    Common law...........law we can all agree on.

    That's what makes it common.

    Should this man have been arrested ?

    The school thinks they can keep the kids for as long as they want after the bell. And even if you have an appointment, you will get your kids when school say so.

    Should he have been refused custody of his child? No, the school is in loco parentis, they do not take precedence over the parent.

    Should he have been arrested? No, he was presenting his case calmly and rationally - his crime was disagreeing with the policeman who was not presenting his case calmly and rationally.

    The cop should be suspended and retrained IMHO.

    Obviously there is some history between this guy and the sheriff deputy.

    I apologize sir.

    The reference to the 'It takes a village' was intended to be a slam towards Hillary Clinton.

    Other than that, the cop was just being stupid.

    This is something, IMO, not a crisis, but a local matter.

    Re: Common law...........law we can all agree on.

    At first I thought by his manner, that the parent was bullying, but then I thought why have they started filming? So something was obviously said that upset him. Where's the disorderly conduct? The woman behind the desk doesn't look too offended and the bloke is very cordial to her.
    Why does he have to sign a paper to pick his children up ...And when he says "when school is dissmissed the kids are coming with me"...........and the copper says "That's not how it works".???????? He has to pick his kids up the way the school says. His daughter has to be left on a sidewalk whilst waiting for a car to pick her up ????

    I just don't get it. The school security guy is more upset about the man (Jim) calling the sheriff than anything else.

    " the school says you can have your child but it doesn't say when you can have your child " the man responds "within a reasonable time .....fifteen mintues" ....................and then gets arrested. WTF?

    I recognized the reference, a standard deflection towards your standard subject matter. That's why I re-asked the original question.

    It's far more than a local matter where the forces of "law and order" are acting against law and order, feeling that their opinion is sacrosanct and cannot be challenged. A policeman is as human as the rest of us and can equally be wrong - the day that a member of the public cannot disagree with the word of a policeman for fear of being handcuffed and locked up is the day we pass into a police state and loose our freedom.

    Doesn't matter if they know each other . It doesn't matter at all, and if at all the fact that they know each other comes into this it shows a lack of professionalism on the part of the copper. No institution can hold a child against the parents will.

    Lets remember he's only their to pick his children up. And he is being told that he can't.

    Is the guy school security? copper ? what?

    There HAS to be more than what we saw, without getting the back story, no doubt the Policeman was way out of order, but without knowing his reasoning who can say?
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth
