Bottom line.....I don't believe there is any reason why children should be separated from parents.
Strategist saysBottom line.....I don't believe there is any reason why children should be separated from parents. OK, so when the parents are convicted criminals, then you think the kids should go to the jail cell alongside them?The report found that 1.2 million inmates—more than half of the incarcerated population—were parents of children under age 18. Two-thirds of these incarcerated parents were serving time for a non-violent crime while one-third were serving time for a violent one.As a result, there are 2.7 million minor children who have a parent in jail or prison. In other words, 1-in-28 American children (3.6%) have an incarcerated parent. Just 25 years ago, the number was 1-in-125.
If the child is just a few years old, yes. Otherwise, the child should be with one of the parents, or the grandparents, or close relatives. Just not with strangers.

Just not with strangers.So, you're stating, it's OK to break the law, ANY law, as long as you tow your kid along with you, as you want the kid to be your "get out of jail FREE" card, right?Or, since you don't want the kids and the criminal separated, the 8 year old kid should go to general lockup with the parents, and live alongside all the other rapists, murderers, child molestors, etc. because we just shouldn't separate kids and their criminal parents.
We would need to keep the kid and mom separate from rapists, murderers, and child molesters. I actually think the criminals should be executed.Why punish the kids?
