BC Law School Students Partying As If They Were Undergraduates

From the police blotter at the BU student newspaper, The Daily Free Press:
Law School Student in Need of Good Lawyer

Just before 11 p.m. on Sept. 7, several Brighton residents contacted the Boston Police Department complaining of noise disturbances on Lake Street. Officers who arrived at the scene discovered more than 100 partygoers drinking an assortment of beer and liquor inside the apartment.

Officers advised a group of males who resided at the location to end the party, but the group asserted they were all of-age Boston College Law School students. Eventually, the group agreed to eject their guests.

As neighbors thanked the officers for dissolving the loud party, one of the apartment residents began to protest the police presence. The 21-year old white male was later placed under arrest when officers were forced to reenter the house and clear the remaining 50 guests who had still not left.

The suspect remained disruptive at the station and caused unnecessary delays in the booking process until 12:20 a.m.
I think law students ought to be taught that admission to the bar can be jeopardized by a past record of arrests and/or convictions.

Edit (7:30 pm):  The Allston-Brighton TAB has covered this and other drinking-related arrests over the last weekend in A-B.

I LIVE NEXT DOOR AND THIS SAME GROUP HAD THE FIRE DEPT. AT THE HOUSE ON TUESDAY SEPT. 11TH.@ 5:00PM. WE HEARD A SMOKE ALARM COMING FROM THE SECOND FLOOR. THIS IS THE SAME PARTY APARTMENT. WE RANG THE DOOR BELL..NO ANSWER. WE CALLED BFD, WHEN THE FIRE DEPT. ARRIVED THE STUDENTS THEN ANSWERED THE DOOR.
NO FIRE.
THESE PEOPLE HAVE OCCUPIED THIS PROPERTY FOR ONE MONTH.

THIS CLEARLY SHOWS THE DISREGUARD B.C. STUDENTS HAVE FOR THE AREA.

I live in this house, so let me set your facts straight.
1) The fire alarm was going off in the FIRST floor apt, which is currently unoccupied. It was set off by work that was being done in that apt.
2) It was going off when we arrived home that day. We were probably not home when you rang the doorbell because we were at the library. Doing work. We came in the other entrance to our house, so I can understand why you didn't see us come in.
3) You need to calm down.

But the all-caps typing is definitely effective.
