I was watching the News and In Texas, they were talking about Public intoxication laws being enforced. I personally felt they went from one extreme to the other. Before, drunk driving was not strick enough. Now, people in Bars (not driving, or they might not even have car keys in their possession) were getting arrested for being intoxicated. One of the stories I watched was this girl at her bachlorette party. They had a designated driver picked out and everything, but because she was publically intoxicated, she was arrested and spent the night in jail with some hefty fines.

Also, imagine how this hurts Bar owners business. People arent going to go to a bar where they think they will get arrested for having a few to many drinks. That would result in the bar losing money.

Believe me, I am totally against drunk driving, and I think it should be prevented, but I thought that was a little bit ridiculous. Alcohol is served in a Bar, so of course there will be intoxicated people, it's just foolish to create issues, which could lead to bigger problems. Drunk Driving is stupid and ignorant, but should an entrire group of people be punished for some peoples actions? I think this is a bad way to solve a big problem, what do you guys think?

I think maybe the law is getting a little too carried away with it's power...

I think, seeing as how it's the LAW, most people will believe anything that is presented by it. Liek when the law in the 1400s and 1500s was slaughtering people in public for stealing a peice of bread...people thought that was just punishment.

But then again, they probably didn't have any other options, being it the 1400s-1500s.

I think the more a system does something, the more they think it's okay. And the more they think it's okay, the harsher it will be. Sooner or later, everyone could be okay with it...

That was hideously offtopic, but I wanted to say it.

I think it was a little extreme, and quite frankly, pretty stupid. I mean like you said, if you got to a bar your most likely going to come out at least a little tipsy. Hopefully the law will get changed or undone.

lmfao I think you should have said that to the cop, "Which part of the public did I consume exactly?" Laughing
I think this law is just to extreme and is going to create more problems than it fixes. Our government should know by now drinking laws like that dont do so well. The 18th amendment was a disaster Shocked

Keep your eye on the guy. If he gets into his car, and drives, pull him over. If he simply calls a cab, or has a friend drive, good. Stupid police, they're really pushing it these days.

Yeah I agree, but it isnt so much the police, they dont get to decide, "hmm, I like the speeding ticket law, oh, but marijuana being illegal, I wont enforce that." They have to do what they're told. The whole law making process is out of hand.

what a bunch of wankers, i come from a small welsh town where they send the police for training and we get all sorts of shit from them there, but i have never been arrested for walking home drunk. If they did that everyone around here where i live now they would forever be arresting people and there will be more drunks in prison than police.

cops round here are even worse.



down round NoPo, if you get pulled over by a cop they'll plant stuff in your car if you let them search it. they aint even allowed to search it they have to have a warrant, but people are stupid and afraid of cops so they let them search their cars.



in New Town, one day they'll be people on the street sellin crack with cops just on the other side of the road not doing a thing, but then the next day they'll just see a "suspcious looking man" (meaning a black guy) and they'll start searching him and the dude usually winds up getting arrested.



and hell man down in L. City there were the Liberty City Riots back in 1980, because of police brutality against black people. 4 police officers had beaten a black man to death, and the jury didn't find them guilty of the charges they were pressed with. that started the riots.



as to the thing about public intoxication or whatever? yeah it's shady so you can't really tell around here. I live in V-Town but there are different sections, there's a relatively "good" section where there's a bunch of condos and old people, I live around the badder part.



so far I haven't been ARRESTED, but I've been brought home by cops 7 times. a few times for drug/booze stuff. the last time I was brought home by a cop was because I was caught with a bottle of Jack's, and a pack a smokes. (hahahahahahahahaha the smokes were actually blunts but the cops was stupid) the cops were ok about it though because they just took the shit away and made sure I actually went into my house, they didn't tell on me to my parents.



Big Brother is watching you: fight the system.

It is stupid. Its making criminals of good people. Its almost like they are saying its to hard to catch murders and drug dealers, so lets go harass people in bars. Public intoxication arrests are such a joke in my opinion.
