Because she blew a blood alcohol level of nearly 0.40, police procedure is to take the accused to a hospital, as that level is considered extremely life-threatening.
Why would medical professionals knowingly release a patient despite the knowledge she had life-threatening levels of alcohol in their body? Assuming they didn't diagnose her of the auto-brewery syndrome right away, you would think they would at least keep her overnight for observation.

No, you haven't. You read it on a history book.
The process that led to the rise of the Third Reich could be, in part, attributed to a tired and fearful populace. At the time, they needed someone to tell them where to direct their frustration for the economic downturn following World War I. Hitler was that someone. He gave them a singular entity to fear. And you know what? People bought into the narrative.
All our communication is logged with the juicier bits handed to law enforcement. Sorry, kid, but that's the very definition of tyrrany.
Just because Americans are daft enough to fall for smoke and circuses - eg, pointlessly carrying on about drones, the TSA - does not mean they have not and are not living with tyrrany.
If America was supposedly becoming a tyrannical state, it would be because America is marching towards becoming a tyrannical state by choice, not by the cunning action of a shadowy dictator. A choice made by voters unwilling to educate themselves on the issues and candidates, voting for candidates that bring the most bacon home to their district. That's why people like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump continue to lead several public opinion polls. Everyone has iPhones and iPads, but I'd wager the vast majority of the voting bloc do a great disservice to themselves by not vetting out their chosen candidates, despite access to near limitless information they could sift through. Tyranny by choice is not tyranny.

Make the fine a (large) percentage of their annual gross revenue.
And what makes you think Verizon would *let* you do that? The telecom industry has very, very powerful friends in the FCC and congress.
