You could always move here, Moogles. All but like two of the cops in my town are in their 20s and they let their high school friends get away with alcohol consumption all the time. Hell, one of the officers was almost expelled when she was a senior in high school for bringing vodka in a water bottle to class. We have some high-quality law enforcement in these parts. 'Murrica.
Does anyone know a good place (UK and preferably not online cos I prefer to try things on, especially with the garment in question) know a good place to buy good suits at a cheap(ish) price?
I need a second work suit; going navy cos it can transition between work and bars relatively easily, budget about 175 pounds.
Topman has served me well in the past, and their suits are very nicely cut for the slim, but I'd like to go full wool.
Gotta make that quota, man.
Do you go to school? You won't be able to get out of it, or so I've heard, if you do , but I think you can defer it to a later date, like when you're on break or something.

pm me any reports/questions that you may have
(it may take a couple of days for me to respond, though)
... yeah. The world kinda sucks that way.
Moogles, your treatment by the police does sound like overkill on their part. Compared to the phenomenon of a group of 13-16 year-olds having a party supplied with alcohol, at least, which does merit serious intervention. On a related note, my best friend was once told by a police officer that they don't actually have monthly/quarterly/whatever quotas for tickets or arrests, just that if they in general show little results for their work, they get flak for not doing their jobs (an observation with which I'm sure of all us who work can commiserate).
"What's it gonna be? I don't know. But maybe along the way, you take my hand, tell a few jokes, and have some fun. C'mon, pal. You're not afraid, are ya?"
I think if you really wanted out you could show that you have some sort of bias and they would exclude you because of your supposed role of being impartial.
It's a personal ethics call though.
You could always get lucky and be expelled from a pre-trial motion too.
Dunno about the States but in Canada you're allowed so many times just to expel jurors for basically no reason.
I got summoned a few months ago, went in, sat there and didn't even get called in to even talk with them. There were supposed to be two cases, but the second one got cancelled. So I got out before 11am and had a day off of work and am safe from getting summoned again for 3 years I believe.
