The fact that Bradley Thoma intends to sue the city because he believes that alcoholism is a disability is absolutely infuriating. Having been an alcoholic and made the choice to quit drinking many years ago, I can state firsthand that alcoholism is a choice, certainly not a disability.
I see it as being no different than being a drug addict. He knew, just as I did, that that first drink could lead to many more, and certainly some bad consequences.
As if to add further insult, his attorney Bob Dunn, compares alcoholism to someone having cancer. That statement certainly makes you wonder about his qualifications to be a lawyer. I hope the city holds out for a jury trial, as no intelligent jury would side with Mr. Thoma.
