Rochester, NY Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon's mugshot
By Davy V.
If you or I, were to be pulled over by New York State Police for driving while intoxicated, speeding, and having an expired inspection on our vehicle, we would be arrested and taken to jail.
In the morning, after sleeping off our intoxication behind cell bars, appearing quite disheveled, we'd go before a judge, and be arraigned.
But when you're a politician, specifically Deputy Mayor of Rochester, NY, well, things go a little different.
Just ask Rochester, NY Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon who was pulled over by New York State Police Wednesday night around 11:30 p.m. on interstate 490.
Redon, who was drunk, and who according to New York State Police, had an blood alcohol level of .13, nearly twice the legal limit, was charged with DWI, speeding, and driving with an expired inspection sticker on his car.
However, despite Rochester, NY Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon putting innocent lives at risk driving drunk, and speeding, New York State Police extended the Deputy Mayor a courtesy, which would NEVER be extended to me or YOU.
New York State Police issued Deputy Mayor Redon a court appearance ticket, giving him a Stay Out of Jail card, and sparing him from having to spend the night in jail, like any other tax paying citizen.
The fact that New York State Police refused to take Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon to jail, and instead allowed him to go free, still intoxicated, where he could have potentially gotten behind the wheel of a vehicle again, should really come as no surprise.

refused to accept Redon's resignation.
Frankly, I'm surprised New York State Police even charged him at all.
After all, it was New York State Police who gave refused to ticket Reggie Hill, Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren's uncle, personal bodyguard, and chauffeur in January, when they pulled him over for speeding.
According to the Albany Times Union, Hill was driving Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren to New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo's State of the State speech, in Albany, NY, when he was pulled over, by a New York State Trooper for driving 97 miles per hour.
That's 27 miles over the speed limit.
Then, on the return trip from Albany, Reggie Hill was pulled over again, for speeding.
Both times, New York State Police refused to ticket Hill.
In a statement released by Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren Thursday, Warren, who initially lied about the number of times her uncle Reggie Hill was pulled over on her trip to and from Albany, gave a typical politician's damage control comment.

"While I am very disappointed in this turn of events and the Deputy Mayor's lapse in judgment, I have accepted his apology. Leonard Redon is a valued member of my team who is doing good work on behalf of the people of Rochester. I know he is sincerely regretful for the embarrassment he has caused for the city, for me and for himself and will take steps to assure that it never happens again."
Warren added, "There is an important lesson for everyone here," she continued. "Drinking and driving is never an acceptable choice. It puts everyone in danger," she concluded.
Let's break down Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren's comments.
"Lapse in judgement..."?
Mayor Warren do you mean when Deputy Mayor made several conscious decisions?
Like, drink alcohol then get behind the wheel?
Like speeding and putting innocent lives at risk?
And Mayor Warren let's cut the bullshit here, what are you really disappointed in?
The fact that Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon got caught?
