DWI excuse snares another non-driver

Since I stopped writing for Examiner I haven't paid nearly as much attention to the ABQ news, even though I am still subscribed to the sites. But this story just jumped out at me and begged for a comment.

The Bernalillo county law abuser/district attorney has decided it is OK to charge a woman with DWI for allowing another person who was drunk to drive.

According to the story- “This is a ‘this can happen to me’ story for anybody who’s ever decided, I’m going to have a designated driver who’s not quite as drunk as I am,” said district attorney spokesman Pat Davis.

OK, so the woman was drunk too. And she is expected to have the ability to judge whether the other guy was drunk and whether it was a good idea to let him drive?

The ratchet keeps going in the only direction it can move. And it will continue until the ratchet is destroyed completely in an act of self defense.
