Jodie Hofkamp-Echols: Rod Olsen needs to take responsibility for behavior

April 20, 2014 

My comment has nothing to do with politics; it is about what is right. I don’t care what your role in life is, if you are an adult it is your job and moral obligation to take care of and protect children. I am mystified by Rod Olsen’s belief that he is “110 percent vindicated” as he pleads guilty to a misdemeanor of disturbing the peace for yelling at a child. His punishment includes eight weeks of anger management counseling, three years of informal probation and what amounts to a restraining order! And his wife believes it was all based on a “ridiculously false accusation”? Grow up, people, take responsibility for your behavior and figure out how to become the adult you are meant to be!
