News courses through a community in a much different way in the era of social media. To my knowledge, no local media reports exist concerning these recent events, but within the past four to six weeks at least two underage drinking parties have been raided in my hometown. Although, I wish no ill for any teenager court appearances, etc. Underage consumption is a danger to teens and it's a drain on the United States economy. Most parents I know view underage drinking, especially when it involves high school students, as dangerous and inappropriate, but a handful of parents do exasperate the local problem by either supplying alcohol, ignoring the behavior, or naively believing their child does not drink. According to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, 99 percent fall into that last category.
