Godscrack: CruiserTwelve: What's the whole point of your argument?

It's not an argument. I made a comment earlier and you all called me out on it.

I used to work close to police years ago. I remember thinking, man, these (drunk) people are really trying to do the right thing. And now you have these cops coming around to get in their face at a vulnerable time. No harm done. No laws broken. I thought it was farking evil personally.

I'm just saying I've seen it happen. Who's to say it doesn't happen all the time.

I don't really care if you or anyone believes it.


The fact that it would be an insane and inefficient use of resources, that it would be logistically impossible to maintain, the fact that it would defeat the purpose 'hey, let's focus on the guys who are demonstrably NOT breaking the law'.

I wasn't there, I don't know what you saw. But with the critical thinking you have demontsrated here, I doubt that what you saw was what you think you saw. And then to surmise from that that there is some sort of police DUI watch list, hoo boy. Again, did this ever make any sense to you at any point in time?

'Hey, Joe, let's go compile a list of people who drink. Even better, let's compile a list of guys who drink and don't drive afterwards. And here is the best part, all we have to do is monitor cabbies radio, go get to the bar before the cabbie does, find the guy who calledfor a cab, then pay for a free tow of his car. This plan, I tell you, it's full proof'

'What do we do once we get the name and address of the guy who did not break the law...well, I can't think of everything can I?'

Hey cops are human. They have emotional problems like everyone else. It's not so unusual they find pleasure in humiliating someone at a vulnerable time just to validate their positions of authority.

Many people think cops are angels working for God. So cops have to live with this. And sometimes, they really believe this. How often do you hear police telling people "Don't lie to me!" "If you're lying, I'll take you to jail!" "How dare you lie to me!".

If you met an angel, would you lie to him?

Being an angel is a big responsibility. Being drunk is a sin. Sinners must be punished.

Put them in jail and force them into poverty.

OK, so now you have changed from the idea that cops systematically identify people who drink to maintain a watchlist for the purpose of generating revenue through DUI tickets, to the idea that an isolated cop decided to flaunt his authority and picked a drunk as his target. The former is patently ridiculous, the latter is regrettable but does happen, as cops are, as you say, human.

If you persist in publicly stating your opinion that it is cost effective or even possible for cops to create a list of potential drinkers for the purpose of proactively monitoring them against the possibility that they might commit a DUI, and that the criteria for making this list is actively showing that you avoid DUI by calling a cab, be prepared for everyone with half a brain to realize that you are an idiot with zero ability to critically think or draw logical conclusions. If that doesn't bother you, then you need to examine why you think it is ok that everyone else thinks you are an idiot. It could mean that you are a genius and no one understands you, or it could mean that you are an idiot. Hint: you are not a genius.

From you.

Police can hear all the cab dispatches anyway.

Then you're put on a watch list for being a drunk. Police keep tabs on you anytime they see you. Not a 'safe' as it looks.

Good luck citizen.

And I wont say a word about these lists.

God bless America.

I always thought the "cruiser" part of your handle was referring to something completely different.
