    This guy started his holiday drinking early, slowly hits cruiser head on

    The road appears to have 3 lanes each way plus a center lane, yet he still managed to hit the cruiser head on despite the cruiser having the emergency lights on.

    We get the same thing on the lakes around here. Had someone get killed in a head on collision between two boats on the Lake of the Ozarks last week end with two more life flighted to Kansas City. At least one of the boat drivers was drunk. We will probably have two or three more flown out by next Sunday with the 4th being on Thursday and everyone taking a long week end. I'm going to hide out at home, BBQ the our last two Hy Vee rib eye steaks, then go practice my chipping and short wedge game at the golf course, which thankfully is only two miles from home. Tomorrow evening, we drive one block to the end of the street, park the van, and have the best seats in the house for the city fireworks display.

    Something about the flashing emergency lights draws in drunks like moths to a flame. How do you tell a concerned family that yea, you picked up their injured family member for transport to a hospital then the ambulance got nailed by a drunk driver? Sadly in TX, there's a higher than average number of illegals that are those drunk drivers and virtually nothing happens to them.

    Oh ever do any target practice with your golf balls - maybe use a lob wedge to lift the ball 80 ft or so into the air then shotgun it?

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    Governments don’t create human rights; they either recognize them or suppress them

    With the dash cam going, I'd venture to say, he doesn't have much of a case.

    It almost seems like those flashing lights gives them something to aim at. But poor target recognition.
    Whatever adjective or verb comes to mind, I am...NotSo.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    He was blinded by the lights so it's the officer's fault.

    The German word for drunk drivers on the wrong side of the road is Geistfahrer. Ghost driver - a driver who's about to be a ghost.

    Does that mean I'm about to be a horse?
