Diary of a D.U.I. Victim
About the Book
My brave wife is a victim of a DUI collision, a common tragedy Americans suffer and tolerate. Why? Americans are conditioned by perception management to crave alcohol! The culinary industry insists beer, wine, or a cocktail is necessary before, during, and after a meal. Advertisers feature star athletes and Hollywood celebrities to extoll the youthful pleasure of liquor. College curriculum—drink and be merry. Auto insurance agencies defend the drunk driver. The courts practice a “catch and release” rule of law for DUI crime. Politicians legislate DUI leniency. The public accepts the inevitability and unpredictability of the drunk driver, like a bad weather disaster. DUI victims are crybabies paying slick lawyers to exploit the system for undeserved reward. The truth is American DUI victims suffer, denied justice and restitution for injury. The drunk driver regains the privilege of driving, celebrates with a cocktail. Watching the game, the sport stars hawk a new brew. God bless the highway victims.
