Not to mention the entire Duke Lacrosse team who, although innocent of the rape allegations, were throwing a big drunken party at their frat house.

Acting suspicious, yea right, sounds like another case of profiling. I guess those cops have nothing better to do with their time. Everyone who posted comments against these student must live in glass houses that are well maintained and shatterproof. "He without sin cast the first stone". Just about all of us have had acohol in a vehecle at one point or another, but just did not get caught. Think again bashers.
Alcohol in a car, also a suspended license! Dumb, Dumb Squared.

Anyone else care to advocate for Dougie and his pal? The worst is yet to come, I'm guessing.

No, they are thugs,(and it has no racial implications!) It is that simple. The team and the University will be better (short term and long term) without them. Alcohol and narcotics, underaged? My hope is that Coach Calhoon will rebuild an equally talented team with players that respect themselves, and have the ability to follow simple rules and guidlines.
