So if there is a law that says the police can't arrest an indiidual under the influence...if the guy is going to vote in cong ress...shouldn't we be asking how he could vote...in a DUI-state...in congress? Someone needs to ask serious questions here.
I'm betting there WAS someone with him in the car. There are likely cameras all over the place in this area. Patrick's monologue was just a cover tactic to give the Dems enough time to destroy evidence and threaten people. It puts the press at the feet of Patrick and away from the "real story".
1) Was driving with his headlights off at 2:45 a.m.
2) Swerved into oncoming traffic, almost sideswiped a police cruiser, and crashed into a security barrier.
3) Was observed staggering after he exited his vehicle.
4) Smelled of alcohol.
5) Lied about being "late for a vote".
6) Lied about not having had alcohol,
7) Was seen drinking at one or two bars earlier in the evening.
I'd say that the above facts sufficiently form the basis of a case. I'm sure that the two sergeants who drove him home could provide testimony that would ice the case. No need for any test results.
I'm sure that like every law, there are "precedents" which aren't being mentioned.
And why isn't there physical proof?
The "impaired" box was checked off on the occurrance report yet no breathalyzer was administered.
Imagine that happening in your town to you or your friends.
Imagine anyone in your town giving the appearance of being impaired as he climbs out of an accident vehicle in the presence of a constable and having a police NCO sending the constable on about his other duties and giving the subject of the investigation a ride home in a police vehicle, without administering a breathalyzer.
Let's give Kennedy a pass.
He is, after all, a Kennedy, which means that he is part of America's unimpeachable nobility.
Instead, let's go after the coppers. They don't have the Kennedy impunity.
Let's sic MADD on them.
With ego and blubber as big as Scuba Teddy, I bet it would have been hard NOT to have watched him. Though, passed out on the floor is not all that entertaining viewing material.
"Besides, the Ambien made him drink and drive and caused him to do anything else he should not have done."
Now that the the witnesses arecoming out with the fact that his was seen drinking at a bar, the spinners will claim
"He was sleep-drinking."
You're too clever. :-)
The GOP has written off Massachusetts for years and the false notion that Massachusetts is a hopelessly liberal state becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The fact is that this state is ripe for the taking if only the GOP would put up a fight and run some candidates. We've been electing GOP governors since 1990 but our bench (which was never strong to begin with) is running dry. In fact, we would have lost the Governorship in 2002 if not for the fact that Mitt Romney came to the rescue from Utah. Now that Mitt has evidently decided to run for president, there is pretty much nobody who can save us from the Democrats taking over in November. And if the Democrats win, it will be by default. The state convention the GOP just had here was a joke. The convention hall was half empty and there was no excitement at all to nominate Mitt Romney's successor. Whenever I go to vote, it is discouraging because at the local level, there are constantly Democrats running unopposed. I leave those races blank but it's an empty gesture.
Even though conservatives have been hung out to dry up here by the national GOP, we still turn out and give at least 40% of the vote for whoever the GOP is running in a particular race. All it would take is a little effort to tip the scales in the other direction.
Did the police report specify if he was fully dressed or if he had pajamas on? Surely this would be an indication of whether he had just gotten out of bed and was driving.
Roughly two and a half to three blocks. And the last street is narrow. The officer was lucky to avoid the rat bastard.
Was that some kind of "Bar Fly Ping" ?
Home and bar are closest.
