This morning fun-time event was brought to once again by Alcohol!
Creating social woes and causing daily death and misery everywhere.

Coming soon to a theater near you.

No. I drink plenty of whiskey, but I have never driven off road, hit other cars, hit a tree, drove the wrong way, or tried to out run police.

This "event" was brought to us by Senior Haro. He is responsible for his actions.

Agreed with USA, people need to be responsible for their actions. It wasn't just the pure presence of alcohol that caused this mayhem.

So he would not have done any of this if he wasn't drunk?
Twisted logic. I say without alcohol this does not happen.
Some people can manage their heroin addiction without any problem as well so there is nothing to fear. drink up lushies!

Yes, let's blame anything but the person doing bad things.

Kill someone.. blame your parents!
Get bad grades in school.. blame the teacher!
Can't afford to live in a town.. blame the people who can afford to live there!

Let's live in a fantasy world where there is no alcohol. Forget we already tried that in this country and it was a miserable failure.

Stupid people will always find a way to do stupid things. It's in their nature. No amount of laws will change that.

It's called personal responsibility. We need to hold people accountable, even alcoholics.

I was pretty close to him when he made the U-turn.

There was another police situation down the road, towards that Taco Bell and it was very slow-going, and some people decided to just dump off on whatever street that is after Safeway. Not this guy. This guy made a U-turn as soon as he could on the island.

Of course, he took his sweet time and by that point the oncoming traffic was on his heels, and he got honked at. A few seconds later, the cop, who was part of the oncoming traffic, flipped on his lights.

I wasn't aware of all the mayhem going on behind me.
