I'll Take "Things That Don't Surprise Me" for $500, Alex...

Brad_in_MA sends in another story out of my former state that completely does not surprise me...

Mass. man charged with 6th OUI due in court
A Massachusetts man charged with drunk driving for the sixth time will face a judge Monday.

John Sweezey of Pembroke will appear in court Monday for an arraignment.
You know how I know this story is false? Easy. In Massachusetts, after the fifth OUI offense, you lose your license to drive permanently. Therefore, this man did not have a valid permit, so he could not possibly have been driving that car.

That's how they think gun control works, so...

I know MA isn't the only place, just the most visible for me at least. I do not understand why we give so many chances to drunk drivers, I really don't. They get four chances before the license to drive - which is a privilege, remember - gets revoked for good. Four chances to kill, injury and maim before they finally pull your ticket for good - and people still drive despite that, anyways.

Funny how they're not constantly calling for "common sense car control" after these incidents...

That is all.

And I was thinking of course the story is false. It was only his 6th ....... I thought it only reached media awareness after 10 .....

When the question is why, the answer is money.

The State wants money. In order to get money from offenders, they have to have money to get. In order to have money, they have to have a job. In order to have a job, they have to have a car.

You didn't really think laws are about public safety, did you?
