Last week I had to pick up my young teenaged daughter from a party on Pineville Road.There was like 20 underaged kids there and most of them were drinking including mine. The people that own the house were giving them beer and drinking with them! The police department was there and giving the kids breatilyzers but they were ordered to not do anythign about it from their boss, because the homeonwner called the captain or whoever it is they got the order from! My daughter said the homeowner told them "dont worry i know people tat the police department no ones in trouble" when the cops arrived!

DISGUSTING! How are they going to feel when one of those kids die! Will political allies and friends still pull the same weight??

I grew up in Long Beach and with the history this city has for teenage deaths, it shouldnt be over looked by the police. Call the Chief, the parents should have charged for contributing to the delinquency of a minor

When you called the Police Chief and the Mayor and told them, what did they say?

You said they were giving breathalyzers, so I'm assuming that no one drove away drunk. Would you rather have a police-supervised party like that one, or an unsupervised one with drunk driving? Personally, I'd rather have the supervised one.

Also personally, while I'm not a big drinker, I believe that if you're old enough to vote and old enough to die in the military you should be old enough to drink responsibly.

no big deal if we're talking 19 or 20 but if they were like 12 or 13 I think they ought not be doing that, especially if they were going to be driving afterwards.

I doubt if they would be driving if they were twelve or thirteen.

I'm glad somebody said it, because I chuckled after I read that comment.
And unfortunately, some towns have the "good ole' boy" system and that's how things work. There's corruption in more cities and towns across the country than you could shake a finger at.

Die? Exactly how much are the teens in Long Beach drinking? Where i live, underage drinking has been going on since the beginning of times, some of the kids go quite heavy on it, but it's been very rare to have anyone actually die from, for example, alcohol poisoning.
