What a sad loss of life. This could have been 100% avoided. I just don't
understand why people complain that they can't find enough liquor in this
state. People seem to be getting drunk just fine, we have children being born
with issues caused by alcohol, people that are beating up their families while
impaired etc.How intoxicated do people need to get before we have
enough alcohol?I'm going to take a page from the left wing book
of arguments, when they were trying to push gun control. "If we can save,
but, one life by making it against the law to drink liquor. Then it's worth
it period." The debate is over.
Ted,I have to disagree with you. By that logic we should outlaw
mobile phones as well, because people use them while driving and cause crashes.
While I agree that alcohol is a major drain on society I don't think we can
apply the logic you suggest.
You asked for it, calling our freedoms and rights a threat to our people is the
last straw. Fleeing an argument is not life threatening nor cause for arrest.
Running the red light is cause but not deadly endangerment when distracted.
Emotional distress is not an arguable or illegal act, and until we hear
arguments of who cause the accident will have to wait for the report and if
anyone distracted while driving slamming into cars and not in control of their
vehicle.Freedom, rights, self protection, itself cost lives, the
argument is over. As long as there is a united states of Utah where we live by
the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence, life
will always be at risk in our culture. Government and law enfrocment has nothing
to do with saving lives or preventing deaths. Government in the United States is
limited to after the fact enforcement by law of the Constitution. The US is the safest country in the world where you can patrol this country
and never see armed soldiers blocking roads and in convoys searching for the
insurrectionist who are free Americans dissatisfied with government leaders.
Your right to be intoxicated with drugs or alcohol ends immediately when you
endanger the lives of others.
Why do we tolerate any level of drinking and driving? Why shouldn't 1 DUI
result in a loss of license for life?
