    Re: HPD responds to accusations of racial profiling with Oklahoma teen, dancers

    Read some more on this and nothign as changed for me

    if everything happened like the articles have said:




    age vs time of night = legit concern to investigate, no problem there at all


    once proper documents were supplied that should have been enough IMO

    the phone call and taking them into custody is an extra step that IMO wasnt needed but at least its "sorta" justifiable, so still no real problem there


    after the phone call to the parents, faxes etc then its outrageous and i have a serious problem with this

    especial if the officer did question their parenting

    lastly IF the local OK police did call the texas police also then its just down right insane, offensive and ignorant

    if this was my kid i would definitely be super pissed and would do everything to press charges, theres no need to put my daughter through that

    now again, this is if the articles are true

    in fact, if it was possible as soon as he questioned my parenting i would have made the trip down there and told right to his face the many different way he kiss my entire ass

    You have obviously never been a parent but, if you have, you're one of the worst I've seen.

    That was one of the most ignorant statements I've ever heard.

    Did it not matter she told them the situation then the police verified it?

    Are they saying the girl was in on the human trafficking, if that is what it was?
    You ever heard of the Stockholm syndrome?

    Pimping and drug dealing knows no one particular color. A Houston police officer is a very busy person. Houston is not a very safe place to live.

    According to stats
    Houston crime statistics report an overall upward trend in crime based on data from 12 years with violent crime increasing and property crime increasing. Based on this trend, the crime rate in Houston for 2013 is expected to be higher than in 2010.

    The city violent crime rate for Houston in 2010 was higher than the national violent crime rate average by 144.29% and the city property crime rate in Houston was higher than the national property crime rate average by 71.87%.
    Houston Crime Statistics: Texas (TX) - CityRating.com

    I doubt you would find any respectable parents in the city of Houston or anywhere else that would find it acceptable for their 13 year old daughter to be sleeping in a car at a gas station in downtown Houston at 3:00 AM. And I believe the consensus of most good parents would be that it was their duty to accompany their daughter on the trip to Houston, 500 miles away from home. What the cop sees occurring on the streets every night in Houston and how/when he found this 13 year old kid, gave him every right to question her parent's parenting skills. These folks are one French fry short of a Happy Meal.

    I agree. I don't have any big issue with the Cops INITIALLY looking into this.

    I do have an issue with their discretion of the problem being that she was with "two black men". Don't give me the "he was just describing them". You're not getting called being told your daughter is with "two blonde men" or "two short men" or "Two overweight men". The one you MAY get is "Two older men"...why? Because the "older" in that case is the characteristic that you found troubling. Just like in this case, the characteristic that they found troubling was "black".

    I also have issue with them making accusations of bad parenting and continuing to give problems after they had various ways (apparently official documentation and later voice verificatoin) that the parents were aware the child was under the guardianship of the dance instructor.

    You have never been to an all night resturant with your kids?

    When you have no idea what you are talking about, you really should just stay quite.

    That's exactly one of my points...being with parents!

    Your child has never spent the night at a friends house?

    They can go to a Denny's late at night.

    Should the child be taken away because they are not with their parents?

    If I knew and vetted the dance instructors beforehand, I'd have no problem leaving a 13-year-old child in their care for a weekend trip.

    My guardians did the same thing for me many times when I was that age for various school and scouting activities.

    Yes my children spent the night at other children's homes. There parents were there.

    Yes they may have taken them for a late night snack somewhere.

    NEVER would I allow my 13 year old to be anywhere that late at night with anyone but a child's parent I could trust. Definitely not 7.5 hours away.

    I've been to Houston late at night and I would let my dog out much less my 13 year old daughter.

    Thank God those cops are watching out for such things because her parents were not.

    Here is local example of some other people that need their parental rights revoked.
