Liberty is in Bealeton, not Warrenton like the article states.

They kids need a wake up call , that you do this stuff you will be arrested and run your life just because your lazy and want to go home to play video games.

No more participation trophies, and letting them get away with everything all the time.

They make a threat , let them see how jail or prison will treat them .. put some feat back into them.
