Drunk Driving Billboards Are Meant to Instill Fear

Here is a DUI billboard which is appearing right now in Austin, Texas.  The stated goal of the NHTSA (drunk driver detection) training that police officers undergo is to instill fear of arrest in the public.  Is it a good idea to make every citizen fear the police?  What kind of impact does this have on law enforcement?  It is the position of Charles M. Rowland that people who live in a free country should not be intimidated by their police force.  Further, the cause of eliminating impaired drivers is hurt when there is a wide-spread perception that officers are...

Are You Being Brainwashed?

Have you ever thought you were being brainwashed?  Here is a list of brainwashing/mind control techniques that have been used by cults, political leaders, armies and totalitarians through the ages.  This list can be found at http://www.phinnweb.org/neuro/brainwash/.  As they say on their site, "I can't guarantee the information found from some of these pages is totally unprejudiced or scientifically verifiable under skeptical observation. So, it's up to you to decide whether to believe them or not."1) HYPNOSIS - Inducing a high state of suggestibility, often thinly disguised as relaxation or meditation. a.

The Role of the Prosecutor

"The [prosecutor] is the representative not of an ordinary party to a controversy, but of a sovereignty whose obligation to govern impartially is as compelling as its obligation to govern at all; and whose interest, therefore, in a criminal prosecution is not that it shall win a case, but that justice shall be done. As such, he is in a peculiar and very definite sense the servant of the law, the twofold aim of which is that guilt shall not escape or innocence suffer. He may prosecute with earnestness and vigor-indeed, he should do so. But, while he may strike...

Statistics from the DUI Gulag (www.DUIGulag.com)

Despite what MADD propaganda would have you believe, in 1996 only .0000143 percent of the American population was killed in so-called "alcohol related" motor vehicle accidents where someone had a blood alcohol content as high as 0.10% . Government statistics indicate that each year more people die as a result of accidental drowning in America than die in low BAC related motor vehicle accidents. A recent study at a major U.S. university found that low BAC drinking drivers pose far less danger to public safety than do non-drinking drivers who have sleep apnea. In fact, your chances of being killed...

Anti-Photo Enforcement Gathers Steam

Today the topic of photo-enforced traffic came up on the Mike McConnell Show on 700 WLW.  The Ohio Supreme Court decision out of an Akron case upholding this technology was roundly criticized as was the use of photo enforcement technology.  The most prescient comments were about slippery slopes and the good ol' days when America would not stand for things like this.  The host's proposed solution: vote any politician who favors photo enforcement out of office.  Had I the time, I would start a web site with every official and his/her stance on these important legal issues.  Please support the National Motorists...

Being a Lawyer Must Suck!

How to deal with the central emotional feature of the profession "Our firm is ruled by fear," said Steve. "Hell, the whole profession is about fear. Fear of not billing hours, fear of not bringing in business, fear of losing business. Fear of not making partner. Fear of being in trouble with my wife for working too much, and, of course, fear of being in trouble with the partnership for not working enough." He stopped for a moment, letting his own words sink in.  "And it started in law school. The whole thing runs on fear. I'm sick of being afraid...

DUI Study: Tougher Penalties Don’t Work

Study: Penalties no deterrent for drunken drivers Tougher punishments may not be effective in deterring people from driving drunk, according to a study by University of Florida researchers.  Increases in the minimum jail time keep few drunken drivers off the road and don't significantly prevent fatal car crashes, according to the study, published last week in the online edition of the journal Accident Analysis & Prevention.  The researchers looked at the changes in laws and policies for driving under the influence between 1976 and 2002. They also studied the rates of DUI arrests and fatal alcohol-related car crashes.Alexander C. Wagenaar, lead author of the study and...

Champagne Charlie Is My Name

The first "pitch-man" bubbled his way to fame in 1866.  George Leybourne penned some songs about getting sloshed on champagne, rechristened himself "Champagne Charlie" and was the toast (literally) of Victorian England.  Dressed in the height of ‘fast’ fashion, in bow tie and tails he would swig from a bottle of Moët declaring his love for the high life and women. (from http://www.peopleplayuk.org.)  Seizing on his fame and sex appeal, the Moet & Chandon champagne manufacturers commissioned him as their spokesman.  Soon thereafter, a rival champagne manufacturer, Clicquot, hired "The Great Vance."  The gambits worked and the celebrity endorsement was born.True to...
