It's a different world out there for the kids with online sources. I used to love going to big keggers, they'd get raided too back in the 70's.

This is just the beginning of the myspace facebook generation getting caught. Some of these kids will be lucky to get jobs in the future after airing all of their dirty laundry for the world to read! They don't understand that headhunters, employment agencies and other background checking firms are all using software to grab each and every profile they can to database. If these dumb kids only knew that the delete button doesn't mean it's gone forever! the good news out of all of this is that I will always have a job.

Of course, we didn't advertise them where every cop in the world could find out about them. Were we smarter back then, or did we just not have the resources of modern-day stupidity?

We probably weren't smart -- just didn't have the recouses. I recall doing some pretty stupid things back then.

Here's the thing they were smart enough to know they didn't have to let the cops in the house. Probably not smart enough to know they could get a search warrant. Same thing happened with my boss' kids except it was the parents that told them you don't have to let them in. A lot of these parents look they other way because they don't want to deal with it, are lazy or just want to be their kids "friend" and be cool. In the long run this will hurt these kids because they just think I can do what ever I want and get away with it.

Pretty stupid to spam a completely unrelated group, particularly one targeting teens. Quite a few parties I go to are listed on facebook, and minors do attend some. However the alcohol situation is never listed, you have to call for that sort of info. Think of it as a like a calendar at work, you get a reminder of what is coming up, and you can also view what sort of things your friends are up to the next couple of days (ala open calendar for to those of us in an office setting).

Did the police really have nothing better to do than canvass the city looking for signs of a party? I could understand if they were receiving complaints from neighbors, but it doesn't sound like that happened from the article. This is a waste of police resources. I can't believe they would go to the trouble of waking a judge up in the middle of the night to have him/her sign a warrant to bust an underage drinking party. This is stupid on so many levels.

Do you think think the parents of these kids can take a parenting class with Joshua Weber's mom and dad?

Naa..it's already too late.

I am appalled every day of the audacity of teenagers and that sense of entitlement they have grown up with.

I think shutting down the internet would be a good start to eliminate the scourge of underage alcohol consumption.

Waking up that judge in the middle of the night probably saved those kids lives.

Normally, you'd be correct. But since Algore invented the internet, you're wrong.

Geez, are these kids morons.

Although I think kids will be kids. I applaud the police, they were doing their job. When the folks are out, Kids will be kids, cops will be cops!

Drinking and driving is serious -- don't want to see anyone get behind the wheel, but kegger parties where fun...I miss those days!!

I would bet you would be singing a different song if some of these kids decided to get in a car and drive home--only to have an accident and injure/kill themselves or others. I applaud the police in being proactive in this matter. I only hope the adults found there get cited for 'providing alcohol for underage consumption.'
