On Friday, September 28, I ran into one of the children and her mother who witnessed the alcohol consumption and child endangerment episode the day before at Bowden Park. They were at Rinconada, having vowed not to go to Bowden again. The mother stated that she, too, had called police from her cell phone at a few minutes after 5:00 pm. Yet by 6:00 pm no police officers had arrived. Does anyone know if the police ever arrived at Bowden Park, and were the delinquent parents caught in the act, or had they already left? Was anyone cited? Can signs be posted forbidding the drinking of alcohol in neighborhood parks, especially in the presence of small children? What happened was irresponsible and negligent. Preventive measures should be taken to keep this from happening again!
