The Scarlet Letter – Version 2

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

Direct from the battlefront of MADD's "War on Drunk Driving", a variant on the Scarlet Letter solution:


(From LTVNEWS – site discontinued); Sault St. Marie, Ontario.  LTVNEWS in conjunction with MADD and Sault Ste. Marie City Police and OPP are joining forces to get Impaired Drivers off the roads.

Each day, LTVNEWS will post the names of those charged by City Police. This joint  effort will begin from 8:00 a.m. November 21st to midnight on the 7th of January.

We here at LTVNEWS hope we don't have to list many names, but we will to make our community a safer place to live.


Note:  This public humiliation is not applied to those arrested for rape, child molesting, robbery, drug dealing, theft, etc. – only to suspected drunk drivers.  Apparently, identifying accused child molesters and drug dealers does not make the community "a safer place to live".

Note:  The humiliation applies to anyone arrested for DUI; actual guilt is not a prerequisite.
