Eight teenagers walking down the road in groups of two to go for a bushwalk is not a crowd at all, let alone a large one.
They are bored kids from an inherently social species of mammals – homo sapiens, or humans – doing positive things to stay healthy and fit, both physically and mentally. They don’t need or deserve the cops all over them as they are quick-stepping their way through the rainforest.
Surely our police have better things to do right now.
Like catching bad guys.
