Alcohol poisoning is a serious and life threatening medical emergency that results from drinking a harmful amount of alcohol. Both students who choose to drink and those who choose not to drink may encounter alcohol emergencies during their time at the universities. Sometimes students are afraid to seek emergency medical care when alcohol poisoning is suspected because they do not want to get themselves or others in trouble. In order to encourage students to seek emergency medical care, the University has instituted Student Amnesty for Alcohol Emergencies. The officer did nothing wrong - he could have potentially saved a life - you shouldn't punish someone for making a choice it's when they don't make a judgment call you loose lives or even worst - you have someone that doesn't care .
