lol.
Are you always the victim??
Anyways.. 9 year olds need to be supervised by responsible adults.
A park is not a suitable place for a 9 year old to be dropped off in
while the child's mother ( or father) is working.
Hope you are never in charge of children depending on responsible adults.
You fail.
I would say that depends on two things:

1. Location

2. Maturity of the child.

Child protective services recognizes that some children mature faster than others.

----------
So Whig party Sec of State John Kerry, after a sarcastic comment about Israel on a hot mike he didn't realize was hot, declared that "they had to get over there". The FAA banned all flights to Tel Aviv due to Hamas rocket fire 1 mile from the airport.
Kerry decides to risk it anyway, and it's soon "wheels down" in Tel Aviv.(Gotta give the boy street creds for bravery,(or is it lunacy)? Well, one or the other.
So then Johnny and his staff expect to have REAL peace negotiations between Israel, and Hamas, a terrorist group who has VOWED more than once to NEVER accept peace with a population of Jews that they are trying to completely exterminate from the face of the earth.
Brother Arabs in Egypt had called for a cease-fire about a week or so earlier, which Hamas didn't even consider, but instead continued shooting rockets at anyone & everyone in Israel.
John K may have good intentions, but he's got about as much of a chance to broker a peace deal with Hamas, as Whig President Obama does working with the Tory party.
John Kerry has a perpetual need to be relevant and he never quite gets there. I hope Israel flattens Hamas and does whatever it takes to do it. Ka-BOOM!

There is absolutely no way to judge that and no CPS I've ever worked with made that judgment. A Judge did somewhere, deciding a child was mature for her years, so molesting her wasn't so bad and he gave the dude a light sentence. I think that judge is out of a job.

Yes, politicians will try to use any hot button issue and turn it into a political agenda to advance whatever cause they're trying to advance.
But the border crisis isn't really political, it's legal. The politicians are doing what they do - being dishonest.
Thank you for the apology, I shouldn't have been a smart ass to you, that wasn't the right thing to do either.
The border crisis isn't really political?

In the United States, EVERYTHING is (or can be) political.:Legal issues are no exception. The border crisis (serving political needs for over a hundred years) is no exception.

If the border issue wasn't political, politicians on both sides wouldn't be doing what they do on political issues - raise money, rally the base. There is nothing 'legal' about the conversation that we're having in this thread - it's ALL politics.

So a child who is mature for its age in a "safer" area has no chance of being harmed?

Oh, I forgot, the child has a phone.

Well, here's one politician who has come up with a creative solution to a real problem!!

DALLAS (The Borowitz Report)—In his boldest move yet to address the immigration crisis, on Thursday Texas Governor Rick Perry dispatched the Dallas Cowboys to the United States’ border with Mexico.

In a photo opportunity with the Cowboys and several of the team’s cheerleaders, Perry explained the rationale behind his latest decision.“Those who would cross our borders illegally will have to contend with the power and fury of America’s Team,” he said.

Critics of the move dismissed it as political theatre, noting that once the Cowboys arrived at the border it was unclear what they would do there.

Additionally, there were questions about how effective the Cowboys would be in stopping illegal immigrants, since the team has the worst-ranked defense in the N.F.L.

I do admit that the world we live in today is nothing like the one when I was 9. As you know wife and I will never have kids but if we did wouldn't let them go to any park around here alone as I did back in 1983, its a different world. Having said that you have to know what I'm saying is true. People like the msnbc hack openly say what they do and it scares the crap out of me.
Here's one.

Hawaii. Child misbehaved in school, the father questioned him about it on the way home, the child wouldn't answer him, Dad pulled over, told the boy to get out and think about while walking home about a mile. Child ends up crying, someone picked him up and brought him back to school and called the police. Dad was charged, fined, given probation for a year and ordered to go to parenting class.

Yes I agree. That judge should be out of a job. Not only that, he should be thrown in prison too.

If you don't already know that some children mature faster than others, you need to stay out of this conversation. It's common knowledge.

Yes, location. Are you aware that some locations are safer than others?

Proponents of an insecure border are calling it "humanitarian aid" and making it political.

If folks would just stick to the law - utilize it, protect it - there'd be very little illegal immigration.

In what state do you think a CPS worker has the flexibility to approve a mature 9 year old staying in a safe park while mom is at work?

California.

The state owns the children, not the parents.

A nine-year-old would be a 3rd or 4th grader, do you think it would be equally irresponsible of the parents to "force" that kid to walk to school?

Uh-huh.

Basically what you're telling me is that you don't know very much about the subject.

Ou have a very vivid imagination if you see either a personal attack or a concession.

When you include in your characterization the absurd suggestion that the state owns children, you don't know what you are talking about. That implies a lack of knowledge, not a personal flaw.

Thinking on this a bit as I ran my route today... We all want to be safe but never will be. Lived in D.C. back in 82 when after an all day blizzard national airport opened back up to airlines. Air Florida 90 didn't make it and hit a bridge. Not only did most on board die so did a few people on the bridge in cars. Fast forward to September 11, 2001. You know what happened and in our haste to be safe the Bush admin. gives as DHS, the patriot act and other laws for our safety. Its possible (and I think likely) some of these measures have protected us but at what cost? A bit of a tangent as this has little to do with children but try as we may we live among some evil people. Can we ever be safe?
