Alcohol Consumption in Bowden Park
Original post made by Jan Hutcheson on Sep 28, 2012
At least two people called the police from their cell phones, as this was child endangerment. Yet by 6:00 pm, no police had arrived. These people should have been cited for drinking alcohol in public and child endangerment, if not arrested. Do the police not take child endangerment seriously???

Is no one outraged by the fact that very small children were drinking leftover wine out of plastic cups that were easily within their reach.? Is no one shocked by the fact that PA police took two hours to answer four calls from witnesses about illegal drinking of alcohol in a neighborhood park,as well as child endangerment? Is no one upset by the fact that the slow response time allowed the negligent parents to get away with this, and possibly do it again?? What is wrong with our (expensive) community?

What is really sad is that all of these supposedly well-educated people do not seem to think it important that babies were drinking wine, which is 13-17% alcohol.
Any pediatrician will tell you what a harmful thing to the brain that is, and yet Palo Altans think it is overreacting.
That is such a sick, sick, sick attitude.
