Drunk drivers should be shot
13 May 2006
Ok, get this. I was on the bus this morning on my way to work when I overheard the woman behind me bragging, BRAGGING, mind you, to her friend about how she had been driving somewhere and was drinking on her way there. (She was also talking on her cell phone, but that's a whole other debate.)

She admitted to being drunk and driving through a stop sign -- that was the violation that attracted the cop's attention. She was pulled over and given a ticket, but she GLOATED that the cop never caught the open container down between her feet, or the fact that she had been drinking.

What an incredibly selfish, inconsiderate, moronic imbecile. And you know she's going to go out and do it again -- she still has her license and it sounded like she wouldn't stop, even if they took it away. So, boo on the cop for not slapping her with a OUI (not that it would have done any good) but I think we should just shoot these drunk drivers to get them off the road, once and for all. Have you ever noticed that they always end up killing some other, innocent, person, but come out with hardly a scratch?

This work is in the public domain

I understand your outrage. This woman will end up with at least a DWI at some point. but she possibly may be killed herself, as well as causing injury or death to others. I do know of many incidents where drivers who were drunk died. Several were young people under 21.

There is no chance these folks will be 'shot". I understand your outrage. Penalties have been increased. There is technology that could be installed in new cars that would prevent ignition if the alcohol in the auto cabin read above a minimum level.

I say force feed them alcohol and then unleash them on a state controlled obstacle course complete with cliffs, rocky overhangs, busted glass and land mines.
Give em what they want

Flipside, you are an enabler.

Put them in a cell with the family who lost their loved one.
While your at it? Same goes for Bush & Co., with the Iraqi people.
