  • >> No charges were filed because they were not actively using drugs.

    Let’s see: You find a couple passed out in their car, blocking a road way and the car smells of alcohol, you take them to jail and nearly ruin their lives because they could have killed someone.

    But if you find someone passed out in their car, blocking a road way and they are coming down from heroin, they you let them go because….because? Because???

    This makes absolutely zero sense. If someone is operating a motor vehicle under the influence of a substance, then the punishment should be clear.

    We’re slowly evolving to a world where there are two justice systems. Take a crap on the steps of the library in Seattle, nothing happens. Open a beer on Alki beach, $300 fine. Too much to drink the Casino and then you drive home and pass out at the wheel, $25,000 in legal fees. Too much heroin and then drive home and pass out at the wheel, nothing. Shoot a person while a citizen of the US, jail for a decade. Shoot a person while visiting from another country, you get sent back home and released.
