Could you live through the humiliation of being searched every time you went to a store to purchase something? Would you like to be pulled over and your vehicle searched for drugs and alcohol on a regular basis? These things happen to my teenage sons all the time.
Obviously we need strict laws to protect ourselves, but have we gone too far? How can we teach our children respect for the law when all it represents to them is a bad-mouthed bully?

There are a lot of great kids out there, so let's not treat them all as criminals.
