    regardless of the past history of the two, I believe the police should be held to the same standards as everybody else. we are all people having to face the same laws.

    I have has friends killed by DUI drivers. More than once! This is one of the areas I just dont have tolerance for. To many options available if you would like to drink like that.

    There is a lot the article doesn't address. On what basis did the judge make his ruling? What evidence was introduced by the defense? If the stop itself was tainted the rest of the evidence would be tainted as well.

    The article mentions a breathalyzer reading. I'm not sure about up there, but GA law only allows a positive or negative reading for alcohol from a breathalyzer, which is a different from the intoxalyzer. People misuse the terms all of the time though; so, that could have happened in the article.

    This one is bad all around.
