She's allegedly been doing this ten years and she got upset NOW?

This is typical kid stuff. Every single teacher puts up with this every single day.

What? Some kid called her "Stumpy."

"Alcohol related" means ANYONE involved in the accident... whether it was the driver or not.

Example: If a sober person ran over a pedestrian, and the pedestrian had ANY alcohol in their system (hospital checks for alcohol, etc before pumping you full of drugs) it is considered an "alcohol related" accident.

I hate to tell you, fellow Farkers and Farkettes, but drunk drivers on the road is a serious problem. Pretty cool she goes around telling kids not to fark up like I did.

Got a DUI in 2000 myself. The expense was bad enough but I was shocked, yes, SHOCKED, when I went through the mandatory safety classes.

Besides having to pay for them up front, we had one dude show up the first night hammered. He blew 0.32 as we are all breathalyzed when we come in. The scary part was that he was pretty much walking and talking normally. They tossed him out along with any late comers as it was like basic training mode there.

Then I had to attend a victims impact panel in the county courthouse where people who were involved in horrific DUI crashes tell their stories of injuries and dead family from drunk drivers. That night, they didn't breathalyze us but they should have. The asshat next to me smelled like a distillery.

Really, don't drink and drive. It's not worth the hassles and heartache one could cause.

My brother-in-law got a DUI, screwed up his delivery job, and he can't start his car without blowing into it. It's pretty faulty, and if it screws up, even if he is sober, automatic fine.

This is true. I work with crash data, and we have these problems all the time. It can get really confusing when you're reporting numbers like this. Actually, it usually depends on how the police officer filled out the crash report. Sometimes for alcohol related crashes, the officer doesn't even code who was drinking, so you can't separate out the pedestrians or bicyclists who were drinking when the driver was sober.

It's just a way to pad the numbers. If you hear "alcohol related", you assume it was a drunk driver.

Maybe the 90+% of teens who DON'T drink and driver are sick of hearing sob stories, condescending lectures, and/or simplistic moralizing from any idiot the school district can get to come and talk.

I'm an adult who doesn't drive drunk and I'm sick of hearing/seeing the messages and it's not nearly as condescending, trite, simplistic, or unrealistic as that aimed at teens.

When a significant number simply don't drink, and the vast majority of those who do drink do not drive drunk, you're bound to test the limits of how much insulting time wasting lectures they're willing to take.

Put yourself in their shoes. How many assemblies like this would all of us as adults put up with? How many times would your job have to bring you to a meeting/assembly of the kind schools do before you stopped paying attention or even engaged in a little taunting? Granted, adults would be a little more tactful, but anyone paying attention would realize that the vast majority are sick of this kind of meeting and showing it to the presenter.
 
2012-10-14 11:14:05 PM  
Well, as much as I applaud her intent, you have to consider your audience carefully. Dressing to accentuate your trauma before a crowd of adolescents seems foolhardy, regardless of your message. Furthermore: karma.

When I was in high school (late 70's) they bussed all of us kids to an auditorium to listen to David Toma talk about the dangers of drugs. A lot of catcalls and mocking--drugs were pretty popular back before all the Just Say No crap. But the guy didn't walk off in tears or anything. Guess kids are pretty much the same now

While about 80 percent of the 600 or so students in the auditorium wanted to hear her story, she estimated...

Heh. Yeah they did.
 
2012-10-14 11:20:31 PM  
So, according to the article, 10% of DUI deaths were South Carolinians under 21. Wolfram Alpha says that 23.7% of South Carolinians are 17 or younger. Clearly, we need to get more kids drunk to bring their numbers in line with expectations.

Easy, my child. Just two points.

1) Drug tolerance doesn't not make one sober.

2) If you can't stop doing something for a simple class (and lose over $200 to pay it again later), you probably have a real problem.

Because 99% of the population won't, and we know this by scientific investigation. If you want an exception to the rule when you break it, go argue it in court. Just because you think you're good to drive after downing a six pack in an hour, doesn't mean you are, and it doesn't mean you're not impaired.

And don't give me that crap about driving while texting, or driving while distracted. You should get pulled the fark over for doing that, too.

