    Where were these three dancing?

    Edit: I see from the article they were heading back from rehearsal and stopped for gas. The police treated the girl like a criminal even after they knew everything was fine and she was safe. They decided the girl was not safe with these two men even after seeing all the documentation. This is just crazy. It is now criminal to be a 13 year old girl out after a certain hour. Who decided that?
    Most cities have a curfew or at least they did when I was a kid.

    I'm going to cut the cops some slack here. First they saw a 13 year old white girl with two black men at 3am. That just looks suspicious and needs checked out. Then the mom says it's fine no problem but if I was a cop I would now be suspicious of the two men and the mom.

    How can a cop decide after all documentation has been had that they girl was in danger?
    In Miley's case, I'd be more concerned for the manager.

    13yo girl out at 3am, yeah I would consider that a problem, regardless of who she was with, in most circumstances.

    Well we know that NOW, but when she was 13 she was less, how can I say this, disgusting.

    So there is never a reason have a 13 year old out at 3AM?

    What would you have done after being presented with the documentation?

    Does a notarized letter not mean anything anymore?

    Do human traffickers usually have notarized and original birth certificates with them for the girls under their control?

    But he raises a good point.

    A notarized document and consent over the phone is enough to let them go.

    If you actually believe in following the law, rather than conspiratorial suspicion.

    Not arguing with that either. Just sayin', a 13yo girl out at 3am with two men not her parents would initially look problematic to me also.
