    my niece into a huge meltdown

    I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

    •  Of course it would. (7+ / 0-)

      the threat of them attacking her dog sent me into vapors.  

      How is she doing now?  As I know things like that are cemented into their memories forever.  My son is still to this day upset over the incident when he stepped on a cat's paw and it screamed.  It's been over a decade and he still has issues over that accident.  I can't imagine the PTSD he'd have if ever he came in contact with our local "cops".

        These officers know her, which makes it worse. One thought she was just being a belligerent 16 year old. Then found she was only 11. Her mother has been trying to get the local police department to do CIT and Autism training. They claim they have been wanting to, just can't find the resources.
