At first I was like, "What? Cops warning kids before an arrest and not using it as an opportunity to raid the rave SWAT style and beat the sh*t out of some local kids? What country does that happen in, cause it ain't the USA."

Then I realized this happened in Ireland.

*sigh*

Get off your face on drugs?  I think we heard this story before.
 
2014-07-07 12:36:31 PM  
yeah, Imagine how crappy your summer would be if we used idiotic drug laws to ruin your life?

Kids should have used MyFace.

That's the problem with social media. Sure, it can accurately transmit the details about when and where the rave is going to be, but if you make it public enough to draw a crowd, it's going to be seen by a cop. Of course, in this case it was seen by someone who actually believed in crime prevention, otherwise it just gets used to give directions to the jack booted thugs.

Normally I'd agree but uncontrolled outdoor parties without facilities turn fatal a lot more often than you would think.  I'm having a hard time faulting them for putting at stop to such an event.

"you can't party next to big scary holes in the ground because you might get a boo-boo. we aren't ruining your summer, we are just being your parents and telling you what you can and can't do for your summer"

Dear Police,

Please stop trying to ruin things for Darwin.

He's far enough behind on his work so as it is...

Kthxby

Part of their message to party goers was about how they would ruin their lives by arresting them for petty drug offenses if they had not stopped the party. That was what I was referencing, not actually stopping the party itself, which whatever, police do that and it makes sense.

Nice hyperbolic scenario, cops.

Has anybody in the past ever "gotten so off their face on drugs" (you just might be drunk when that sentence starts to make sense) that they fell into the quarry and gotten hurt, or was that seriously the best "what-if" scenario your little peabrains could come up with?

Considering that the average bar-hopper has a hard time keeping themselves from falling off the bar stool, it's not much of a stretch to imagine people partying near a cliff might stumble over the edge...

'Perhaps your summer would be better if we let this go ahead and you go so off your face on drink and drugs that somehow you thought it was a good idea to try and fly off the cliff edge into the quarry.'

1.  Nobody has ever thought they could fly off a cliff because of drugs.  Birds don't learn how to fly on a cliff, they start out on the ground.
2.  It is perfectly legal to get "off your face on drink", why not drugs?

'Seriously, WISE UP. I say it again if you don't like what we post on her to keep YOUR community safe I suggest you unlike us.'

Police can't prevent danger, they can only act when it is occurring.  Nobody asked you to do this, why do you expect a pat on the back for it?

The thought has occurred before, that there should be a service where one can rent a padded room and a nurse. The nurse should be immune to all but charges of the grossest negligence. Yes, that might encourage abuse, but it would help prevent the fallout from such hurting the uninvolved.

I agree, let's abolish all regulations. Not all drug regulations, ALL regulations. Darwin must be appeased.

I honestly can't tell if the interesting use of the English language is the fault of the article or the police. Or if it is the fault of the police, if the article writers even noticed that there was a problem.
