Breathalyzer Device Is Racist
Breathalyzer Device Is Racist, Lawyer Says
Lawyer: Test Unfairly Rates Black Men's Lung Capacity

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A lawyer representing a man charged with drunken driving has claimed Connecticut's breathalyzers discriminate against blacks.
Attorney James Ruane represents 40-year-old Tyrone Brown, of Norwalk, who was arrested April 9 by Connecticut State Police on Interstate 95 in Fairfield.
In a motion filed Tuesday in Bridgeport Superior Court, Ruane asked a judge to suppress his client's breathalyzer test results.
He contends the device used by state police and most local police departments, the Intoxilyzer 5000, discriminates against blacks.

Hey, numbnuts, BAC is not based on lung capacity! Using this knucklehead's theory, people with asthma or any lung ailment / deficiency would not be able to take the breath test. I'd say this attorney's attempt at absolving his client of responsibility is racist in and of itself.The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

Is this news to anyone? I thought it was commonly accepted that anything (inanimate objects included) that could possibly show an african american in a bad light, as a criminal, etc. was racist and adversely targeted blacks. Therefore, they should not have to face the consequences of their actions.

Actually had a hispanic female claim that to me last year. After some questioning, she admitted that her attorney encouraged her to say that after her last DUI arrest . . .
