12-year-old Rose Bowl Parade protester arrested: Where are the parents?

Rose McCoy was one of the 29 people arrested at the Rose Bowl Parade on New Year’s Day and after being released she was seen on the CBS 2 News on Wednesday, night bragging about her decision. This isn’t any typical child, the 12-year-old girl who previously detained for the same stunt at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade feels that SeaWorld is not treating the animals at their facility properly.

While the many adults arrested have the choice of being detained for their beliefs, the idea of the 12-year-old being put in harm’s way is another matter. The idea is dangerous. It’s quite obvious that the youngster is being manipulated by her parents and put on camera to draw attention.

The student is said to get straight A’s in school and has always been social active (let’s remember she is only 12.) However, what is missing from the entire picture is her parents. This behavior is why some people shouldn’t be parents as the manipulation is outrageous.

Many young protégés have showcased talent to share with the world. Musicians, singers and even doctors. However, those skills were discovered and offered guidance. Being arrested for a belief at such a young age has to be manipulated into development.

Rose McCoy might look good on camera, but her parents need to be reviewed closely. Emily McCoy, Rose’s mother, was also arrested Wednesday, for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. And the mother was prideful that her 12-year-old was arrested.

“I have nothing but pride; getting choked up here as a mom, that she is so passionate about stuff,” said Rose McCoy about her daughter.

It’s pretty obvious that this mom needs some serious parenting skills if she is letting her preteen daughter drag her across the country and get arrested.

Rose McCoy and Emily McCoy will be expected back in court for the charges for stopping the Rose Bowl Parade on New Year’s Day. Viewers are also hoping the family will be reviewed by social services to see what is causing this unhealthy family dynamics. Perhaps there needs to be an intervention to stop a 12-year-old from being put in danger.
