McLachlan rude to kids in Fiesta parade

On Saturday, I was participating in the 114th San Ignacio Fiesta parade. I had the misfortune of witnessing 59th district representative Mike McLachlan treat two small kids who were riding dirt bikes in the parade very rude. McLachlan was admonishing the kids by telling them that it was illegal to ride the dirt bikes on the street. He was very condescending as well.

McLachlan then turned to their father (who was on a mountain bike supervising the kids) and began to admonish him with the same condescension. The parade was in a controlled environment making the children's participation in the parade perfectly legal. McLachlan should learn respect for people that he thinks are beneath him and should pick on someone his own size!
