  1. When I spent a year in the US about 12 years ago (aaah time flies)… I lived in a family with four kids and the son always ended up in trouble. A few times he was escorted home by a police officer. Coming from Sweden I was very shocked on how “little” of a “crime”
    you had to do for the police to get involved. It didn’t make sense to me in so many ways but I guess cause back home we would get punished in a gentler way. What you get arrested for in US we got an hour or two detention for back home.
