When the points are calmly well made here, I can see that yes, I'm sure most of the students are well meaning, good people who just like to party. I don't want to lose sight of my younger days when I did stupid things. (I have kids now, and when you have kids, you can't help but see things in a bit of a different light.)
but loonpt, I must disagree again: they were not just peeing, they were defecating on the beaches. big difference. it's that kind of behavior that while perhaps not abnormal for drunk young partiers, it just can not be tolerated. nor climbing on fire engines which they did this year when the fire dept. was called. There HAS to be lines drawn for rude, unsafe behavior. I make my same point again, the people who do the stupid stuff ruin it for everyone. It sucks, yes. It's not abnormal behavior for young drunks, yes, but it's STILL NOT ACCEPTABLE.

In response to the above comment....yes, people are allowed to voluntarily associate as long as it doesn't involve things like thrashing our beaches, which is why law enforcement had to get involved and shut down beach access. And if more ridiculous stuff continues, more will have to be shut down. Makes sense doesn't it?
That is GREAT that you weren't one of the people who littered, disturbed the peace or used our public beaches for toilets, but unfortunately, some of your schoolmates did and because of THEIR behavior, all the kids who "don't do anything wrong" have to suffer the consequences. So assign blame where blame is due: YOUR schoolmates, not law enforcement.
The girls death is tragic beyond comprehension. I can't comment there, until we know the facts on why she died. But in the meantime, lets be just a tiny bit respectful and for a moment not feel the need to "protect the right to party."
