Poll: Most Americans Want to Criminalize
Pre-Teens Playing Unsupervised

Reason, by Lenore Skenazy

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 8/25/2014 2:26:50 PM

A whopping 68 percent of Americans think there should be a law that prohibits kids 9 and under from playing at the park unsupervised, despite the fact that most of them no doubt grew up doing just that. What´s more: 43 percent feel the same way about 12-year-olds. They would like to criminalize all pre-teenagers playing outside on their own (and, I guess, arrest their no-good parents). Those are the results of a Reason/Rupe poll confirming that we have not only lost all confidence in our kids and our communities—we have lost all touch with reality.

Words fail me.

I´m as paranoid as the next person about kids getting snatched.* I´m way vigilant when I have my nephews with me - even the 17yo third-degree black belt tae kawan do nephew. But this is crazy. Are we gonna criminalize all bad parenting? Ooh - talk about a slippery slope.

* Gavin de Becker, in his excellent book The Gift of Fear, says that the "stranger danger" meme has lulled children into not seeing danger from the most common of places - people they know. He says stranger abductions are by far the least common cause of hard to children. An overwhelming percentage of abuse and worse comes from people the kid knows.

If they outlaw unsupervised play, they are going to turn most minors into criminals. It is probably time for the DHS to start buying hobnails for the soles of their boots.

As #6 asked, where was this push poll taken - high-density urban setting? If they pass it they can pound sand. There is no authority for government to do this - anywhere. And if they pretend there is, then clearly they have self-identified as a threat to the Republic and should be immediately dealt with as such.

This has to be a city heavy poll. I grew up in small town America. I would leave in the morning, ride my bike approx. 2 1/2 miles to my cousin´s, then we would ride another mile to our favorite pond. We skinny dipped, fished, trapped turtles (big snappers) to sell and engaged in various other activities all day. As long as we were home for supper, things were good. Our appetites would bring us home as long as hadn´t stuffed ourselves with whatever we could scrounge along the way.
Did we hurt urselves a few times? Yes, but we survived and learned to take care of ourselves in the process.

If you follow the link to the Reason/Rupe poll and scroll to the bottom you´ll find the questions. This was a national poll of 1000 adults. 500 landlines, 500 cell phones. There´s some correlation between level of education and whether you think kids should play unsupervised in the park.

When my son was around 10 or 11 years old he wanted to visit his buddies who lived about 2 miles from our house. He was going to ride over on his bike. I cautioned him about the traffic and also advised that he take his army knife with him just in case. He had a great summer hanging out with his friends. He got to taste some of what I had when I was a kid: freedom. Nothing is as good as that.

Scandinavians Split Over Syrian Influx

THE narrow victory of the left-leaning Social Democratic Party in Sweden’s elections last Sunday marked a broad shift in its politics. But a new coalition government is unlikely to reconsider one of the country’s most challenging policies: its response to the Syrian civil war. Sweden has taken an open-door approach to people fleeing the conflict, accepting more Syrians than any other European country. Never mind that Sweden has double-digit youth unemployment. That there have been riots in immigrant neighborhoods in Stockholm. That there is a severe housing shortage for new arrivals. Or that the Swedish Migration Board, which handles asylum seekers,

While Scotland’s voters weighed whether to separate from the United Kingdom Thursday, another decision involved its most famous institution separating from 260 years of tradition. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews voted overwhelmingly to admit women, echoing a similar decision at the far younger Augusta National Golf Club in 2012. In both cases, a private organization made a decision it was entitled to make. But the environment surrounding both decisions, and the reactions thereafter, paint a disturbing portrait of a thickening cultural fog. Let us begin with a premise that will drop jaws on both sides of the Atlantic:

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

States enraged by an Obamacare provision denying them subsidies unless they created insurance exchanges shouldn’t have been surprised. Congress routinely uses the power of the purse to twist states’ arms until they submit. It’s worked for decades. When states wanted federal highway funds in the 1970s, they first had to lower their speed limits to 55 mph. A decade later, states were prodded into raising the drinking age to 21. In the 2000s, federal education grants were made contingent on states adopting standards included in such programs as No Child Left Behind and Common Core. Now, however, states increasingly are

While we talk about democracy and equal rights, we seem increasingly to let both private and government decisions be determined by mob rule. There is nothing democratic about mob rule. It means that some people´s votes are to be overruled by other people´s disruptions, harassments and threats. The latest examples are the mobs in the streets in cities across the country, demanding that employers pay a minimum wage of $15 an hour, or else that the government makes them do so by law. Some of the more gullible observers think the issue is whether what some people are making now is

(Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed.
