Abuse of Power Reinstated

About mid January at 4 in the morning there was a knock at our door. My son's nurse answered and there were police with their guns drawn. They came through the lower level of my house. The nurse woke my son who woke my husband up who had been to the hospital for twelve hours with my daughter. My husband stood at the top of the stairs while the police officer yelled for my husband to move. My husband asked "what for." The officer claims he had an emergency call from our house someone screaming for help. Then the police officer miss quoted the 4Th Amendment. They didn't have a warrant. My husband stood there not letting him past. My three daughters where in their beds as well as myself. This one officer acted very much like a bully towards my husband. My husband protecting us stood at the top of the stairs. I recently saw an article about The DC government rehiring officer fired because of miss conduct(Washington Post Tuesday, May 20, 2008; Page B01). Here in DC many are afraid to call the police. You don't know who they will send. Later on my husband called the non emergency police number and found that 911 had been dial but their wasn't someone screaming for help. The nurse accidentally pressed the redial button. The number had been dialed earlier for my daughter. He not only misquoted the 4Th Amendment but he also lied. Where do you go for help in DC.? I have met some really nice police officers here don't get me wrong. I think being an officer in today's climate is very very hard and dangerous. I also feel that there are those with no morals, no manners and have violent tendencies. I wonder if their fellow officers worry about that conduct. Their are a lot of very very brave men and women who dedicates themselves whole heartily to this profession. I feel that it is a calling to be an officer. We already have to worry about the criminals now we have to worry about this small group of police too. I hope not.

The Battle, Computer play or Homework

I can surely say that "The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire." I am in the middle of three teen girls. They all have different personalities. They clash and bring the fight to me. If one of them perceives you taking sides God help you. Then they unite and the fight is against me. I feel as though I am in the middle of a buzz saw at times. I look at them and think in my mind show no fear. You are the mom. My goal initial is to get them to come to a peaceful resolution but then it turns truly ugly. I thank God I'm able to keep my cool most of the time after all moms are human beings too. You have to show them how to handle themselves under stress keeping your cool in the heat of battle. Homework always bumps playing games on the computer. If someone is playing or chatting with their Friends and another person needs the computer for homework, well playtime is bumped off. I stick to this house rule. Of Course they always come back with I’m sorry, the hugs and kisses and peace is restore until the next day.
