Add to that Dennis Parson, Marion County Jail Deputy, alleged to have nailed a guy in a car @ a 55mph stoplight down the street from said Jail while hella drunk. I still love my beer but believe, if drug prohibition is to continue, the 21st Amendment should be repealed (add tobacco to the list; Schedule I; no medical value). Millions of people still continue to DUII everywhere despite all the strict laws and consequences.
