The visit from police stemmed from a complaint of noise and lots of juveniles drinking and being disorderly outside the home. Four officers, with help from sheriff’s deputies, spent about two hours “processing” dozens of party-goers to determine which were younger than 21 and drinking, according to the Centralia Police Department. Seventeen young people between the ages of 15 and 20 were cited for minor in possession of alcohol, according to police. Six of them who were under 18 were released to their parents, Sgt.

    I remember being that “non-innocent” as a kid. Boy it is lucky we ever survived teenage years. For kost of these kids charged with underage drinking they have diversion programs where they do community service and do not have a permanent record. There does come a time though when they have to realize that our choices have consequences.

    That is a hell of a turnout for a party in town.

    There is no easy solution for these situations, but one problem that happens when these parties get busted is that all of a sudden you have several drunk teenagers jumping behind the wheel to get out of dodge before they are detained at the party to face possible trouble.

    I remember when I was young and attended these things if somebody had too much to drink they could ask around for somebody to drive their vehicle and take them home or more often sober ones at the party (back when we had parties usually only about a quarter of the kids would even be considered drunk, another quarter to third would nurse one beer all night to “fit in” and the rest wouldn’t be drinking at all) would see who was drinking and volunteer or even insist that they drive them home. Or the some of the kids drinking would just stay the night. However, when you have the police storming into these parties it turns into chaos and it becomes get the hell out of there time whether you are drunk driving or not.

    there were no parents at the home. the owners are all in there 20’s and live there alone. They have parties all the time. Most teens believe that if they are on private property the cops can not bust them. lol I laugh everytime my daughter tells me that. I guess a few found out the hard way that yes they can bust you.

    No, No, and I am not part of the problem with this country of not understanding personal responsibility.

    As soon as you divluge the same info….i would be glad to.

    Thanks for the offer.

    Falsetto, please tell me you are not a parent or ever intend to breed.

    “then it’s better that they don’t have their cases adjudicated.”

    That would be foolhardy UNLESS they find an adult to take responsibilty. Let’s not forget that these are children in the eyes of the law and therefore bear less responsibility than the rest of us who aren’t children.

    But, bear in mind that if adjudication against these kids goes foreward, more than one life will be ruined in that they will have a ‘minor in possession’ or a ‘minor in consumption’ on their record untily at least seven years after plea or conviction.

    If after a lifetime of after-school specials, cops coming to the schools, newspaper reports and everything else, those ‘innocent’ children couldn’t figure out that if you get caught, bad things happen … then it’s better that they don’t have their cases adjudicated. Let them learn now when the record will be sealed when they become legal adults.

    Unless you’re using innocent to mean dumb, in which case I’ll certainly agree that they were that.

    “Innocent” children? They were there, they were probably drinking, and need to held accountable. You may be right about who and how the booze was purchased. It has not been so long ago that a young man was killed after a drinking party. A good thing that this was broken up before something bad happened.

  10. Falsetto says:

    Someone provided the alcohol. Someone most likely used a fake i.d. and a friendly clerk looked the other way.

    So, why are there no adults mentioned in the report? Are we to believe the parents were just innocent bystanders unaware of what was going on?

    Alcohol is one of the deadliest drugs and is especially harmful to young adults in that it makes them more likely to be victims of violent crime and/or end up committing crimes.

    Somebody dropped the ball on this one big-time. Hopefully the innocent children will have their cases adjudicated once they sort things our and find the adults who are truly responsible.
