"12 hours from bottle to throttle" unless you profess to be an alcoholic, in which case please wait "72 hours from bottle to throttle." That is what I have preached since 1983, when the Los Angeles Times printed my letter to the editor criticizing the CSC decision in Burg v. Municipal Court, and then again in the Los Angeles Times Magazine in August 1992 http://articles.latimes.com/1992-08-0...
But our laws don't proscribe driving after drinking, the proscribe driving after you drink too much and define too much alternatively as .08% or more and 'under the influence', hence it is not illegal to drink and drive.
On Denunzio Beats Phlebotomist in Fourth Amendment Challenge

Oh Lawdy, Wrong again, and on both counts.Still trying cases in court, in fact I'm in the middle of a jury trial right now in front of Judge Brian Hill. Come on Monday and introduce yourself and watch the trial.

It's hard to imagine a journalist writing about the DeNunzio case without mentioning the unprovoked senseless beating and repeated tasing (14 times, including in the genital area), but Mr. Welsh found a way ;-)
He also neglected to point out that Mr. Michaels is a contract employee of the Santa Barbara District Attorney, whose office is sworn to uphold and protect the constitution. This is a critical fact considering that after listening to the recording, Judge Wu understood that the DA employee was acting as a co-conspirator with the law enforcement thugs (Tudor and gang wearing their colors - where is our 'gang injunction') who proceeded to deliver a second beat down in the privacy of the jailhouse blood room otherwise known as 'the little house of horrors' where Michaels (the DA vampire) works (he sleeps in a coffin trailer, only to be arroused in the midnight hours to suck blood for his Master).
Once again, I point out that it would be great if the Independent would post the sound file to this article. If they don't do it this weekend, I will figure out how to put it into the cloud and post a link in this comments section. You, the public need to be able to hear what really happened.

Oh, and the article also fails to make clear that the guy who helped the police violate the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution (Lessor J. Michaels) is a contract employee of Joyce Dudley, the Santa Barbara District Attorney. I even provided Nick Welsh with a copy of the contract. Imagine, the chief prosecutor of the County, who has an ethical obligation to uphold and defend the Constitution directly employing someone to do the opposite.

You don't know the half of it. I provided the Independent with the audiophile of the entire blood room incident (which Judge Wu had) to attach to the online article so the public could judge for themselves, but so far, they have neglected to give you that information. The article also fails to state that DeNunzio was found NOT GUILTY of being .08% or higher, and Nick Welsh purports to quote me as saying: "we are talking Millions and Millions" when in reality it is a paraphrasing. The question Nick asked me was: "what are his damages", to which I responded: "the cost of his medical treatments, his lost wages, compensation for 3 years of no drivers license based upon the provable lie that he refused to take a test (the recording proves he didn't refuse, but the police concealed it until over a year after the DMV relied upon their collective and conspiratorial and perjurious testimony of refusal) the cost of his legal defense against the false and illegal criminal prosecution, and any punative damages, which could conceivably be several million dollars."

Why is a member of the Chumash tribe being given a public defender at county expense? I know many on here will say I want the business, and to be clear, yes, I would take the money and the case, but it's YOUR tax dollars that are being squandered.
On Driver in Deadly DUI Crash Was Allegedly Huffing

Notwithstanding Brown v. Brown, Joyce Dudley is seeking re-election and has no official opponent. Initially Josh Lynn ran against her, but the voters were duped into electing the inferior candidate. Consider this letter to the editor of NP by Santa Barbara Dr. William Santoro, MD:The official voting guide for the upcoming election lists no competition to Joyce Dudley for the office of District Attorney. There is, however, a line for "other."
I am not thrilled with the performance of the D.A.'s Office. While they cannot (or will not) get a conviction of anyone of prominence, they seem to go out of their way to prosecute ordinary or less enfranchised residents, like the truck driver who lost control of his vehicle coming down the grade on Hwy. 154.
I suggest we fill in the "other" line with the name of Joshua Lynn, who dared to run against Ms. Dudley last time and lost not only the election against her but also his job in her office.
