Well, first of all it is not a serious crime. It is a moving violation.
Second, if it is a crime but not immoral then what is the big deal?
Third, so now we just get rid of someone because you question their intelligence and maturity.
I suppose you support Royce White being on our team? How about Allen or Lucious? You certaintly can question their intelligence and maturity.
Or are we going to get back into the time thing again? Cause if it is only a question of timing then that is a really weak reason to let someone go.

- 0.10-0.125 BAC: Significant impairment of motor coordination and loss of good judgement. Speech may be slurred; balance, vision, reaction time and hearing will be impaired. Euphoria. It is illegal to operate a motor vehicle at this level of intoxication.
- 0.13-0.15 BAC: Gross motor impairment and lack of physical control. Blurred vision and major loss of balance. Euphoria is reduced and dysphoria is beginning to appear.
- 0.16-0.20 BAC: Dysphoria (anxiety, restlessness) predominates, nausea may appear. The drinker has the appearance of a "sloppy drunk."
Haha, these charts always crack me. Your middle school guidance counselor would be so proud.
Driving with a .16 shows the lack of ability to apply good judgment. I don't at all equate driving with a .16 and speeding or texting etc. If you equate the two then our disagreement is rooted in what you believe the effects of .16 on a person's ability to drive is.
I would also be willing to be that the mentioned studies about distracted driving were compared to someone driving at the .08-.09 range. Not even close to where Mann was.
Isn't this your whole problem, that it is dangerous to drive drunk because it could kill someone? If it is, then I don't know why you have a problem with drinking and driving and texting while driving?
Yes, driving drunk is a big deal. Don't think he should be let go though. Stupid decision, yes. Now he can share a life lesson with kids and parents while recruiting to say I screwed up, learned my lesson, and can better relate to the idiot decisions your kids will make in school and help to grow from them like I have.
I'm guessing you are one of the guys that can take 10 shots of Vodka wait 15 minutes and perform open heart surgery. The charts aren't accurate to 100% of people (especially related to how many drinks it takes to get there), but the BAC effects on motor ability are pretty accurate.
Andis total bull ****. You drank the substance, with that, you get this wonderful thing called accountability. You still make the conscious choice the texter does.Quote:
It is actually worse because the person is choosing to do something that is dangerous while they are not impaired by any substance.
Just watch...we'll keep Mann and not get Henton now. Double whammy.
