I am curious to know why you feel it is nessary to kick people when they are down. there is no reason to post stuff here that has not been proven especially when you have false information. You have caused more problems in the lives of these people for something they may not be guilty of. I hear talk of public knowledge and thats fine if you have an issue then look it up on the pd website or call them there is no need to post it on the web in a manner that attracts attention. How would you feel if someone posted your "dirty laundry" on a website such as this and everyone has some. Maybe you should rethink this whole forum cause it is a disgrace!!!!

I agree. Ken are you perfect? Are you of some species we do not know about ? Last time I checked we were human beings who make mistakes and get in bad situations. The system is brutal enough to go through than to be "kicked when down"? Do we want our peers to fail, feel worthless and do it again? This site stinks. webcrims is enough

I respect children. anxieties with young children. But those childrsen are going to grow up. What if the shoe was on the other foot? I think its ridiculous to label and outcast people who make mistakes. It only adds to the growing divide our society is becoming through the information age. Everybody talks until it happens to them. With DWI, how come MADD or whatever won't organize or fund transportation home from bars and other places where alcohol is served? With all of the money that is being pumped into the system from DWI related cases MADD or other organizations can't get together volunteers or pay taxi companies to get people home safe and keep the streets safe? They don't do anything to prevent the sometimes inevitable.
