What I want to know is WHY did they presume and act this way? Is it now SOP to approach and attempt to arrest people simple for the "appearance" of something? "There's a young person, she *might* be underage and she *might* have just bought alcohol. Let's take her down." Is this for real????? Did the cashier make a false call?
Did she *try* to buy alcohol?
This doesn't make any sense, why they would approach her from the start just because they thought she might have bought alcolhol and not knowing her actual age?
It's a class 1 misdemeanor.... That kind of response is highly unnecessary.
Why the sting type operations, well it seems they have no interest in preventing crime only to punish it ?
