The Joplin Globe reports on a classic case of DUI hypocrisy.Short story: A DWI task force member is pulled over at a sobriety checkpoint and registers a 0.132 blood alcohol content. His passenger? The local police chief. If that’s not bad enough, the Mayor also had a DWI arrest this year.
The local MADD chapter is throwing one heck of a hissy fit, which is what the story is really mostly about. And yet it hasn’t dawned on any of them that maybe this is a sign that their punitive approach is unworkable.
