"Michael B. Rech... charged with endangering the welfare of a child... while Rech was holding a three-year-old child..."
I'm sorry, but the legal system here is entirely insane sometimes... Yeah, maybe he pushed someone, but where is this supposed "endangerment"? He was HOLDING the kid in his arms, which is when a child is the safest...
If that child was in danger, that would have come from the OTHER adult, so (s)he should be the one charged...
Whatever happened to common sense?!?

John common sense seems to have gone where your impartiality is. If I am holding a three yr old child I dont go pushing and knocking down others. I avoid the confrontation as best I can. You dont think being the agressor while holding a child presents a danger to the child? If Rech was the one knocked down then I could see some validity to your argument. However your argument smacks of partiality.

There HAS to be more to the story, as there should be NO way a person should end up in jail for trying to do that which was just done to her...
That other person took something that belonged to Miss Long, and Miss Long attempted (unsuccessfully) to do the same thing to the other person.

Sounds to me like the wrong person ended up in the clink... At the worst, they should both be locked up, and Miss Long should be facing a lesser charge than the other one.

Our "legal system" makes less sense every day.

You are assuming that Rech was the aggressor. I am actually QUITE impartial as the article doesn't specify what actually happened. Rech could very well have been trying to defend himself and the child. Therefore the write-up needs to be more clear! My point is that the child was evidently quite safe, as no injury was sustained...
