Where were your children?

johnboy 1 January 2009 2

The ABC’s got a piece on how well behaved the crowds were in Canberra for New Year’s Eve.

With, that is, the exception of one silly 18 year old who punched a policeman in the head hard enough to put the officer in hospital.

The only area of concern it seems is the number of kiddies out for the night on the demon drink.

    “Superintendent Varley says despite the incident, crowds were generally well behaved…

    “It was disappointing to see the number of underage drinkers detained throughout the evening.

    “I urge parents to pay more attention to the whereabouts of their children. Know where they are, who they are with and what they plan to do.”

But but but, isn’t it The Government’s Job to look after everyone’s children?

Shouldn’t the purveyors or the demon drink be coping a hiding for some of kiddy alcohol shenanigans? When I was nudging legal adulthood, lying to my parents about where I would be, with whom and doing what was standard operating procedure.

If I let my kids out in Civic on NYE (I didn’t) that seems a legal, if foolish, thing to do. Someone selling them alcohol was an illegal thing to do. =-/
