And What About This One?

What do you think about this one? Should police be able to arrest you for being drunk in your own home IF you are not causing harm. That seems to be actually the disagreement here quite frankly, but this court decision could make a difference. I'm thinking if they use the legal limit, man all the home picnics that could be a problem!

It is hard to say, as they note, if the police don't do something & then you die they would be held accountable. At the same time they can't watch to see if you are going to drink 4 more beers. At what point is it ok & when not? If there is a call due to disturbance or harm, well sure, but if not?

The fact that they were videotaping & then knocked it out makes me wonder. Then again one might be worried about proper context, missing the actions which lead up to something could make it look very different. Hard to say.

Well what do you think?
