Who were the two girls that got in the fight at the Vance home last weekend? Do they always allow alcohol at their home where juveniles are present or was this party held without the parents knowledge? Glad no one was hurt or killed in a drunk driving accident!

Where is the Vance home? Who are these people? My friends child got into some trouble this past weekend. Not sure if this is where the trouble started or not but the name was mentioned.

Might look in the phone book for a address? I just wonder if the parents were home as there was much underage drinking if what I was told is true. Looks like adults that put up with drinking like this at their homes need to think about what would happen if a kid left and got killed in a wreck? Hope the kids involved do not end up in a rehab or AA meetings for something stupid. I heard about it and also am not happy, I may be contacting the County Attorney today to see if anything can be done.

Parties happen every weekend. The fight was silly and nobody was even really touched. If it was a real fight you might have something to talk about. Parents are blind

Anyone getting together again should meet me at my place! All underagers allowed! We have plenty of marijuana cigarettes and drug sticks! It's okay there won't be any cops so bring all your illicit drugs!

Here's the thing. These partys happen EVERY weekend. I know this because I used to attend every one of them. Teens aren't as dumb as people think. The partiers of today know not to drink and drive. Kids are gonna party and have fun NO MATTER WHAT. But they are being safe when it comes to driving. So before you contact the "county attorney" stop and think for a second. Are you going to hunt down every party from here on out and condem them? Are you going to track down the venues of the previous parties? That would be the only fair thing to do but I seriously doubt you have time for that. Underage drinking happens and you can not stop it no matter how hard you try. So before you contact law enforcement think about how many lives you would ruin over something you have absolutely NO control over and/or have ANY IDEA what truly happens.

Ever thought about how many lives one might save? Just for a thought?

Bullsh1t. Ruin their lives? The punishment for being caught at an underage party with drugs/alcohol/whatever else is not the death penalty. It's usually a nice little slap on the wrist, a fine, a deferral - extremely RARELY do you see jail time. Countenance that against the irresponsibility of knowing it's happening, and allowing it to continue, risking the lives of everyone in the process.

Kids are smart when it comes to drinking and driving? Are you serious? The percentage of adults responsible about drinking and driving, those who have begun to understand that it very well could happen to them (be that be arrested, die, whatever) isn't very high. It's even higher among underage folks.

40% of alcohol related fatal car crashes involve teens. 60% of teen deaths in car accidents are alcohol related.

And it's not just that. Weed is one thing, but kids die everyday from O/D's or drinking themselves to the point of blood poisoning. Because they don't understand that it could happen to them. Not all of them, sure - but it's a real danger.

So you'd have us just sit off to the side because, oh no, little Johnny might have to go on probation for a year? His mommy and daddy won't pay for his college? F|_|ck that, little Johnny's alive - be happy about it.

Those statistics may be true. Trust me I've had my fair share of alcohol lectures. But how many of those surveys were taken in Christian county? I'd say not many.

How are irresponsible kids any different just because they reside in Christian County? Heck if anything I'd say that would make it worse.

When I mentioned Christian county I was implying that our schools are doing a pretty good job with informing their students about the dangers drinking and driving. I'd like to see the statistics for the Christian county area. I'd be willing to bet they are drastically different than that of the national average.

I will now longer voice my opinion on the matter because I'm most likely the only young person in the forum. My views are obviously completely different than that of you older folks. Keep in mind that I know every single person that attended this most recent party and I'm almost positive the rest of you don't...

Lol. You talk like current high school kids were the only ones to ever experience high school. I graduated fairly recently, and I know what high school parties look like in this town. Maybe not yours, maybe not ever yours, but that's irrelevant. Because that is not the norm. We can't be okay with underage drinking just because the group of folks you're with have better heads on their shoulders than average teenagers, even if that's true.

I don't know those people, but statistically speaking, adults who ply children with alcohol usually end up being pedophiles.

You are dumber than a box of rocks if you think you can stop underage parties and drinking. I'm not condoning it but be realistic. Teenagers are persistent and stubborn. If they want to party thru will find a way to do it and the more you fight them on it the more appealing it is and the more out of control it can get. Do you really want to push kids to go out where you have no idea where they are? Concentrate on setting an example for your own children and making sure they don't attend these parties and if they do then educate them on why they shouldn't drink yet. Concentrate on raising your own children because that's all you have any remote symbance of control over. Being a holier than thou self righteous hypocrite will only make things worse and it makes you lose credibility in a young persons eyes.
