Ages 18-20?! Oh, my goodness, that's soooo underage.

I support this movement by university presidents to lower the drinking age. If you're legally an adult at 18, if you can buy tobacco, and firearms and get sent into battle... then geez, if no one is getting hurt, then what's the harm? I don't see anything about anyone driving or dying.

The girls were probably wearing make up too!
And DANCING! I bet there was dancing too!
Oh, and the language!

... IF no one gets hurt. This time. Underage drinking is dangerous. I'm sure you'd feel the same way if you had a loved one killed by a drunk driver. How do you know who left the party after drinking, before the police arived?

Good golly these kids were just having some fun!!
What else is there for kids to do in area? Nothing!
As long as they are responsible I would rather them be in a group than out on the roads. You no if they made the legal drinking age 18 it probly wouldn't be as fun anymore cause then they can legally do it.

Yeah, I don't understand people who are so against lowering the drinking age by explaining that those kids might then drive drunk. Drunk driving would still be illegal. Making it illegal for young adults to drink only teaches them to have no respect for the law because most realize they can drink anyway with no major problems, and some then feel the same about drunk driving laws.

How is "underage" (read, 18-20 year olds) drinking any LESS dangerous than "adult" drinking???

People drink, people go out, people have fun and people do stupid things. But we should be focused more on preventing the drunk driving than preventing underage drinking, because an 18-20 year old in my opinion isn't any more likely to drink and drive than someone over 21.

You gotta be kidding or at least 65 years old with no rememberance of what it was like when you were 18-20 years old. I lived beside a college fraternity and when they had parties they didn't care what they did to my property or where they went to the bathroom or where they "laid" their girlfriends.

It sure does and it's very unfortunate. However, the situation at hand has to do with underage drinking, and many people on this forum are making light of the situation. The people that say "oh they're just a bunch of kids having fun" would probably change their opinions if one of these fun-loving kids hurt one of their family members. By the way, it's not okay when it happens at bars either.

Oh I know its not okay. That's why I always take a DD with me.

I'm just saying it happens there to. Age doesn't always have something to do with the situation.

Gee, you sound like the grumpiest old man on Earth!

Yes, I am making "light" of this situation, because no one was hurt and nothing got out of hand. So why speculate about would "could" happen? Again, what makes an 18-20 year old any less likely to do something stupid while drinking than someone over 21?

The answer is NOTHING. What an 18-20 year old can do is get drafted and go to war, fight for your freedom. Oh, but when they drink, they're all just dumb teenagers just waiting to trash that old guy's lawn.

It's so sad the perception adults have of young people... you're not going to be believe this, but they're not ALL worthless.

Praise the Lord. Atleast they were using a legal socially acceptable drug. This is the same drug promoted and used by most of society. Thank God they were not smoking that evil weed. Drink up!

Laws are laws. They shouldn't have been doing it.

Underage drinking leads to more than just drunk driving. It leads to drunk, irresponsible sex, and BABIES.

This sort of thing is exactly why the white trash population of Waynesboro is out of control. They are getting drunk and breeding like animals.

Sad but true.
