Nebraska’s ‘Safe Haven’ law

A big story here in Omaha is the way the recently implemented “safe haven” law is being used by parents/guardians to drop off teenagers. This shows how ridiculously out of control our national mood is, where an increasingly common assumption of the populace is that the government’s role is to take responsibility for problems I don’t want to address myself. After 40 years of Great Society programs, multiplying and expanding government social welfare agencies at every level, we still have people avoiding real help and solutions provided by these agencies, preferring instead to anonymously drop off problem kids because the government won’t hold them accountable. It’s pathetic.

The local news station is proposing an ad campaign to illustrate just how ridiculous this is:
