After this third DUI he shouldn't be earning anyone's respect, in my opinion.

No kidding. Does he get to keep his job? In many professions, you'd be out. In fact, in California a teacher would lose their credential for just one DUI.

Lots of employers don't want the insurance problems either, same goes for drug offenders. I think it is wrong. Once you have completed your sentence you should not be further punished by making it hard for a person to get a job. That goes for any crime, but that is for another thread.

True, but you got to remember, Parker isn't an airline employee. He is an officer of an airline, the CEO. Two totally different different things. Only he can fire himself OR....the Board of Directors will vote him out. I say he should be a class act and resign. Having a DUI in any manner is unacceptable and unprofessional. It just tarnishes your company's image.

As for how quick it was, he didn't contest the charge. That kinda fast-tracks things.

Does he lose his license? What are the penalties for a third time offender in AZ ?

Most important thing is to keep a repeat DUI'er off the roads ... they're less likely to kill one of the rest of us that way.

(and that goes for ANY repeat DUI'er ... not just those that run major airlines)

No lawyers? You mean like how he refused a breathalyzer test in the field, and then only consented to a blood test after talking to his attorney?

Actually, one of the misdemeanors occurred in 1991 when he was working for American Airlines. Coincidentally or not, that's also the year he left American.

The fact that he had a previous DUI in Texas (back at age 29--in 1991) in all likelihood meant the judge had no choice but to force him into the jail cell for a 24 hour period. Would the HP+US Board force him out? Probably not, but put him on a shorter leash, yes!

No, they wouldn't. A DUI is not a disqualifying or terminable offense for the rank and file. The ONLY ways it would affect someone is if you missed work due to no shows, and in the case of certificated employees, if their certificate or medical was pulled. A ramper might get fired if his drivers license got revoked too, as he can't do his job with no license. You do not get fired at US for a DUI.

This sounds like a problem with California's politically correct culture.

I don't like US Airways or America West Airlines, but some of you people should get the heck off of Parker's back! He blew a .096, just barely over the limit in AZ and not over the limit in many states. Ten years ago or so, this was not over the limit in any state. He did not cause any accidents nor cause any injuries.

But for the grace of god.....

How many of you talk on your cell phones while driving, or eat, or drink, or put on make-up, or adjust the radio... all of which could distract you enough to cause an accident.

132 Post contains images EvilForce : Agreed. I guess we should be glad Mr. Parker wasn't caught in his office having *cough* inappropriate contact with an intern, or the Bill Clinton com
133 D L X : That's simply not true. Alcohol affects different people much differently. Two men at 6'2" 220lbs could easily have dramatically different effects wh
