Took a phone call that is so sad it's funny.
Caller: I want to report my daughter's boyfriend hit her.
(start taking the information)
Caller: I have his picture, I can give that to the officer. Daughter carries it in her wallet.
Me: Okay, well, you can share that with the officer.
Caller: It's his mug shot from when he was in prison. Will that help find him?
Me: Ah, your daughter carries her boyfriends mug shot? In her wallet?
Caller: Yeah. Most girls carry their boyfriends pictures in their wallet.
Me: But this is his mugshot she carries?
Caller: Ah, yeah. He was in prison for assault and got out a couple months ago. My daughter just hasn't gotten a newer picture of him, that's all.
It's the truth. The above is almost word for word a fairly recent conversation with a caller. It makes me wonder, is the mother really that comfortable with her daughter dating a felon? Thinks it is okay for her daughter to carry her boyfriend's mugshot as a love token?
