Brickbat: Taking the Long Way Home

Columbus, Ohio, police have charged school bus driver Tia Denton with operating a vehicle while intoxicated. School officials became concerned when Denton was late dropping off elementary school students. They turned on her bus's GPS tracking device and saw she was missing stops. Meanwhile, someone called 911 after seeing her driving the bus erratically. Police say when she stopped Denton had an open container on the bus and blew almost three times the legal limit when they gave her a breath test.

    YOU ONLY WRITE ABOUT THIS BECAUSE IT'S A PUBLIC SERVANT. MILLIONS - MAYBE BILLIONS - OF AMERICANS DRIVE DRUNK EVERY DAY. BUT BECAUSE IT'S A PUBLIC SCHOOL SERVANT, YOU LIBERTARDIANS CHERRY PICK THESE STORIES JUST TO SUPPORT YOUR KOCHTOPUS MEMES.

    This just must be an Ohio thing. (there seem to be a lot of those lately) I'm pretty sure the bus driver I had as a kid was drunk half the time, or high.
