What I am, is someone who understands that you don't put innocent people in jail and mess up their lives out of FEAR. I know people who have been innocently caught in that "system", and it's a bloody nightmare.

Innocent? How are they innocent?

These people kill 17,941 or innocent people per year, and you think putting them in jail is wrong?

Tell me what your real agenda is.

I really don't think that'll help, mainly because those that are already intoxicated are already not of sound-mind and are not thinking about penalties

Um, people aren't drunk 24/7. All intoxicated individuals were, at one point, sober individuals who were of sound-mind and should have been thinking about the consequences of their actions. That they chose not to consider the consequences of their actions is no reason to let drunks get a free pass to do whatever, as you appear to be implying.

This is especially true if they are repeat offenders. A person who gets drunk for the first time might be excused for acting out, but an experienced drunk should know how to make decisions while still sober.

Perhaps because they are not those assholes, as you imply?

They could have done much more harm with access to credit card information, like transfering money to many dubious locations.

So they just gave you time to think about your game consumption, and the opportunity to think about the "silent" in silent night.

The burglar only stole half my stuff. Must be an ok guy.

Parts that positively cannot be assembled in improper order will be.
