D.C. TV reporter giving extensive coverage to underage drinking in wealthy DC suburbs receives hate mail and death threats. She was present when police arrested lots of teens at an underage drinking party and told how parents berated police. Another parent asked his kid why he didn’t run faster so he wouldn’t be arrested. Only one parent scolded her child for giving into peer pressure and engaging in illegal activity. And this is the elite group that Charles Murray, in his book Coming Apart, says should be preaching their values to society in order to cure underclass poverty!!! Give me a break.
