WATCH: Cops confront Chiefs LB Jovan Belcher hours before 'murder-suicide,'

      Police in Kansas City confronted killer/football star Jovan Belcher just hours before he killed his girlfriend and then killed himself.
      The encounter was on a city street where Belcher was asleep behind the wheel of his parked car. After learning he was a Kansas City Chief, officers let Belcher go into a nearby apartment building where he said his "girlfriend" lived.
       Lot of NY residents a little tipsy but sleeping in their parked car know the drill when you are not an NFL player.

There was a time when most benign encounters with intoxicated drivers would have resulted in a ride home for the offender. Today pressure from the public on the politicians controlling how laws are enforced is responsible for this change in policy.Celebrities,clergy, medical professionals and politicians are still treated differently, as long as their behavior does not reach a critical tipping point making harsher measures obligatory.There is no remedy that will end this special treatment. No one wants to be in a hospital bed and have someone walk in who you have given a ticket to and celebrities and clergy have friends in political office with enough power and influence to ruin an officers career.

Sounds like what almost happened with the COW PD a few short years ago..........................

Nah...the COW PD was responding to domestics and turned a blind eye. This was just a guy sleeping in his car that got a pass.

Sorry Guys, what you are saying is BS. So some get treated differently than others. It happens in all walks of life. But the DWI laws have been tightened not simply because of political pressure, but as a result of people being killed by idiots who have no concerns for the safety of others. They drink irresponsibly, then destroy people. If only they could simply destroy themselves. Sorry Boys, crying about unequal law enforcement just doesn't cut it anymore. We the people have demanded that our roads be mopped of people who don't respect others, and our officers are doing just that. And 11:52, would you like to explain to us what a "benign encounter with an intoxicated driver" is? Is that when he kills someone else's son or daughter and not yours? You're an idiot. Grow up.

12:21, you have some growing up to do yourself.
The fact in life is that bad things happen and you want someone to blame.
The DWI statistics are far skewed by idiots such as yourself that they are meaningless. Look at the headline:

So desperate to blame alcohol and so disappointed when you cannot. Such is the case in every vehicle fatality. In the vast majority of "alcohol was a factor" MV accidents, the factor is not significant.

Speeding, following to close, driving with inadequacy sleep, are all just as deadly as DWI. but it is hard for you to be so sanctimonious and pass zero tolerance for that because there is no MADD speeding chapter.

11:13 A fine attempt at extracting your head from your ass. No one said other dangerous behaviour is not, well, dangerous. What was responded to was a childish, stupid, and selfish attempt to downgrade the importance of sweeping the roads of dumbasses, like yourself, who think DWI is no big deal. I realize now that you took this personally. Ooops. You try to support your pablum by stating the laws aren't always enforced fairly. Tell us what laws are, Mr Dufus? Imperfect situations don't negate the need for trying to make our road safer for those who, unlike you, don't make excuses for putting others in danger. I think our law enforcement people are doing a good job saving lives. I don't agree with some of the policies, such as roadblocks and such, but to make BS excuses as you do won't cut it anymore. Have a drink, asshole. Just don't drive drunk. If you do, I hope its your own daughter you kill and not someone else's.

I drank and drove twice a week for years and never killed anyone. It was 1.1 legal back in those days. And every bar had a parking lot for cars that would likely do the same thing every night. Find a new boogie man. All the real science shows that it is higher levels of drinking or else falling asleep that accounts for most all alcohol fatalities.

You might not of said it but society said other dangerous activities are not, well, dangerous. They said it when they passed zero tolerance laws for DWI but left the slap on the wrist laws in place for every other deadly activity.

Here we go again. What is your source for "all the real science"? What is factual is fewer people are dying because of DWI enforcement. The fact that you didn't kill anyone with your drinking and driving stupidity makes us all very proud of you. Seek out some people who have killed people with their DWI ways. They aren't quite as smug as you.

The guy that calls people idiots and tells people to grow up is now calling others smug? That is precious.

The real information is out there if you cared to look. You would not need to see any statistics if you read the news with any critical thinking skills. You don't care because you are too sanctimonious and...smug.

You don't need to be a statistician to note that DWI is still legal up to the randomly selected BAC of 0.08. If DWI were as dangerous as the MADD idiots would have us believe then it should be Illegal to drink even one drink and drive.

And don't give me all the credit, you forgot to congratulate the other millions of people that drink and drive without killing anyone.

I concede. Driving while intoxicated is safe. You da man. Carry on, 10:42.

Life is tough. Life is tougher when you're stupid. Get help.
