We've been to RDC 4 times, always travel with friends 6-10 other couples, and we love the bar scene, going into town, etc. We've never ever ran into any police problems off or on the resort. This just amazes me if all this actually happened, as we've always felt very safe.
once a friend needed help walking home from disco and we were impressed that they stopped and asked 2 male friends, what was going on, now this was resort security. when it was explained and her hubby back them up, all was fine. we were pleased as they didn't know it was friends helping a friend.
As of under age drinking, I've also seen the bartenders flat out NO to young people with parents or not.
