What is it with our youth today? They disrespect Police, themselves and everyone around them. Nine times out of ten they get a slap on the wrist for their charges and are often out committing the same offences again. I can imagine how frustrating this would be for Police. These teenagers not only put their own lives on the line they endanger the lives of the innocent public, the Police Officers that have to deal with their thoughtless actions.
