And they're surprised????

When the headline reads: "2nd out-of-state teen dropped at Omaha hospital", it surprises me more teens AREN'T dropped off.

Nebraska's safe-haven law is unlike similar laws in that it allows anyone, not just a parent, to drop off a child, of any age, at any state-licensed hospital without fear of prosecution for abandonment. The law doesn't absolve anyone of other charges like abuse or neglect.

I've thought about dropping off the husband, but the kids are pretty safe(for now) ;)
