i agree drunk driving is a big deal. i had a neighbor who was a very nice guy who KILLED a lady driving drunk. served time in prison, got out and continued to drive drunk. dont know if redick has a drinking problem but this will cause some concern.
I understand everyone's concern about drunk drivers. However, just because you got a DWI or DUI doesn't mean you were drunk. I wasn't drunk. I was a minor who was over the legal limit for a minor but under the legal limit for an adult. If I was 21, I would have gotten a speeding ticket.
Anyone here ever speed?
People die that way too. Just saying "he got a DUI" doesn't tell the whole story.
JJ's over 21. He may not have been horribly drunk but that particular excuse won't fly.
I'm not trying to apply it to this situation. Just the whole DUI thing in general. Sometimes it is misleading.
I haven't read anything that listed a BAC for him either so I'm waiting for all the facts. Chances are, he was fu-king wasted because he pulled a U-turn to avoid the checkpoint.
And I'm not trying to take the stupidity out of drinking and driving. It is incredibily dumb. It doesn't make someone a bad person though. People die in cars without alcohol involved and people die in accidents of other sorts all the time. Drinking and driving makes you stupid (in that instance), not a bad person necessarily.
