Lexington city officials are working to curb out of control partying near UK's campus. Many residents say wild parties are a growing problem along streets heavily populated by students and the situation gets out of hand following UK games.

Friday, officers with Lexington and UK police, and city code enforcement went door to door to hand out flyers with the laws and penalties. More than 1,000 residents along Limestone and surrounding streets were warned they could get fined or arrested for violating the policies.

The initiative is all part of Mayor Newberry's UK Task Force.

    This appears to be an unconstitutional example of profiling by the police department. They have targeted a group of predominately white students and have accused them all of criminal activity and selected the entire group for persecution. That is illegal under any concept of freedom and equal application of the rule of law. They would never dare do that in a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood even though the same problem is rampant. They will not do it in a predominantly black neighborhood either. If they want to enforce the law the police department resources would be better utilized in arresting and deporting illegals than attacking a lot of innocent students that are presumed guilty until proven innocent. Der Fuhrer Newberry is still employing racist selective enforcement of the law.
