such a feel good story...but let's get real...unfortunately this walk means nothing; bring awareness to DWI? i guess the driver(s)that wiped out a family doesn't bring awareness to DWI...the driver that wiped out a group of teens doesn't bring awareness to DWI...the state cop and lawyer who ran down a guy walking across the street doesn't bring awareness to DWI...the last AFD officer who got pulled over for DWI doesn't bring awareness to, DWI...and a walk is going to do what now???

Part of the problem is the Metro Court System.

It is possible for a DWI case to run for years.

This is because a defendant's lawyer can ask for a delay each time the case comes up.
The judges routinely grant these delays without ever setting a limit. This is all legal.

It is used as a tactic by defense lawyers. They hope that the prosecution will eventually drop the case or make a mistake.

There should be a limit on
how many delays are permitted.

This state has very high unemployment.
Its a perfect time to make this city rich with bars that have family ties.
with city top cops they serve you licq. you lose the car they want. with one call from a realtive thats wanting your car or truck. There uncle
picks you up and your life is runed
thats why you cant get your car back.
this is ileagle corrouption.theft is wrong on the poor .dont worry the bar will be open till three. bring your best ride they will be ready with the beer one beer thats all it takes .
