And they wonder why many law abiding, upright individuals have nothing but contempt for them.

"He did his job," Martone said. "It's a fine line any officer in the schools walks."

And they wonder why many law abiding, upright individuals have nothing but contempt for them.

Come on. This was a man bites dog story. This police department must be unique in arresting a 12 year olds for splashing. That's why the AP picked up the story.

I agree with many of the criticisms of the educational establishment, but the arrest doesn't have much to do with them. If the arrest is a symptom of anything, it is a symptom that the US is becoming an increasing legalistic place.

One aspect of legalism I am seeing in the district where our youngest goes to school is that they really expect the teachers to follow the curriculum, mightily annoying some of the best teachers.
