, etc. We made this bed and we need to sleep in it or get some politicians with ballz to say enough.
Don't sit there blaming the parents. Hold the damned kids accountable for their actions. Put the kids in jail. The kids know that they cannot be touched and that it'll cost the parents, who cannot touch them.
The legal system is a joke when it comes to underage and the kids know it.
Keep up the good work kidz, u r untouchable.

Who ever says joe arpaio is a hero is a freakin knucklehead. That idiot of a sheriff, while playing to the controversial issues and to the teabaggers haas allowed violent crime in maricopa county to increase by 58 percent. Why don't we get our useless police to stop eating donuts and speeding around and maybe our speeding fines will go out of control.
Don't praise people for doing stupid things. Enforcing the immigration laws is a federal job and it's a job that is psuhed slectively as cheap labor is needed for doing crappy jobs.
Next time you think that illegals are stealing your jobs, drop the keyboard and go out to the onion fields or lettuce fields or roofing and see if it's enjoyable work. The truth is that people here have figured out that they make more money on unemployment, foodstamps and welfare than they do off of working hard.
People say there are no jobs. Get off yourbutts and look and be prepared to work.
The government officials in this town should be ashamed of themselves as they know what is going on. Go to the projects and see how many lazy people live there. I get tired of going to the store to buy my 2-3 things and see ladies with a pile of kids and 2-3 carts full only to pay cash for the beer that they got and the rest with the magical EBT card.

I did not make this a racial thing, it began as one. You did expound on my topics very well, thank you.

Not saying that you yourself is making this racial, talking the royal you ... It's insane the level of control that the govt has on parents and kids. Yup, if you want to know, just ask a kid, "what should you do if your parents are doing bad things?". Answer: "call the police". Bad things being anything the kids don't like. What a joke. There is no accountability on the part of the kids. They simply say, gonna tell the teacher, gonna tell the cops, gonna tell mom and dad. Play all sides against each other to get what you want. Poor kids. They are helpless. We need to punish the parents. Fine the parents. Save the kids. BS.
