If you commit a crime while intoxicated in Los Angeles you will likely be sentenced to AA by our local 12 Step Caliphate. Where you will learn that you have a disease and you are powerless to alcohol and likely to get drunk again and commit crimes – ‘relapse’ is expected.
Here is the fabled ‘court card’:
And the judge’s order:
Of course, perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to meet someone at your meeting who will tell you it’s a shame that judges are sending kids to AA but hey it’s better than jail or community service right? and as long as you’re here might as well not leave 5 minutes before the miracle happens and if you still aren’t interested they will gladly sign all the lines just meet them in the park after the meeting.
Don’t believe it? Just head over to your local AA meeting and see for yourself. Admitted criminals and self-professed liars will gladly regale you with their drunkalogs.
