Yet Another IMPD DUI

     The job is stressful, but so are many others.  If there's any group who should know the kind of trouble that can arise from drunken driving and just how few drinks it takes to cross the .08 line, it would be police.

     But it's happened again: another IMPD officer has been nabbed and charged with driving while impaired, this time after reports of someone driving erratically.

     Meanwhile -- and I'm sure it's totally, completely unrelated -- the Marion County Prosecutor opines the city's police force is short some 700 officers.  But hey, no pressure, huh?

You can't spell impaired without IMPD!

Too bad the mayor found it more satisfying to blow $6 million on a cricket field instead of on more police.

There is no group who knows how few drinks it takes to get over the .08 line, true. But there's also no group that is less likely to get arrested for it.

That badge and credential wallet is a handy get-out-of-jail-free card in most of the U.S., and the Thin Blue Line know it.
