If it happens again? Looks like it has happened several times already. I say "3 strikes and you're out". They need to lose their beer license.

Businesses should not be in the business of policing customers. For example, a business should not be punished for selling alcohol to a minor who uses a fake ID. Even in my early 30's I still could have passed for 19 or 20, which took people by surprise.

Some businesses, in other states, have been fighting back by taking the minor to court and suing for damages and winning.

Take their license away!!! Same thing with cigarettes. Maybe these stores will get the point after they start losing income. We hear all this hype about minors smoking and drinking, but yet we do nothing to stop it. It's time to stop the tough talk and walk the walk.

They deserve their alcohol license gone… A lot of wrecks are caused by underage drinkers who can't handle their alcohol and wreck into someone else's property or another vehicle which usually has someone who cares about their own life and children…all because of a kid who want to get drunk and an idiot who wants to sell it to them….

I wonder is sales are so good that it's worth paying the fines. Maybe a little more incentive needs to be applied. I applaud the efforts of the DA in getting the message to the Owner.
