I really think that after a third offense "three strikes your out rule" that repeat offenders pictures be posted in bars and liquor store and refused the sale of alcohol because clearly they have a drinking problem. "But posting their picture and not selling them alcohol could only happen in a perfect world, in which we do not live in."
