If you’re thinking about leaving a poorly behaved child at the Police Station to scare them into behaving well, think again. The article below highlights two not-so-bright parents who decided to abandon their 6-year-old daughter at the Police Station. Their plan backfired when they were the ones who got arrested. Apparently it wasn’t their first time; the couple was previously arrested for drugs.

Let this be a lesson to all. If you’re going to abandon your children, take them to the Fire Station. Duh!

    Aw, come on! Serious!?

    Who threatens to leave their kids anywhere? I thought that went out with the whole Boogey man thing.

    Always check to see if you have a warrant for arrest before going to abandon your child anywhere. 😉

    We had a dad in our town that left his two boys in the park after dark to teach them a lesson! Yes, he got arrested too. Happens more than we think I guess!
