why in the hell is our justice system so one sided.... We sentence our own citizens for crimes on people who we protect who are illegally in this country.

Obviously there are 2 sides to this story. The reported and unreported facts to this tragic accident.
If you believe everything published in the biased
Columbus Dispatch, you need a reality check.
We all make mistakes everyday and unfortunately a life was taken in this accident.
Take a long hard look at your self before passing judgements on an individual you do not know.
God knows the truth.

The way I feel about it, if you kill someone & are convited of that crime(guilty)you don't go to death row & live out your sentence with free room, clothes, & food that us tax papers pay for. You get Put to death(an eye for an eye)! Shouldn't matter who you are. If you want to drive drunk, texting, go over to the middle east & replace a few soliders & kill the enemy just like that person you killed.

You must pass around the plate if you ever saw me in a church. I have no idea why you mentioned church, unless your texting while sitting behind me in church. I sit outside the church property & watch all you sinned jesus freaks begin texting as soon as your off church property. Oh, did you give your 10% last Sunday?

Anyone happen to notice her priors? Lot's of speeding tickets, and running a stop sign! Seems to me she thought she owned the road! Too bad she is only serving 5 yrs. Lets hope she will never be back on the road again..she doesnt deserve a drivers license.
