Social Media called the cops on rowdy party?

A rowdy teen party in the 100 block of W Rogers that got out of hand. Police didn't know about it until something was posted on Instagram and Facebook.  Come on, couldn't anyone be bothered to call the cops? I'd like to hear an explanation on that one.  There were almost 100 people at the party.  Doesn't make any sense.  The party itself puts RP in a bad light, the neighbors not calling the cops doesn't help.

Good point, but, sadly, some do not. I became aware, years after the incident, of a parent hosting a sleepover and supplying alcohol to the teens as long as they relinquished car keys. That kind of thinking and example is what can lead to this recent event. Peer presence, if not pressure, is a strong influence.

Also if it's their first time and a summary offense, they may be offered the opportunity to go through the Youth Aide Panel to wipe the offense from their juvenile record, in which case if should not affect their college applications. If it's a second offense or greater, then it's more than a one time mistake.
I would hope whoever supplied the alcohol has been identified and charged.

True, Linda. Wouldn’t ruin lives, stop them from becoming nurses, lawyers, etc. The biggest concern of school officials and the Township police is that football players would be suspended for 30 days. (Required for alcohol-related offenses of students involved in athletics). Sad, sad attitude.

I thought that if they are minors then their police records are kept confidential, and wiped clean when they attain adulthood.

And "the fullest extent of the law" isn't quite as bad as you imply - if they are minors. And if they are adults then they should know better and not get off so easy.

"Jim McGowan - do you realize if these kids were charged with underage drinking that their entire future could be altered?  Scholarships could be lost. "

Tough. Do the crime...  Why should they all get a free pass? Attitudes like yours contributes to these types of things getting all too commonplace in my opinion.

I agree with Parkerbaby01...Police are not out to ruin kids lives because of poor choices in their teen years. There were kids there that attend Williamson Trade School and other career paths like the ones you stated.  This one stupid decision on their part would have had ended any bright futures they may have had. Hopefully most of the kids learned from this and that should be the point.

Jim McGowan - do you realize if these kids were charged with underage drinking that their entire future could be altered?  Scholarships could be lost.  Career paths such as nursing, teaching, law enforcement, doctors, etc. would not come to fruition.  Do good kids who make a stupid choice deserve to be punished to the fullest extent of the law?

@Jim, Ken,

Any penalty for supplying "seventeen cases of beer" for the underage boozers?

Does anyone know if citations, or parking tickets given out for illegal parking?
