I'm sure those kids paid for prom too.  I hope they got their money back.

Oh f*ck-off guy. I didn't go to my prom and I turned out OK.

/of course I didn't go to prom because it was more fun to drink and bang college chicks than try really hard just to get a handy from some prude high-school chick

They say all the tests came back negative for alcohol but the district spokeswoman says because the students didn't arrive to prom until 10:30 p.m.-- by the time the testing was finished -- it was too late to go inside.

If you pay for prom but don't bother showing up until it's almost over, what grounds do you have to demand your money back? This is like the douche who shows up in the middle of the third act of a play and gets stopped from entering by the usher until the curtain drops, and then demands a full refund. No, at most you're entitled to a refund of those last 15 minutes, but really, it's your own fault for showing up so late. Next time, be on time.

I thought youthful shenanigans were a part of growing up - be it going to prom, a bit of drinking at prom, banging college chicks if you get a chance, streaking, whatever.  Can't a kid just be a kid anymore?

In this day and age, there are no longer winners or losers.  Just losers.

This is NOT like someone disrupting a play by showing up late. If you've ever been to a school dance, people do not get disrupted by people entering or leaving the building. There is no plot to follow and people don't require quiet to concentrate on the subtleties of the acting.

 I'm not even sure if your being serious or just trying to provide some "counterpoint".

There was a bottle of booze in the party bus and they showed super late.

ManateeGag: I'm sure those kids paid for prom too.  I hope they got their money back.


Why? They show up at 10:30pm on a party bus that had alcohol on it. It was their fault. They showed up when it was almost over under circumstances that were going to get them tested. They caused the delay, and by showing up at the end, the delay they caused made them miss the prom.
 
2014-05-06 06:50:43 PM
If kids take a BUS to prom and have been drinking, that's kind of the point, isn't it? Responsible drinking should NOT be punished.


If I was a parent, I'd sue for tickets, bus expenses, and tux rental.
 
2014-05-06 06:52:19 PM
And here come the lawyers!
 
2014-05-06 06:52:32 PM
They were denied entry to the prom because they were held up by the breathalyzer tests rather than being late. That doesn't mean the prom was almost over, just the doors shut to new entries at a certain point with the event continuing until later (say doors close at 10:30pm and event lasts until midnight).  Given they had arrived prior to the doors closing and the administration prevented their entry through a, perhaps justified but extra screening measure, they should have been allowed entry. The administration turning them away caused these persons damage and I would expect some lawsuits to recover damages by the administrators actions.   Tickets to the prom, the outfits, photograph costs, etc. that were paid up front were denied their actual use through the schools actions as the students had not done anything that should have denied entry.

2014-05-06 06:55:32 PM
The sad part of this story is a school official is giving out breathalyzer tests to kids. There is no scenario in my mind where this is ok. If you have reason to believe a kid is publicly drunk, call the cops. Otherwise, how could anyone possibly be fine with this?
 
2014-05-06 06:55:51 PM
Somebody already mentioned they showed up at 10:30PM.  Nuff said.

As if not wanting to go, and planning, paying, clothes, limo, flowers, getting there and being denied are the same thing.
 
2014-05-06 06:58:07 PM
Heck, I couldn't even be convinced to go to my high school graduation ceremony never mind the prom. I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would want to go to their high school reunion. If that was the highlight of your life and you've had no achievements since then, I guess maybe but otherwise...?
 
2014-05-06 06:59:07 PM
Why would you not show up until 10:30 if it wasn't because you were getting hammered. Double fail.

They showed up with a bottle of booze at 10:30. If they would have showed up at 8:30, sans booze, I bet they would have gotten in. Also, it's been ruled in several courts that children at school, functionally, don't have rights.

Wtf?! Troll attempt?
*researches*

Not sure whether to laugh, or laugh harder.

You *really* think you're going to have 100% all of the time with that?( Hence the reducing down a terrifying time for most women who do become pregnant while on the pill/BC Method to a joke- not even a joke- a supposed Meme? )

All other BC is at most 99.98%, except for sterilization/abstinence.

I hope you, and every douchebag who's been trying to make this a meme goes on the gel, and when it fails, lose the love of your life, AND have to pay child support for 18 years after getting genetically determined the father.

May the odds be ever in your favor.
 
2014-05-06 07:06:38 PM
Why can't we just accept the fact that some kids will break the rules and drink? If someone is acting intoxicated, then pull them aside and test them, then punish accordingly. Otherwise who cares? It's not as if the school is serving alcohol or letting them openly drink.
 
2014-05-06 07:07:27 PM
This is why they make parties separate from the school sponsored prom.

Isn't this exactly what the school did? It isn't the schools fault that the kids showed up right before the end.

The school district says this is an unfortunate situation -- but it has to ensure the safety of all students.

Yeah.....


Bull.

farking idiot teachers. There is a test thats very cheap and works instantaneously, not some computerized crap. In the military we had these plastic tubes with these yellowish crystal things inside. You blow, the crystals change color, tells how much alcohol is in system based on the color. We used them all the time, so why can't schools use them? Would have been more cost effective and no one would have had to wait hours. 40 kids would have been in prom in minutes at most. And as for the innocent kids complaining and cursing about the test? Anyone would have done that, so why discipline them for it? They're pissed, and rightfully so, so let them let off some steam for farks sake. This zero tolerance crap is getting way out of hand, seriously considering home schooling for my future kids.

I still fondly remember when during my senior year the Party Patrol busted a root beer kegger in the woods. Actual beer party was somewhere else a week later.

I wasn't into drinking at the time but my rebellious teen side thought the idea was brilliant and it went off without a hitch.

I was tempted to go so I could see what became of everyone, but then I realized it would probably be a bunch of people trying to show off how awesome they had become. I kept in touch with a few people I went to highschool with and the rest I didn't keep in touch with for a reason.

Binaca was a huge thing when I was in HS. I was totally sober at all my proms, but probably would have blown higher than Rob Ford.

What if the alcohol was on the bus already? Not hard to imagine some previous guests stashed it in some compartment no staff decided to look in.

Is any of that illegal? The bus was in possession of the champagne bottle (it wasn't found on a student) and the doors were presumably still open when they arrived; so it wasn't a question of "rights", it was unfounded suspicion.

This, this, and more this.

Although I don't know enough about 4th Amendment laws and opinions to start screaming about the Constitution like a Tea Partier with a bee in the car, but this situation reeks of a search without cause.  How can we accept guilty until proven innocent as a standard for anything?  Of course, as a parent of a teenager (who's school also pulls this shiat), I have been shouted down and categorized as one who encourages children to drink, drive and wrap their cars around tanker trucks when I have dared to object to these searches (it's gone as far as some idiot HOA-style fake blonde saying I'd have blood on my hands if the searches were ceased because of my objection).  Funny enough, we have the tightest no underage drinking policy at our house of any house in the neighborhood.  HOW CAN THEY NOT SEE THESS SEARCHES AS A CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUE?
 
2014-05-06 07:17:41 PM
This gets the students used to the drug tests they will have to take when they get jobs,  that nice.

The school is just preparing them for the future.

Good schools do that.
 
2014-05-06 07:19:29 PM
Never understood the whole prom thing. Our high school did not have proms. Do not feel like I missed anything.
