Huntington Beach is considering a new tactic against drunk driving: public shaming on Facebook.

After the idea was suggested Monday at a City Council meeting, the city's Police Department is looking into posting the names of suspected drunk drivers on Facebook, said Lt. Russell Reinhart.

There was a judge in California who waas making convicted drunk drivers wear a bumper sticker announcing the fact on their cars. It was later disallowed as "cruel and usuanual," and it humiliated anyone else, like a spouse, who used the car without having been in trouble for anything.

We wouldn't need to resort to Facebook if people would grow some backbones and shun/skeeve wrongdoers instead of writing them fan letters. It works for the Amish!

So do puppy mills and underage drinking. You'd be surprised how many things work for the Amish.

I had a friend who slammed himself into a bridge abutment while he was driving his truck. Small town. He got his name and photo plastered all over the front page of the weekly newspaper for his troubles. And he went to AA because of it. He's been sober for nearly 25 years.

God, I hate FB. Talk about vanity and invasion of privacy.

I do hope they don't go this route.

Hey, I did my fair share of underage drinking (NOT that I advise this but ONLY because the brain is still developing in adolescence - nothing moral going on here), and I did get my two darling Shih Tzus from a breeder in another state. They are over two and happy and healthy.

Don't judge what you haven't done.

Other than this, I DID FB for two weeks and found it narcissistic and self absorbed so I removed my profile. But I tried it anyway.

So I guess you are a fan of animal abuse? Do you know how those poor dogs live in puppy mills? I am sure your dogs are very nice but their mother may be having a horrible life!
Or they ,ay not think that she is producing enough stock and she was shot in the head.

Considering I'm unemployed and contribute monthly on my credit card to the ASPCA AND have my will written up to give to the ASPCA and Humane Society only (except for a couple of small provisions), I guess I'm not a fan of animal abuse. I did not get my dogs from a puppy mill.

Oh, and not that it's any of your business....(and for educational purposes only)

I do believe this is off topic so I won't address it further.

It's not right to shame anyone SUSPECTED of drunk driving.

I agree, Huntington stands to loose some money if a alleged drunk driver beats it in court and sues them. Safer to shame them after the conviction.
