What the hell is going on? Do these companies know just what the punishment is for selling to a minor? For goodness sake, can someone please tell me because I have no idea!
On a serious note, what is wrong this these companies where they think this is acceptable? Obviously, from reading this story, one would be thinking, ” Oh the kids probably had fake Id’s and that is why they got the alcohol”. But nope, that’s not the case. These kids showed their real Id and still got the booze. So last night I was contemplating writing this story about a mother who purchased alcohol for her teen son for his 17th birthday! She purchase him an entire Keg and he and his friends got wasted for the party. Guess what? 3 of those children who drove home that night were killed in an accident. Whose responsible? The child knows that they are underage, the parents knew it and the restaurants know it as well, yet these kids still had full access to it.
Is 21 a responsible age for drinking in this country? Are our kids trying to tell us that they can handle the drink? They better not be, because in actuality, NO ONE can handle the drink. The beverage is designed to intoxicate you. It is designed to be a downer and to make you relax. Who out there knows a hyperactive drunk?
Read the story below about the mother who gave alcohol to the children for a party.
A western Pennsylvania woman is charged with serving a half-keg of beer to 16 minors at her son’s graduation party, before three of the teens were killed in an alcohol-related crash.
Westmoreland County District Attorney John Peck says he did not charge 59-year-old Susan Sanders-Watt, of Greensburg, with involuntary manslaughter because it couldn’t be proven that the beer the teen driver drank at the party caused the June 26 crash. That’s because Peck says 19-year-old Michael Simpson had been drinking at another location before the defendant’s party.
Simpson and two passengers, all graduates of Greensburg-Salem High School, were also killed. Simpson and one of the other passengers were legally drunk.
Sanders-Watt did not immediately return a call to her home Friday. She’s charged with corruption of minors, reckless endangerment and providing alcohol to minors.
Now doesn’t that make you feel just wonderful? Knowing that a mother had the audacity to do this to her guests. Imagine letting your child attend a party where alcohol was assumed to NOT BE PRESENT because the children and children. But low and behold, you find out that the parents did indeed provide alcohol and that your child died because of it. Now look closely at the bottom of that story and what charges do you see? Corruption of minors, reckless endangerment and providing alcohol to minors. Should the restaurants or businesses lose their license for reckless endangerment of minors?