Aside from the fact that you're driving a three thousand pound missile at sixty to seventy miles an hour highway speed, and being a selfish asshole for endangering the lives of everyone around you, and the ones who will come save your ass when you wreck.

There was a bully at our high school who was a real farking jerk. I didn't get any hassle from him but I remember kids in the lower grades going home in tears because of how mean he was to them. The night before graduation he rolled his car going 160 kph and flipped it end over end. He was drunk. He lived but was basically a vegetable after that. They brought him back to school the next year to see everyone but he couldn't recognize faces or really even speak and didn't even have basic motor control. The kids he used to pick on then proceeded to throw food at him. Being a bully is one thing but I don't think I'd ever wish an outcome like that on someone, if it was karma he must have done some truly evil shiat to someone.

I was out of school for a month, having appendicitis. Apparently, while I was gone, the school had Miss California come in as a motivational speaker. I guess she, at one point, had her dress pulled up by a group of students that mobbed her. Everyone in the school had to write a letter of apology to her. I had to complain to the dean that I shouldn't have to write it, on account of the fact that I wasn't even there.

I made the mistake of driving a bit tipsy according to the law. My blood test came back as .081, legal limit is .080 where I live (2 months after I turned 21). For my community service I signed up to work for the Museum. At that time I didn't figure it would be to bad due to my interest in history.. Only to find out that the museum was asking volunteers to wrap bottles at a large local liqueur store. Good times. I get popped and have to work at a place that sales booze for community service.

Speaking as one who has had substance abuse issues in the past, I can't feel badly for this woman: she does make money telling stories about the stupid shiat she did. And some audiences are not going to be receptive.

To answer the obvious question, I did drive drunk but was never caught, probably because I lived in a city with an overburdened police department. I am of course grateful that nothing happened to another person becuase of my actions

Under TFA, there's a bunch of comments, several from students who were at the rally. According to them, the kids that were talking were straight-up ignoring the speaker, and just carrying on their own conversations. The laughter she heard? Not even directed at her.

They do admit that one kid said something that made her upset, and you find out in the comments that the speaker left the stage crying...they also admit to a bunch of them following her out to the parking lot to apologize on behalf of the stupid students who were rude to her by either their comments or not paying attention.

If all of what the students say is true, then this lady told the media after their apology, which makes her both a person who makes real bad decisions, and an attention whore. If what the students say isn't true & they never apologized...well, then, she'd still be a person who makes real bad decisions and is an attention whore.

hmmmm. well according to this (at least in 2010), 24.6% of students going to ashley ridge were african american. assuming that the mix stays basically the same year to year, i wonder if that was the est. 20% that was heckling her?

This is typical kid stuff. Every single teacher puts up with this every single day.


Well, we do something about it every single day. As a teacher, I can tell you that those kids would have been out of there and in ISS (in-school suspension) pretty damn fast inio our school. Oh, and no homecoming for you.

My question is: where the hell were the faculty and administration and why didn't they step in?

This sort of entitled behavior is a reflection of what is (and is not) going on at home.

Eugoogoolizer: There was a bully at our high school who was a real farking jerk. I didn't get any hassle from him but I remember kids in the lower grades going home in tears because of how mean he was to them. The night before graduation he rolled his car going 160 kph and flipped it end over end. He was drunk. He lived but was basically a vegetable after that. They brought him back to school the next year to see everyone but he couldn't recognize faces or really even speak and didn't even have basic motor control. The kids he used to pick on then proceeded to throw food at him. Being a bully is one thing but I don't think I'd ever wish an outcome like that on someone, if it was karma he must have done some truly evil shiat to someone.


The sad thing is he probably came for a horribly abusive home - most bullies do. They learn that behavior from the people they count on to show them how to act.

Never had a DUI myself but I had a roommate get one. Dumbest. Thing. Evar. There were 6 great bars within walking distance of our house. "I was on my way home from work and stopped for a couple beers. I didn't think I was that drunk." Drive home, park, and walk 4 blocks to the damn bar. There was absolutely no reason to stop at the bar on the way home. And no reason to drive home after making that first mistake. Walk back in the morning to get the car. All these years later, I still don't understand it.

