SSCC #166 – Vermont State Police

In keeping with my previous post regarding the state monopoly on alcohol and the PSH involved I found the following quite fitting.

A Vermont State Police officer has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence, according to the state attorney general.

He did resign from his job, but he only got a $500 fine.  No time in jail, nothing.  We’re coming up on the holidays and I always remember seeing numerous ads from police agencies about drinking and driving.

The fact of the matter is drinking and driving is bad and he sure as hell knew better.  I have absolutely no sympathy and while he’s no longer employed the lack of a stiff sentence given his position is wrong.

State Sponsored Criminal Count 166: Joshua P. Lemieux

Because drinking and driving is only bad when the person who does it isn’t in law enforcement.
