There Is Such a Thing as an Acceptable Loss of Life in a Free SocietySubmitted by Michaelwiseguy on Mon, 05/27/2013 - 03:19
There is no such thing as "Perfect Safety".
The Nanny State can't protect us from ourselves.
An Example of the Failed Nanny State and Solution;
DUI's serve to destroy peoples lives and business activity with no demonstrated hazardous activity on the part of the driver most times.
Almost everyone who goes to a bar or restaurant drinks and drives. Welcome to the real world. If there is no evidence of impaired driving, then there is no reason to pull a driver over!
I've had many years to analyze the whole DUI scam. It's ruining many good peoples lives. What it boils down to is a Cat and Mouse Game between Civilians and Police.
I beat the DUI stop twice with their DUI test games. I have no DUI's.
That being said, I avoid going out after dark and spending my money at local businesses for fear of being targeted for a DUI. A business tax revenue loss. Too F-fing bad.
There should be an "Impaired Vehicle Driving Evidence Act". This should be the criteria every law enforcement officer must adhere to before pulling over a suspected drunk driver. With no visual evidence of impaired driving to be presented in court of impaired driving against the driver, the judge and jury should throw out a drunk driving charge!
Every police car has a video camera that can contain video evidence of impaired driving. If such evidence of impaired driving does not exist, then there should be no prosecution of DUI in most situations.
In the future, government employees better have a dam good reason for pulling us over and not for revenue generation which is not acceptable, or there's gonna be hell to pay.
