In a 2010 video, Sen. Kamala Harris, who at the time was California’s attorney general, described with self-satisfaction how being tough on truancy got results when she was San Francisco’s district attorney.

Harris said parents responded to a new approach, led by her office, that called for threatening them with criminal charges and jail if their kids had chronic school absences.

Laughing, Harris said she wanted to scare parents by sending prosecutors who worked on gang and murder cases to meet with them about their children’s truancy.

Harris, who recently announced she is running for president, said in the video that she would urge the prosecutors to “really look mean."
