## Another river problem..

A little harder then the lion/goat/cabbage but easier (IMO) then the King/Queen/Peasant+wifes.

A mother, a father, two sons, two daughters, a criminal and a cop need to cross a river. They have a boat for two, as usual in these situations.

1. The mother cannot be in the presense of any sons unless the father is present.
2. The father cannot be in the presence of any daughters unless the mother is present.
3. The criminal cannot be in the presence of anyone unless the cop is present.
4. Only the father, the mother and the cop can operate the boat.
5. "being in the presence of" includes both sides and the boat.
6. Any oddball logic mistakes I made in writing this are mistakes, not an indication that this is some kind of word puzzle rather then a logic puzzle.
