Praise for deputies quick July 4 response

In the late hours of July 4 our local Sheriff’s Department did an extraordinary job handling an incident at Valencia Valley Park.

Scores of kids started showing up and began to light fireworks. At one point they were chasing and shooting each other with Roman candles (stupid, I know).

Seven cruisers arrived from all sides, blocking the kids’ cars. Deputies raced across the grass and down the paseo pursuing the youngsters.

What made my night and what impressed me about all of this came next. Whoever was in charge made the best decision ever — ordering the kids who got caught to clean up the mess they made at the park.

So for the next hour I got to watch the spoiled brats pick up trash and fireworks with their non-cellphone hands.

I thank all of the officers for a job well done,
