A young boy was probation for causing some trouble around the neighborhood and often having his mom ring up the police because he wouldn’t do as he was told.
One day the police got a call from his mom because he wouldn’t do as she said and sleep on the floor of the kitchen. The hard, cold kitchen floor. The officer was shocked but couldn’t do anything, so he called the kid’s probation officer who demanded the kid be sent to a juvenile detention facility.
This annoyed the officer who clearly saw the boy do nothing wrong but couldn’t do anything about it. He asked the kid what he wanted for Christmas and got the most heartbreaking reply from the boy.
