Police State City


When George Pulido took his sons to another child's birthday party, he never dreamed it would get him a summons to court. But he didn't count on the New York City police. Pulido says they were walking back from the party, and a small balloon his oldest son was carrying hit the sidewalk and burst. Unfortunately for him, some cops were nearby, and they gave him a ticket for making unreasonable noise. "I couldn't believe it. It was just a normal-size party balloon and it was an accident," he said.
