Hey, I was a teenager during the 60s when women AND men had long hair. Long hair on a boy? Big deal.
Personally, I can't see wasting the taxpayers' money going to court over making a 5-year-old cut his hair. His father's Native American and they want to keep the kid's hair long. Guess what? Let them do it.
The real issue is that some control freak wants to force somene else to back down. There are times when an offense or a crime is worth going to court over, but whether someone cuts his son's hair or not is hardly an offense or a crime. There are better ways to spend taxpayer dollars than going to court over something like that.
