All people buying alcohol for minors should be criminally charged! This is a BAD RIGHT OF PASSAGE so STOP IT!

I'm only surprised that more young people don't die of alcohol poisoning. Make no mistake, drinking is the #1 activity of college students and that fact should come as no shock to anyone. Don't zero in on the fraternity - collegiates will drink anywhere at any time, and getting drunk is their purpose for drinking. Have you ever been to Five Points on a Thursday - Saturday night? How about the Vista? It's Yahoo City around here all the time so don't act so da*m surprised when someone drinks himself into oblivion. Greek life has nothing to do with it - it's what ALL college students do!(Oh, yeah, I know someone's going to write in and say THEY never took a drink in their life. Well, good for you but you weren't the norm.)

Amen! All we are going to hear in these forums is how they are college students and everbody knows they are going to party and drink, as if that is reason enough to just walk away from it and let it contiune year after year. Stupid.

I didn't have my first taste of alcohol 'til I was almost 22 years-of-age so it's never been any kind of "factor" in my life.

Let's just let all of these kids drink alcohol as minors since it's "the thing" to do so that when they're 30 and are drunks, have lost lots of jobs not to mention a spouse, respect of their children and community, etc. we can just say "we all go through it...it was just more on him than normal"!

They need to file charges in all these cases. This one is getting extra publicity because he was some legistlator's grandson.

This is sad. However, where is the responsibility of the drinker?

Sound like "Prosecutor Chrissy Adams" is trying to make a name for herself. Sprague drank it like a man and no one made him do it, I would bet he's been drinking for serveral years. If under age drinking in college is such a problem lets kick all kids charged with any alcohol related incidents out of school. But wait, that would mean the colleges would lose money and we can't have that can we.+

Sick of It:
She could have charged them with involuntary manslaughter if she was after publicity, but she didn't. Instead, she just charged them with the misdemeanors that they are probably guilty of. I think the charges show a lot of restraint and thoughtfulness on her part.

Being charged with a misdemeanor and that's al. a person died. This guy did not wreck his car or fall down a flight of stairs.....he DIED! There are some strange things going on up at Clemson, a coach died last year because of people drinking alcohol and no one was charged. Looks like the police do a good job of covering up some things.

This is an unfortunate incident. However, if he is over 18 years old then he is responsible for his own actions. I didn't know peer pressure was a crime.

His parents should have taught him about alcohol and responsible drinking.

I am sorry for the families for all of these boys.

Spud: Nobody had a gun to his head. Somebody else bought the alcohol, but he made the decision to drink it. If the defendants hadn't bought the liquor, he would have found another way to get it. Sad, but it's nobody's fault but his own.

Who will be prosecuted in connection with the beach house fire last year? If the students were underage and alcohol was a factor in their death who will be held responsible? The person who sold it? Was alcohol already in the house? Should the owners be prosecuted for allowing a setting where this could happen? I cant see the difference, can you?
