MaudlinMutantMollusk: Could be worse/could have picked some brain-dead backwoods hick governor that quit half-way through their first term
fusillade762: She said she's taking this case to trial because she believes her arrest and prosecution are retaliatory.Retaliation for what?
Catlenfell: Not to defend her, but Rosemount is notorious for its police traps. Two busy roads runs through the town and onFriday and Saturday nights they park police at the city limits and pull over everyone.
ongbok: Can she be convicted of DWI in Minnesota when they couldn't get a blood sample or breath test from her because she refused?
NiteGuy: has alcohol on her breath
Crotchrocket Slim: Ah my homestate's GOP, continuing to fail. These are the same dumbasses who got kicked out of their headquarters for "forgetting" to pay rent. Time to search the thread and see if anyone else mentioned this first...

Time to search the thread and see if anyone else mentioned this first...Don't forget they bankrupted themselves for a dubious recount.
syrynxx: NiteGuy: has alcohol on her breathYou know what three things any police officer can say without fear of retaliation that will get you arrested for DUI?1) Odor of alcohol detected2) Slurred speech3) Relied on vehicle for support to exit vehicleThey do not need a shred of evidence to arrest you for DUI as long as they make those claims to the judge in court. Don't drink and drive, but also -Don't roll down your window more than an inchDon't talk; hand the officer a card with your attorney's phone numberDon't exit the vehicle unless the officer arrests you
IgG4: ongbok: Can she be convicted of DWI in Minnesota when they couldn't get a blood sample or breath test from her because she refused?in MN they have implied consent. So by having a drivers license you automatically give consent to any sobriety checks that law enforcement may impose upon you at any time. You have the right to refuse, but the repercussions for refusal are equivalent or worse than a conviction for DWI. Anyone who refuses a test is basically admitting guilt. Which is why her behavior is so idiotic.
Uchiha_Cycliste: Maybe Minnesota, like Wisconsin is a big fan of drinking and the DUI doesn't bug them. In fact it probably increases his "I'm a Minnesotan" street cred.
The Jami Turman Fan Club: Got pulled over 14 times in one year because I was driving home at 2:00AM on a Saturday morning (going from St. Paul to Rochester). Because the law had been changed so they couldn't do random stops, they had to think of something. Swerving, or using the high beams, or 1 mph above the speed limit, or they couldn't see my license plate...had to think of something. 8 warnings, no tickets. Most of them took less than 10 minutes. It was obvious that I wasn't drunk, and that's all they cared about.Minnesota cares a lot about drunk drivers, whether it's a moral thing or it's that the police department gets to keep the car, I don't know. But I don't think they'd make something like this up.
Herb Utsmelz: MacDonald, 52, who practices family law, maintains that she was not drinking the night she was pulled over by Rosemount police and is taking the case to trial.Party of personal responsibility, etc.
cretinbob: If this coont hadn't been drinking, what's the problem?
