    Hypothetical situation

    Hypothetically,


    Lets say you work in a bottle shop; A place where cars drive through, and buy their alcohol, rather then parking their car, and entering the local Safeway liquor shop. – For reasons which will appear below.

    You are the Bottle-shop attendant, you work there every Friday and Saturday, until 8:00PM.

    It is Illegal to serve alcohol to people whom seem to be significantly under the influence of alcohol; or, seem to be obstructive in a general manner; Alcohol or drug affected.


    You notice that approximately 45 % – 50% of the people who drive through the bottle-shop are alcohol affected. Over the 0.5 limit.

    You know that you are not “Supposed” to serve people who seem to be “significantly” alcohol affected. These people are not “significantly” alcohol affected, but you know upon serving these people, they will; soon to be, be, “significantly affected” due to you supplying them with the alcohol for them to get “significantly affected” Yet, you don’t know whether they will drive whilst consuming the alcohol you have supplied them with. - They are over the 0.5 limit upon entering the Bottle-shop, but not “significantly affected” to the point that you cannot serve them.

    If they do, are you supplying them with alcohol when you should not be? – if they get pulled over after they open a few more on they way to their next destination.


    Do you tell your local Police station about the situation that you have noticed has arisen over a peroid of time?

    “Officer Joe Citizen, you know, if you sat out side the local bottle-shop, I’m almost 100% sure you would catch a lot of drink drivers, which would save lives around out local area”

    Do you sacrifice your job to saves lives?


    The word would get around that; Police are waiting outside that Bottle-shop, if we go through, there is a 90% chance they we may get caught, F*&!@ it, we’ll go to Safeway, boys, and get served, we are all p*!@#ed drunk, but Safeway will still serve us if we get a stupid 18 to 21 year old serving us.

    Risking your job, to save lives and risking people never coming back, as they know they will get caught, therefore; costing the business money in result from no cars/people coming through the bottle-shop, therefore, you lose your job due to no cash flow comming from the bottle-shop, which is part of a Major Hotel.

    Or

    Do you keep your mouth shut. Keep your job. And live Happily ever after?

    What would you being a “ Joe Citizen” do, a “Citizen” Soon to be joining the Police Force.

    I've got three thoughts:
    1) You're not telling the police anything they don't already know. They know where the drive-through liquor stores are, where the bars are, etc. If they are there, waiting, nothing happens. It's easier to find a drunk on the street.
    2) You don't know that they are going to chug their Captain Morgan in the car. Most people have routines of sitting down somewhere comfortable to do their drinking, like home.
    3) If you feel strongly that crime is afoot and you are doing nothing about it, this notion (whether justified or not) will probably come out in your police background check or polygraph exam in the future, and you may have to explain why you did nothing, if you thought there was something to do.
    PS: You use too many "quotes". Knock that sh@t off.

    In this case, there is a long allyway where people must exit. The Police, in this case, could sit, unseen, and RBT outcomming cars - I should have been more clear about the situation.


    2)You don't know that they are going to chug their Captain Morgan in the car. Most people have routines of sitting down somewhere comfortable to do their drinking, like home.

    Most people drive through a few times during the night.


    3) If you feel strongly that crime is afoot and you are doing nothing about it, this notion (whether justified or not) will probably come out in your police background check or polygraph exam in the future, and you may have to explain why you did nothing, if you thought there was something to do.

    If the Police already know, in reguards to 1) then, must I refresh them if they know? If not, am I doing something wrong by not telling them about the situation "they already know about"

    Thanks for the Tips MissMyCaprice, just interested in people's response, and how they would handle the situation.
