On Thursday, September 27, between 3:30 and 6:00 pm, ten women and one man drank 8+ bottles of wine in the presence of more than 25 children in Bowden Neighborhood Park-- on the playground itself! Unfortunately, at least twenty of these children belonged to the ten women, who seemed oblivious to the fact that children under the age of three were drinking residual wine from the plastic cups left on a low table within their easy reach.
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???
