Officer Luncinski puts in many extra hours to earn that "excessive" court time. How many other officers will give up their Friday and Saturday night (day off) nights to work a DUI check point? I would like to get feedback about how the MADD members feel about dismissing the importance of DUI arrests - or for that matter, someone whose life has been permanently adjusted by a drunk driver killing or injuring a member of their family. .08 is there for a reason and impairment should not be taken lightly. Officer Luncinski's "excessive" court time involves other than DUI cases - her diligent police work and testimony have helped put away several long-term sex offenders and violent actors. I would tend to put more credence into remarks regarding Officer Luncinski's work ethic made by one of her supervisors who should know the real Officer Luncinski - not someone who admiditly doesn't know her but bases his opinion on his experience as a retired 30-year veteran. There are many lumps on the force, unfortunately. She hasn't "just worked a patrol car in a zone" her entire career - she has worked in plain clothes and done detective work as well. But what is wrong with "just working a patrol car in a zone" - good officers do that, too. She does that by choice. Many officers have been killed or injured "just working a patrol car in a zone."
