We certainly need to make changes to prevent things such as this from happening. However, if he would not have been caught driving intoxicated, would he still have committed this other crime? I know of a person that was in the drug program for hard drugs and was tested weekly. On several occassions, test showed extremely small amounts of alcohol. She insisted she did not have alcohol, but we know addicts are liars. The program refused her a scram bracelet, but the judge ordered it. The scram bracelet is better than urine test for alcohol and results are immediate, not a week or two later to allege use. Turned out that she was not using any alcohol. What is up with that. Are tests wrong? are they being switched?

You know what would be helpful? The NR should investigate this "miscommunication" and report back. Then we'll have some idea as to how to prevent thugs from abusing the system.
