    Sorry if this is kind of long.
    Yesterday I was on the way to the hospital to visit my fiance. She is having heart surgery on monday.
    Anyway, I was headed up 30th st. by my house, and traffic was moving very slow. There was a transit bus a couple of cars ahead so I couldn't see up ahead, but I saw a cop car swing around on the other side of the street, lights flashing, and bystanders pointing. I looked in the direction everybody was pointing, and saw my neighbor, so messed up on whatever that she could barely walk, and some dude helping her. Another cop car came up from behind me and the cop put her in the car.
    Traffic started moving, and when I got to the corner, my neighbor's car was in the middle of the street.
    I went around the corner and parked to go see what happened, and the cops were talking to some other people. I couldn't really tell what happened so I went back to the truck, by then I saw the paramedics coming. So I go around the block to see who got hurt, and it turned out my neighbor hit someone.
    Anyway, I had my visit with my fiance and returned home, and the neighbor's car was gone. I looked up the sheriff's website and found out she was arrested for DUI and she went to Las Colinas and her car was impounded.
    So guess what
    Today, she is home and so is her car. GRRRRRRR
    Thanks to her utter stupidity, someone is in the hospital with injuries, and she gets out free.
    If I was just a couple of seconds earlier I might be the one being sent to the hospital. GRRRR
    What is wrong with this picture? I think she is a menace to society and she needs to be locked up for awhile and learn her lesson. How can they let her AND her car out after she got arrested for DUI and causing bodily harm to someone?
    Maybe I should go to court and tell the judge how I feel.

    I'm sure it isn't as easy as it looks. I'm sure she'll have to go to court and all that ugly stuff: the rammifications of DUI are not minor. I find it odd that she has her car back, but something tells me that she aint in the clear.
    Still, I can totally feel your anger, she shouldn't have her car back. I'm glad to hear that you are ok, though! The best of luck to your fiance on Monday! Though I'me sure she wont need any luck at all and will be fine. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    This lady is 51 y/o and she can't hold a job so her daddy pays her rent all the time and he probably bailed her and her car out.
    The sad thing is, she got taken to the hospital by the paramedics twice in the last year for OD'ing on pharmaceuticals.
    A couple years ago she invited us over to her place for a Christmas gift swap. She was sooo messed up on Soma pills that she couldn't open the gift we gave her. We left after about 10 minutes. And I have NEVER seen her without a glass of wine in her hand. Even at 8:00 in the morning.
    Anyway I fear she'll do it again and again until she kills someone or herself, she is the kind of person who doesn't listen and does what she wants. And whoever bailed her out should be locked up also.

    She has clogged arteries was worried that they were going to do a double or triple bypass on her heart. At least that's what the doctors said [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Turns out they're going to do an angeoplasty and she'll be out in a couple days [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    While your anger may be just, it is directed in slightly the wrong direction. We as LEO's have the same problems with the system, I cannot tell you how many times I have arrested someone, lodged them at County just to see them back in my jurisdiction by the end of my shift. Its a complicated issue, usually involving overly crowded jail space. Thus people arrested on minor offences get let out as quick as possible. Can't tell you what the answer is, just that it is just as frustration to LEO's as it is to victims.

    Thank the War on Drugs for clogging the legal system with fairly harmless offenders and leaving a real menace like your neighbor free to injure or possibly even kill people. I think drug use is bad for the individual & for society, but it's sheer insanity to fill jails with pot smokers while freeing the drunks.

    Amen to that!
