Something near and dear.My uncle and auntie were busted last summer for a graduation party for my lil cousin. They went to bed at 10 pm, and the party contunued til about 4 am. After they went to bed, more kids showed up and the booze started flowing. My uncle Al had just lost his job, and was supposed to pay 17,000 to the courts for the minors that were drinking on his property. A week later, he had a heart attack. They re-mortgaged the house, and sold alot of items to pay that bill to the courts. At 1,000 a head per minor, for kids that aren't yours, or even that he had no idea what was going on out in the feild. Seems steep and outrageous to me. The price for the MIP is about 95 bucks for the kids. I think that should be alot more.
For this incident, they need to go after the kids that were there. The ones that got caught should rat out their "friends". And the parents should only have to pay about 5,000 of it, while the other costs should be on the punk that threw the party, and his drinking buddies.
The parents weren't there to control it. The punk threw a huge party that got out of hand. he wasn't necessarilly thinking of the what-ifs, and now he should pay up for what he did. Maybe he'll reconsider throwing a party when his parents ae out.
