There was alcohol on the premises, and my belief is that even if there wasn't an assault at the property, the police would have been called since the party was loud and unusual for this house.
According to the police, there are similar incidents in other local neighborhoods where teens were told of a party through MySpace postings. With a mixture of alcohol and teens, properties are damaged, and police were called.
What can be done to prevent further damage and assaults? The teen in our neighborhood was perhaps one blow away from death. Will it take a murder or manslaughter charge against another Pleasanton teen for everyone to wake up to these events? What can parents and neighbors do?
