Note To Self:

If I get arrested for DWI, make sure everyone thinks I'm a white judge.

Because while Driving While Black is enough to get you pulled over and even shot in your own front yard in places like Bellaire, driving 92 in a 65, with open containers and smelling like beer isn't enough to support probable cause after a DWI stop. In Cleburne. If you're white. And a judge.

That kind of makes you wonder about "no refusal" programs. If the goods they had on this judge aren't good enough to get a warrant for blood, how can it be that just declining to take a breathalyzer is?
