After doing four live reports on Awake with News Four from the marked up intersection of Route D and Route 94 Tuesday morning, I wanted to get reaction to the mess from people driving by.
A guy in a pick-up pulled into the gravel lot we were on and had plenty to say.
"This is not as bad as it looks," Mark Zawojski told me. "These are just a bunch of kids getting together having a lot of fun. Mischevious, sure. But what harm is it really doing? So as far as (potential) felonies for these children, I think we ought to wave the felonies and just let the kids come out and clean it up. I've seen it worse than this in the years that I've lived out here. These are just kids. I've done it. You would have done it if you went to this school and all the kids in the area do it. It's a rite of passage."
Anyone agree or disagree with Mark Zawojski?
