Well, not really. A kid in Charlotte turned in his parents for having a stash of pot.
But you wouldn't know that from listening to D.A.R.E. officer Stason Tyrell as he smugly congratulates the squealer on turning in his parents.
Something has gone genuinely wrong in this country, when the government pins a medal on a kid's chest for helping the Man bust his parents. If anything was ever right about this country in the first place:
The 11-year-old student is in 5th grade at a an elementary school in Matthews. Police say he brought his parents' marijuana cigarettes to school when he reported them.
Matthews Police say he reported his parents after a lesson about marijuana was delivered by a police officer who is part of the D.A.R.E. program, which teaches kids about the dangers of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.
"Even if it's happening in their own home with their own parents, they understand that's a dangerous situation because of what we're teaching them," said Matthews Officer Stason Tyrrell. That's what they're told to do, to make us aware."
Tyrrell says the town's D.A.R.E. officer spends time at each of the three elementary schools in Matthews teaching kids to make the right choice when it comes to drugs.
The right choice, in this case, was to destroy the child's own family.
Police arrested the child's 40-year-old father and 38-year-old mother on Thursday.
Both were charged with two misdemeanor counts each of marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
They were not jailed and were released on a written promise to appear in court.
"I don't give drugs to my kids," the father told us when we went to his house.
When we asked him how his kid got ahold of his drugs, he replied, "That's no one's business."
No, it's everyone's business. Because if a boy can't turn his parents in based on what he finds while rooting through the cigar box in dad's bedroom closet, we might as well live in Russia.
