I'm amazed at the number of people stopped for DUI. Something different needs to be done to stop this. And just in case anybody was wondering if our courts show favoritism to the 'connected' in this state, there's this: Robert A. Watson, 51, of 103 South Pierce Road, East Greenwich, pleaded no contest to possession of marijuana. The charge was filed for one year and Watson was ordered to pay $200 to the Victims of Crime Indemnity Fund. And Joshua Gonzales, 25, of 32 Gardenville Court Apt. 1025, pleaded no contest to possession of marijuana. He was sentenced to pay $250 to the Victims of Crime Indemnity Fund plus court costs. Same crime. Same judge. Different sentences. Typical.
