More common than parents think

Jackson, Tennessee’s Jackson Sun recently published an extensive story on underage drinking in West Tennessee. According to the article, police have been frequently “busting” clandestine backyard parties where parents–or even residents–are not present. Law enforcement officials who commented for the story argue that underage drinking is even more common than parents realize.

    Tennessee is is rife with age discriminatory laws and rules. Sgt. Chris Long, featured in the article, is an ageist for calling college students “kids”. The Community Anti-Drug Coalition, featured in the article, is an ageist organization for not trusting employees to not sell to people who are under 21. I support a drinking age of 18 with restrictions. Jimmy Elbridge is an ageist legislator for supporting a law that prohibits people who are 18-20 from being inside an alcohol store. That is a bad law which should be repealed. The 17-year old boy in the article is correct by saying that drinking alcohol by those under 21 won’t be stopped with law enforcement. This can be decreased by alot. The approach to alcohol and people who are 18-20 is backwards in this country. There are millions of people people in the U.S. are unwilling to listen to what Choose Responsibility and similar minded people say. I have contempt for those people because debate requires participation.
