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.

Whoa, hold on a second. If kids are drinking alcohol, then why is the stuff legal at all?

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.

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.

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.

Teens with alcohol - Obviously the biggest threat to rights in modern society.

Naw, back in the day the ole sheriiiiiif used to just show up at the keggers and shoot holes in all of them. Finally got to where not one liquor store would let more than one keg at a time go.

Like I said, back in the day.

True. For example, God made Liberals to instill a sense of wonder in normal people.

We will always wonder what the hell is wrong with them ;)

So they will spend $200 million to fight it, after which it will be an $800 million problem each year.

Actually on your first point, that’s why society is devolving. All the stupid people that would have logf since joined the choir invisible are nannystate coddled and remain in the gene pool. The result is that as they breed, the stupid passes down another generation.

The natural order is thus disrupted.

One time my Sgt. and I confronted a large group of teens. As we were greatly out number and they did not scatter like we thought they would, we change tactics.
Routing his radio through the P.A. he asked dispatch to send all the tow trucks that were on the list to our location.
The crowd of close to 200 clear the area in record time.

Another kegger I responded to with a Reserve Officer was in the sand dunes. The Reserve was nervous and not sure that we could handle the large crowd that was there. I said it would be easy.
As we got to the top of the dune, I hollored "This is the Police". "Your all under arrest". The kids all ran to which ever car was cloest and took off. There was a couple that were trying to carry the kegs but I convinced them to leave them. The Reserve started chasing some kids, but I got him to stop, and explained to him that that was not the purpose of this.

And that is how we handled "Underaged Drinking Parties" when I was an Officer. I'm not sure how much it cost? But I don't think it cost the combined budgets of the 6 Depts in the area $200M.

Our parents gave a crap. Many of today's parents don't.

If it is warranted to take them to jail, then take them to jail. If it isn’t keep them there for a bit and release them. I’m sure the IDs could be recorded and repeat offenses judged on that.

To see them on the ground clearly not a threat, and this guy walking down the line spraying them, not really buying it.

Not many guys like that still around, I know of only one.

It was no harm except for the guy that paid all the deposits on the kegs. Got kinda expensive.

Fun days they were.

I won't wonder because I worked with liberals my entire 44 year career. We left certain topics alone because they KNEW that I had The Answers to their liberal-speak. We ended up working together very well, all understanding me and vica versa.

Not to worry.
The human race has not changed ONE iota since the beginning of the human race. We are NOT any better, nor worse, any nicer, nor meaner, any smarter, nor more stupid. Exactly the same.

What IS different is that there are SO many more of us. In 1800 there were 1 billion people on the planet. Now there are, what, six billion plus?
So it SEEMS that the natural order is disrupted because of SO MANY more folks around. More people DOES equal MORE idiots. There are more smarter folks around but somehow they don't SCREAM out at me like the stupids do.

Abraham Lincoln once said that folks' behavior can be modified to some extent but human nature cannot be changed. I guess he would know.

They're training them for the 4-shot grouping:

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.

In other "government would never lie to you" news, The Bureau of Labor Statistics tells us that in 20% Of American families, everyone is unemployed, and that the unemployment rate dropped precipitously to 6.3%.
