NEWS FROM THE PUNISHMENT SOCIETY–UTAH BECOMES FIRST IN NATION TO LOWER DUI LIMIT TO .05 PERCENT

By | General Posts

 

The Beehive State made history on December 30th by becoming the first state to lower its blood alcohol concentration limit (BAC) for drunken driving to .05 percent, just in time for New Year’s Eve.

Utah lowered the drunken driving BAC from .08, the national limit imposed by former President Bill Clinton in 2000, to .05, making it the nation’s strictest DUI law. Utah’s new law also says anyone who “operates a motor vehicle in a negligent manner causing the death of another” will have committed criminal homicide, which is a felony.

In 1983, Utah was the first state to lower its blood alcohol limit from 0.10 to 0.08 for impaired driving. It would take nearly two decades for every state to follow suit, but as they did, the nation’s rate of alcohol-related traffic deaths dropped 10%. Now, Utah is pioneering the move to lower it once again.

Utah State Representative Norm Thurston (R-Provo) sponsored the bill at the request of the National Transportation Safety Board, which has been urging states to lower DUI limits to 0.05 since 2013.

The American Beverage Institute says the new lower limit targets social drinkers and calls the law an “attack on the restaurant and hospitality industries,” claiming nearly 70% of alcohol-related fatalities in the U.S. are caused by drivers with a much higher BAC of 0.15 and above.

Four NY Cops Disarmed By Department Due To Love Triangle

By | General Posts

Typically, I think people’s relationships are generally their own business. I have morals that cause me to form opinions about extra-marital affairs, mind you, but I usually don’t care all that much.

What I do tend to care about is the Second Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms.

One refrain I often hear is how we don’t need guns because we have the police, that those are the people who can be trusted with firearms, while the rest of us can’t.

What does that have to do with relationships? Well, quite a bit. You see, those same police officers that anti-gunners want to trust to protect us are humans who sometimes get pretty emotional. Enough so that they can’t be trusted with guns.

This love triangle has four corners — and four police badges!

An NYPD sergeant cheated on his cop girlfriend with a fellow officer, whose husband is also on the job — and the bosses took away everyone’s guns so they wouldn’t kill each other, sources told The Post on Monday.

The NYPD report says a total of nine handguns were seized from all four cops under a section of the Patrol Guide that permits impounding firearms in “non-disciplinary cases,” including those involving “stress as a result of family or other situations.”

A law-enforcement source said the circumstances raised “the potential for violent outcomes due to the sensitive nature of infidelity and everyone having access to guns.”

The Dec. 30 report also says the entire mess was turned over to the Special Operations Division Investigations Unit for further review, “including a review of social media.”

All four cops were given back their guns and returned to active duty in their original assignments during the past week, pending results of the SOD investigation, an NYPD spokesman said.

Now, I’m not saying that taking the guns was the right thing to do.

What I am going to point out to those who claim that we can and should trust the police explicitly with our protection is that police are people. They’re not better; they’re not worse. They’re a representation of the society they come from, and in our case, that’s a good thing for the most part. But that also means that sometimes, they get wrapped up in other bad situations. They get stressed. They get worked up, just like everyone else.

Yet we’re supposed to outsource our personal protection to them.

In this case, we see them having the same base instincts as anyone else. They’re not more moral, more deserving of responsibility than anyone else. This case shows they can be worse people than most of us would ever think to be. One officer bragged on social media about cheating on his wife with another man’s wife, for example. Does that sound like the kind of person you want to put your life in the hands of?

Anti-gunners are quick to tell us the police will protect us, but I’d much rather trust the hands typing this right now than the hands of a man who thinks it’s awesome that he had sex with another man’s wife.

Don’t get me wrong; this isn’t representative of the police as a whole. I’ve known far too many of them in my life to think that. But it does show us the one flaw running through every officer in the country. They’re human.

If you have to trust a human to protect you, why wouldn’t you be that human?

BIKER DATING SECRETS from a Fan

By | General Posts

 

 

As a serial biker dater who’s secretly proud of her hard-earned status, I’d like to share my wisdom with the world and all those girls out there whose hearts skip a beat at the thought of being in the same room with single bikers.

 

Keeping in mind that women have incredible power over men because men just can’t resist us, I’d like to draw your attention to the fact that biker men are also bad boys, and require a special kind of strategy, which I meticulously outline below so no detail gets overlooked.
