I can see alot of differnet perspectives on this. First, 5 people under 30, and 1 beer, means the police can look at I.D.'s Where are the police
going to look at the ID on the porch? no most of the time they are going to come inside the house. This means they are allowed to search the house. If
my 12 yr sneaked a sip of wine, then he can now arrest me, and my 12 yr old for, and fine me.
The law is there for unreasonable search and seizure. This new law, while I can understand why it could help the police in massive parties, has the
implications to break the 4th quite easily. You're saying that if the 4th is broken I can go to court and sue. I am saying, I shouldn't have to go
to court and sue, because the law violates the 4th, or has the ability to and therefore shouldn't have been passed, or implemented.
The police have enough laws on there books to use in policing the citizenry, they don't need more.
As far as my neighbors calling, or for that matter me calling the police, well, I live in a town with 2 police officers. I am very good friends with
one, and his wife watches my kids. If some idiot down the road was throughing a party, and keeping me up(which has happened on several occasions) I go
down, have a beer, and explain, hey, its 3:00 am, I got to work tomarrow, and you just woke up my kids. Most people will turn down the music and take
it inside. If not, thats when I get aggressive, and take the power cord off of it, or "accidently break" the sterio. Thats only happened once (1
power cord) and 1 smashing the damn sterio, the power cord, they became more obliging afterword. The sterio, well, what can I say, its the 3rd time I
went down there, and they kept turning it back up. Life sucks, but are you really going to call the cops at 3 am for a guy that smashed your cd
player, with 50 there all drinking, and possible drugs? You know what, they didn't and next time they through a party, they turned the music down at
10pm, and I didn't here it at all after 1am.
Moral of the story, if your rights are being violated, it is your responsiblity NOT the police, to do something FIRST. If it doesn't happen after
that, then bring the police in. Most partiers can understand and actually turn the music down, there not there to be a-holes, they're there the have
Just my 2 cents,
