YOUR TURN: Oscar Bradford wants to send parents to jail

WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Oscar Bradford of Memphis. He’s concerned about the problems that some young people are causing in schools and other places and he wants their parents held accountable.

In his words:

"When children cause problems, it is first because of the failure of the parents to discipline and teach them how to behave and respect others. Until our laws are changed the problems will continue. Laws need to be enacted to put action where it first belongs. When the child goes to court or jail, the parents should go with them and be subject to the same charges and detention time. At present, the legal system is failing its duty."

That's Oscar Bradford's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
