Jail, probation handed dow in fatal crash (Chico E-R)
I am so upset right now I could just be sick.
I do not care how many letters of support this man or any other killer receives. I do not care how many people they may or may not have helped in their sober life.
Drunk Driving is a choice...it is not a mistake or an accident...and worse...this man had been caught once before (but statistically has done it many times without being caught). He caused the death of a human being...
How many people have to die and be maimed by drunk drivers before the courts and public get it...? How many families and friends lives have to be destroyed before things change?
What happenes when this man...who has been arrested for a DUI once and killed a man, his friend, a different time while DUI...chooses to drink and drive AGAIN...? What happens next time when maybe he kills a stranger...or a child...or maybe a whole family?! Another term of probation and rehab after demonstrating supposed remorse and getting people to write letters?
Remorse does not bring back the dead...His friend is dead just the same as Amit Tandon and the THOUSANDS of other people killed every year because of someone's selfish CHOICE. He may have to live with what he has done...but...he gets to LIVE.
Drunk Driving is a choice....It is not an accident or mistake...People need to be held accountable for their actions and choices...regardless of letters of support or the kind of person they appear to be...those things do not bring back the dead or change what happened.
I am just sick over this...I am tired of reading of more DUIs, more DUI crashes...more death...Enough is Enough!
