    No. The point has been made that because she was with two men, it was inappropriate.

    So that begs the question, would the police have taken the girl to jail if she had been with two women.

    Women seem to think "Young, Male, Guilty"

    What was the danger the police were trying to protect her from? I would like an exact answer to that.

    Sounds like you are taking it personal because you are a man. It's not just women who would find it 'more' inappropriate(or less comfortable) b/c they are male. I bet if we did a poll, most men would feel less comfortable with their daughter driving across the state with 2 men rather than two women. It's just the reality, and yes it's based off of statistics.

    Maybe you are right but a man will not automatically assume the 2 men would harm the girl in anyway.

    This was her dance teacher and partner. I am sure they have worked together many long hours for years.

    So what danger was present at the time for the police to take the girl to jail?

    I don't agree with the cops actions and believe their assumptions were more based on race than based on them being male. I was just echoing why it doesn't look right. The whole'' avoid the very appearance of evil''comes to mind. In general I just wouldn't be ok with it, and I AM a dance mom and a dancer myself!

    Goes further than a gender thing with me. I don't let my kids have sleepovers unless I am friends with the parents . I guess the parents of the kids I don't allow it with should take it personal too. My kids have asked if they could have friends sleep over and some parents won't allow them to sleep over b/c they don't know me. I don't take it personal. I see it as a parent using caution. I won't apologize for erring on the side of caution when it comes to my kids.

    Well, there's nothing in this story that implies that the girl's family didn't know the two men she was staying with. People really are basing their entire judgments in this case on the fact that it was a 13-year-old girl alone with two men, and that the two men were black.
