I'm all for keeping drugs and alcohol away from kids. But why is it that cops are never allowed to, or choose not to, use common sense in these kinds of situations? If I was a cop I'd just tell the guy not to hand his beer to his son again and go about my business. There's bigger fish to fry. Making a big deal out of it just seems like a cop on a power trip getting off on farking up someones day.

Why are we so prudish about alcohol in this country? Letting a 15 year old have a beer may be illegal, but it is not a crime.

Alcohol is the new tobacco in this country. The day is coming, mark my words, when those back sections in restaurants that used to be reserved for smokers will be where they sit you if you want to drink alcohol with your meal. Beer and wine in stores will be relocated behind the cash register and they'll pass laws that make it illegal to serve alcohol in establishments where minors are allowed.

Chinchillazilla: ISubmittedThisYesterdayWithAMuchFunnierHeadline: So having my daughters help carry the groceries to the car could get me two years in the hole if I bought a bottle of wine?

Right before I turned 21 (I mean, maybe a week before), I was helping my mom pick out booze for a party. The guy at the liquor store snapped at her for letting me carry a bottle to the register. He said I was legally not allowed to even handle a sealed bottle.


Inside their store, yes. The 2nd to last thing they want to do is piss off customers. The LAST thing they want to do is piss off the liquor board or whatever the governing body is. Losing a customer hurts, losing your license to sell KILLS.

Don't most states allow a minor to drink alcohol provided they are in the presence of a parent or guardian?  Or is that only on personal property?

MileHigh: Alcohol laws in this country are complete stupid...a case in point:

CSB

I had just turned 21 a few months prior and a group of us were going to drive down from where we lived in Vermont down to Boston to catch a BoSox game.  I was the only one of the group that was over the age of 21 at the time, so I was looking forward to being able to drink at Fenway and laugh at my friends because I was able to enjoy a nice cold beer during the game while none of them could.  We get to Fenway, find our seats, and then I immediately head over to a concession stand to buy my first beer of the day.  I of course get carded and proudly hand my ID to the guy behind the counter.  He looks at it and says sorry but he can't serve me and points to a sign behind that stand that reads if you have an out of state ID, you have to be 25 to buy alcohol in Massachusetts.  I was pissed and my friends are the ones that had the laugh at my expense instead.

//was many, many moons ago, dunno if the law is still that way or not


Drinking age should be 18 AND a high school diploma.

If at 18 you can legally:
-vote
-get married
-do porn
-sign a contract
-own a gun
-serve in the military/fight for your country/die for your county
then why can't you drink?

I believe that is on personal property.  I'm sure its not every state or city.  As well, I assume you have to be the parent or guardian (so you can't let your teenager throw a party with booze for all their friends).

At least in Wisconsin if a minor is with their parent, they can drink at restaurants and bars as well. At least I remember hearing that at some point.


I have a WI servers license, and yes this is the case, parent/guardian/spouse over 21. However a bar has the right to refuse service, so they can decline to.

The only real tricky thing our class couldnt decide on was serving a pregnant woman. Everyone was in agreement that if a pregnant woman wanted a small glass of wine or a beer or something they probably would serve them, but after that would decide to cut them off, BUT, technically pregnancy is a protected status, so refusing to serve a woman because she is pregnant is discriminatory, in a legal sense. But everyone agreed that regardless of the law, if she wanted to make a stink and sue, just take your story to the news media and you look like the hero.

Those cops were told to write tickets / kick out anyone underage alcohol. They don't give a rats ass about fair. All they care about is doing what their boss told them to do. They know regardless of the situation that if they follow their orders that the bosses will have their back no matter what they do. And we see here in this situation the head cop doesn't say that his officers acted inappropriately or that they should have just warned the guy. He comes right out and says the guy is lucky his boys cut him a break or he would be facing serious jail and fines. This is how all cops act for the most part.

When you base your performance reviews of cops and/or security guards on how many arrests they make and how many people they harass then this is what happens.

CSB: I was at an Indianapolis Indians game with my grandpa one time. I went to the bathroom and he picked up two beers for us. I had just turned 21 a few months before. A kid who couldn't have been more than 18 demanded to see my ID as we were going back to our seats. He had a nametag on but no team apparel or anything identification-wise. I told him I'd show a cop my ID but not him. He started spouting a bunch of nonsense, so I just walked over to the nearest cop and told him that the gentleman over there wanted to check my ID. He looked at the kid, said "not this shiat again" and checked my ID. As I was walking away I could hear him tell that kid to "Cut that shiat out and let me know if you see someone who might be underage."

Faux security for the win?
