What is your opinion on the laws about drinking in public?
In many western states it is illegal to drink in public and even to be drunk while being in public.

What's your take on this? Do you support such laws or not?

I don't. Though drinking while driving and driving drunk is bad. Shouldn't be against the law to drink outside a bar, at least.

Some of these laws date back to the turn of the century when public drunkenness was a serious problem.

In Texas (yes, it's not the West) counties were allowed to determine alcohol sales law after prohibition ended. For that reason you'll find completely dry counties and everything in between.

Bought a flask years ago, have enough tolerance that i don't look like I'm drunk after 3-4 drinks. Also, I'm long past the age of acting like a fucking retard while drunk.

I agree with drinking and driving laws and the laws. Otherwise it should be treated as an aggravating factor (thus increase the penalties of a sentence), even worse if near children under 12, for disorderly conduct instead of it being illegal.

Why should anybody have to be subjected to someone else's drunken shenanigans?
Sure, if everyone were level-headed and responsible enough not to get wasted beyond control while in public, it'd be fine, but that's not the case, so that's why those laws exist.

To all the people saying there would be drunk dipshits all over the streets if the law was removed:

I have seen endless videos of drunk/intoxicated as fuck people on American streets even though this law is active… They are there no matter whether you have such a law.

Drunk people start fights and break shit.

This happens because of alcohol's interaction with brain cell's GABA receptors which makes them much more likely to fail to pass on nerve impulses.

This necessarily means that a drunk's complex, higher functions (such as moral considerations) will fail long before more simple functions (such as the gross motor skills required to smash a pint glass into someone fucking face for vaguely looking in their direction).

Drinking in public is prohibited for very good reasons which are in total agreement with natural law (i.e. not having a pint glass smashed in your face or through your window by a fucking drunk).

Drink inside a public or private house you fucking dipsomaniacs.

If you support such way of thinking you must also support european standard gun control since less people having guns apparantly would make gun crimes less.
It basically is the same story.

@massdebater
The current way things are here many crimes committed while drunk (IE: theft, indecent exposure) are treated less severely. Exactly because the courts consider a man not fully responsible for his actions when under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They might add counseling as part of the sentence but not necessarily.

My idea is to incite responsibility while drunk without punishing those who can drink and behave.

Comparing alcohol to guns
Holy shit, you ARE an idiot.
The problem with prohibiting guns is that criminals and people intending to do harm to others won't give a shit about any laws, and if they wanted to acquire one they would do so though illegal means. If you forbid regular citizens from owning guns, you're robbing them of the chance of defending themselves.
How does alcohol even enter into the same category? They don't compare at all.

I'm comparing the scenario, not the guns to the alcohol you idiot.
You claimed that banning public drinking can't be bad as it could only possibly decrease the amount of public drinking.
If that's your way of thinking then that'd mean that banning guns could also only possibly decrease the amount of gun possession.

Depends really. I like to drink a few beers/ciders in the park quite a lot, either late evenings on the weekends or if its a nice day in the summer go for a picnic/chill out in the park with beer.

Whether or not it is 'ok' largely has to do with 'how' you're drinking, as in what your intentions are. If you just want to get blind drunk and make a scene when other people would like to be out with their children, walking the dogs or playing sports; it's bad. If you are going to sit on a park bench with a bottle of vodka from 11am (something I've begun seeing in London due to all the subhuman eastern europeans invading), it's pretty off-putting. You stink, you're not social, you are a blot on the landscape and you are making women and children feel uneasy.

If they do the same thing after 9/10pm, I don't care. No one is around at night, enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful view of the stars (or more likely the clouds; this is England after all). Having police patrolling to stop people drinking in parks/ on street benches is a complete waste of tax-payer money.

Unfortunately the UK has recently taken an 'American' approach to law and as such has taken away common sense and replaced it with strict laws that try to cover all the angles (and ALWAYS have loop-holes). This means that police will (and do) harrass a couple of 75 year old men having a beer whilst they play a game of chess in the park at lunch time. Obviously the law is intended to stop scummy teenagers and unemployed people from ruining areas for families; but these new laws allow for no common sense.

In fairness though, having met way too many foreigners, most of which were filth; I have come to the conclusion that they are lacking any semblance of common sense; Indian shop-keepers IDing 50+ people, a black boss (shameful I know, gotta have dem quotas though) insisting that we do the job as his superior told him to the letter, despite the fact that it would clearly be easier/quicker to do it the 'common-sense way'; generic brown retailer refusing to sell spoons to people without proof that they are over 18.

Just mind-boggling stupidity, though I suppose it means those kind of all encompassing idiot-proof laws the Yanks are fond of are required. How the West has fallen. ;/

I grew up with dry counties, and every place was different. Then I went to cities, and I realized drinking in public at any time of the day is something you can get away with, like anything else, if you can act alpha enough.

The whole thing is silly. I know people who drink beer when they drive. Being drunk and doing anything dangerous is irresponsible. Being shitfaced in public frequently is degenerate.

My take on it, that It's a sensible set of laws and should be common sense to not wanting to be drunk in public. Anything can happen to you. However, I'm curious as to what's going on with people where you live that you're looking to be drunk any given hour of the day wherever you please? I mean, you're in Germany, don't you have bigger concerns than boozing in public? Why not use that time to press your government to pay the invaders to return to their homes?

If you aren't causing shit I don't really see the issue other than it sets a bad example for the children. A normal dude stumbling home is a fine source of revenue for the city though, so it's unlikely to change right now. It's not dissimilar to small town speed traps where the entire pd, 2 or 3 cops just sit on the highway going in and out of town to write tickets for anyone going 1 mile over the limit.

Police need all the leeway they can to shut down the plebbing out of drunkards before harm comes to anyone. I do think outright banning people from consuming a single drink in public is taking it too far, but having such a law on the books, to be enforced discretionarily, so that the police can shut down groups of niggers before they begin their chimpout is a wise maneuver.
