Come on people, when we think of drinking and fighting, do we think of the Irish?

"We had an individual go to the bathroom in Aisle 2 at the local CVS. It was thrown out," he said.

EVERYBODY knows Aisle 3 is the pissing aisle at CVS. Dumbass.

No, the last thing you want at a parade is the cleaning crew. The drunks lead off, and then the floats, and then the candy throwing politicians, and then the clean-up crew.

Subby your implication is racist, and I resemble that remark. Plus, I wanna go.

The worse thing I saw at a St Patrick's day parade was drunken idiots throwing snowballs at a float with sick kids from the children's hospital.

The best thing I saw at a St. Patrick's day parade was a nagging wife biatching at her drunk husband to stop drinking because he's too drunk and to come home, and the husband turns around and punches the wife in the face, and the crowd around him cheers.

The last time I flew into Dublin, the talk radio topic on the cab ride to the hotel was along the lines of "Having established that striking your children is a matter of personal preference, when does it become acceptable to strike other peoples' children?"

/ Seriously.

That's funny, they said nothing about drunkenness and arrests being the reason when they stopped having the parade. They just said there were too many people attending and it got too big. The last time I went there, I saw uniformed Chicago Police officers drinking at 10 a.m.

Yeah, this guy is my local alder-critter, who basically spent 40 mins at a local town hall meeting repeating how DANGEROUS Halloween is. He was also Mayor Daley's nephew's college roommate at St. Mary's in Winona, MN, as well as being the nephew of the local ward boss. He's your basic Democratic machine apparatchik...

Well, I would HOPE they wouldn't just leave it there!

But how does raising penalties keep charges from being dismissed?

Seriously, are you trying to say that only nerds can't get some? Because I'm pretty sure that most cons have a crazy sex party at one hotel room. I'm never invited, BUT I KNOW THAT IT HAPPENS.

"It's one thing if you're gonna get a slap on the wrist. It's another thing to know, 'That beer just cost me $500.' It reinforces the values of the parade and the behaviors we will and won't tolerate,"

Yes, let's see how the high fines for DUI has worked out.....Ohh it didn't really stop the behavior but look at this huge stack of cash!

BarkingUnicorn: "But how does raising penalties keep charges from being dismissed?"

This.
No-one ever knows what those fines are up-front or what they'll be plead down to.
So how could the amounts be a deterrent?
All people know is whether fighting it is a ticket to no penalty at all.

And trying to actually *enforce* $500 to $1000? That's a quick trip to "good luck collecting".
It's probably just being jacked up for press value, making sure the penalties still suck after they cut people a break and for allowing some pretty painful selective enforcement to make sure the 'undesirables' don't come 'round your town at all.

What an Irish parade sans drunken idiots may look like:

Reading it on my phone, so the headline was line-split, but read it twice as "The last thing we want is to have Irish idiots at the drunken parade".
