I love it.. Now lets get those child molesters pictures in the paper as well. If you do a crime your photo is mine.

How about releasing the names of the individuals after conviction. This would be a foreign concept to an overzealous self-absorbed grandiose prosecutor like Rice. In this country, an arrest is meaningless as it relates to whether or not a person is guilty or not guilty of a crime. That being said, if someone is convicted of DWI, that person should face harsh punishment. Too many people are being killed and seriously injured because of these drunk fools. So, DA Rice, how about waiting until you and one of your minions get a guilty verdict before you ruin lives. If you get a guilty verdict, then publish the names and faces of the guilty to your hearts content. Until then, reign it in. Your over zealousness is not becoming and it is obvious.

I am so glad you drunk drivers are upset about what the police and Suozzi are doing. It just makes you look all the more stupid. Your all just lucky you didn't kill someone.
We can only hope just one of you will learn a lesson

Mr. Kirk heres is something to ponder, these people were arrested for at best slightly buzzed enough to blow at .08 or above other wise they would not have been in custody right? well if there not guilty at least this will serve as a deterent not to drive drunk right? stop with the liberal ACLU B.S. Do you really believe the girl that blew a .15 2X the legal limit with 4 un-opened beers in the vehicle an empty in her bag but she says she kissed a boy who was drunk? c;mon dude

right, but you could say the same thing about 90% of other crimes as well.

If the media and paparazzi can 'go after' celebrities as they go about their daily business (shopping, eating, etc) then I'm 100% for posting pictures of people who put the lives of other people in danger by drinking and driving over the legal limit. P.S. It's russian roulette driving around LI after 11pm any given night these days, especially weekends.

I was drunk as can be and confused my AMEX with a PBA card when I was asked for my license. So I showed both, no problem. Not sure if I got the AMEX back though.....

No-one should drive legally intoxicated. And those who are caught should have due process and face the consequences. It is an experience that causes sane people to adjust their priorities.

But to publish mug-shots of first-time, non-accident offenders is not the way to deal with the issue.

More than one-time offenders, all for it! Go to jail for a few years!

But persons, who have caused no harm but to themselves for a first offense, should be given the opportunity to make amends. 98% do.

Destroying peoples reputations and careers, their family and social relationships, is unfair.

I am certain that first-time offenders get the point. Make certain that if you are caught again, you get years in prison.

That works.

These people represent an ongoing danger to the public and their alleged crimes should be made public and their photos published. If they will not listen to reason, if they will not be frightened by the deaths caused by other intoxicated drivers, then maybe embarrasment in front of their friends, family and neighbors will do the trick.

Hats of to the Nassau County Police Department for the enforcement and to the District Attorney's office for the prosecutions. These dangerous persons must be taken off of our roads.

LOVE IT!!! Allow me to add that the cocky arrogant Long Island Cops are rude!! And when did cops get so ugly?? They used to be hot, now it's as if all the kids who were picked on school are cops and still have not learned the art of courtesy, discretion, flirting or empathy. They used to look alot better in uniform as well, seems as if the Nassau/Suffolk PBAs have lowered their physical standards....where have all the cowboys gone?sigh....

Maybe Suozzi can create a unit to stop the illegals from consuming alcohol and conducting crap games in the Home Depot parking lot in Hempstead. Publish their photographs after arrest and shame them to go find a real job.

Me doth think thou protesteth too much, Kirk! Worried you'll get bagged this weekend??? The breathalizer is good enough for me. It makes me sick to think these guilty drunks are wasting taxpayer money by pleading not guilty and requiring a trial. For God's sake, man-up and accept personal responsibility.

AND YOU'RE PROUD OF THAT?!! I don't think your PBA card will help you if you kill someone while your drunk. Stay home and drink. Don't risk other people's lives because you have a "get out of jail free card."

It's not ACLU B.S. It's called the right to be "innocent till proven guilty" and guess the f**k what, it's what our country was founded on moron.

pba cards only work for minor infractions. do you really think a cop will risk someones life just because you carry a card? don't think so!
