    If that 15 year old had been injured, his parents probably would have sued the owner of the home.

    What do they mean by “charges could be lodged against the homeowner and whoever furnished the alcohol” I hope if they will find out and charge accordingly.

    Shouldn’t the last sentence read “whomever” instead? Here’s winking at those who’ve busted me on my bad grammar on these forums ;)

      and again it happens – “whoever” is correct as used – it’s the subject in its clause

      Busted again.

      Just remember, for us grammar Nazis, a cat has its claws at the end of its paws, while  a comma has its pause at the end of its clause.

      I know, I know, I should now be barred from this forum, forever.

    I was there! They caught 5 of us inside the house. Wouldn’t call it much of a party. I think my favorite part was when I didn’t “sit the f*** down” after they entered the house illegally, so all 3 cops threw me to the floor and one kneed me in the back. It was a fun night..

      Intoxicated juveniles don’t have any rights since they are automatically breaking the law and as far as the police knew, you were all trespassing.  The next time a cop tells you to do anything you’d be well advised to do it.  They make commands for their safety, others safety, and especially for yours.

        SS much?

        • Anonymous

          When you have kids and they are at a party and a kid gets hurt because somebody decided to not do what an officer told them to do… then get back to me.  Unless you served in Europe and saw what the SS did to people, then I suggest you save your offensive and  out-of-line comparison for people that deserve it.

        All true.  When I was a kid, we all knew when what we were doing was illegal, and we also knew that if you did not get a chance to bolt for the door and hopefully get away you then had to man up for what you were doing and take the consequences and that being the smart guy to the cops would not get you anywhere.  Civil disobedience and resistance to authority is fine, but not in a situation like this.   Did they add resistance to arrest to your charges?  The judge might have done the old “kids being kids” thing and have been easy on you, but maybe not now.

        “Intoxicated juveniles don’t have any rights…”  I’m about 95% sure that you just made this up.  If not, then whichever law school you went to did a pretty terrible job.  Oh, you didn’t go to law school?  Then how about before you start talking about rights and things cops tell you to do, you learn what you’re talking about.  There was no complaint of tresspassing therefore the police could not assume that anyone was tresspassing until they ascertained ownership of the house.  And a police officer can certainly not beat down a drunken teenager because “they have no rights”.  This isn’t the USSR and the Bangor PD is definitely not the KGB.

          Did you go to Law School ??  How about the police academy?  How would you know if there was a complaint about trespassing?  Where you there when call call was made to the cops?  Do you know what was said to them?  If the cops get to the house and see a bunch of under aged people drinking, should they just walk away?  I’m sure that you are well qualified to comment.   I’m also sure that ”
          ohhhhhplease” is telling whole truth and nothing but the truth.  ‘Cause under aged people who are caught drinking never lie, exaggerate or leave relavant facts out.  And I’m sure the Bangor cops had nothing better to do on New Year’s Eve than to go harass and bully some inocent teenagers.

        Cops do anything they like. They think they are above the law. They all have big heads.

          With all of the intoxicated individuals on bath salts around Bangor
          lately, and with many of them trespassing and doing lots of crazy
          non-compliant things (hanging off bridges), do you really think the cops
          were out of line for telling a kid to shut up and sit down?  They
          didn’t know what drugs or substances had been used there.  If that kid
          had decided to try and run off and had collided with another officer
          trying to subdue an unruly drunk and a scuffle ensued involving an armed
          officer and somebody was hurt would you still be spewing your “rage
          against the machine” nonsensical crap?  Grow up and get over the idea
          that you are somehow fighting-the-power, and that cops are somehow bad
          or not to be trusted.

      My question is……. did you learn anything? If so, good. If not, get use to being thrown to the floor, kid.

      Thirty-three years ago, the cops used to break up our parties by taking our beer and telling us to sit still until we sobered up and then go home.  We thought we were ‘high class’ because we could afford Michelob.  Twenty years ago, I used to break up beer parties by taking their beer and telling them to sit still until they sobered up and then go home.  We had a good laugh in the parking lot after end-of-shift…the kids could afford Heineken!  Of course these parties were out in the woods, we were never bothered in our homes, and we never bothered anyone in their homes unless there was a call for a burglary or other serious crime in progress.  Sad how times have changed…:-(

    I wonder if the police found out where the 15 yrs. old attends school. His school should probably be receiving a call in case he was involved in extra curricular activities.

      Don’t expect Bangor High to do anything. They don’t have a drug and alcohol problem there dontcha know.

    Oh, and the teens parents? Did they know where their kids were?

      I take it you were never a teenager?

      I wonder if a  percentage of parents who are out drinking hard on New years every year have been training their kids without knowing it. When Mom and Dad are at home waiting for you in a sober condition you tend to get home at a decent hour not drunk.

    Sam Nisbett?  Haha, drugs & alcohol must work awesome for him with his metabolism since he is fresh out of being a track star at Bangor.  Odds are high that the other kids there were on the Bangor indoor track team.

        I think Monk was referring to EVERYONE…ie 12-21-12 being the end of the Mayan calendar or as some believe the end of life as we know it.

    About time Bangor PD cracks down on underage drinking…..didn’t get any help from them a few years ago when we provided them with addresses that were known for kids drinking.  Have to say they have been useless to my family this past year when my husband suffered a brain injury and the person responsible was never arrested.

    I wonder if any of them were at the party in Lincoln earlier this winter that resulted in several suspensions in Bangor.
