From the Star Tribune’s South Metro Police Blotter:
If you’re going to get ticketed for DUI at 16, you better do it right:
Traffic. After a vehicle accident at 4428 W. 133rd St., one of the drivers, a 16-year-old Savage boy, was cited for open bottle, underage drinking and driving, reckless driving and driving without a license.
Awww, he likes her:
Fight. A 12-year-old boy from Savage and a 13-year-old girl from Burnsville were involved in a fight at Eagle Ridge Junior High School, 13955 Glendale Road.
First, didn’t anyone ever teach this 12 year old kid that hitting girls isn’t something you do? Second, why is this even in the police blotter? What is it about schools these days that they can’t handle this sort of stuff themselves?
Yeah, yeah, they may have some sort of liaison officer but why? It’s a junior high school serving grades 7 to 9. If the cops need to be called for a 6th grade boy fighting with a girl in 7th grade, then something is seriously wrong with the world, right? Aren’t there better things we should be spending our tax dollars on than sending the cops in over a fight caused by snapped bras and raging hormones? What do you think?
