    I think the police is doing right job.All students who are roaming aimlessly in the city must be arrested by them and handed over to the school authority.The NYC's policy is great and i like it very much.

DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU POST: These Police Officers are not “criminalizing” NYC Students. They are simply enforcing the NYC Department of Education Regulations requiring that minors from the age of 6 to 17 attend school on a full time basis. Minors not in compliance with the DOE’s attendance requirements, when school is normally in session, are considered truants; henceforth, Police Officers are mandated to take custody of these minors and deliver them back to school. Most likely, the officers are obtaining the truants’ pedigree information, which is written into a report that is later signed by school officials; this report is the Police Officer’s proof that custody of the truant was handed over to the school. If you wish not to continue seeing Police Officers “criminalizing” students for arriving late to school; then write to your NYC Council Rep (or the mayor for that fact) and let them know that you would like this law to be nullified because you prefer to see NYC youths roaming aimlessly throughout the city and becoming unfazed by the lewdness and injustice that plagues our community on a daily basis.
