Boy arrested for singing along to sweary song in park

“I THINK the arresting officer’s actions were just as abhorrent as the language used by my son,” said Steve Pierce. “I have a big problem with criminalizing a 15-year-old boy over a mistake that wasn’t directed in animosity or meant to assault anybody in any way.”
The problem began when Pierce’s 15-year-old son was in McChesney Park , Port St. Lucie, Florida. The lad was singing along to a tune on his MP3 player. The lyrics included two swears and a “racial slur”.
A passing copper hears the singing and makes an arrest.
Port St. Lucie Police Chief John Bolduc explains:
“We reserve arrest as the last resort, but in this particular case, a point needed to be made.”
Always good to know that the police are making arrests not to uphold the law but to make a point.
The lad is due to go to court. He has been banned from the park for a year.
