UPDATE: My apologies for being unable to correct the links and the lack of the completion of the cut pasting operation for the excerpt. Of course, I was busy. With the usual (you still lose) and with something SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT: Seeing 'In the Valley of Elah" ---- which I'll be blogging about soon, hopefully.
On with the post of yester-eve.
So how long before you think this will blow up in someone's face??
Maybe even MADD's. (Modernday headupAss Damning Democracy)
They're madd, alright.
Quite quite madd.
I hereby withdraw my support (such as it was ---- marginally negligible after they used the grieving families to get this started -- they do that A LOT in Florida) f
or this group.
I was totally OVER them being consulted for an opinion on a drunk-driving arrest. Tell me-- what ABOUT losing a loved one to a traffic crash with a drunk qualifies you for THAT or for understanding alcoholism or any myriad things to do with the legal system????
This equates with EVERY time they need to talk to a muslim they call the self-prolaimed muslim expert: Ahmed Bedir.
I'm much less than impressed with this.
Bush, you're rolling this shit out so fast you are definitely ASKING FOR pitchforks in the street.
I LOVE that the one
gestapo agent, in charge of the MADDD people
claims RIGHT UP FRONT that this is NOT vigilante'.
pilot program is slated to begin in Hillsborough County and may become a statewide initiative, according to Don Murray, Florida's executive director for MADD.
The plan: Recruit 20 volunteers armed with donated cell phones and send them out in the middle of the night to watch for telltale signs of drunk drivers.
MADD has worked closely with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, so Murray suggested to other MADD members that the pilot program begin here.
Murray envisions a program that will pair up community members who are willing to go through a screening process, including a criminal background check and an interview to ensure that those going out on the streets have proper training and experience.
He wanted to make it clear that volunteers will not be acting like law enforcement.
"This isn't like a vigilante program," he said. "They won't be attempting to stop or in any way interacting with these vehicles. They're basically just observers."
Volunteers will go out in teams. They will drive their own vehicles and take GPS equipment, so they'll be able to find their way through unfamiliar areas for two to four hours of searching, Murray said. They'll be told ahead of time of the sometimes-subtle clues for drunk drivers, such as driving under the speed limit or lingering too long at a green light, Murray said.
"We certainly don't want our observers to be calling erroneous reports in," he said.
If participants spot a suspicious driver, they will jot down the license plate, a vehicle description and a location and notify the Sheriff's Office. It's up to the deputy to check out the vehicle to determine whether an arrest is appropriate, Murray said.
The program was Murray's idea, he said, inspired by worries of what potential budget cuts could do to law enforcement's DUI teams.
"They'll likely lose officers from the road," he said. "We were looking ahead to try to see what our organization can do."
Hillsborough sheriff's Cpl. Stephen Decatur said the program is just a formalized process for what already happens everyday: People call law enforcement when they see something suspicious.
BULL SHIT !!!
If THIS is not vigilantism ---- bush is not the preznit. I love word games.
Call Charlie Crist and
Don Murray and even
the useless Hillsborough County Sheriff
and tell them we don't NEED NO JEW SPOTTERS on Florida's highways.
What the hell???
I think I'll join DAMM now.
Drunks against Mad Mothers.
These icky gestapo tactics rain shame and error on the deaths of the loved ones they held up to create this unit of Nazi-ism.
Fuck YOU MADD!!!!
And, nooooo I've never had a DUI. Hardly anyone I know drinks much.
But, we're all old enough to know that's NOT what THIS is about.
Get up OFF US you gestapo mad assholes.
Luckily you are victimizing ALL of Florida with this ... so it will be VERY expensive to defend yourselves.
BUT, from what I understand you have deep pockets.
This looks interesting .... DAMM
Oh and of COURSE, my comments did not make it in the st pete times, as usual.
I never curse in the MSM so that's not why.
I said something along the lines of coloring out of the lines and being investigated and another that they were jew spotting and also that I hope it doesn't cause people to fly away from traffic lights now. That is soooo stupid.
Don't hesitate. Nothing to see here. Move along or I'll call the police.
Oh -- and I don't like you so I think I just saw you swerving ... better have my buddy call the police so there's no direct connection to me fucking with you.
Yeah, Mr. Murray your lil gestapo ideas are gggrrreat. AND, no one can get fired. Like the deputy faking it up to arrest folks.
I notice Gee, David did NOT put his name on this.
IN fact, that's why this post was so remiss. I was cutting and pasting hte contact for him and it strung my computer up. Couldn't wait. Tommy Lee Jones was waiting for me.
OH, and here we go: MADD says that they are only in existence to help victims.
Something kinda makes me think that lurking around in the wee hours of the morning isn't going to get one up early enough to help victims.
MADD !!!! THIS IS NAZI-ism.
