Here is a perfect example, where the sheep(YOU) are likely not paying attention and easily duped, misinformed and misled into believing what a great exercise this is! Look, lets face it, we all agree, we need arrest those for drive drunk and we need to educate those that dont know better Im confident no rational person would argue that we do not need to keep up enforcement on Drunk driving. However, this is not the right answer! And if you want to know why, you need to put on your CRITICAL THINKING caps and PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the words:
Officers from 15 Burlington County police departments will work overtime [to] participate in a state Division of Highway Traffic Safety sponsored enforcement blitz targeting drunken drivers. The enforcement action, dubbed Over the Limit Under Arrest,
Key words? OVERTIME and STATE SPONSORED. This little exercise is being paid for BY YOU, the taxpayer [ie., State Sponsored] and YOU are paying cops AT OVERTIME RATES to do it --- To do, what we pay them everyday to do. Which, I sure the cops just love State funded overtime. Why can we not step up enforcement --- thorough out the year --- by adjusting work schedules to address the need (i.e., move a few cops off day shift for a few months --- put them on another shift to just focus on DD). And, if a county or city is having a DD problem, they should be dealing with it appropriately. If a city is not having a problem, what is a BLITZ going to do. This money can be much better spend other places. Not to mention, how about not spending it and use it to offset these crazy property taxes! STOP WASTING OUR MONEY.
And for those of you stupid enough to support this little BS Exercise because of your feeling against DD --- I tell you that you should not have to waste more of your tax dollars for what you are already paying the cops to do! If public outcry is to do a better job arresting drunks, then the mayor or police chief would find a way to do it, without any additional state dollars! And if they are not getting it done, they you vote them out, or have the state make some recommendations on what should be done. BUT, Please, Dont be misled by the spin that they are doing this, because we the people support it. I support you doing your job everyday of the year --- And not using blitz tactics, paying cops overtime rates to make a small insignificant impact! It would be cheaper to hire 30 special duty -- part time police officers -- and post them in bars around the counties or why not put breathalyzers in a few hundred county bars and many people would likely do the right thing if given the opportunity.
