    no no please don’t misunderstand me, you’re right driving charges are important and drink driving is way too common and accepted on this island, but its the only people the police seem to be able to catch…cos its so easy to sit at the side of the road and stop people.

    its the investigative roles they seem to not be able to do, the Treasure Island arrest is great, but its one arrest for god knows how many unsolved murders – so yeah, well done, something is better than nothing, and credit where credit is due.

    but is it enough?! i would say no.

    15:03, most of the "victims" of gun crime chose a lifesyle which exposed them to such risk.  innocent people killed by drunk drivers didn’t make that choice.  I have more to fear from a drunk driver.
