    To the parents of all the teens (estimated ~100+) that attended the party last night on Reamy Way hopefully your son or daughter made it home safely especially after the Loudoun County Sheriffs office paid a visit to the party and all the teens ran like cockroaches out of the house with bottles, flasks, and other garbage and spread the garbage throughout the neighborhood. (Sturman, Scara & Reamy). The deputies did stop a couple of teens who were in a car and detained them for a long time but they subsequently released them to the custody of the parents who came by and picked them up.

    Wonder if parents who owned the house where the party was being held has been cited for allowing a party to be serving alcohol to underage minors? I remember that happening many years ago when I was in high school that a classmate's parents were cited for same thing. By the way, I am sure that many a parent of those teens would probably laugh it off and let off a sigh knowing their son or daughter didn't get busted. They'll continue on with life as if that isn't important enough to sit down and discuss it with their kids. After all, many think their kid "wouldn't do a bad or illegal thing". Akin to "Oh, my son or daughter is such a good kid and wouldn't dare to do something like that". Ahhh teen years!

    Too bad there's no place for kids to hang out with each other in Broadlands.

    The Nature Center would be perfect but it houses a turtle and a snake, which are far more important.

    Im surprised Nature Center was proposed because teens wouldnt bother to go there. They would rather go to places where there isnt any adult supervision and where they can go do "fun" things like drink or smoke some weed. They eschew authority and adults. Not only that, they probably would DESTROY the Nature Center for all we know once they are given a free rein to the place /sarcasm off.

    We had a field party in high school that got busted by MP's (military base). As they were taking names they told me and my buddy to put out the bonfire with the keg. We splashed just enough to extinguish the flames, my buddy was then free to leave with over half the keg - they never checked.

    Somebody took off with my keys and another friend went to track him down to bring my keys back. While he was gone I sat with the last MP on site who was a 20 year old PFC that told me he was impressed by the size of the party and if he were off duty he would have joined us. We spent about a half hour hiding then pulling over other guys trying to show up to the party late. Then I'd run out and surprise whoever we were pulling over, have a laugh and told them the new location of the party.

    My buddy finally came back with my keys and we rolled to the new location. The only kid that got in trouble was the kid whose dad was the desk sergeant at the MP station that night. I'll never forget the MP on site getting on the radio and saying "uh SGT Barnes, your son is out here..."

    It's good to hear that kids today are all-american partiers the way my generation was so many moons ago.

    What rattled your cage Mikeo? Why are you so upset? I was just worried about the teens who are drinking underage, driving while impaired, driving around our neighborhood while we are driving in the neighborhood. Not to mention they garbage that was spread over multiple yards. This is acceptable behavior for some I guess but I expect more.

    Genco - of course it is not acceptable behavior. It wasn't when I was a teen, it is not now, nor will it be for the next generation.

    BUT, it happens. Call it a rite of passage, growing up, rebelious... whatever.
    Not sure why you would expect more from this generation however. Our ("royal our") kids are more spoiled, coddled, dotted, and privileged then any generation before.

    I don't think (at least I hope) that he was calling the kids out, but rather informing other parents who might not have been aware their kids might have been at an unsupervised party.
