E got too big for his britches last night. (OK I know you'll believe that part.) He didn't get physical with me or steal from me this time but it got past the point that I'm willing to tolerate. I called police, they came, one stayed outside with E and another came into house to talk to me. He seemed to be trying to provoke me to get angry- the policeman. He was saying it's my job to raise my son, not his or the state's, etc. I tried to excplain, then bit my tongue and just said I had no inclination or desire to argue with him or any gov official. I told him E and I just can't live together anymore. He said he was taking E in and would be issuing a warrant for me. Why would he issue a warrant for me? He said for calling 911 and making a false charge. I told him to do whatever he needed and I'd deal with it the best I could. I asked what he was charging E with and he said show-cause and failure to pay restitution in our old (original) jurisdiction. I told him that can't be right because I paid the only restitutiion I've been aware of long ago and E hasn't even been back in that county. Oh well. He said I'd have to come and pick E up after the booking or he'd have to put him in foster caare. I told him to put him in foster care. That was around 12:30 - 1:00 last night. 20 mins ago I get a call saying E will appear before a judge this morning to explain restitution issue. Where is he? In detention center in original jurisdiction! 2 hourss away from here! Now I KNOW that clerk put in her system that the restitution was paid. Idon't see how this deputy was allowed to drive E there but maybe they came up here and got him during the night. I wouldn't even be able to find my copy of the receipt showing zero balance, call into work, get showered/dressed and drive there by 8:30 this morning. I think they know it's a bogus charge- what I don't understand is why can't they haul E's rear back to this jurisdiction once they figure that out. Even if in foster care they are required to keep him as close as home as possible, at least to start out with, unless physical harm is at stake- at least I thought. They are saying I have to be there to be released to. I told the deputy here last night not to expect me to pick him up (he told me they were booking him here and he'd be here). He's a minor- he either goes to parent or dss. HUH HUH- well doesn't he have to be brought back to parents' jurissdiction either way if it's shown THEY made a mistake on the charges? I don't know if it's true that this jurisdiction is going to file charges against me for calling in last night but I don't see how they could make that stick when they have taken him 2 hours away for not paying something that is in the clerk's system that he paid- or I should say- I paid. I have a feeling this goes back to the fact that E isn't in the courts system here in this jurisdiction so the only court that can alter his original Department of Juvenile Justice sentence/order for parole is that original jurisdiction, unless he committed another offense that they know about and can charge him with. I'm really inclined to go back to bed for another 30-45 mins then go to work and let them figure it out on their own this time. If they chrage me with abandonment, I'll just have to deal with it. I'm sure not going down the road of "services" to keep him in the home again. I'm soo0o looking forward to explaining this to my new supervisor. Not.
