The Parents who had their daughters arrested for throwing a party with underage drinking at the house while they were not home are under scrutiny today. This headline news story has more to it than the parents just deciding to teach their teen girls a lesson, according to the Glastonbury Police on “Fox and Friends” live Thursday morning Oct 24.
UPI.com reports that the 15 and 16-year-old girls Glastonbury, Connecticut teens were left at home alone while their parents were on a trip. Every night that their parents were away, they had a party that included underage drinking.
The girl’s parties entailed between 15-20 kids spending a good portion of the night running a muck without any parental supervision. When the parents returned early from their trip they walked in on a party. Reports say as “punishment, the unidentified parents called the police.”
While this is true, the parents were upset and called the police, but part of the call was for help disbanding the party, according to the news clip on “Fox and Friends” this morning.
Glastonbury Police Agent James Kelly believes the parents decision to call the police was “the right thing to do.” The girls were arrested on charges that they allowed minors to possess alcohol in their home.
Many are up in arms today to think that parents would actually have their girls arrested over this. Since you don’t know what the condition of the house or the kids were in, it’s hard to judge. Did the parents need help because the underage kids were unruly? Where they afraid to let them leave in the condition they were in?
This is definitely a better outcome than reading about a couple of 16-year-old kids having a fatal accident coming home from this party. Things have a very strange way of working out and quite possibly, the parents returning early from their trip might have saved a life or two.
