The value of making public the names of people who break laws can be considered a safeguard for those who do not. It gives them an option to be as stupid or to avoid such people, to learn from the stupidity of others without having to do the same stupid things.
That doesn't mean they will not do such things but intelligent people generally may learn that way.
Of course it also gives other people the opportunity to say "I told you so" and feel superior even if they are not.

I saw a drunk saturday night along 14th in Eureka who almost took out a row of parked cars on the left side and swiped a tree on the right. I think he passed out and when he hit the tree he woke up and went back the road. I was going the opposite way and didnt have a phone or I would have called 911. I hope someone else saw him and called.

It's known as "shadenfruend" I believe. It's so small-town. By the way, in this land of the "free" aren't we innocent until proven guilty?

The value of listing the DUI's is to embarrass them & make the fear of publicity stop other people from drinking & driving.

It works.

As for Jason Singleton? Karma is right.

A
hardcore Alky is already beyond shame.

They need to get treatment.

This "Public Shaming" has never really worked with
addicts and alcoholics.
Makes the Puritans feel warm and fuzzy but that's about it

The embarrassment won’t effect this guy he doesn’t care! he sold his sole long ago I'm just glad to see him in the paper for something other than suing some business that's trying to get buy he’s made a living suing people for his own benefit not for the benefit of the ADA he’s a smuck! and deserves much worse to bad they'll just slap his hands and let him off with fines.

I can't think of a more deserving soul than Jason Singleton. A heartless, money grubbing attorney who truly deserves to be arrested.

How is shaming someone not guilty of a crime a good thing?

These are not DUI convictions, they are simply charges.

Do you grasp the disconnect? Someone, somewhere is going to be in a column like this. Held up for public derision, and after beating the case, sue the pants off of every entity that promotes this abuse, every entity that carries it and everyone that defames the charged.

DUI is more a political crime than a normal crime. MADD person has made millions off of it. It is how they feed their families. NHTSA data shows that they have achieved saturation. Everybody knows that driving under the influence of pot is bad. But those darned inebriated drivers keep getting in the car.

HMM, so the law is that people that have impaired their jugdment, should become rational in their impaired state lest they end up in a published list, with the readers assuming guilt, regardless of proof of guilt, and thus lose potential business and receiving abuse prior to a trial. Sue, baby,Sue

When they post the names of the people charged for shoplifting, graffiti, and other anti-social crimes, then this list will start being rational.

If you take notice that the various police ARREST the criminals. They are proven DUI on the spot legally. There are a few who beat the rap with high priced lawyers but for ever reason I have not seen anybody bringing a lawsuit against the agencies.

As for putting the names of other people committing crimes they are not doing anything that has the potential to kill/murder people.

Personally I would like to see DUIs executed on the spot! They don't deserve any better.
