Should Murray Police Department have a bottom line for DUI arrest in order to get their yearly bonus?

Pros:

  1. More hazardous drivers will be taken off the road.
  2. Murray Police will be more observant of our roadways.
  3. Creates more reason for the police to be on their A game.
  4. Fewer accidents will occur leading to fewer lives lost because of drunk drivers.
  5. The general public will be safer.

Cons:

  1. Cops are more likely to become corrupt.
  2. In order to meet bottom lines, cops will make more DUI arrest regardless of whether or not the driver was actually driving under the influence.
  3. Police focus on adding up DUI arrest instead of doing their actual jobs.
  4. It takes their role as protectors and servers, where the people are put first, and turns it into a reward system where police compete to get the most DUI arrest.
  5. Regardless of whether the DUI goes through or not, your license will be revoked and the process to get it back is expensive and is made much harder than necessary.

Murray police should not have a bottom line for DUI arrests in order to get their yearly bonus. Although there are a few benefits, having this bottom line inevitably will just cause chaos, corruption, and a waste of American tax dollars.
