Drunk driving is a bad thing. I feel bad for anyone who has lost a loved one to a drunk driver. But I can not tolerate the type of bedwetter hysteria that allows this sort of stupidity to happen:
Miami Dolphins receiver Chris Chambers will plead not guilty to driving while impaired, his lawyer said Wednesday.
George Laughrun said Chambers will fight the charge stemming from his arrest July 14, when he was pulled over several miles south of downtown Charlotte.
Chambers was also charged with reckless driving and speeding. A hearing on the case scheduled for Wednesday was postponed until Sept. 26.
Laughrun said Chambers was charged with DWI despite a blood-alcohol level of .06, below the legal limit of .08. Under stricter drunken-driving laws in North Carolina, Chambers could still be convicted.
Why even have a limit? Why not make it so that if you watch a beer commercial 5 hours before driving, we can put you in jail. Wouldn’t we be better off spending our resources to catch real criminals who are a real threat. Like locking this guy up for 25 years for…. gambling?
