CPD is so self-serving. 90% of UVA students under age carry fake id cards. Drugs and roofies are sold on grounds. What has law enforcement actually ever done to try and stop anything illegal that goes on involving uva? They just follow orders handed down to them from their paymaster UVA. No UVA drug busts. No regular bar raids. Why because fake ids look so real?

Roberts, when it comes to anything UVA all of you in law enforcement choose to turn a blind eye. It's a choice. I guess that's the price we have to pay for you to keep your jobs and I understand that but please don't insult our intelligence.

Not to mention all the crime that does take place the public never hears about. All the crimes that take place that are never given a case number, no case number, no crime. Ain't that right Longo?

I'm not surprised. But I do know that there are multiple conflicts between UVA, the CA and the police dept. For example what does it look like that Longo's wife and daughter work for UVA Health Systems? How can he be independent from UVA?

Several years ago I was a designated driver for some friends who went bar hopping in Charlottesville. At a couple of bars near campus there were several customers obviously way beyond public intoxication. I saw an officer walk thru and walk out. I was shocked they served such obviously intoxicated people and the police looked the other way.

No. There's so much speculation and lies in this post I don't know where to begin. No where near 90% of underage students are carrying fake IDs. Not even 50% do, I'd put it at about 20% of underage students. They're expensive and risky, and most people don't see the need for them, especially when EVERYONE knows someone over 21 willing to buy alc for them. Marijuana is sold, just like any other college campus, and I'm sure you can find other harder drugs, but I've NEVER seen or heard of roofies being sold. UVAPD have jurisdiction over Grounds, most of the Corner, and most of Rugby/Frats, Cville police rarely intervene in those areas unless requested. And UVAPD do not treat drugs likely, I have personally witnessed several drug busts both on and near-grounds by UVAPD. UVAPD/CPD can not really "raid" bars. They have no probable cause to ask someone holding an alcoholic beverage in a bar for an ID just for looking underage. VA ABC however does "raid" bars time to time and have increased their activities this year. The bar bouncers are very strict with who they let in because they know if they're caught by ABC with a violation they will be paying thousands in fines.

UVAPD/CPD simply do not have the resources to handle the volume of underage drinking and public intoxication incidents. It would be foolish to even attempt to do it. It would tie up every working officer in the city on a typically Thurs, Fri, and Sat night. That's why they tend to let the small stuff slide and only really go after bigger fish, such as hard drugs, DUIs, and violent crimes.

This is America where we have free speech so maybe you need to move where you can tell people to shut up. Judging by your posts it would not be a great loss for us or a great gain for them. But I just say that because you really have a hard time getting your message across. Is it ebonics or idiots you speak. I do believe ther are laws that prohibit the sale of alcohol to intoxicated people. I don't care if you drink but if you can't stand up maybe you have had enough. Hey maybe when you sober up you can type a post that makes sense. But if you are in your own home drink til you crawl brother that's what feedom is all about

If they break out the swat team for young people making fake id's, the taxpayers should watch out if a serious crime takes place in their neighborhood! I see a lot of inocent people being hit by automatic weapon fire! Cops gone wild will be the next big thing! The cops are trying to get their frightened taxpayers used to them hitting a scene like a seal team because they are getting ready for marshal law in this country! Democrats and rinos support them on this deal. Just wait until they beat a few potheads to death with nightsticks and the butts of their automatic weapons! Anyone that does not agree with this, remember Waco!

I wish I would have known of this service .

I lost my licencse at the beach , I had to run all over Augusta County getting records , even went to the fishersville FEMA camps to get school records.

I thought I was gonna have to saw my leg off and give them that also to get another ID.

The fake ones look as good as the other FAKE one I had to get .

I was smiling and they instructed me I was not allowed to smile for my new picture.

damn liberals don't even allow me to smile :(.

Just three or four weeks in LA an old lady and her daughter were out delivering news papers early in the morning. The ego cops were out looking for a bad guy. The cops mistook the two females for the bad guy and opened up, shot the old lady in the BACK two, thats right, two times. The cops had unloaded over a hundred rounds at them in a residential neighborhood, rounds going into houses. This is the kind of mentality the cops have acquired and we're supposed to just say OK. No accountability to anyone, just pay the victim off and go on terrorising other citizens with militaristic behavior. WE now live in a police state, just hasn't been advertisied yet. Waco, Ruby Ridge, Florida when the young kid was taken from it father.

It's City Council that want the police to turn a blind eye! They want that money spent on local businesses regardless of what recklessness the students create.

Typical. First of all, you're an idiot for loosing your drivers license at the beach, thanks for sharing that. Secondly, the "no smile" rule is one of many joys of the Patriot Act, rammed through by your boy Bush.

I take no affiliation with no political party and the last national election was my last to be voting .

The GOP sent my absentee ballet back and rejected my vote because the richmond po tore the corner in their sorting machines. I found out a month after the election of the new chochocalte jesus. I have my rejection letter framed in the man cave .

I live , spend and support as local as i can keep it until further notice.

I'm afaid 2012 was my last venture at the voting booth. Congress is so corrupt its a joke. Even the election coming up for gubnor is a joke. Vote for who? Give me someone with some integrity and maybe I'll go back. For now? I'm done. Politicians and their lobbyists have turned this country into the last days od Rome. If Godzillary runs for prez that will be thee biggest joke of all. Proof that who ever sits in the white house is a dupe. The right will have to come up Jesus himself to win the white house.
