Drunk driver kills an officer.........

I would like to think that at least the kind of people that have such respect in thier cars would have equal or more respect for life on the street. Please, PLEASE don't drink and drive fellow FM'ers!
Cpl Szuba of the Mishawaka IN PD and his K-9 "Ricky" were killed by a drunk driver that was fleeing from another officer that Cpl Szuba was enroute to assist. The first link is one of the many news releases. The second link is to a picture documentary video for the officer and his K-9. The video is absolutely heartbreaking so be forewarned if you are a cryer. I know I did.

Sad and a waste of a good person.

I drink and I drink a LOT, I LOVE to drink, but I never drive after having more than 2 drinks.

Simple. Safe. Effective. Alive.

(Being fat I can have 2 and still drive...)

Re: Drunk driver kills an officer.........

Now I may step on a lot of toes...and some of you may not like it but I don't care.

Pesonally (my opinion) I think that the penalties for DWI aren't stiff enough...at least in my state. I've been friends with, had family members, co workers, close personal friends that have all had dealings with people who drive after drinking. At one point or another they've either been a victim of a DWI related accident or they've been accused of DWI and had to serve nothing more than a night in jail, a fine, and a meeting or two.

you won't find a drop of alcohol anywhere near my house, OTHER than the stuff we burn in the race car. But you can't drink that stuff

GET OUT & VOTE THIS NOVEMBER!!

I too believe the penalties are not stiff enough!
