Prohibition didn't work in the 30's. This won't work either. Insanity and stupidity. Chancellor Sorenson needs to think bigger.

You would have better luck tryin to bring peace to the middle east than trying to stop college students from drinking and partying.

Sounds more like the cops need to relax and remember when they were in school.

I imagine the ultimate outcome will be underage students traveling off-campus to get drunk now. They might drink even more, as, after all, if you're gonna go to that effort to get to the party, you might as well really tie one on and get sloshed! Hopefully, they will have the insight to take a cab or have a sober driver.

Nothing about this seems to paint a picture of greater safety. Rather, it seems lucrative to crack down and hand out "citations." If its been painted as "safety" these days, chances are, its a tax.

Maybe alcohol should not be PROMOTED as much as it is in our society? Some ads look like alcohol cartoons these days, and then they're shocked the kids get involved in it at an early age. Please!
