I think this article was very disrespectful to the Signal Mountain Police Department.
To say that the police lack restraint...that's rediculous. What about the teens lacking restraint? These kids know that the legal drinking age is 21. I know that "kids will be kids" but they also know the potential consequences of these actions. They made the choice to drink. So if they have a criminal record and can't graduate or get into the college of their dreams, I believe that is their own fault.
If the cops would've just turned their heads and something tragic ended up happening as a result of the drinking, the police would still get the blame. The question would be, "The police knew these kids were drinking. Why didn't they do something about it?"
I think we should be proud that our police officers take their job seriously.
The teens should remember that.
