    They were on the property before they got a warrant.
    I think they should get sued.

        This party was approx 30 under aged people drinking. And how many adults were at a party at the Surf drinking? And how many of those adults drove after drinking. Just saying.

          I think the key differences in your statement are underage and adult. It is illegal to drink alcohol under the age of 21 so the 30 teens at the party were breaking the law. The adults at the surf were within the law as it is legal for them to drink alcohol. Now I would agree that plenty of the adults probably drove home above the legal limit and they should be arrested and prosecuted for breaking the law just as the underage drinkers should. With that being said the drunk driver, no matter what their age is, is a much bigger danger to him/her self and the general public than the underage drinker. I think we can agree on that.

    Teenagers have been drinking since the discovery of alcohol. What they don’t realize is, that they have many years after 21, to get drunk and stupid, and it’s legal. The bust possibly saved someone’s life that night.

        The government also says that at the age 18 a person can join the military. So basically, an 18 year old can fight for this country but can’t have a drink.

    They should have invited some rich kids – the party would still be going on.

      They obtain a search warrant and then execute it.
