Passing the blame

Enough already! Let’s give a round of applause to our local police force. I think the real issue here is parent/child responsibilities.

Since when is it OK to violate the law and think you shouldn’t pay the price if you’re caught? Underage drinking? Driving while impaired? Running and hiding from the police? Wake up! The laws are the laws.

The police wouldn’t have been at the home if the kids weren’t violating the law. Wouldn’t it be nice to see these parents and their children take responsibility for their actions, instead of trying to blame the problem on others?
