The police department made a big case because out of this. I am not saying it was dumb, but what I am trying to say is that the police department could have only sent a couple police officers to the scene. This was a pressured conflict. Maddie did good by telling the police about this. The police didn’t send any duty officers that were supposed to fix everything.