We had a group of anti-drug motivational speakers at my high school. They did their little act about how drugs and alcohol are bad. Most of the students in the auditorium were bored and restless. Eventually, they had to stop and plea with the students for their attention, which prompted the school stoner to scream some nasty remarks their way (he was quickly escorted out).

I really wanted to get up and leave, but for a different reason. I knew what drug use and alcoholism could do and didn't need the reminder from people who failed to understand the dangers from the beginning. I mean, I had been bombarded with anti-drug and anti-drink campaigns from school, television and even PSAs in arcade games since I was in elementary. I'm sure these kids had as well.

Some kids do whatever they want, consequences be damned. I'm sure the kids who most needed the lesson were the ones ignoring it the most. But some kids doing a song and dance routine at an assembly aren't going to change the minds of the little rebels. Losing some body parts, spending some time in prison or injuring/killing somebody else will. They have to be the ones giving the lesson behind the podium before they learn. So why am I stuck sitting on these uncomfortable as fark bleachers again?

Unless my roommate was drunk at work, that doesn't explain the initial decision to stop on the way home rather than drive home then walk 4 blocks.

The school isn't paying her. But in any event there is no reason for her to continue if she is being heckled. You don't have to put up with disrespect - even if you are being paid to be there.

2012-10-15 01:01:01 AM  
When I was in elementary school, there was a woman who came to speak to us about her son who died from drugs. My memory of the speech is in parts hazy, but I remember parts of it, and it really creeped me out. I remember we sat on the floor of the cafeteria and she stood at the front. Her story, as I recall, was that she left her son with a babysitter who for years, without her knowing, gave drugs to her son. Her son became an addict, and I remember her saying something about how she found him not moving and tried to get him to walk around (like they do in the movies).

She kept panning around the room and saying she could see it in our eyes. That she knew which ones of us were on drugs. That's the part that freaked me out. I was probably in second grade or so. After moving away from that town, I learned that the town was meth-infested. But I assume that was more adults than elementary school students.

When I went to college, there were so many seminars freshmen had to sit through. The one that bothered me the most was with several young women yelling at the students (me) about how they had been raped and how evil men were. It bothered me that it was only compulsory for men to attend the session. One guy fell asleep during the seminar and got a verbal thrashing.

I think the problem in general with these seminars is that you have one person who (bravely) admits he or she has either been assaulted or was an assaulter. But because he or she talks about it, there is this weird thing where that person is instantly absolved in the case of an assaulter or the audience is suddenly the assaulter in the case of the assaulted. I kind of think it antagonizes the audience a bit. "I did this bad thing but that doesn't matter because if you did what I did you are SCUM." Or, "Look what happened to me, it's because of SCUM like you."

It's basically scared straight for people who haven't proven they need to be scared straight. For example, I have absolutely no interest in having sex with a woman, consensual or otherwise. And I am terrified of drugs. And driving for that matter. I avoid both whenever possible.
 
2012-10-15 01:02:22 AM  
I remember the mandatory assemblies in school. the thing is myself along with several of my friends came from a time and area of the country where it was church every Sunday morning night and Wednesday evening. also we got paddled at school as well as getting a belt on our asses at home. the majority of us didn't get into trouble like this but because a few students got caught drinking and smoking weed, presumably everyone of us were on a path to nowhere. same thing with the sex is a bad thing assemblies. (yes we had those too) you can get aids from this this and this but not this. they even took us to the local prison for a "scared straight" type of program I can't recall but those of us who went none of us were above average troublemakers. funny thing is, the school didn't send home any kind of notes even saying "hey we are taking your kids here" let alone getting permission. even funnier, the prison broke out into a riot a week later. Parents wanted the principal's head on a chopping block for that one.

