If you read here, you know that I levy my share of both criticism and praise at police officers. In this case, I want to share the bravery and sacrifice that this Florida State Trooper made in protecting a group of pedestrians from a drunk driver when she deliberately placed her patrol vehicle between a group of runners and a DUI driver who was refusing to stop:

Man, that had to hurt. If you look at the roofline of her SUV, you can see that the entire vehicle is bent.

That took some real bravery and self sacrifice.

I have ZERO tolerance for drunk drivers. If I were king for a day, you drink and drive (your right), and injure someone, you’re executed within 30 days (your responsibility).

It may not deter people from drinking and driving but it will dang sure make sure you never do it again.

I’m tired of picking up the broken bodies of the innocents….40+ years in healthcare

As CDR Salamander would say, fullbore.

My hat’s off to that State Trooper. Damn.
