Letter: Cumberland Farms is an enabler
Let’s see, Cumberland Farms posts its property, then rightfully has vehicles towed, then turns around and repays the kids for the towing and gives them gift cards. Yes sir, that really taught them a lesson.
Since when does a piece of unused property by default become student property? Why does Cumberland Farms have to notify the school? These high school kids can’t read the “No Parking” signs? That speaks volumes about our educators. I saw the signs myself, so I know they were there.
Of the six students who wrote about this issue for the Monitor (Forum page, Dec. 20), five actually got the picture. Kyler Thayer appears to have no concept of the real world. Of the remaining five, I admire Hanul Lee for having the best grasp.
Some of these kids apparently discussed the possibility of their cars being towed. That proves two things: They saw the posted signs, and they made the choice to disregard it.
Cumberland Farms becomes the enabler here. Come on, parents, instill some values in your kids!
