Ignored neighbors

The obvious questions that weren’t asked or answered in the article on Sunday about students falling through the roof of the garage on which they were partying in the not-so-early hours of the morning, is why were these partiers allowed to disrupt their neighborhood all night, despite the complaints of neighbors?

Why, when records prove that neighbors had asked for help from the police as early as 4:30 a.m., were there a bunch of drunken people still behaving dangerously and probably illegally in public (anyone underage, anyone unable to care for his/her own safety?) when the roof collapsed two hours later?

If I were the out-of-town parent of a teenager considering Cal Poly, and I heard about this kind of thing, I would send my child elsewhere.

I can certainly understand the frustration of the neighbors who had reached out for help, but got none.

What I can’t understand is who benefits from letting people break laws and destroy property?
