A lawyer representing a man charged with drunken driving claims Connecticut's breathalyzers discriminate against blacks.Should the strategy fail, I suggest seeking a Presidential pardon. Holder and Obama--is there anything they can't do?
Attorney James O. Ruane . . . contends the device used by state police and most local police departments, the Intoxilyzer 5000, discriminates against blacks.
Ruane says research shows that the lung capacity of a black man is 3 percent smaller than a white man and, therefore, black men's test results vary from the sobriety standard set by the device.
