Sadly under this obama mess our youth has been so dumbed down. As we all know this obama mess has rubber stamped his approval on every crack pot liberal whim from any and all liberal extremisist fringe groups. He has lowered the bar on everything from our military, marriage, race relations, dumbing down our youth, his cheap gun grab, that obama care ponzi scheme, jobs, that awful political correctness, the VA, the IRS, over tolerance to radical islamic muslum terrorist,criminal illegal alieans, etc, etc. This is only the result of those awful things in our society. Wake up America. We have a trojan horse president.

So someone forced teenagers to take drugs they didn't want to take. Anytime there are pyrotechnics the odds are people are going to be seriously injured or dead. People are going to demand to be stupid enough to subject themselves injury. That's a given in the course of human fallibility from gross stupidity.

I thought it was illegal to drink under 21 and to use drugs. Boston is the heart of bleeding heart liberalism so it's OK to break the law, liberals are pro criminal and anti American decency. How about a minimum jail sentence for law breakers no matter how young.

If that stupid worthless governor Deval Patrick worried less about cigarettes & e-cigs, and concentrated more on illegal drugs & alcohol, maybe there would not have been this tragedy!

This article didn't give much to go on. Under age drinking and drugs, not only putting their life at risk but others. How did all of this get in the venue if there was security? I know some showed up drunk and I am sure you would have been able to tell that had security done what was needed and not allowed those teens in the venue.

Now if all lived under Ron Paul's perfect society, all drugs would've been legal, and Darwinism would've worked it's magic.

There is no concept called "Darwinism". You clearly don't understand genetics or biological science. No surprise there based on your comment.

Ron Paul equals anarchy because that's what liberalism is - ultra-liberal chaos and confusion leading directly into autocratic fascism.

Wisdom dictates to you not to play with ineffective sarcasm, because it definitely backfired.

Now prove any 'god" ever physically existed. It's DNA expression of the brain as inherited from parents, their parents, and ancestors via familial DNA.

People are only born with the potential to develop any logic skills or conscience. Then it's up to the elders in their lives as to whether or not children develop either through nurturing by elders. Most, in not all, elders are hypocrites, and children catch on to hypocrisy of their elders very early in life. By the time puberty rolls in, no one has any control over teens in hormonal overload. Depending on the behavioral examples set by elders, from the time their offspring are babies, will typically determine how pubescents behave after puberty and into adulthood. If parents are hypocrites, so too will their children typically be as well for life.
