Title: Frank Taaffe's Roadside Sobriety Test
Post by: TalkLeft on August 29, 2012, 11:17:24 PM
This video (http://www.orlandosentinel.com/videogallery/72010810/News/Dash-cam-video-Frank-Taaffe-George-Zimmermans-friend-during-DUI-stop) is interesting if you've never seen a roadside sobriety test performed. 

It's from Frank Taaffe's recent DUI arrest (http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-08-29/news/os-frank-taaffe-dui-video-20120829_1_george-zimmerman-trayvon-martin-neighborhood-watch-volunteer).

Florida's open records laws are really over the top.

Taffe seems signifigantly impaired. The police did him a favor by pulling him over, IMHO. As I understand it, Taffe is claiming a prescription reaction. Whatever the reason he appears to be in no condition to drive.

I've participated in a few.

I'm not sure over the top... maybe abused and misused by people with agendas. Anything bad about GZ, his family or friends, is published by the media. We don't see that happening with TM's family or friends. It tells me that the media considers GZ the "offender" and they feel free to show how bad he and everyone around him is. It would be inappropriate to publish the bad things about the "victim's" friends and family.
