Excellent points... and as I wrote at the start of this thread, Summertime is here, and tempers flare.I live in Columbus and voluntary moved here. I could not ask for a better community. Ignorance is not just in the Columbus area, it is everywhere. For some of the comments that are out there by people who know nothing about the situation, what makes you such an authority on the subject and Columbus? Do I think that the parents are wrong for what happened? By all means I think that used very gross judgement and even more idiotic behavior by acting out on feelings. Does this mean that every parent and child should be judged as "rednecks"? Of course not. That is not for me or you or anyone else to decide. Hopefully the parties involved will learn from this and move on. Check the web. This kind of crap happens all the time. They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time and someone got camera happy -- but always remember this -- you never know who is watching you-- whether it is your children or someone watching through the lens of a camera.. Smile.. you never know when you will be on TV.
It happens all over the world this time of year, every year.
