Police Pretend Students Killed to Teach Dangers of Drunk Driving

A uniformed police officer went to 20 classrooms El Camino High School in California on Monday and announced to students that several of their classmates had been killed over the weekend in alcohol-related car accidents.

I imagine the students learned another lesson — that cops and authority figures are liars.
