Comments: You've got to fight for your right to get drunk!

Being drunk in the privacy of your home, or a friend's home... cool. There should be no reason that the cops lug someone off for their "protection." This guy may or may not have been the bottle thrower, but they can't just walk in and haul him out because he starts video taping them. Wish I knew the whole story here.

Nevertheless, we have the rights to do what we wish, as long as we're not infringing on other's rights... or affecting their safety. Especially in private. Publicly, we still have those rights, but there are more responsibilities with them.

Can't wait for the 30th. We'll chow, get smashed and throw bottles at police cruisers as they go by! :)

I gotta say - if you're in a private home and not hurting anyone LET IT ALONE.

Key word - PRIVATE.

And as I learned....never let 'em in your door unless they got's the paperwork. Ouch.

Bet his next party won't be so well attended.

Very interesting analysis -- seems to be rather solid to me.

In addition -- if this law is upheld, it gives the government the absolute power to arrest someone to "protect" them...and if they have that power, then government also, by default, has the power to determine what is and what is not safe...oh but I guess they already have that power...drugs, seat belts, etc. Damn.

What?!

Jesus Christ, if you can't get drunk in your own home.. ?

Or would they have us giving up blogging altogether?
