Then they wonder why kids behave the way they do these days, IT ALL COMES DOWN TO PARENTING!!! I wish I could smack some of these parents who let their kids drink in public, it's trashy. Welcome to Floriduhhh!!!! Moderator cut: off topic

I'm also amused how when people KNOW they are doing WRONG, and get caught, and then retaliate like they're in the right. It's disgusting. There's no sense of self responsibilty anymore, live and learn has obviously never been taught to these neanderthals.
So true! As a Fla. Native I've seen it all, there does seem to be an element down here that's just disgusting. One of the worst problems in society today is a complete contempt for authority coupled with a complete lack of any personal responsibility-it's always someone elses fault. Moderator cut: off topic

It's probably store policy, as they have the right to refuse service to anyone. ATF is crazy strict on underage drinking, and can kill a store's liquor permit.

I remember a girl that used to work for me that used to work at circle k and she was charged with a crime for not detecting a fake ID of an undercover agent.

I thought is was state law, not store policy but I could be wrong. And the reasoning was that I could be purchasing the alcohol to GIVE to the underaged minor. So therefore, the store owner , not knowing my intention, and me having minors present, would not sell me liquor.

There was a theme park in NJ that the drunkards used to get out of hand all the time to the point that we stopped going. It really hurt their sales big time. It took them a few years to clean up their image once they cleaned up the drunks. (Six Flags Great Adventure)
I commend Universal for keeping the lid on it!
