So in my town in Southern Indiana, I just heard literally 5 ish minutes ago, that the cops are wanting to get the last bar here shut down,
So they stand outside across the street, waiting. When folks drive off, they send the license plate so they get pulled over. But that's not the worst imo.

They also stop responsible walkers and arrest them for walking while buzzed or drunk.

Is this even allowed?! We had 5 bars in town and slowly but surely the cops did the same song and dance, making it so patrons wouldn't return and the bars would shut one at a time.

I can understand driving.
But walking. Isn't that the best route to take so one doesn't dui and kill another? So walking home now gets them a record and in jail.

O.o

This is why you make sure you are good and sober before leaving the bar. Cops may be dumb sometimes but they know where to find drunk drivers.

drive off the bars and arrest people for walking? i guess they'd rather be dealing with opioid overdoses and meth labs, then. choices!

In northern Indiana we tell the cops where to go.

Voting for mayors and city council seats gets the point across.

There's a good reason I call Indiana "Bandiana"... Even buying E-Juice for mods out of state is illegal. Can't make your own either. As of a few weeks ago (and was just ruled as most idiotic law but was a law for a few years now), only 1 Indiana company was allowed to make juice and all businesses had to buy only from them.
Which created a monopoly.
Which caused tens of thousands to go out of business.
Which gave us vapers no juice choices and differences.

I'm so glad that was finally overturned... Though as of right now we still can't buy juice out of state or make our own.
Stupid Bandiana.

That's terrible.

Thankfully there's a bar on nearly every corner where I live, they can't cover them all and mostly stick around college bars.

Exactly. Drinking and eating is a blast. I love to walk from bar to bar. Having limited options makes it easier for the po-po to be jerks.

I don't know what constitution they follow in Indiana, but stopping a car because the driver simply left a bar, without more, is itself against the law. Once again, not knowing what laws they have in your fair state, walking while buzzed does not seem to be a legitimate basis for stopping a person. Public drunkenness as a criminal law went the way of the Dodo in most civilized states sometime in the middle of last century.

In my state you don't even have to drive buzzed. Put the keys in the ignition and you're going down.

Sounds like someone up high in that town wants to ban drinking. It's not my town so I cannot say anything. If it was my town I would be going out and running for city hall to stop the madness there. A group of people can take over the town and do whatever they want. This is just the start, usually the power goes to their heads.

Leaving the bar driving is reasonable suspicion . Public drunkenness is a law in most states that I know .
Right or wrong.
Where do you get your information ?

This is what I thought as well. It has to be a designated event with a permit, like a beer garden.

Recently the corner store guy told me I could get busted if I didn't carry out my alcohol purchases in a bag. I never knew that!

It's even worse in Britain,simply being in the vehicle whether the keys are in the ignition or not is enough to get you charged.

True in my state too, as long as you put the keys in the ignition on a public way, etc..
