  1. This doesn’t make any sense at all. It’s like cops telling a thief don’t break into this store tonight because we’re going to be there and catch you.

    1. They have to tell when they are having them. Its a constitutional law that requires them to announce it or it’s considered entrapment.

  2. Most people planning on getting messed up and driving around tonight don’t really read the news much anyways I’d say…
