I think creating a paper trail of their dangerous behavior is a good thing since it might influence a busy prosecutor to take the time to deal with one of these clowns before someone is seriously injured or worse.
The "Good Doctor" has given us a prescription to get the worst of the worst off the roads.
More likely than bias is it is EXACTLY what it appears to be "bad people-thugs" are more likely to do "bad things"
Best predictor of future behavior is PAST behavior.
Thugs don't limit themselves to slapping around their girlfriend boyfriend step kids
as the kids I occasionally teach say "some people don't know how to act right "
They get away with violence and threats of violence-it works to some extent-for them-
Jailing them- doesn't work-they continue to do the same stuff
only thing that works is age-they get too old to be bullies/criminals
Unfortunately-guns and cars-allow bullies thugs to remain thugs well past their prime thug years.
