Happy New Year / Drunks

Cops use taser in drunk driving arrest:

Scott's Tip Of The Day: I'm back. Did you miss me? I had a fun vacation and now it's back to work. Back to the grind. Back in the saddle again. Oh well. Only another 300 something days until next Christmas, right?

Did you drink a lot on New Years? Do you drink a lot all the time? Has it become a problem? Police in Essex UK are considering establishing a "Wet Zone" for problematic drunks so they don't bother the rest of the population. You can read about it here. This seems like an ill-advised plan. You know what's a better way to take care of problematic drunks? Fines. Rehab. Jail. Stun gunning them. Public floggings. Broadcasting these people's indiscretions on COPS. Rewarding drunks for their bad behavior won't fix any problems

When the politicians and celebrities are the ones who seem to be driving while intoxicated I'd have to say nothing will happen. Is it any wonder? Since alcohol is legal, it's advertised everywhere and considered a must when dining or entertaining. Sad!
