“Excessive drinking” reportedly the main cause of the hospitalizations at Hot 93.7 HOT JAM in Hartford.
90 people were hospitalized during Friday night’s Hot 93.7 HOT JAM, a concert in Hartford, Connecticut featuring performances from Chance The Rapper, Kyle, and PnB Rock, AP reports. Police say that “excessive drinking” was the cause for many of the hospital visits.
50 underage drinking referrals were given out at the show, according to Hartford Deputy Chief Brian Foley. The deputy stated that a large number of those hospitalized for “severe intoxication” were also underage. The “extremely prevalent” tailgating, partying and excessive alcohol consumption was cited as well. The crowd is said to have been made up primarily of people in their late teens and early twenties.
While those who were charged at the show were mostly issued summons to appear in court, a number of arrests were also made.
Is Going to Law School Worth It Anymore?A 2015 study by the Access Group Center for Research and Policy Analysis found that only one in five people who graduated from law school between 2010 and 2015 strongly agreed that obtaining a law degree was worth the cost. Perhaps more troubling, only 38% of law school graduates, down from 56% between 2000 and 2009, described themselves as having a good job after graduation. With four out of five recent law school graduates at least somewhat regretting their decision to attend – and six out of 10 failing to find a good job after graduating – it makes sense to examine whether going to law school is still worth it in 2017. Keeping in mind the high tuition costs, interest rates and potential salaries, another good metric to consider would be its ROI (return on investment), calculated as its salary-to-debt ratio in a new study by online lender SoFi.
