Thanks for blogging about this. I read about it last night on Twitter but had not found time today to follow-up. It’s good to know they have an attorney. I also read that the officer has been suspended.
Where I grew up, any adult in the neighborhood, if they saw a kid doing something that might pose physical danger to themselves or others, transgress the law, or cause a problem disturbing the peace of the neighborhood, had the right to walk out to tell you to stop doing whatever it was. Usually a short mea culpa by the kid involved was where it ended. If you talked back, then the neighbor would almost always say something to your parents. at which point you were officially “in trouble”. Depending on what you did, that trouble might end up in a stern talking to or a but whipping. Talking back to a neighbor almost always assured it was the second consequence.
No neighbor would ever raise a hand to physically punish someone else’s kid.
The dumb ass cop in this case must have grown up with animals.

The second annual “Daddy Daughter Dance” was held in Chicago over the weekend, and the event sponsored by the Chicago Police Department proved to be a success.
The event, which was held at the South Shore Cultural Center, matched up Chicago police officers with girls who don’t have fathers in their lives. Also in attendance were officers and their own daughters.
“After last year’s event, we had several officers and the young ladies that they escorted, they kept up with one another and it really bridged a gap,” said Sgt. Kimberly Woods. “It let the girls know that officers are just people too and we dance, and we dance funny like your dads do.”
The Chicago Police Department and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives planned the dance to encourage healthy relationships between daughters and their fathers.
