Kelly Zierdt, 11, Is Up Before Judge For Writing Her Name In Wet Cement
KELLY Zierdt is the 11-year-old New Jersey sixth-grader up before a judge on a charge of writing her name in wet cement outside their Middlesex Township Middle School. Police captured Zierdt and her mates in the act of writing her name.
And then, as her dad says, the situation “has snowballed into this giant catastrophe“.
You see, her refused to pay a 250 fine to the school. He was presented with a parent/child and police agreement. He won’t sign it.
The police want dad to punish his daughter in a way they agree and approve of. Can he beat her black and blue? No, sir. Can he make her build a statue to the police chief from cement? No, sir. Lt. Mike Colacci of the Middlesex Police Department suggests “a 5 o’clock curfew, or chores around the house“.
“In this case they had to write an essay as to why they did this.”
And while the police actively encourage paperwork on pain of law, the child says:
“I feel scared.”
Which kind of makes us think she won’t do it again. And the police are unhappy with her dad, because..?
