Texas Cops Ticket Thousands of Schoolchildren to Raise Revenue, Some as Young as 6-Yrs-Old

Chris | InformationLiberation

Flashback: The Government Would Rather You Die If It Nets More RevenueThis is how low your government will go. Cops in Texas have been writing thousands of tickets to schoolchildren for $250-$500 each for the "crime" of "misbehaving in school" so the government can raise revenue. This has been going on now for over five years.

The Texax Tribune reports:
With the rise of get-tough juvenile crime policies across Texas, the municipal courthouse has become the new principal’s office for thousands of students who get in fights, curse their teachers or are generally “disorderly” on school campuses — even in elementary schools, according to data collected from school systems by Texas Appleseed, a nonprofit research and advocacy group focusing on social and economic justice.

Dallas ISD’s police department, for instance, issued criminal citations to 92 10-year-olds in the 2006-07 school year, the latest year for which such data is available. Alief ISD’s officers issued 163 tickets to elementary school students in 2007. And “several districts ticketed a 6-year-old at least once in the last five years,” according to a recent presentation to the state Senate’s Criminal Justice Committee by Texas Appleseed. Such tickets, often given for “disorderly conduct” or “classroom disruption,” typically are handled in municipal courts or by county justices of the peace and can have fines of between $250 to $500, police and court officials say, though some courts route many students into community service in lieu of fines. [...]

Last school year, police in Houston ISD, with an enrollment of about 200,000, wrote 5,763 tickets to students, its department reported to the Tribune. The number of tickets in Houston has ranged between 4,000 and 6,000 since 2005, according to district data. Dallas ISD, with about 150,000 students, wrote nearly about 4,400 tickets in 2006-07, according to data the district reported to Texas Appleseed. (Dallas ISD officials said they could not immediately provide more updated data.) Officers in Austin ISD, with enrollment of more than 80,000, wrote 2,364 tickets in the 2007-08 school year, according to the organization’s data, a decline from a peak of more than 3,000 in 2005-06.
This is your pathetic parasite government at work.

7559 1st I've heard of this.
article doesn't explain possible violations / just #'s of.
I can't imagine in my youth a violation which would've warranted a monetary fine. I got swats in the principals office in 4th grade for some disruption I can't remember for what / other than it happened on my birthday. Financially penalizing parents for their childrens wrong doings / if the wrong is excessive makes them take a responsible role in their childs maturation into rules & consequences of societal interrelations.

9633 The numbers are 2-3% of all students. I wold think this would be done in only extreme cases. As others have pointed out this is probably the best way to get the parents to take notice nad correct their childs behavior. However the fines collected should go into some sort of education or counseling services.

68195 6=year olds getting tix to pay cop's salaries, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our right:
They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
Impeach Obama and sweep out the Congress.

109158 If a ticket is issued to a 6 year old, and it is written in his/her name, surely she has to pay it not the parents. The parents have not misbehaved in school, so legally they should not have to pay it. Or like here in the UK can elect to pay the fine off at £1 a week or whatever they can afford, that way they are not refusing to pay the fine, just asking for time to pay due to financial hardship. And what 6 year old doesnt misbehave - for gods sakes they are still babies at that age.

68231 Are you all insane? Who would be stupid enough to pay a fine that you can't fight in court? There is no crime and no arrest therefore no fine should be levied against the person.

7460 One thing is clear here, blaming Obama is called blaming the victim (He has been harassed by the American Wasp party. If a Black man had ever been to a political rally wearing a side arm with a white president in attendance, that person would be dead, buried and REMEMBERED BY THE WHITE PRESS ON EVERY TV CHANNEL DAILY.

Excess ticketing, jacking up fees for trivial services like getting a copy of one's birth certificate, is the CONS(ervative) method for continous funding of their boondoggles.

Throwing out the constitution they way Bush did makes one wonder if Hitler really won the war-sure looks like he did. Wont be long before every wonk with a badge will be asking: "VVehe arh your papers" :-)

17357 Good! Ticket the BULLIES and Miscreants. If the PARENTS won't discipline the children some else will. I used to eat at Gatti's Pizza. The soccer moms would come in and let their children run wild in the store.
No discipline whatsoever. I do not advocate punishment . Loving care works best. Yet these adults were not teaching their children to respect others. They were not respecting others themselves.
What happened to this country?
