They don't need Madd for it, they just show up and put their nose in it. I am glad they do these things! As for smokey bones, YUCK! That place will be out of business soon. Their food is gross now and grease filled since they changed their menu!

Do your job, and ask for ID. It's not that complicated. If they don't look like 30, ask for it. If they do look over 30 ask for it, the customers will be flattered ! It's all in how you ask.
It's not cheap or fun to be stalked by the Heat, and they know the rules. Liquor stores make a fortune in markup. And have a near monopoly. Enough heart ache goes out the door, kids can wait a little longer. Let their brains grow up a little first.
Take some responsibility for the easy money youre making, peddling legal taxed drugs.

Madd is nuts these arrests are practically entrapment and at a time when we have so many more important crimes to stop. Way to go officers for putting hard working folks in jail who otherwise are law abiding citizens just trying to earn a living.

Don't the cops have better things to do with time, like maybe fighting real crime.

Ahh and we hear from another law abiding citizen! So teens getting drunk then driving and killing themselves or other isn't important police work? And people deliberatley selling to them isn't a crime worth policing?? Hard working folks BREAKING THE LAW! get it???

I have a stupid question... I know it's illegal to sell alcohol to minors, but isn't it also illegal for minors to attempt to purchase alcohol? Seems silly to me for the police to intentionally break one law to enforce another one. Just something to think about.

Nope, can't do that, to much like real work. Much easier to bust store clerks and waiters that at least have a job and are not sitting on their lazy butts getting a welfare check.

Let me guess, those decoys are nearly 21-year old girls, professionally tarted up by MADD Moms who have pushed their daughters into the Beauty Contest soirees. Then female Police officers coach them EXACTLY what to say, and more importantly, what NOT to say to entice their victims. I would be more impressed with random, undercover surveillance.

No, a minor directly supervised by law enforcement isn't something thinking people should consider, any more so than a nineteen year old law enforcement officer making undercover illegal drug buys would be.

Law is law. Stop breaking it and you have nothing to worry about it. Stop whining and do the right thing. And stop blaming the people whose job it is to protect you! Would you like a drunk 16 yr old ramming into your car and causing you harm because some idiot wants to make a buck?

Didn't think so.

And for those of you who gripe about this not being a "real crime" and why don't they go after "real" criminals.... This IS real crime. This was a special task force set up to target this issue. ALL officers and deputies regularly scheduled have NOTHING to do with this event. They are out responding to calls that come in during the shift.

Then after the decoys were finished they went to a party with their friend's and got high and drunk, basking in the irony of their afternoon.

thanks doug for stepping up to the plate!MADD and fhp and other police departments dont have enough revunue to keep them on the payroll,so they target the easiest prey,clerks working for the minium wage!every year MADD treats the fhp to a steak dinner for the most arrests,MADDdont have any compassion for all the deaths of underage drinking on college campus across america,duh because they were not under the wheel when they passed away! because of alcohol and/or drugs being deemed illegal,everyone is a suspect in the so-called war on its citizens,you are old enough to vote and die for your country,but not able to have a beer,after killing innocent women and children! viet-nam{de jevau}as long as alchol drugs,and tobacco products are forbidden,our youth is gong to be determined to try them!heil hitler is coming full circle,and closing you dont need a IDto purcahse cocaine ,estacy,or heroin! lets make it easier to give the police broader powers,your house could be the next to search! sleep tight america,support your local swat team,i am sorry your police force!

That would take balls and might be dangerous. Suburban cops prefer to harass teenagers and mild-mannered store clerks.

As for MADD, those nanny-state hags should go away. Their act is getting old.
