The story isn't the story here. Sure, it's odd that police would make teenage vandal suspects do pushups instead of calling their parents and/or taking them to the police station.
But check out the local reporter at the 1:10 mark. It's a good thing he showed us exactly what was going on! I wouldn't have been able to piece the story together without his demonstration.
But wait! That guy's got some competition. Check out this Fox TV affiliate in California. A black friday brawl is a local reporter's dream to get off the house fire and 18-wheeler accident beat. And just for fun see if you can keep track of the number of fighting and Christmas puns.
