One Comment of the Day begets another.
On a post sharing a reader's views about recent CU grad Zoey Ripple, who was shot after drunkenly walking into the wrong house, another site visitor shared his very similar (although not as painful) experiences.
I wandered into a house of college students once and fell asleep on their couch. I too was confused why they were yelling and thought they were my friends roommates. I ended up getting away luckily, and they were fairly peaceful guys luckily.
Thanks to the Make My Day Law, which I do fully support, that was a major catalyst in my quitting drinking alcohol. It is still one of the main things that pops up in my head when I think of reasons not to relapse, because next time I will get shot or arrested for sure.
Oh and the house I broke into was in that same neighborhood, so I guarantee its a problem, the DA isn't lying ;-),
