Does Alcohol Make People Crazy?

by: Mike Miller

There is no doubt people do stupid things when they drink alcohol.  All you have to do is turn on Tru TV and watch any one of the “World’s Dumbest…” shows to see how people do especially stupid things when they drink booze.

Child Abuse

You have to wonder how much damage alcohol had done to the brain of one Marla Lemer. The 43-year-old was arrested and charged with felony child abuse and neglect when she knocked her daughter to the floor and pinned her down in an effort to take the money the girl had earned selling raffle tickets for school. Why would a sane mother do that to her daughter? Lemer needed the money to buy vodka!

Total Brain Damage?

The story gets worse. Lemer was set for a preliminary hearing earlier this week and showed up to the court house intoxicated. I am not talking about a little woozy because she mixed Robitussin with Tylenol Cold, I am talking totally soused! Her blood alcohol concentration was .22% - almost three times the legal limit in the state of North Dakota.

Her punishment – Go to Jail – Go Directly to Jail – Do Not Pass Go! Would it surprise you to know that Lemer is on probation for DUI and is not supposed to have or drink alcohol?  I thought not. Here’s a prayer for Mrs. Lemer to give up alcohol and become the responsible adult she signed up to be when she had a child!