speaking of the classes, in Oklahoma, offenders have to go through ADSAC classes, regardless of whether it was alcohol or drugs, even if a vehicle was involved or not. Case in point: my 21 year old son who just happened to be 18 when this crap happened, got two tickets one for possession of marijuana and one for possession of paraphernalia. It was a homemade pipe and residue in the pipe. Firstly, it was a small hick town in Southeastern Oklahoma. Secondly it wasn't really even residue just burnt up ash in the bottom of the pipe which was an apple core.
My son got mad because we couldn't afford an attorney to get it thrown out (which after speaking to several in Oklahoma City we found out that if we had the $$ he would have walked) but he plead guilty and was fined $1000. He had just gotten his driver's license and under Oklahoma law, it was automatically suspended. He paid the fines and part of the sentence was to attend ADSAC classes to get his license back. The asshole in Durant after hearing his story and listening to mine and his stepmother explain how he knew he was in the wrong and had taken two drug tests both negative says, "well it appears you have a substance abuse problem and I think you need to take 24 hours of classes" (translated: we want your money)

the morale of the story (and I told my kid this) unless you get caught redhanded with the pipe to your lips and the actual weed in your possession, deny, deny deny. see the cops showed up to the house when nobody was there except for his 17 year old girlfriend (I ain't no lawyer but I believe she didn't have authority to grant police access to the house) they seen the pipe from the door and asked for permission to search and she said yes. he, along with her mother and the mother's boyfriend show up and even though my son said it was his, all three get tickets. go figure. I told him never ever admit to anything unless you are caught in the act and then if it's bad enough, say nothing and ask for a lawyer.

/yet another reason I wish that I had had him come live with us after my divorce from his mom was finalized

2012-10-15 01:32:51 AM  

PallMall: bow: PallMall: aimtastic: FTFA: "State DUI accident records show South
Carolina teenagers could greatly benefit
from her warnings. In 2010, state and local
law enforcement responded to 357 alcohol-
impaired driving fatalities; at least 38 of
them involved drivers, passengers or
pedestrians who were under 21."

What the fark do passengers and pedestrians under 21 have to do with underage drinking and driving? Way to pad those numbers.

"Alcohol related" means ANYONE involved in the accident... whether it was the driver or not.

Example: If a sober person ran over a pedestrian, and the pedestrian had ANY alcohol in their system (hospital checks for alcohol, etc before pumping you full of drugs) it is considered an "alcohol related" accident.

This is true. I work with crash data, and we have these problems all the time. It can get really confusing when you're reporting numbers like this. Actually, it usually depends on how the police officer filled out the crash report. Sometimes for alcohol related crashes, the officer doesn't even code who was drinking, so you can't separate out the pedestrians or bicyclists who were drinking when the driver was sober.

It's just a way to pad the numbers. If you hear "alcohol related", you assume it was a drunk driver.


travisl: So, according to the article, 10% of DUI deaths were South Carolinians under 21. Wolfram Alpha says that 23.7% of South Carolinians are 17 or younger. Clearly, we need to get more kids drunk to bring their numbers in line with expectations.


I love how statistically jaded Fark is. If middle aged news writers were to read our threads their heads would explode.

The clear solution to underage drinking and driving would be lock-ins. Everyone will be under 18, drinking just crap beer, and can't get out 'til daylight and sobriety. A few hangovers like that and maybe they'll learn what it's like to be drunk rather than getting shiatfaced with a 20 mile drive home.

Chances are that most of them have no behavior to change. The ones that don't drink and the ones that don't drive drunk have nothing to change. That eliminates a good 95% of the student body. Now, the chances that the content is actually relevant and perhaps capable of reaching that 5% is slim to none. Chances are the entire student body gets to sit through a moralizing, condescending, deceptive, and/or overly simplistic lecture and we wonder why some act out.

I doubt it. Teenagers are immortal.

You give me 100 young men 13-17 for paintball. You camp a sizable number of marines out there in the woods. I'll tell them they have a 1/4 chance of survival, but here's the marines' camp on the map.

They brought Toma to my high school in the 1980s. We weren't rude, but we weren't exactly paying attention, either.

The worst thing I was forced to attend was sensitivity training during undergrad. I was in a campus group, and some people got their undies in a knot over what a small group of people were doing. I wasn't one of them, but was forced to attend anyway.

I started asking them why I was being punished for something I didn't do. They insisted that it wasn't a punishment. I then asked why it was mandatory for someone who wasn't responsible.

