Letter: Pretty tame arrest

The kid who was arrested last week most likely has never been in that situation before. Also, he may have been pretty stoned. Hopefully he and his parents can learn and grow from this experience instead of being angry at the law. It is true that the kid did everything wrong. He smoked weed in public and totally resisted arrest. Thank God he was about to take a bus instead of driving a car. I think the police did what they had to do without going overboard. The only real violence was his screaming and his friends’ really young and inexperienced comments. Pretty tame arrest compared with other parts of the world.
