Is It Child Neglect to Allow Your Kid to Bike One Mile to School?

It is if you're in Elizabethton, TN. The police and mayor are threatening a mom with child neglect charges because she allows her 5th grader to ride one mile to school over a fairly safe route instead of taking the bus. The story is here.

This mom, along with some good lawyers, ought to go after this city.  This is government overreach at its worst and should be publicly shamed.

A town of 14000. At least one maroon, and not the mom, either.
