You are right. Back then the police would have probably offered you a ride to make sure you got home safely.
Nowadays they'd probably take you to the station, ask why you were out past citywide curfew and yell at your parents for being neglectful, after they
turn the parents in to CPS. I remember, years ago (maybe 10 years or so), my brother was walking around the city with his friend's at 2 or 3 am.
Not causing trouble, just going to different convenience stores, friend's houses, playing basketball at the park, whatnot. The police stopped them
asked is their parents knew where they were. My brother, ever the smart@ss, said my mother said I could be out, then mouthed off the cop about how it
was none of his business, etc... The cop made them all go home and made sure they got there.
