    6-year-old sentenced to traffic school

    People need to learn how to control there own kids and leave the government out of it! If I had refused to do something I was told at that age I wouldn't have been sent to traffic school.

    6-year-old sentenced to traffic school

    LOS LUNAS (KRQE) - Even though mom got the ticket a Los Lunas magistrate judge isn't letting her child off the hook for refusing to buckle up.

    The child's mother, who was ticketed for failing to restrain her child, asked Judge John "Buddy" Sanchez if he could help discipline her 6-year-old.

    The boy always took his seat belt off despite her pleas, the mother said.

    "He took off his seat belt, I pulled over again and put it on and he took it off right in front of the cop," said Jessica who did not want to release her full name.

    In January Jessica was stopped and ticketed. She landed in front of Judge Sanchez last month and asked him to talk to her son.

    "She didn't want to plead guilty to it because it was her son that was actually not obeying her," Sanchez said.

    He agreed that it was Jessica's son who needed to learn a lesson so he ordered ther to take her young son to traffic school.

    "But there was nothing because of his age," said Jessica.

    That's when the judge reached out to a Los Lunas driver's education instructor Avilio Chavez.

    "I thought he was kidding," Chavez said. "He wanted to send him to defensive-driving class or driver-improvement class."

    After some discussion Chavez and Sanchez agreed on a simpler solution to teach the young lawbreaker a lesson.

    "Full seat-belt school," Sanchez said.

    Jessica agreed to take her son to a seat-belt safety class, which is expected to start in a month. They'll attend together and also learn other traffic safety measures.

    "Having somebody that young is an interesting concept," said Chavez who added that the youngest student he's ever had in his class was 15.

    "We just want to make sure everyone's safe," Sanchez said.

    But it looks like the lesson has already been learned.

    "I think it's a very good idea," said Jessica. "He did it all the time until Judge Buddy Sanchez talked to him."

    Sanchez said anyone who goes through his court for failure to restrain a child could now have to take the class along with their child.

    Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant'
    is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist '.

    AMEN to that. She better stop it now - or there is no telling what that child will turn out to be/do....
    To be honest - and this is sad to say - but it sounds like a serial killer in training....

    That kid just needs his rear end tanned a few times to let him know who's the boss.

    I am amazed at most of the comments on that article. They talk about how it's good that the judge and the mom did what they did, because the kid just wouldn't listen to mom. These people need the govt. to be the authority in their childs life. It's sickening.

    BTW, these are the kind of people that would also rather rely on the govt. to protect them, rather than protect themselves.

    Unfortunately it's very difficlult to fix "stupid". This lady should seriously consider taking parenting classes. Makes me wonder how well the child is being raised at home. Very poor excuse for a parent. Don't think too highly of the judge either. Not very sound "judgment" getting involved in a matter that should be the responsibility of the parent.

    What is this world coming to???

  9. Also consider, she tans the kids hide, someone calls child protective services. God forbid, a teacher sees it, combine it wiht a bruise from falling off a swing, she goes to jail for child abuse. What then?

    Once upon a time, in the long long ago( before 1930), children learned to be adults by being around adults. Now, children are raised by other kids (30 to one, most of the day) and TV. When do they learn to be adults?

    Catch 22. Do the right thing, risk losing your kids and jailtime, or let them run amok.....
