I read about an amazing sting operation that happened here in Dallas where the police have actually captured people becoming publicly intoxicated… In bars! That is some real sleuth work. No question that the police involved deserve a raise for this masterful plan of capturing drunks in the act!
I like John Enright’s comment: “Texas Outdoes [The] Onion!”
I guess this is a preemptive strike against drunk drivers before they get a chance to drive… Where arresting a drunk driver was already a preemptive strike against them before they got a chance to crash. From my apartment, I can literally walk a little more than a dozen steps out my front door and be inside a bar getting drunk. Could that possibly be dangerous for anybody but me?
