How's the internal investigation going @ Fridays? Why not a proactive police investigation? Drug dealers go to jail, shouldnt Booze dealers that cause death go to jail? . Allegedly!!! Hell someone that doesnt harm anyone or anything who has over a .08(yet more functional than most drivers) can go to jail?
