Better question would be how much money did we spend on this operation. I guarantee it is higher than the 5k they brought it. Bullcrap, this system is not going to last this way.

I believe sweeps like this need to be performed when individuals do not pay their fines. Otherwise what would be the incentive to pay a fine.

Makes too much sense for the yahoos in LE here. They'd rather milk the system for overtime etc.

Part of the reason for arresting these deadbeats is to encourage the next group of criminals to pay THEIR fines. Justice delayed is justice denied. Yes, it costs money to enforce the law. It costs money to lock people up. It costs money to enforce the court decisions. What is the alternative?: To not arrest people driving while intoxicated? To slap them on the wrists when they are caught ? To give them sanctions or punishments that are not enforced? To just look the other way?

Not to be a jerk, but, if these people were your children......and you grounded them, took away their cell phone, etc and they just ignored their punishment, would you just walk away and say that it's just too much time, trouble, expense, to enforce your own rule? If you think it's not worth the time, trouble or expense, then you are part of the problem. That same stinkin thinkin is why society is screwed up.

Those who drive drunk are criminals. They jeopardize the lives and safety of you, me and our children. The fines they pay help pay for services and enforcement to keep you, me and our children alive. Suck it up.

Great job done by the warrant sqaud.

You people obviously have no idea what happened. Just because someone gets a DWI doesn't make them a dirtbag. I know a person included in the 11 and his DWI was years and years ago. People make mistakes when they are young. And they are now paying their dues. MInd YOur Business and stop listening to the news!!!!!
