Letters: Teens Are "Skinny Dipping" in Brooklawn

  In the past few weeks, I have that been aware that people, during the early morning hours, were using my backyard pool.

This morning, at 5 a.m., I found four young teenagers in the pool. Although I could have and maybe should have called the police, I did not.

Their response when I asked them what gave them the right to use the pool, they stated others told them they could. I then inquired as to why they thought "other people" who did not live in the house had the right to allow them the use of the pool. In addition, I asked them where their parents thought they were. In bed, of course.

  I then told them to get out of the pool and to let "the others" know that if I ever again find anyone using the pool, I would call the police and have them arrested for trespassing.

  I realize this is a "prank," however the liability to me or any other household where this may be happening is very high.

  Oh, and by the way moms and dads, the girls were naked…
