MAC'N MARTY'S AND THE GOV'S SON.......WHO'S AT FAULT?

It takes a village, seems to me Mac'n Marty's failed their part?

I'm all for raising the drinking age. Last night's arrest of the gov's son could have been much worse. The police could have been there with the two minors and the gov's son because the alleged drunk under age driver was dead, or had killed someone because the three were involved in a DUI with injury crash. Thank God it was just a cop pulling over a suspicious vehicle and the kids were returned to their parents.
Dr. Shieh and the group of people that want to raise the drinking age to 21 have three more reasons to raise the drinking age. Seems to me that if these kids were at Mac'n'Marty's and were drinking, that the establishment was just as at fault as the person the police arrested. If the governor's son was arrested because he was an adult and had jurisdiction over a minor who was allegedly drunk and shouldn't have been driving, then the bar shouldn't have been selling that child any alcohol. I say that the owners of that bar should have been arrested as well. We can't continue to place the blame just on the children. Maybe if we arrest the sellers as well as the 'users' we'll get more cooperation in the future. If we arrest the families that allow the children to drink during fiesta celebrations, they'll stop allowing their children to drink beer, or at least pay more attention to who they're supposedly getting the beer for.
I know I'm going to get laughed at and you can start laughing now but what happened to the curfew laws? Were they changed? Do they exist? What happened to our little girls coming home at midnight? My daughter had to come home at midnight until the time she went away to college and even when she came home the few short time after, she still came home at midnight.
O tempore, o more..............
