    Meanwhile, Colorado has more money than they know what to do with, and less crime.

      @JMO-Although it does sound like overkill you must admit that they broke the law and were dumb enough to do it in public in a park. The answer seems to me to be real simple, if you do not want to get arrested, do not break the law, and if you are going to break it be smart enough not to do it in a public place. Now they have this on their record and it was so un-necessary.
