    It's a misdemeanor, but yes. His biggest concern though, is the felony charge of obstructing justice.

    Police reported confiscating 97 unopened cans of beer and 30 empty ones, along with an empty half-gallon of vodka and an empty bottle of champagne.
    They wasted no time hitting the hard stuff, didn't they?

    Well I guess I can understand that, I just didn't know the law were that way.

    I think the restrictions of serving alcohol to minors here - which btw is at age 18 - only apply to place with public alcohol licens.

    You aren't burdened by a litigious society like the USA.
    Also, you don't have as many cars.

    Think about it like this:


    * Cool Parent supplies alcohol to underage drinkers at his house.

    * Star QB gets hammered and ends up smashing through a plate-glass


    window at Cool Parent's home.

    * Star QB's family sues the living shit out of Cool Parent.

    Or:

    * Cool Parent supplies alcohol to underage drinkers at his house.

    * Four regular kids decide to hop into a car which is parked down the


    street (out of eyesight of Cool Parent) to go get some cigarettes.

    * Four regular kids get into a drunken-driving accident and die.

    * Cool Parent is charged with involuntary manslaughter for supplying


    the booze.

    Would either of those situations happen in Denmark?

    =Z=

    What is a half-gallon of vodka?
    I think they ment a 1.75 L.

    This whole thing really isn't that crazy. Several of my buddies parents let them have booze at their graduation party, and they supplied the kegs.


    All the kids my age pee their pants, it's the coolest.

    Here - both of those situations (if you make the first one more generic and just say a kid hurts themselves at Cool Parent's house) have happened here many many many times.

    My next-door-neighbor's last kid had his Prom (a school-year-ending formal dance) last weekend and the son wanted to have a bunch of kids over to his home after the dance, as his date was not welcome at the house of the big party (feuding with the hostess or some other nonsense).
    My neighbor was all "No way!" and ran down his list of things HE would have to do:
    constant watch, take their keys, be prepared to shuttle people home, etc. etc.
