He killed two people and gets 12 years in prison. You have got to be kidding me. Killings like this should be considered murder-lock this loser up for life.

In the future please do not label this type of criminal as a man-a correct label might be "male individual" or "adult male"-a man takes responsibility for his actions and acts responsibly.

Wow 12 years at 85% for killing two people. Judge Kippeman is brilliant. When is the next judicial election? UNBELIEVABLE.

That is ridiculous. As long as pansy-ass judges like this let criminal offenders off the hook with crackerjack sentences, idiots will continue to drunk and drive and innocent people will continue to die.

If those were my Parents or Grandparents who were runover by a DUI Repeat offender , my outrage would be so out of control that I would probably kill the guy myself and go to jail for much longer than what this guy got.

Why was he still driving only two days after another damage causing DUI? He should have been under surveillance and busted without bail the moment he touches a car.

Did I read that right? Two days earlier he totaled his car and was busted for DUI? Good grief. In my mind there are multiple accessories to his ultimate crime of murdering two innocent victims. The police who released him after the initial DUI and whatever family member or friend enabled this loser to get behind the wheel of another vehicle.

I want to know how, since he totaled his car two days' previous, he got another car so fast?? Whoever gave him that car should also be in jail.
