It’s hard to tell if there are more reports than ever before about unruly groups of kids requiring residents to call the police. Not surprising the kids are gone before the police can catch them.

I’ve been told there were also at least 3 parties over the last weekend where the word spread quickly over IM’s that the parents were not home and the kids were organizing parties. Whether it’s true or not or just a rumor, the word gets out on the street pretty quickly so we’d better be paying attention.

This is dangerous stuff and we need to know where our kids are going, who they’re with, and what they’re doing. Dumping flower pots in the upper village is one thing. Partying without supervision is another!
