heh, I agree. Out of all the house parties I've thrown or been to while going to the U, I've never even heard of the cops writing tickets on the people throwing the party. At any given party the cops could write tickets for noise, parking violations, illegal kegs, etc., and they never do, even at parties that are totally out of hand. A lot different than other places, where it's not unusual for people to get over a $1000 in fines for throwing parties.
Answering the door of my house with kegs and a shit load of loud drunk people behind me:
"How old are you?"
"You're drunk aren't you!?"
"I wouldn't say I've had that much.... I wouldn't say I've had anything to drink, officers."
lots of glaring from the cops
"You need to get these people out of here."
I've seen the same thing happen at so many other people's houses, I guess I think the Salt Lake cops aren't that bad just for that reason. Although we did have detectives from the crime prevention unit come by one day, and tell us that they'd somehow get us evicted if we had any more parties...
Red light running is like the state pastime around here too, they hardly ever pull people over for stop sign and stop light bullshit.
