I do not know what I can possibly say to express how I feel about this one.

legal blog watch? Really?
Puritanism is an ugly propensity in man.
It becomes something far worse than merely ugly when puritanism becomes the law.
Then it becomes a ongoing violation of our civil rights.
Windbag omitted this little nugget:
MOORE v. STATE - June 28, 2011.
He will claim since he posted the link he did not omit it. He failed in another one of his rants to mention the guy that got tazed was under the effects of PCP.
If states have public intoxication laws people don't like they should try to have them repealed.
Also, I hope the idiot friend got a ticket for no liscense.
Countering this, I am always suspicuous of "broken X" initial reasons for pull overs, too easy to make up after the fact.
She did not just have "2 and 1/2 beers" either. She couldn't walk or talk.
The police could have used their discretion and sent them home, but the friend did not have a license.
What was her sentence?
Inebriation is against the law?
Yes. In that town "public intoxication" is illegal. It's probably one of those laws that rarely gets enforced unless someone is creating a disturbance. This woman was not; but she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Her friend was driving illegally which complicated the whole situation for the cops.
The blog has two links to the Indiana Supreme Court decision. Feel free to click on either of them and show me that the facts in the blog are wrong.
