Random Post On Prosecutor's Forum

Link. I'm sure he'll get lots of sympathy from the prosecutors. And if you ever wonder why our jails are crowded, this might be an example. Some counties just give him the "yeah, sure kid" attitude and then lock him up.

And some interlock companies have an uncomfortably close relationship with government. Did you know that in Wise County when an Interlock is ordered (by JPs) as a condition of bond (for someone arrested for DWI-2nd or greater) that a private interlock company's name and address is already pre-printed at the bottom of the order?

Just another good reason for me to continue my hatred towards the police and our justice system.

i have no doubt that mouthwash is the cause of most of our social problems today, barron. i wish the democratic party would get on the mouthwash bashing program before it is too late.
especially before it ruins alot more lives.

this country sucks soooo bad. to even think of punishing a poor innocent kid for DWI is enough to wour anyone's stomach. how dare our justice system hold anyone responsible. how dare it expect a common citizen to uphold the laws. what an injustice to this poor soul . i cant imagine how many countless otheres are also wronged.

ps: barry , you are such a freakin idiot it hurts.

If there's even the slightest chance that using mouthwash is going to cause problems, wouldn't common sense tell you to just not use mouthwash? I'm not saying that this guy deserves to go to jail, but c'mon. Use your head.

Barry, that comment is 3 years old, and your defense minded true believer bias is showing again. Do you seriously have clients getting filed on for 1 interlock failure/lock out or are you just whinning to the masses?

Cue the chorus of: "He shouldn't have gotten intoxicated and arrested in the first place, then he wouldn't have this problem."

You should just get drunk at home and beat your wife, like a good bootstrapper.

I got a dui and had to have the interlock. Yes,I had a funny feeling when i saw that companies logo on the forms they gave me. I knew I was in for it somehow. No,I wasn't wrong.
Every time you turn around there is someone with a handout to take money from you. I mean 'after' the fact if you will. Months go by and you're trying to put things behind you and then,"Dude,you owe us some money" "I don't have much." "You're going to jail" Uh,isn't that the opposite of what you are trying to achieve in this situation? If this was ANY other subject people would be up in arms over how dirty politically dui enforcement is especially in Texas. Allowing MADD to dictate policy and make laws(you read it right)is like having the NRA run the BATF.
Oh,and I guess the interlock device might be ok for a drinker which I'm not(and no I hadn't been when I got the dui).

I would be willing to bet that if you looked into the interlock companies that have the luxury of being preprinted (or all interlock companies, for that matter)you will find that they are all owned by LAWYERS.

The ultimate business is one whose consumers are forced to consume as dictated by lawyers and courts and then when they comply with the mandate they find themselves with limited options which all funnel even more money back into the pockets of the very ones who sent them there.

Cancer, Parasites, lawyers

Why wasn't Kenny Stabler ordered to have an interlock on his car?

lovelit said...

The interlock is a great device, and I'm glad it's out there...tic tacs, gum, certs...all do the same job, guy. As for the seemingly relentless coughing up of money and the stigma that comes along with a DUI...what better deterrent is there, since possibly killing another person doesn't seem to do it. I'm not perfect by any means, but DUI isn't worth the few hours of feeling happy.

More than likely our JPs (Justice of the Peace) started placing the name at the bottom of the bond page so that the accused would get the interlock rather than to feed business to a particular company.

I had no idea you were such a Hater! I just wonder who you would call if your house was burglarized, or your car was stolen, or something even worse. I hope the officer who responds doesn't realize how much you "Hate" him, just for doing his job..

I failed at Sopnic when drinking a lime slush, and another time 5 hours after having one drink. Waited another three hours and still failed. Monosodium glutamate, breath mints... will also cause a false positive.

RPM said...

If all the haters were really concerned about DWI's they would demand every car sold have a breathalyzer.

Ta Da! No more DWI's. Problem solved.

your right rpm, the last thing they want is for dwi to stop. an entire industry has been built on it. from madd to barry green, they all depend on it, and to stop it would mean they had to get real work. just like jesse jackson depends on pissed off blacks they depend on the few traffic deaths that do happen to keep theyre cause going. once again, follow the easy money.

One of the biggest DWI defense attorneys in Fort Worth has ignition interlock devices on his children's cars. Not because of a court order but because he wants to protect his children from themselves. Not saying the above situation is right but if you can get the truth out of defense attorney it might not be what you expect.