That ended up derailing the entire meeting. Others chipped in and we had them on the defensive for the next three hours. They only presented about 10% of what they wanted to because we kept questioning them.

One of the presenters got a little weepy at the end because "no progress" had been made.

Oh, my favorite part was when they tried to segregate everyone by race to point out various sensitive things. One guy who had a white mother and a black father kept switching back and forth between the white and black groupings, pretending to be serious. Hysterical and the presenters had no idea how to handle it.

I suppose thats why the young get sent to combat. That and good knees.

Your scenario reminds me of an afternoon of paintball in the woods that a coworker and myself organized in the mid/late eighties.

Me and my teenaged buddies vs. him and his late 30s early 40s buds (about half who had been in combat themselves).

It was pretty much a turkey shoot and us young-uns scurried home with our tails between our legs.

I'm an adult who doesn't drive drunk and I'm sick of hearing/seeing the messages and it's not nearly as condescending, trite, simplistic, or unrealistic as that aimed at teens.

When a significant number simply don't drink, and the vast majority of those who do drink do not drive drunk, you're bound to test the limits of how much insulting time wasting lectures they're willing to take.

Put yourself in their shoes. How many assemblies like this would all of us as adults put up with? How many times would your job have to bring you to a meeting/assembly of the kind schools do before you stopped paying attention or even engaged in a little taunting? Granted, adults would be a little more tactful, but anyone paying attention would realize that the vast majority are sick of this kind of meeting and showing it to the presenter.


You're right. I've worked in this business, and it is a business. Basically, schools budget money or get grants for bullying, substance abuse, etc., prevention, and then the a-hole idiot administrators don't know what to do with it, so they find some profiteering motivational speakers or educational "not-for-profit" companies to come in and bore their kids to deat, most often in large "assembly" programs. In my opinion the most valuable thing that the kids get out of it is that they learn to behave, sit still, and shut their mouths when they are in a large group of people. At least it gets the kids out of math class.

TomD9938: doglover: You give me 100 young men 13-17 for paintball. You camp a sizable number of marines out there in the woods. I'll tell them they have a 1/4 chance of survival, but here's the marines' camp on the map. Every single one of those boys will know he's the 1/4. None of them will get a shot off before a marine painball hits 'em in the chest.

I suppose thats why the young get sent to combat. That and good knees.

Your scenario reminds me of an afternoon of paintball in the woods that a coworker and myself organized in the mid/late eighties.

Me and my teenaged buddies vs. him and his late 30s early 40s buds (about half who had been in combat themselves).

It was pretty much a turkey shoot and us young-uns scurried home with our tails between our legs.


That sounds awesome.

But yeah, the biggest reason we send young boys instead of older men into combat, aside from health issues, is because they're easy to amp up. There's old soldiers and bold soldiers.

I got an "OUIL" in the late 90's in Michigan. I was 19, it was about 4:00am and foggy as I have ever seen, my vehicle was parked, my blood alcohol level was 0.02 (thats a DUI for anybody under 21) and some stupid fat biatch barreled into it at around 50 mph and farked up her knees, as well as totaling both of our vehicles. She sued my parents for $60,000. SO fark ALL OF YOU MADD MOTHERfarkERS, DIAF!!!! I'm glad your families died because you pieces of shiat deserve it .

pedrop357: untaken_name: Hey, you know what always works when d-bag kids are laughing at something they shouldn't be laughing at? Telling them it's not funny.

Instead of soberly reflecting on their actions, and calmly and rationally changing their behavior, they're just going to laugh more. Is that mature? Of course not. Neither are children.

Chances are that most of them have no behavior to change. The ones that don't drink and the ones that don't drive drunk have nothing to change. That eliminates a good 95% of the student body. Now, the chances that the content is actually relevant and perhaps capable of reaching that 5% is slim to none. Chances are the entire student body gets to sit through a moralizing, condescending, deceptive, and/or overly simplistic lecture and we wonder why some act out.


And they'll claim a 95% success rate.

RedPhoenix122: AirForceVet: I hate to tell you, fellow Farkers and Farkettes, but drunk drivers on the road is a serious problem. Pretty cool she goes around telling kids not to fark up like I did.

