you see cops are smarter than a fith graders
A 'gateway crime" ... LMAO!!!
I like the Cool Hand Luke reference most.
We'll this is just a gateway crime, kids are sure to graduate to cutting parking meters down with pipe wrenches.
Sadly in many cases the parents are in shock that the police would even have the gall to accuse these perfect children of a crime or mischevious activity even if caught in the act or on film doing it.Some parents would even say that the police set up a trap and tricked the little angels into being bad or that it "must" be someone elses fault.
I have to say the cops did the right thing here, but my guess is some of the parents aren't going to follow suit.
Police handled it very well in my opinion. Items like this are best handled in the home. No need to make a federal case out it -
Kids will be kids-- a little adult intervention can help prevent the next prank that may be more serious.
Officers get a thumbs-up from me-

11 and already on probation, great parenting at work here.
Must be a slow news day...
It's the fact that the officers could actually catch 11 year olds who are running that I find comforting and refreshing- some don't look like they've done any excercise at all since the academy. It's nice to know that these two are in good shape!
As far as the kids - I'm sure these two officers analyzed the situation and handled it the way they were trained to. I doubt there was an over reaction - they intervened and released them to their parents so I'm not sure where the over reacation is?
So, good job guys for handling what could have been a sensitive situation properly - now continue to stay in shape!
