Witness the case of Jamie Lockard, a 53-year-old resident of Lawrenceburg, Indiana, who was stopped last March on suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DWI). A roadside Breathalyzer test determined that Lockard’s blood alcohol was under the legal limit.
Since incriminating Breathalyzer results are regarded as infallibly conclusive for the purpose of securing a conviction, a negative result offers immediate exoneration – correct?
One would think so. And one would be wrong.

SENT TO A FRIEND:
And you AGREE with this?
I would like to see more respect for authority. Lack of it will get you in trouble, and rightly so.
THAT SENT ME INTO ORBIT!
Oh, yes, right or wrong, we can’t be disrespectful to the massa!
Authority EARNS respect.
Cops have become nothing more than revenue agents for the state. Roadside radar traps make them into highwaymen who robbing innocent travelers who fail to follow their posted warnings.
Seriously, who designs a road for NINETY or a HUNDRED, then posts it with 45, 50,55, 60 or 65, to nail the unsuspecting.
Seriously, roadside checkpoints for license, registration, insurance, drinking, drugs, and anything else we can think of, belong to an old WW2 movie about Nazi Germany. Where are your papers? Comrade, citizen, subject.
Take DWI or DUI! It’s an excuse to hassle folks. OK, if you have an accident or, heaven forbid, hurt someone, then you should get the book tossed at you. (Unless your name is Ted Kennedy!) Otherwise, forget it. All the horror stories, come from repeat offenders — some with 10 or 15 “convictions” — or even police officers.
Sorry, but they have lost “respect”, because of their conduct.
The “Dial 911 and die!” is a toungue in cheek recognition that they are no more than a clean up squad. If they weren’t busy collecting revenue, then maybe they could go after real criminals.
End the drug war now. Pardon all the non-violent drug offenders. Close the FDA, DEA, and BATF.
Liberty and freedom for all!
