Two women were charged with assaulting police over the weekend in Massapequa.
But it wasn't the only serious charge involved. The alleged assaults occurred after one of the women for using two children in a shoplifting scheme, police said.
The mother of the children was the other woman arrested and she was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. But should there be additional criminal penalties if somebody uses a child to commit a crime in situations like this.