Got a DUI in 2000 myself. The expense was bad enough but I was shocked, yes, SHOCKED, when I went through the mandatory safety classes.

Besides having to pay for them up front, we had one dude show up the first night hammered. He blew 0.32 as we are all breathalyzed when we come in. The scary part was that he was pretty much walking and talking normally. They tossed him out along with any late comers as it was like basic training mode there.

Then I had to attend a victims impact panel in the county courthouse where people who were involved in horrific DUI crashes tell their stories of injuries and dead family from drunk drivers. That night, they didn't breathalyze us but they should have. The asshat next to me smelled like a distillery.

Really, don't drink and drive. It's not worth the hassles and heartache one could cause.

My brother-in-law got a DUI, screwed up his delivery job, and he can't start his car without blowing into it. It's pretty faulty, and if it screws up, even if he is sober, automatic fine.


Those things can blow over if you use an inhaled medication.

So you parked in the middle of the highway on a foggy night, and then blamed the woman who hit you while having the audacity to DRIVE ON THE ROAD.

Classic alcoholic logic. "Sure I was drinking, Sure I may have had... 30 to many, but that's only 1 case! I can drink like.... 90 beers before I'm drunk. That woman that hit me when passed out in the road was such an asshole. Trying to drive where I had passed the fark out"

His BAC was .02 for cripes sakes. Unless you think he's lying about that, you're full or shiat.

/DUIs for lower BACs for underage drivers are complete bullshiat. A 22 year old cant drive any better with a BAC of .06 than a 20 year old can.

LincolnLogolas: aevert: When I was in fifth grade we had some aerobic dance instructor come in and teach us all a bunch of dances. One thing she taught us was the Macarena. Right at the peak of the Macarena craze. After she gets through all the steps we stared booing her, but at least she had the composure to remain on stage.

Later we all had to write her an apology note.

I was out of school for a month, having appendicitis. Apparently, while I was gone, the school had Miss California come in as a motivational speaker. I guess she, at one point, had her dress pulled up by a group of students that mobbed her. Everyone in the school had to write a letter of apology to her. I had to complain to the dean that I shouldn't have to write it, on account of the fact that I wasn't even there.

Tl;Dr cool story bro

My mother was killed by a drunk driver back when I was just 16 years old. He was so drunk he made a 13 year old girl drive him to get more beer; on the way to the store, the girl ran off the road (it was unpaved and rough, with only a 1-2' shoulder). She panicked and hit the gas and the car powered out of the ditch and right into my mom's car. The drunk ran from the scene with the girl, leaving my mom there. I never found out who the drunk was, or the girl for that matter; I assume he was charged with something but I don't even know if that happened to him.

quickdraw: titwrench: quickdraw: titwrench: She is supposedly a professional speaker and she got rattled by a high school kid? She needs a new job.

She didn't cry and she wasn't rattled she just refused to continue in the face of blatant disrespect. More people should do that imo.

If she walked off the stage before she was finished she was rattled and not being professional. It's fine if she doesn't want to waste any more of her time, that's her choice but she sure as hell better not expect to get paid.

The school isn't paying her. But in any event there is no reason for her to continue if she is being heckled. You don't have to put up with disrespect - even if you are being paid to be there. Novel concept for some of you I guess. But trolls are a pain in the ass and often just not worth the hassle of being around.


Does a prostitute have to take disrespect? Because I am having a really hardtime distinguishing between this person who made a bad choice, and then decided to make money from that bad choice, and a prostitute.

WOW. Been out of high school for 37 years, and nothing has changed. No one has learned anything. People still drive drunk and kill people and kids are still undisciplined assholes. No one will take responsibility to bring them up right so they have no personal responsibility ingrained in them. So they drink and drive. It's the circle of death.
No sense changing things now, what with how that's working out for our economy and all.
Seems like only yesterday, but it's been almost 40 years.
Back then, when a kid wrecked their car, they parked the bloody scrap heap on the lawn of the school for an entire week, or month. A momument to "Watch your asses, you snot nosed shaits. This can and will happen to you, if you don't"
Not today's kids, nope, they bubble wrap them all the way to combat. Then, they are on their own. Nice parenting. Nice citizenship in the nation, folks. Just keep pumping those crotch trophies out and bein' proud. You made a babby miracle, and that makes you a god.

