Alcohol claims more victims

An Atlanta police officer dies when hit by a young woman police say was drunk.

Atlanta Officer Gail Thomas

Police say Atlanta Police Officer Gail Thomas was just gettig out of her cruiser to help another officer work an accident.   A passing motorist struck and killed her.  Officer Thomas’ colleagues, friends and family are mourning the passing of the 15-year veteran officer.  Ironically, the accused is about the same age as Officer Thomas’s college-enrolled daughter.   Now in the Fulton county jail is 22-year-old Chasity Jones of Stone Mountain.  Jones is a waitress-model.

Police say Jones blew an alcohol level of .16, twice the legal limit for DUI  in Georgia. I’ve covered so many alochol related stories of lost, ruined and damaged lives.  Why, oh why, do we continue to glamourize and drink the stuff?
