   Discussion: Have you ever done anything illegal?
Sara Woodward · 19 years, 7 months ago
do you think underage drinking (no driving involved) would fall under the minor stuff category or the yes category?
A girl named Becca Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
Ooh.  Good question...I didn't even think of that, and just voted for the minor traffic stuff option....I knew I was forgetting something.  Oh well.  :)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
I don't think underage drinking is illegal. Selling or giving alcohol to a minor is the crime.
Lisa Kay Back · 19 years, 7 months ago

it depends on the state and the circumstances. In the state of Tennessee (where I lived when I was underage) you could legally drink if you were under 21 as long as someone over 21 had purchased the alcohol, you had your parent/guardian's permission and were in a private place (like your house, not a bar)  Drinking in private without their permission was illegal.

strange, huh.

Starfox Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
Nope, many States have "minor in possession" laws.
Sara Woodward Back · 19 years, 7 months ago

oops! disclaimer for anyone (especially any law enforcement) reading this. I am not offering a confession of any underage drinking that may have occurred while i was underage. I was just bringing it up. :-)

btw, what's the statute of limitations on that?

Starfox Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
In most cases, underage drinking is at most a Class B Misdemenor, so depending on the state, it's one to two years.

Not so much as a parking ticket - I'm dull what can I say? *g*
soul groove feline · 19 years, 7 months ago
hrm. i'm currently skipping class. is that illegal? :)
Josh Woodward Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
Yes. The mounties are tracking down your IP address as I speak.
Brian Dinsky Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
i take pride in the fact that i found that funny as hell
Annika · 19 years, 7 months ago
You're missing the "Ohhh yes, and I was in rehab for 4 months" choice. 'Cause I'm sure I'm not the only one that would pick that! :^p
Talcott · 19 years, 7 months ago

Drinking and such, not to mention a lot of jaywalking.
Technicaly, anytime you cross the street and it isn't a crosswalk, you're breaking the law.

And then there's copywrite law... ;-)


renita Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
same here :)

although, if you count defunct, outdated city bylaws that were never struck from the rulebooks--there's a few more :)

such as. apparently in Vancouver, you're still supposed to have someone run ahead of a motorized vehicle shouting "Get Out of the Way! Horseless carriage!" or some such stuff.
Starfox · 19 years, 7 months ago
Bah, EVERYONE here (at least in the U.S. I can't speak for Canada) has broken a law at some point. We have so many damn laws that it is virtually impossible to have never broken a law.

Of course, our own government violates the law every single day (especially yesterday when it robs millions of American blind), but that's a topic for a different thread.

Most I've ever done is mainly traffic type stuff. One time I did spend a few hours in a jail for asaulting a guy who raped a friend of mine, but I maintain he had it coming. :)

I was arested for dancing in a fountain and being a general nussance, I am the reason there is a fence around it... every once in a while i look at it and think, "that fence is scale-able"

I was arrested for plasic wrapping all the cars in the police parking lot... after I was arested for the fountain thing.

I was arested for breaking the town curfew MANY times.

hhm... things I haven't been caught for?

I'll never tell. ;-)

Brian Dinsky Back · 19 years, 7 months ago

wow, town curfew...i'm sorry to hear that was in effect to bgin with.  how...*Daikatana* of them...

Michael (foof) Maki · 19 years, 7 months ago
I've committed and been convicted of a felony.  Luckily, though, I was a minor at the time, so me telling you is the only way you could ever find out. :-)
Michael (foof) Maki Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
I killed a man in Bismarck just to watch him die...
Starfox Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
Citation please?
nate... Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
I dont' know that he got a citation.
Brian Dinsky Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
heh, been there, done that, got out of it, thank god.
Kate Leahy · 19 years, 7 months ago
Oh, damn.  Now I should change it . . . I got arrested for civil disobedience at the SOA protest one year.  I only had to pay a $50 fine, though.  That's pretty lame.  There were nuns who got hard jail time.
George E. Nowik Back · 19 years, 7 months ago

katie dropped the boom boom and had to pay the bling bling.  poor nuns.

Tell me about it.  The transcript of the sentencing hearing is really funny . . . the judge gave one of them three months and her statement was "Um, have you *seen* my record?"
Rachel Beck Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
I've just got two parking tickets (paid, though I don't believe the first one was legit).

But an SOA protest-- I _hope_ someday to have one of those on my record. Good for you.
nate... · 19 years, 7 months ago
No no. Of course not!

I'm sweet and innocent! O:-)

Zach · 19 years, 7 months ago
I've participated in the indulgence of certain illegal substances, but that's all in the past now.
Erica: movin' to Ohio!! · 19 years, 7 months ago
well, i stole a lot when i was younger...used drugs in high school....carried a *weapon* on school property; it was a razor, for me...but no one seemed to listen or i had a habit of dating men at least ten years older than i when i was between 14 and, label me "jail bait"....other than that, nope, i'm a good kid.
Brian Dinsky · 19 years, 7 months ago

hell, i'm breaking two laws right now with this cd-r i'm burning (then again, it's so common now that everyone and their grandma does it, so that almost doesn't count) as well as the flammable material (you saw nothing, my friend!) resting inbetween my lips. teehee!

Arbie · 19 years, 7 months ago

I don't think herb should be illegal so ....other than that just a couple of times when I drove when I was borderline.

Just curious, or maybe old, or both (or maybe it's an American thing?), a couple of people have mentioned SOA protests. I am not familiar with that acronym. What is it?

beth-pseudocanuck! Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
school of the americas in georgia. [arguably former] terrorist training school. i'm sure someone else can provide a much better explanation, but that's the gist of it...
