    I often wonder how many police who arrest people everyday for DUIs, have gotten away with one because their colleagues let them get off when they pulled them over. I’m sure more than get arrested by their colleagues.

    I see everyone talking about Tairn miller, but I dont see anyone saying about what she or her husband have done for the comunity. She is a verry devoted officer to her job (I wont defend the dui) she has been on alot of calls of mine and she is always wanting to help others. When there is a talk about gangs she is the one that is sent because she knows her stuff. I have been through the cit. ac. and the crime free program and she gave the talk at both.she has arrested indiduals on just the style of tagging they have done. I know she did wrong and I don’t meen to make light of it, however we would lose such a valuable officer if she was discarded from her job. I also know her husband and he is another fine officer and only hope that they can endure this publicity on her verry painfull and embarising ordeal.

    Mandatory DUI penalties! Talk about presumption of Guilt! How long before this is the case every time? Scary!!!
    I bet this officer does not like life now, thinking the Intoxilyzer had to be off… Guilty until proven innocent is not a good place to be. Can you say Karma?
