More Underage Drinkers Make The News.

1beer.jpgI’m not really convinced that minors are actually drinking more as I am convinced it’s being reported in the news more frequently. 

From the Star Tribune: 76 cited for underage drinking at St. Paul party
 “Eight to 10 officers converged on the bash about 12:15 a.m. as part of the police department’s ZAP (Zero Adult Providers) program, police spokesman Peter Panos said.

Unlike the busts often carried out by the multiagency patrols near the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Saturday’s crackdown was not a spontaneous event, but a result of advance tips and planning.”  *emphasis mine.

I have a few concerns and questions on this topic. 

1) They knew about the party in advance and didn’t bust it until after midnight?

 This reeks to me of a publicity stunt and, if true, it seems reckless. It’s possible the party had just started, but that wasn’t mentioned.

2) Does anyone really think that minors are partying more today than in years past?
