Every time I think we've got it bad...

I just look at what people in other countries have to put up with.
Police arrested a Kitchener, Ont., father outside his daughter's school because the four-year-old drew a picture of him holding a gun.

Jessie Sansone told the Record newspaper that he was in shock when he was arrested Wednesday and taken to a police station for questioning over the drawing. He was also strip-searched.

"This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school," he said.

Officials told the newspaper the move was necessary to ensure there were no guns accessible by children in the family's home. They also said comments by Sansone's daughter, Neaveh, that the man holding the gun in the picture was her dad and "he uses it to shoot bad guys and monsters," was concerning.

Police also searched Sansone's home while he was in custody. His wife and three children were taken to the police station, and the children were interviewed by Family and Children's Services.
The kid likes it that her dad keeps her safe from 'bad guys and monsters.' Yeah, this is a job for the Child Nazis. Maybe she's got a dog they can shoot in front of her; that'd straighten her out.

God forbid a child hold her daddy as a hero.
The horror of such a thing. Why, she may even grow up thinking the state is less relevant.
I'll bet this amusing little adventure reminds her how important her government is and seals her affection for life.
