i don't know what's involved in a truancy fine but skipping a day or half a day of classes is normal around here. you'll get a bit of a lecture and they'll contact your parents if you're under 18 (sometimes). i guess i could understand a fine if they decided not to go for 2 weeks and didn't provide any reason.
if the police are there to protect the kids then why do they make it a goal to frighten them? isn't it a bit counter productive?
