Just wanting to see how others are about DUIs. They are my pet peeve and i'm not even an LEO yet.
I've been fire/ems/dispatch so i've seen the bad side of 'em. I have low tolerance for it. Now i'm not saying i'll be one of those who watches those leave the bar - i'm saying those who have acted up or can't keep their vehicle in their lane. No cutting breaks.
I ask because at the moment i'm a dispatcher and my boyfriend is a deputy. Just got a call that these guys got into an argument at a local Applebees. Drunk guys started hollering at dudes girlfriend and it was on. Turned into road rage on both parties sides.. My caller didn't sound intoxicated and was insanely polite. I could hear the people in the other car screaming at them - could hear the fear in the callers voice. Hard to get an officer to them because they both keep turning around playing cat and mouse.
City cop gets the other vehicle on the interstate.. he blows right at legal limit... they just have him call someone to get his truck and take him home. WTF?
I simply as the b/f why so easy on him. He has already had a reckless ticket on file - was swerving at the other vehicle and was obviously causing trouble.. his answer "I didn't see any of it and i'm tired of things always being thrown out because I didn't see it." Uhm didn't he blow .08? Didn't you see that?
Yea now he's mad at me.
Different views I guess... He didn't hear what I heard..
Just curios if i'm being too anal about DUIs?
