Skewed Perspective

Dear Editor,

Your article title is just as backwards as the cops (January 2, 2009, page 8, "Rockaway Man Busted for Driving Drunk").

First of all, Alfred Kenlaw wasn't driving (if it wasn't for his own admittance he could not have been charged). He could have stepped into a parked vehicle.

Second, I believe the District Attorney's office should dismiss the charges.

Alfred Kenlaw should have received a pat on his back. By his own account, he pulled over because, "he could no longer safely operate his vehicle."

If every drunk driver pulled over and stopped as Kenlaw did, thousands of people would still be alive today. Kudos to Mr. Kenlaw.

We should recognize that although his initial decision to drive while under the influence was wrong, his ultimate decision to pull over and stop was the right decision.
