As Infowars noted, this is just one example of an alarming trend in America. “This is not an isolated case, it’s part of a disturbing pattern of parents across the nation being punished for allowing their kids to form any semblance of individuality and self-responsibility.” It should be abundantly clear now, that the government won’t rest until they’ve successfully raised a generation of helpless kids, who’ll only recognize the nanny state as their guardian.
