Goldilocks arrested for vandalism

In Goldilocks and the Cops, the “crazy” blonde intruder doesn’t get away. Momma Bear calls the police, who handcuff Goldilocks and charge her with breaking and entering, vandalism and “general uncontrolled behavior.”

A parent complained when the story was taught in a third-grade class at an East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania school. Miguel Velez said the story is offensive to police and includes inappropriate language (“crazy”), reports the Pocono Record. Board member Ronald Bradley, a former police officer, also disliked the story’s portrayal of police.

I remember as a child thinking that Goldilocks had no right to go into someone else’s house, eat their food  and break their chairs.
