fark those random breathalyzers.

They give them to ALL people on house arrest, regardless of the nature of the charge or the status of conviction or even the age of the accused. In short, it's just a way to make MORE criminals out of the citizens.

They have these anklets with built in alcohol sensing equipment. Andy Dick had one. They're what you would use if you were serious about all this. Forcing underage people to do random breathalyzers in their own home based on a robot voice calling you up? Aw hell naw! That is some straight up 1984 style big brother bullshiat. I'm against it as a rule.

FTFA:

Colleen Cudney, 22, who was on probation for a DUI from 2012 thought she had police fooled the day after Saint Patrick's day when she was called in for a random breathalyzer test and passed even though she'd been drinking the night before.

She was underage when she started probation?

Cudney is due in court on April 1st for a probation hearing. She could be sentenced to 93 days in jail. Ironically enough, Cudney's probation was set to end soon.

How ironical!

In my job I sometimes work with probation officers. I showed up to work on some computers at the office and noticed two cops hiding behind a corner. I pretended they weren't there while I watched a guy come in for his weekly meeting. His PO met him outside his office and handed him a screencap of his Facebook (or whatever it was that year) page showing said guy holding a bong and doing the "smoke up the nose" bit. His PO asked him if it was even worth bothering with the piss test as the two cops came out and cuffed the guy.

LEO's love social media sites. People are always bragging about their illegal exploits and probation/parole violations. And they never seem to understand that the police don't need a warrant, and that they will keep tabs on your asses.

I was on house arrest for a DUI two years ago and unfortunately they didn't have an ankle bracelet available.  I had to do a random phone voice analyzer that would call multiple times a day.  When I went in to the probation office I had to call in to this system and repeat the numbers that were told to me.  Throughout the day a robot would call and have to you repeat 3 sets of numbers.  Early in the morning, middle of the day, late at night, didn't matter, supposed to be totally random.  Since I had so much time on my hands I decided to write down the times and see if I could see if there was any rhyme or reason to the system.  I figured out it was would happen in sets of 3 that were 5 minutes apart every 2, 4, or 7 hours from the last call.  ie 405 410 415 then 1105 1110 1115.  It was the worst ever.  I know I missed I few during the middle of the night some nights but no cops ever showed up to check fortunately.  They said it was supposed to detect alcohol by making sure you're not slurring your numbers but when you call at 3 in the morning it's hard not to sound like you don't have bells palsy.  Don't see how it could be accurate.

Apparently it's a terrible imposition on everyone to have laws that require sober driving, and nothing short of totalitarianism to have mechanisms in place to ensure that irresponsible people will obey the terms of their probation (i.e. not driving drunk) rather than just letting them drive about willy-nilly on the roads until they kill someone.

I'm not sure I understand that; but then again, I've been accused of being either a fascist cop-lover or too practical, pick one.

A) Most modern in-home breath testers from court mandates take a snapshot of whomever blows. If someone else blows, it's an instant failure and go back to prison.

B) These devices cost monthly, anywhere from 50-200$, and they're court forced, you have no option to say 'I cannot pay for that'. If you do, you go to jail and still have to pay the fees.

C) These devices, when installed, cannot be removed except with explicit court approval, even if they legally never should have been (specific to cars).

D) They are basically just an extension of court mandates that you stay clean and sober during the terms of your probation; aside from the cost, I don't have a problem. You can always reject the terms the court sets for your probation and go to jail.

E) What I do have a problem with is the for-profit nature of all these devices. They're being subscribed to in record numbers at 'no cost' to the city, but record profit for the companies making them and selling the services.

What if her birthday is April 2 1991 and she got her DUI the day after her 21st birthday? Then she'd have been 21 when this happened and 22 now, and as the article says, her probation would end in a couple weeks.

NSA doesn't need to spy on our shiat.  People just brag about it on FB.

Think about it, Facebookers, how many games and activities do you see on FB that ultimately lead to you giving up  your personal info, your friends' personal info, pictures of you, pictures of your friends, "fun facts" about you, "fun facts" about your friends, etc.?
 
2014-03-31 07:57:40 AM  
When I read about this sort of thing, I wonder how many "Friends" she had on her Facebook that she actually knew... I can easily see some cop adding them as a friend just for this reason, but still...

And I'm curious if the cop that found this was surfing Facebook while on the clock?

Plus, from some of the people I knew who have had to wear them, the ankle bracelets that auto detect your BAC can be fooled by a piece of baloney shoved in there between it and your leg, from what I hear... I'm not saying you should try it, but if you do, by all means brag about it on Facebook so you can be the next story we read about here...
