And Today’s Bonkers From America Story Is & Yes Florida of Course……… Police lieutenant confirmed he put his 3-year-old son in jail cell for struggling with potty training

Law & Crime always dig them up..

A police lieutenant in Daytona Beach Shores, Florida, admitted to an investigator for the state’s Department of Children and Families that he and the child’s mother put their 3-year-old son in a jail cell on back-to-back days because the child was having trouble with potty training.

He said he told his son that he was a cop and that he takes bad boys to jail who don’t follow the law, according to a video shared with Law&Crime on Thursday.

“So that’s what I did. I said, ‘You know, you’re not following the rules. Let go to jail,’” said Lt. Michael Schoenbrod of the Daytona Beach Shores Public Safety Department in footage dated Oct. 27, 2022. He also acknowledged handcuffing the child.

The jail incidents took place on Oct. 5 and 6, according to The Dayton Beach News-Journal. Schoenbrod said that the child’s mother (identified by the outlet as Det. Sgt. Jessica Long) did it on the first day. She only did it for perhaps three or five minutes, he said. The caseworker discussed an allegation that the mother rubbed feces on the child’s face. Schoenbrod denied that, saying he did not know where the claim came from.

“That’s absolutely disgusting,” he said.

Schoenbrod said that the boy had to be potty trained by 3 to be able to go to a certain facility (apparently a preschool or the like). By the time of the early October incident, the child’s struggles continued. Schoenbrod said he took his son to jail on the second day because the potty troubles continued. Contrary to another allegation that parents left their son at the jail by himself, he maintained that he had eyes on his child the entire time. He said he never left his son unaccompanied. Before placing the child in the cell, he checked for contraband in the space, he said.

Schoenbrod confirmed handcuffing the child, saying he did it on the front and not the back.

He said it was all effective, and the younger boy now potty trains correctly.
