Parental Responsibility

March 19, 2004

"Missing 3 Weeks, Santa Ana Girls Are Found Safe" (March 16) states that "although two detectives worked full time on the case and a number of patrol officers worked overtime, police said they don't expect to charge the families for the investigation." Why not charge the families? Isn't it time parents take some responsibility for teaching their children to have enough decency and/or respect for their family to not just disappear?

Such basic lessons might help to avoid dumping these expensive "gone missing" cases on the taxpayers, who are expected once again to pick up the tab for overtime in addition to the waste of police personnel's valuable time.
