New Michigan Law Would Keep Kids Out of Drug Stings

A Michigan lawmaker wants to pass a bill to limit police use of children in drug stings to children ages 13 and up, after Michigan narcs used a 14 year-old boy and a 13-year-old boy to set up a 36-year-old parolee. The father of the 14-year-old has filed a complaint with the Michigan Attorney General’s Office. “To me, it was absolutely ridiculous to think that this was OK,” the father told the Detroit Free Press. “If this guy ever gets out of prison, the repercussions could be huge.”
