duh and Mofo,
i agree completely.

sure but like all other DUI cases, this should
be a slamdunk conviction.

anyone who has a job involving carrying a firearm should be terminated for any drug/alcohol related charge. why should i trust the security of society to someone who cant be trusted to not drive drunk? his credibility is shot, he cant be trusted.

i think they should be fired for a DUI/DWI conviction if their job involves any driving.

should have thought about that before he got in the car.

breaking the law on or off the job in a way that significantly lowers your credibility in a related field to your job should result in termination. terminate a programmer for writing a virus, a journalist for putting out fliers with libel, a trucker/delivery man for DUI, a teacher for molesting a child, anyone in security/law enforcement for breaking the law. cops fit in that last category.
