I have a strong word of advice to the parents of these kids who were arrested: Hire a high priced defense attorney, insist on innocence, and make sure that your kid is found not guilty. You will most likely be offered a DEAL since your child is young and this is presumably a first offense. This will put the discipling of your child into the court and the LPD, rather than in your hands and the LDP will keep records on your child which will not be public record, but could come back to haunt him some day if someone has an axe to grind. Insist on full disclosure from LPD. Do not be wooed by promises of just doing what they say and it will all be over. Stand your ground and get your child off.

i agree angela! if these kids knew their rights they would have been able to leave the parking lot without the police having to take action. A simple traffic violation like being parked in a parking lot after normal hours should not have resulted in a search of the vehicle by the police officer. Lexington police are notorious for "convincing" teenagers of giving up their rights.

Like all kids, they did things they are not supposed to. Some get caught and some don't and these were the lucky ones. Jon is right: Especially under the watchful eye of the harsh and unprofessional LPD, kids need to know their rights and stand up for them. I agree with Angela. I would hire an expensive lawyer and insure that their children take no deals.

Patrick, I hope you can get something out of what Mary Jane Donovan and others are saying. You do not benefit from publishing names of kids and it has a lasting affect on their lives. You want to report on crime? Write about how the town of Lexington utilizes our taxes. Now that's criminal '
Patrick Ball (Editor) June 08, 2012 at 02:59 PM
Hi Mara, Thanks for reading and commenting. I do understand the perspective of Mary Jane -- who actually objects to the inclusion of all names and addresses of arrested individuals before they have their day in court -- and others who have weighed in. Our practice is to post the names and information of everyone 17 and older who is arrested in town. If you're suggesting something different, I'd be interested to hear where you would draw the line when it comes to "kids." Using the Spring Street incident as an example, would you have us post the name of only the 21-year-old and not the four others who were arrested and charged? And, to respond to your other point, I'd be happy to discuss the utilization of tax dollars and report on your frustrations. You can reach me anytime at Patrick.Ball@patch.com or 781-530-0029. -patrick

Arrest records for indisposed as well as convictions are public for a period of time because of the FOIA which was intended to allow people to have disclosed the actions of the government It's only the public's thirst for gossip and fear that such records have become about the arrested individual, rather than the PD (who by the way is collecting alot of $100k plus salaries). Jon is right. Kids just read about their friends who got in trouble. What public benefit is served, one has to wonder.
Trollface Buttersworth July 24, 2012 at 10:41 AM
I completely agree. I'm a kid reading this right now....well 24 but I'm immature :) Gotta say it's massively entertaining seeing what kids in good old LHS are up to these days. But seriously the LPD is incredibly unprofessional and Patrick you could do far more good publicizing their faults rather then fueling my thirst for the latest gossip of my old town.
Trollface Buttersworth July 24, 2012 at 10:44 AM
The kids will probably just get a warning from the Clerk Magistrate in Concord as long as they're respectful and look her in the eye...if that old hag still works there. Maybe some community service and a CHINS. Good luck fellow rebels! Lexington hasn't been the same since my class graduated....at least your bringing back old traditions!
