    All that's going to do is encourage people to avoid sending invitations through Facebook, and use more secure channels that aren't being watched. A clumsy, unfair, poorly implemented, short-term solution to a problem that's much bigger.

    The stupidity... At the very least the police, when they arrived, should have realised their stupid mistake and just go away.

    And yeah, I've been to illegal parties, and they are NOT advertised via any well-known social networking site for just this reason.

    WTF? Even if it was an all-night rave party, how is a police chopper and SWAT officers necessary at all? At 4pm... Come on.

    Did this happen in the UK? That would make sense, since they already have video cameras watching people. Eventually, they won't even be able to fart in their own bathroom without Big Brother knowing about it.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Seems alright to me.

    They were checking out a tip whilst returning from another assignment.

    The "local residents" seem to be the ones at fault. False tips, especially mass false tips about the same thing, are a waste of police time.

    Anomaly. Move along.

    Nice to see the tax payers money being spent wisely.

    Actually Facebook-arranged parties have gotten out of control and a few houses have been trashed in the UK, which the media has made a big thing of. So perhaps the cops were nervous about this being an actual situation? That said, yeah, they should have just toddled off back to the station when they realized it wasn't some Bacchanalia.
