Re: “Crossing a Thin Blue Line: Cyclist at heart of unusual Pittsburgh police dispute

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."
