WaPo Joins The Movement

The Washington Post has joined the fight against the madness - in this case, MADDness, to be precise. An op-ed titled "Zero Tolerance Makes Zero Sense," Radley Balko (a conservative, of course) points out the ferocity with which law enforcement can crack down on underage drinking:
A couple in Virginia was recently sentenced to 27 months in jail for throwing a supervised party for their son's 16th birthday, at which beer was made available. That was reduced on appeal from the eight-year sentenced imposed by the trial judge. The local MADD president said she was "pleasantly surprised" at the original eight-year verdict, and "applauded" the judge's efforts.

How can rational people fight back? One way is to deny these crusaders the moral high ground. If you ever find yourself in the company of someone from MADD, do something, anything, to make your displeasure with them felt. Say something - make some comment about their Stalinist organization and your disapproval of it. By God, at least don't ever make a contribution or support any institution that supports them. Fight back!

Another example of a good idea gone bad.
MADD is an insane organization that is "drunk" on it's own publicity to the point that it loses it's credibilty, ala the John Walsh broad brush.
No doubt people get killed as a result of drunk drivers but the approach taken by MADD is so simplictic that it defies explanation.
Parents are responsible for the education and upbringing of their kids. They are not and should not be responsible for everything their kids do.
