This is not a personal attack to Joe or to any of you that have done it. It happens everyday. Somebody, somewhere, is drunk or have had one too many and is behind the wheel of a vehicle right now.

Here is the thing. Lets just say he had caused a wreck and taken someones life. Not only has he caused pain to the victims family and friends, he has to go through life knowing that he killed someone. Everytime someone looks at him, they will know he killed someone. I hear all of this "Some of you are cast the first stone, people", BS. No, I have not gotten behind the wheel after drinking. I know first hand what it can lead to.

Don't tell me that this was just a little slap on the hand situation. He, just like everyone else; with or around him, knew he was drunk and shouldn't have driven. No one had the balls to stop him, Joe included. Thats the problem.

I wonder if he had killed someone one if most of you would be saying "Give the guy a break"? Be pissed at me all you want for my stance on this. I'm just greatful that no one was hurt/injured/killed.
I like Joe Morgan, I really do; especially the fact that he worked his way to an opportunity; that said, I Have Just One Question -

Why does it take the Death of a Child, A Mother, and/or A Father for Drinking and Driving to have Consequence?

All I did was give an example of what "Could" have happened. I will go a re-read what I wrote, but I don't think I said he should be punished for what "could" have happened. I just don't agree with the "This isn't a big deal and Give the guy a break".

I'll ask this for everyone who has gotten a DUI/DWI.

Did the Judge and DA give you a break? If not, how big of a deal was it to you?
My intent wasn't to paint a picture that you wanted stiffer punishment on a "could of." However a lot of people do walk that rope.

I am not trying to make a lesser deal than what it is. There are however statements about this being a possible "problem", which it isn't. A DUI is not a problem where he gets drunk and beats on women etc... If you get my meaning. Seriously we have people talking about a damaged career.

As far as punishment, Morgan will receive punishment from two entities which is twice as much as normal folk. The legal system will punish him accordingly, and then the league will hammer him also.

I received zero favor in my DUI and the DA was related to me. I didn't ask for it either, I did the crime.... I payed my price.

That being said, we all know one cat on his third DUI that not in jail and still driving.... And that is F-up.

We are cool and zero disrespect was intended.

Peace

Because laws are reactive. We are innocent until proven guilty, and we are punished for the act committed, not what could have happened.

When a death is involved in a DUI normally manslaughter charges are brought against the offender also.

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

Joe will survive this. And I agree that he is going to get double if not triple the punishment of the normal person. He will get the Law, the NFL and the Saints. I hope he learns a lesson from this and moves on. Just a little wiser though.

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

When I've seen him interviewed he seems like a pretty sharp kid. Maybe the Saints could rough him up a little and then throw him back in the mix.

What's done is done. Thank heavens he at least pulled over and no one was hurt. The kid's already forfeiting two game checks according to NFL policy. Hopefully he learns, with a little help from Sean and he becomes the Saint he can be.
