California police ticketing kids with coupons for doing the right thing

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Jul 27, 2014

Police in California are handing out tickets to kids, but they're not for breaking the law. They're for doing the right thing.

12-year-old Daniel Torres received a ticket for looking both ways before crossing the street, which could be redeemed for a free Slurpee.

The tickets are part of a program the police department in Azusa, California is doing with 7-Eleven, which hopes to teach kids that it pays to do the right thing.
