Drunks and theft are problem. All those in favor of hanging drunks and cutting off the hands of burglars comment “I”. "I"

Hmmmmmm --- sounds a bit harsh --- after all, their errant behavior is probably the fault of society in general --- or they are the product of a non-loving home environment --- could be that these stressful times are overwhelming --- maybe a chemical imbalance --- an undiagnosed genetic disorder --- or perhaps even a lack of safe access to medicine Whatever it is a little more compassion is in order --- remember, there is no *I* in *NOT MY FAULT* ...

Maybe the Sheriff's should be pro-active and talk to the bartenders in the area and make sure "over service" isn't part of the problem.

people that have drug addictions are going to do what they have to do to get what they need or want. its not right by any means but by suggesting to cut off hands??!! go back to the drawing board buddy. thats why they have jails for criminals.

the tax on booze should be in proportion to the harm inflicted to self and society... this chart shows the sales tax on booze and tobacco: http://www.boe.ca.gov/sptaxprog/etdrate.htm#1 $.20 tax on a gallon of beer it's much of an incentive to slow down and it doesn't pay for a fraction of the damage caused...

Now this is funny --- the self-professed critic of Government waste and corruption wants the Government to increase the tax on beer to solve the problem Why not just get a Sheriff to stop the drunks when they leave the bar (or retired military social club) ???
Ed Sorrels November 28, 2012 at 09:05 PM
Jon ! The V.F.W. is so much more than a"Retired militrary social club", Yes some of us will have a drink but we also do so much more than that, Honor Guard's and Firing Squads for military funerals, help with getting vetran's benifits for those just out of service and many other thing's. it also helps to support our members when they come under stress and need to talk with another person that has expierenced War !

Ed --- you know, when we were growing up the way to tell if someone's dad was an Officer or a Chief was to look in the Den A Liquor Cabinet meant he was an Officer A Beer Tapper meant he was a Chief ...

Jon, I grew up in a town that didn't have police, we had a county Sheriff if there was a real problem other than that it would wait till he got there on hias round's, LOL The guy in our town that was the worst drunk didn't drink in the one bar we had or retired mitilary social club's which we didn't have, When the Sheriff caught him on the street drunk he just took him back to the church and told him to stay there! So all of us have had different expierences growing up and it is those selfsame expierences that make us who we are and shape what we believe in, We are all alike but so different !

i have always held the stance that all taxes and regulations should be in proportion to harm inflicted on self or society....

Ed --- I've been in IB since '55 --- and trust me, we have had our share of party people over the years --- and one thing has always been true --- everywhere there is a bar people drink --- and some even get wasted --- and of those a large percentage get in a car (or on a bike) and go home --- unassisted Guess what else --- for years the IBPD used to sit outside the Clock, Rat, Scoreboard, Plank, VFW, Legion, and other places to make sure these people understood the error of their ways --- to gently remind them that drinking while impaired isn't a very smart idea Unfortunately, now the Sheriff's are apparently too busy ticketing folks for not wearing seat belts, violating curfew at the beach, illegal skateboarding, talking on phones, taking up two spaces in front of their own houses, stopping in front of schools, and so many more dangerous activities that they have no time to stop drunks from driving Unless, of course, it is on overtime at a designated checkpoint ...
