Isn't this the ultimate goal of continually lowering the BAC limits for DUI? They can't make it illegal to buy or drink alcohol, but they can make it illegal to have it in your body.

CSB time.

A cop detained a guy in a motorcycle for parking in the wrong spot (at the side of the road) in a residential area I lived. The guy pointed out that every car on the block was parked the same way. So without missing the beat, he still gave the guy a ticket, and proceeded to make tickets to every single car in the block.

/ feels the same way. having gone on vacation a few times in my life, drinking in other cities in america feels foreign and like you're a criminal just for existing. plus, no to-go cups.
// this country is so funny about freedom. it lets hardened killers run free because of a poorly executed search, but it completely derails any notion of freedom for someone who might be having a good time not hurting anybody.

MrBallou: Isn't this the ultimate goal of continually lowering the BAC limits for DUI?


I don't think neo-prohibition groups like MADD are going to be able to get the BAC level reduced much below 0.08%. For starters, most states are already going bankrupt housing all of the people from the drug war. Moving to 0.06% is going to add to their correctional institution budget woes. You're also going to get a lot more people who protest their arrest claiming that they were not impaired, at least no more than you'd be when playing with the radio, talking on a cell phone or to a passenger, eating, drinking, ect... which is legal.

On a tangent, I hate how articles bring up that 0.08% is the "legal limit" when talking about incidents that have nothing to do with a vehicle. The only thing this guy was driving was his feet. Maybe they're trying to inform the reader using DUI as reference, but they always come off sounding like it is illegal to be in public with a 0.08% BAC.

Ahh yes, drinking at Guillette. County Fest or whatever its called is to blame for the nazi policeing of booze now. That event got outta control a few years consecutive, and the town had enough. The Big Razor is home to Patriots Place, a huge outdoor mall complete with bars. Those bars wont even serve anyone who has left a game or cocert event. I was denied service at Bar Louie after leaving an AC DC show that i arrived late for, and they had turned off the taps at the show when the headlining band took the stage. Another bullshiat policy. So i was sober and told at the bar they couldnt serve me because an event was going on. Foxboro f*cking sucks.

That sounds like a horrible combination. The only thing a good scotch should have mixed with it is possibly ice.

Nice try, but only when you're DRIVING. These folks weren't driving. They'd been drinking, and weren't impaired enough to be arrested unless they were driving, which they weren't.

Or as Ron White said: "I wasn't drunk in pub-lick. I was drunk in a BAR. Those guys made me drunk in pub-lick, arrest them!"

I will NEVER attend a music event at Gillette again. Pay over $100 to see Buffett, only to find the bars throughout the stadium shut down before the show even started? No margaritas in Margaritaville. Really?

Also, a big fark you to all the Kenney Chesney fans who can't have a good time without getting into 400 drunken brawls at every show. That's what prompted the asshole town board to nix the bars at Jimmy Buffett 2 weeks later.

And Mansfield is not going to be a mecca for parrot-heads much longer, I'm afraid. After the Gillette fiasco, JB has been doing shows at "Great Woods" (the lots open for the world's greatest tailgate party 6 hours before the show) but lately Fox Nightly Blues has been whipping up anti-good-time sentiment and the cops there are getting worse.

If you go, you HAVE to have a designated driver. Also, tailgate afterward as long as possible. Who wants to sit in traffic for an hour getting out of there. You might as well be having a good time instead.

Heh, O'Leary -- the cop probably lost his entire family to alcoholism so he's now on a one-man prohibition crusade. Sorry dude, the guys from Maine took a bus, you're going to have a lot of trouble proving that they were a danger to anyone.

.

That's my point. The law is really only intended for when you're driving, but it's being applied (with varying success) in other situations more and more often. Hence the article.

Or as Ron White said: "I wasn't drunk in pub-lick. I was drunk in a BAR. Those guys made me drunk in pub-lick, arrest them!"

I love Ron White, and I've been tossed out of a bar once or twice, too. It was a series of youthful indiscretions.

From the urban dictionary page for "foxboro"

3. Foxboro

A smallish town in Massachusetts, roughly halfway between Boston and Providence. Home of the New England Patriots football franchise. The bedrock of the town's population are families that fled there from various Irish neighborhoods ahead of the busing crisis and assorted other encounters with people duskier than themselves. Before WWII, the population was split between Yankee Protestants and Irish immigrants who came to work in factories. Recently, Foxboro has become a bedroom community for yuppies, who decided that the "urban" part of their description isn't any fun anymore once they realized that meant little Madison and Adin would have to go to school with Tamika and Juan. The things these population elements have in common is parochialism, small-mindedness and virulent racism, all of which are prominent in Foxboro's character.

Not to overgeneralize but every cop that has been, is, and will be in the force is a f*cktardian, Nazi-wannabe. They are useless, obstructionist and...most of all bullies - and 99% of those bullies are crooked as well.

Cops aren't heroes and deserve to be raked down in a volley of gunfire.

They're not your friends, either, so next time you're in an incident and the cop all chatty like says, "OK what happened here - tell your side of the story" just shut up unless you're 100% sure you are the victim. Then instead of arresting you the cops simply won't help you...ah, they might even arrest you.

Yikes, I feel for the plaintiff in this case. The guy organized a private bus from Maine, probably spent a lot of money to make it happen, and was .07 when he was arrested. He was probably held in some makeshift holding cell in the stadium where he could just barely make out what songs were being played. Concert over he gets shuttled to jail before being released with no charges.

Man would I be pissed.
