Toss his A** into prison and throw away the key. He has more than proven he's never going to change.

But then the scumbag will cost taxpayers money for upkeep.
Why not just take him out back and shoot him?

Better still, put him in a Chevy on the border, full tank of gas, gallon of his favorite booze in the passenger seat, wish him well, and pull the car into drive..........

We may as well get some entertainment value out of this..... No? Too Harsh?

Actually, we should strap the Judge who let his ass out of this 21 times to the hood of the Chevy before putting it into drive. No sense in letting only ONE of the guilty go free, right? Too harsh, I know....... Oh well..........

I wonder if anyone has more DWIs in NM? Or how many others have double digits? That would be interesting. Why doesn't the news cover that type of angle on the problem? Maybe it would put some of us into such shock that we'd fear for our lives the next time we drive the streets.

While I think the dude should be boiled in oil don't you have to actually be driving/behind the wheel to be convicted of *driving* under the influence?

shouldn't he be dead already with a BAC that high? i think someone needs to recheck the .393 because that seems way too high for any living human. that would be like walking around with a 150 degree fever.

This guy needs to be stopped from drinking permanently since he doesn't seem to learn from all his priors. I think in situations like this a tattoo on his forehead like the ghostbusters but with a beerbottle instead of the ghost inside the slash circle would be appropriate, could alert stores that it's illegal to sell to him or for people to give him alcohol. If anyone thinks this is cruel consider how many times he could have killed someone with this alcohol level driving all them times. Heck maybe tattooing stupid people like this for multiple DUI's would not only stop them from drinking, it would also make others think before taking up the habit for fear of being tattooed.

Not uncommon for an alcoholic to have a bac that high or higher. That guy is probably never below a .08. Seems unlikely to you becuase your not an alcoholic.

They will keep allowing him to drive until he kills someone, then what? He will probably still not serve any jail time. Sad to say that the best thing to happen would be for him to drive drunk again, smack into a tree and kill himself, BEFORE he kills someone else.

This guy has a problem, you wouldnt know because I assume you all live charmed lives, I agree he should be punished BAD. But at this point he CAN NOT STOP. They should take away his driving privlidge and put him into treatment, and then then maybe caine him. He is a bit of a douche

THIS IS AN INJUSTICE!!! WHY...does a drunk get soooooo many chances b4 the book is thrown at them. This happens TOO often in York County as well.. EVERYONE KNOWS not to drink & drive.
