Mother arrested for taking phone away from teenage daughter


While the headline is sensational the real substance of the issue is this:

May’s ex-husband, who reported the alleged theft, told deputies that he owned the phone, but the mom says the phone was a Christmas gift from her ex-husband to her daughter.

I think this points to the devastation divorce inflicts on kids. This girl’s mother was arrested because of her dad’s dishonesty. Also, we have the problem of the state inserting itself into domestic issues. In cases like this we can see the danger of that.
