Often, a DUI offense will stem from a one-car traffic accident.  Officers arriving on the scene see someone who is acting in a strange or disconnected way.  Some officers understandably view this behavior as evidence of impairment.  It is up to the DUI attorney to understand that such indicators can be caused by traumatic brain injury.  Below is a primer which was taken from the Centers for Disease Control web site:www.http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/tbi/TBI.htmWhat is Traumatic Brain Injury?A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating...

Trial Lawyers Are Lucky

Trial lawyers are a lucky breed.  We get to spend our lives talking to juries about the magesty of our Constitution. More than others we get to see how ideals matter and how fragile our system really is.  For the majority of my life I have seen my leaders fight hard to uphold the Constitution.  While I may have had political differences with a politician, I have never actually feared that one group was actually a threat to our core American values.  I now fear for our Constitution.As you enter your holiday...

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="180" caption="Image via Wikipedia"][/caption]Earlier this year, Middletown, Ohio trumpeted a drop in red light camera violations as a sign that the safety program has been a great success.

The Tennessean Takes On MADD

The Tennessean, June 22 – Drunken-driving stories, like last week’s op-ed by Mothers Against Drunk Driving representative Alexanderia Honeycutt, make headlines every day.  Groups like MADD relentlessly remind Americans that the abuse of alcohol continues to be a huge problem on our roadways and, as a result, the most drastic measures are needed. Though truly “drunken” driving is a serious issue, much of the reported problem is little more than PR.Consider fatality statistics. The number of deaths that activist groups attribute to drunken driving is grossly exaggerated.  Last year, federal statisticians classified almost 18,000 deaths as “alcohol-related.” However, alcohol-related does...

by David J. Hanson, Ph.D. (used with permission of the author, please visit http://www2.potsdam.edu/hansondj/AboutYourHost.html)Is college student drinking increasing? Is the rate of alcohol-related traffic crashes going up? Does alcohol advertising cause young people to begin drinking or drink more?The answer to all three questions is no. The scientific evidence about all three is clear that they are false, but alcohol activists mange to convince us otherwise. How do they do that?Most people who read the classic book How to Lie with Statistics do so in order to become more intelligent consumers of statistical information. However, it would appear that many alcohol activists might read...

Mangled Drunk Driving Data?

The Truth About Alcohol, with David J. HansonRetired Sociologist Dr. David J. Hanson joins Steve to discuss MADD and other initiatives to further reduce the legal BAC limits. Is it possible that data tells us the real dangers are from .17 BAC and up, and that ever-stricter limits are an emotion-driven, neo-prohibitionist witch hunt? You be the judge, but this conversation is a starting point.  Click on the link above to access the audio....

End the War on Drugs

On this date in 1971, President Richard Nixon declared "war on drugs" and announced  the creation os Special Action Office for Drug Abuse Prevention.  Its first acting director was Dr. Jerome Jaffe.  Countless dollars and lives have been sacrificed on the alter that drugs should be treated as a law enforcement issue, rather than as a societal treatment problem.  It is the position of this blog that the War on Drugs is a failure and that it should be a priority to end the failed war on drugs.  This position is no longer a fringe position, but a pro-law enforcement...
