(NECN: Scot Yount, Boston) - Boston Mayor Tom Menino made the rounds around Allston Friday - which is traditionally full of college students' moving vans for the upcoming Sept. 1 move-in date.
Menino addressed a variety of issues, including underage drinking.
Boston University has essentially worked out a deal with Boston police where when officers come across underage drinking, the "preferred response" will be arrest - essentially a no-tolerance policy.
Menino says that policy is going a little too far.
"I want to educate them so we can move forward. It's not going to be going in and get all the college students who might be in a bar. They may come from some state where they have 18-year-old drinking. A little different in each state, so they come to Boston to come to school, we have to be a little lenient and educate them, that's what we have to do," Menino says. "We don't want to have that binge drinking."
