Fifty in a fight at 2:30AM hmmmm-not having dinner -so...were they proofed or found to have been in the bar drinking-do they supply wristbands for underage drinkers?Perhaps this was an opportunity to say Busted and get out of town Kemistry-but they were Garden City police with training similar to SF police-none- no say-politics and money rule the puppet police force.Such is life in privileged areas.
