I had patrol car pull up outside my house with lights flashing and had 2 armed police officers come to the door and ask to see what was going on. I brought them in and showed them the vest and all the medical paraphernalia and explained that the kids did not want to do it. My wife and I were totally mortified. Fortunately, we don't live in that neighborhood anymore.
