The Father, the Son, and the Church Bus Driver

Jeffrey Williamson says his four kids told him they were getting in the church van to go to church. But only three went to pray: Justin, 8, went to play, without his father’s knowledge. Police found him at a store in Blanchester, Ohio — and arrested Jeffrey for “endangering” him. Church bus driver Eric Cook says it’s his fault for asking only the other Williamson kids, not their father, whether Justin was going to church. Jeffrey Williamson says it’s Justins fault.
