Teen Calls Cops on Dad for Taking Away Her Phone

This dad is my favorite.

A 16-year-old girl called the police on her father after he took her phone away as punishment for having it password protected, Ohio officials say.

Bodycam footage shows the moment officers responded to the 911 call made by the teen, who told dispatchers: ‘My father took my property, which is an $800 phone that doesn’t belong to him. He didn’t buy it.’

Lt James Wilson of the South Euclid Police Department said officers recognized the situation as a teaching opportunity, telling WKYC: ‘Certainly if we were busy, it would be pushed to the back burner, but we still have an obligation to respond.’

The father, Anthony Robertson, and his daughter were both sitting outside the home when officers arrived on Saturday afternoon.

The teen, whose name has not been released because she is a minor, can be heard saying: ‘I want my phone.’

Robertson then explains: ‘I took her phone because she’s a juvenile, and I don’t want her to have it.

‘I can’t inspect it, because the phone is locked, so I took it away.’

    Good for dad.

    Good for responding officer.

    I would hope a liberal officer In Madison would do same in this situation. Liberal lexicon wants to undermine parents, discipline, and the family.
