My state representative State Rep. Rob Briley (D-Nashville) was handed another gift yesterday regarding his most recent DUI trouble. His colleagues have, apparently, overlooked a great deal and now the judicial system has also. He crashed into a citizen, endangered the lives of who knows how many more in his attempt to avoid arrest and flaunted the very laws he helped create. I'm surprised all that didn't result in more severe punishment. Count me among those that believe his political connections, status and name had a great deal to do with this result--likely someone got God's ear also. Regardless, I sincerely hope this is THE wakeup call that does turn his life around. For his children's sake, I hope so.
