    Yes this is what I am getting at opposed to what currently goes down. I think it would be a great benefit for all in involved including the tax payer.

    This is like saying a zero percent crime rate is bad for detectives

    LOL..I guess it does, but one thing for sure it it would free up manpower on the law enforcement side to actually tackle real crime. all this said, I don't want to diminish the importance of our law enforcement or judicial system.

    So? You could say the same for many things. I really don't think this argument has any value to society.

    You could use this for any amount of government. Doesn't work for me.

    What? Parenting and society as a whole aren't really all that connected. Society isn't meant to teach us how to live, parenting is. Different rules apply.

    laws are meant to prevent as well as punish...
    Hogwash. Laws are meant to punish when a behavior harms another's rights or life. Preventing crime just robs us of our rights/liberty.

    That being said, it appears the objection is to a change in the law that looks back further than five years when looking at subsequent convictions. Now I don't know how that translates into real life, and I don't know in what context the state senator's objection was raised. Was he really trying to defend drunks and alcohol retailers? It's possible, but is it likely?

    So you oppose to having the visibility of state troopers on the highway?
