Local law enforcement issued citations to 30 people for alcohol violations during extra enforcement actions on Nov. 15 and Nov. 17 through the Fake ID 101 program.

Here’s a recap of the Nov. 15 action, which focused on bar checks and included citations for the following 23 violations:

• Minor in possession — 16

• Use of a fake ID — four

• Interfering with duties of an officer — one

• Drug or drug paraphernalia possession — two

The Nov. 17 action included the following 15 violations:

• Minor in possession — 12

In addition, the Nov. 15 action included the issuing of Alcohol Beverage Control citations to three bars: The Cave, 1200 Oread Ave.; The Barrel House, 729 New Hampshire St.; and the Granada, 1020 Massachusetts St.

The Fake ID 101 program is funded by the Kansas Traffic Safety Resource Office, and the recent actions included assistance from the Lawrence Police Department, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, KU Public Safety and Alcohol Beverage Control.

They met their quota at the first house, so they spent the rest of the night following up on real problems.

Your lack of knowledge about the Prohibition era really needs to end.

Without prohibition, how would we keep all the prisons up and running? I think you just hate prison guards and want to see them out of work.

Would you feel the same way if they went after people who cheated on their taxes? Had garage sales every weekend? Booths at the Farmers market and not a one of them displaying a sales tax stamp? At least people who bought booze paid the taxes on it.

The Cave is the biggest underage bar in town, all you have to do is show an ID saying you are 18, and you can drink all you want.

I feel so much safer now that we are fighting underage drinking. If only we were as concerned about underage getting your legs blown off by an IED while fighting a war for your country.

We are a stupid nation..

Both universites should put a bar on campus enough to hold 2000. Keep $ on campus.
