QUOTE OF THE DAY: Accentuate the just

_Quote Just as justice demands primary emphasis on recognizing the good, so public policy must primarily be formulated to make life for the good and the innocent possible. Dealing with criminals [and drunks] is a secondary issue.

"...public policy must primarily be formulated to make life for the good and the innocent possible."

So it's OK to target drink-driving after all? Make your mind up.

I recommend reading and digesting all of what's quoted. Not just the bits you understand.

For drunk-driving or any other crime, there has to be positive evidence that a crime has been, or will imminently be committed. You couldn't have laws, echoing the immigration position, which would simply say: everyone has to stay off the roads in case they're drunk.

Setting aside the typical snideness of your comment, how do you digest something you don't understand? Besides the rest of the quote, for what it's worth, simply reinforces the position that protecting the innocent from drunk drivers is appropriate.

"You couldn't have laws, echoing the immigration position, which would simply say: everyone has to stay off the roads in case they're drunk." Correct. So what?
