Bond has been set at $265,000 for Gene Jones, the drunk driver that killed Detective Wilson.
With Jones' past DUI's and numerous open container violations it makes us wonder if there was something more the judicial system could have done? Could the laws or the sentencing been tougher? Then again it had been five years since the last offense so maybe the system had worked as it should?
Does our department take DUI serious enough, or do we rely too much on the DUI Task Force?
It would be interesting to see a yearly comparison of the task force DUI arrest compared to the uniform division as a whole. Just as interesting would be a comparison our uniform DUI arrest to that of metro agencies.
