Friday was training day for several dozen Las Vegas Metro officers. The topic: busting underage drinking parties.
Police say underage drinking costs Nevada taxpayers about $607 million each year. In addition to traffic fatalities and other accidents, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention has linked underage drinking to homicides, sexual assaults, larceny and auto theft.

Shoot dogs, crack skulls, take cell phones. What else is there to know? /s
Whoa, hold on a second. If kids are drinking alcohol, then why is the stuff legal at all?
And take the beer back to the station house.
Yep, you’ll be able to prevent 100% of the right of passage for kids into adulthood alright. /s
Better to simply watch over the events from the perimeter and keep them under control, rather than to jack boot everyone into submission.
When I was a kid, two officers would show up at the front door and ask that the party be toned down. It always was.
If the officers today were more cordial, they wouldn’t need a swat team to respond to these events. It’s disgusting.
In my opinion, that officer should have been cut lose the day that photo became public. Assault charges should have been leveled against him too, and he should have been black-balled from being hired again in the capacity of a law enforcement officer.
And they wonder why drugs are popular.
How did any of us over 40 ever survive? It’s a mystery.
I didn’t know that was the most pressing issue in Vegas. /s
Did you ever read about the incident? IIRC, the protestors were given the choice of going to jail or being sprayed or some such.
Lol. Chief Bill sure did know how. Let those
spoiled brats children under aged people have to call mommy and daddy to bail them out of the pokey. They won't let that happen again. Very embarrassing to have to call mommy and daddy.
Of course, those
brats spoiled babies under aged people probably LEARNED what they knew about booze from mommy and daddy's liquor cabinet in the den/living room.
Count me in! I’ll buy some brewskies for the partay!
Lol. We survived the same way everyone else did in the entire history of the human race.
We are JUST smart enough not to get killed--
JUST smart enough to not get too badly maimed--
JUST smart enough to get through life without TOO many bruises, bumps, catastrophes and such.
Apparently the latter are part of the necessary learning experience of the human race.
The REAL mystery is our Creator. What an imagination He has.
Wouldn’t work on the kids from the Bottoms, though.
Teens with alcohol - Obviously the biggest threat to rights in modern society.
Some tough cookies???
Let’s just say they’re the victims of income inequality.