For us, we had the whole DARE program in elementary school, and in high school it was all about abstinence. We had to have had 3 or 4 'rallies' in one school year alone, as if we didn't get the message last time.

And is it me, or do a lot of the presenters for anti-drugs/sex/drinking/whatever come off as downright creepy? Not just average creepy, but I remember one who struck me as tea-party-of-corpses-in-the-basement creepy.

At my high school, the only motivational speaker we ever had was Montel Williams, giving a speech called, "Mountain, Get Out of My Way!" This was in 1990 or 91, not sure if he was "famous" yet then. He spent most of the time chanting the title of the speech and calling the popular minority students down to answer basic math questions, for which he would give them cash.

My little brother got a DUI right before he turned 21. He didn't have to take classes, but he lost his license for a while and had to have a breathalizer device (I forget what they are called) installed in his car. At his expense. Monthly. On top of that, he was unemployed and assumed that he had received a felony, which he was diligently adding to employment applications...

I remember Toma, he came to my school in 1984. He had half the kids in tears, hugging eachother, and the other half of us chanting "To-ma, To-ma, To-ma!" The dude was like a rock star at Thurston Middle School in Laguna Beach.

Automatic fine? Really? I'd say that whatever state you're in, unless it's some redneck shiathole (and you know which states I'm talking about) where they'd rather execute you but then the governor would have to end up pardoning himself, your BiL might have the makings of a fine lawsuit.

I got a DUI not too long ago, and had the BAIID (blood-alcohol ignition interlock device) installed in my car. I took my last drink the day before it went in, and haven't had one since, but every now and then I'd be driving, having already blown clean when I started up the car, and get the little beep telling me to blow while I was driving... and I'd fail, sometimes with it showing me over the legal limit. So, I'd wait a minute or two, and retest, and come up clean, of course, but then after I'd had the data downloaded from the BAIID and sent to the state office, I'd get a roboletter back from them demanding an explanation, and I'd write the same letter back to them that I'd already written before, pointing out that, according to their own data, I'd blown clean both when I'd started the car and a minute or two later, making it pretty much impossible that I'd been drinking (unless I'd had a passenger blow for me, in which case why wouldn't I have had them blow for all the tests?). And a few days later, I'd get a letter back from them saying that they accepted my explanation.

Now, think about that for a bit. They have a device that is supposed to be the equivalent of what the cops use, and yet they accept at face value my explanation that it recorded someone who was stone cold sober as being drunk as a skunk. Maybe none of them are that reliable, eh? Maybe it's just another scam that makes money for the state and the approved vendors who are probably generous contributors to certain political campaigns, ya think? When I was finally sentenced, I was given the choice of 240 hours of community service and a year with the ankle bracelet, or a month of work release. I've already experienced the unreliability of the BAIID, and I'm supposed to pay thousands of dollars for something that (by some of the posts I've seen about it here and there) isn't any more reliable, and that could mistakenly fail me and possibly send me to jail 11 months in? Or it's just like the BAIID where they'll take any excuse, in which case what's the reason for having it at all, aside from the SCRAM company making tall coin? I took work release, which was not that bad; the worst part about it was the shiatty jail food.

And keep in mind that I accept that I drank and drove (not by any means universal among my fellow offenders), and I'm better off not drinking, and don't want drunk drivers on the road any more than anyone else. But the so-called "treatment" options are mostly bullshiat. The court makes money, the monitoring devices companies make money, your attorney makes a lot of money for very little work (unless you're lucky and you get someone who is willing to work for it; I didn't), the counselors who are approved for your mandatory counseling make a lot of money. The only thing that will keep you from reoffending is your deciding that it's not worth risking getting the escalating punishments and fines for subsequent offenses for your beers or your Singapore Slings or whatever; regardless, everyone else gets paid.

On a lighter note, google Long Jeanne Silver sometime [very NSFW]. There's someone who used her leg amputation to make a lot of people very happy, particularly some of her female co-stars, if you catch my drift.
