Some of you guys are fucking pussies. Don't act like getting a DUI means he's going to be a bust or that it makes him a terrible person. I bet you all of you will if you haven't already at some point drive drunk hell, you might even drive really fucking drunk. Is it dangerous and irresponsible? Yes, is it really that big of a fucking deal, honestly no. Do you have any idea how many NFL players probably drive around drunk?
This and your other posts in here are pretty much some of the stupidest shit I've seen on these boards.
DUI is a very big deal because it can KILL another person. It's gross negligence and very irresponsible and can lead to murder. To say that isn't a big deal is just stupid. I've never driven drunk in my life, because I've never been drunk in my life. I rarely drink, but when I do, I'm responsible about it. I also have several friends who drink, and my dad has his own beer-making "factory" as he calls it, down in the basement, so he drinks often too- but I've never seen him even close to drunk.
None of them have ever driven drunk, assuming I trust their word on that. I have gone and picked up people from the bar who called saying they needed a driver. I've also been the designated driver several times. Just because in your world, you and your friends are grossly irresponsible and drive drunk and don't consider it a big deal, doesn't mean the rest of us who think it is a big deal are "fucking pussies."
That's the most ignorant statement I've heard in a long, long time. We're pussies because we think the fact that he's just lucky he didn't kill someone is a big deal. Right. More like responsible people.
We're not talking about someone who just barely broke into the DUI range either. He had a .24 BAC, 3 times the legal limit. He's swerving back and forth on the road, and constantly crossing the center line, according to the police report, and wouldn't stop to be pulled over for four blocks. He was really, really drunk.
I have had two good friends of mine killed by drunk drivers, one guy who was drunk and driving a semi, and just crossed the center line and killed everyone in the car my friend was driving, and the other guy who was so drunk he couldn't see that there was a red light and went right through the intersection, and slammed into the passenger side door.
This doesn't make Blackmon a terrible person, but it shows that he is, at least sometimes, a very irresponsible person who needs to think through the possible consequences of his actions.
