Blame the parents of the perps. Period. End of story. Prosecute the parents for this crap and it will stop happening
I'm so very very tired of arguing this point with other people. But how else will justice be served?
Prosecute the parents who allowed these minors to drink too.
End of story and if you don't agree, kindly piss off.
You can prosecute the parents with a fine of some sort for their kids drinking underage. But I honestly think our laws are too leniant on minors. You make a dumb decision as a "minor", you should face the same consequences as if you were an adult.
Is murder any lesser of a crime because the person who murdered was under the age of 18? If you do the crime, you face the same punishment regardless of your age. That is the way it should be anyways.
