Last year I was issued an unauthorized DUI citation by the second most corrupt organization in South Carolina a.k.a "The Highway Patrol," or "The South Carolina State Troopers."(same thing)
The reason why I say unauthorized is because I passed the field sobriety test and I even cooperated and blew the breathalyzer test down at the Police Station. The cop still charged me with a DUI and I have to fight it with help from my family's money.(I'm not railing against one cop, I've railing against the whole organization here.)
The end result one day will be eventually "not guilty," this I know. But it is coming with a hefty price. That diabolic critter called a state trooper had my car towed that night which costed me $200 in tow fees to get my car back. I spent the night in jail. My mom took out $3000 out of her 401K to pay my lawyer.
(PLEASE READ THIS PARAGRAPH IN ITS ENTIRETY-VERY IMPORTANT)
You want to know the shady part about this business? So many people that have pled guilty to these crimes didn't know any better. [continued below]....
..... Most of them could have gotten a lawyer and won it!! Had I pled guilty to this, I would have needed to pay higher car insurance, gotten SR-22 insurance, paid for provisional driver's license, pay for attending drunk school, and paid the State of South Carolina about $4,000. And plus it goes on my Driver's Record for 7 years!!
The reason I am writing this article is because this has cost me what would have been my dream job. You see, even though this citation will get dropped when you do a criminal background check on me, it shows as pending. Well, recently I would have gotten a job from Charter but they say that pending DUI and kicked me to the curb.
So many people who are getting DUIs don't deserve them!!! Why are COPS so eager to right a DUI and ruin somebody's life!! I wasn't even drunk when I got pulled over. I committed no crime. My only crime was leaving a girlfriend's house at 2:00 AM in the morning. That's right the State of South Carolina has taught its lunatics in the Highway Patrol to target all vehicles out that late at night. The reason the cop gave me in the first place for pulling me over was I supposedly made an illegal lane change.(which I didn't)
PLEASE PEOPLE. Copy and paste this and send it to our congressmen, senators, and government officials!!! We can't allow this police state of a country to get any worse. This is serious. Lives are being destroyed in SC everyday by these horrible DUI citations that aren't true!! For once in our lives, lets try to make a difference.
