I think that this man has served more than enough time. What he did was not intentional - many of us have driven home while intoxicated, thinking that nothing would happen and then thanking God we made it home safely. I do not believe that he should have gone to prison at all - look at all of the child molesters, armed robbers, wife beaters, drug dealers, etc.... who get away with whatever they have done with nothing more than a warning. I do believe that Nick was punished much more than the crime he committed warranted, and I believe that the reason behind it was to single out one officer in Greece so that the rest of them could continue to commit their illegal and immoral behavior. Yes, I do believe that Nick should have been accountable for what happened - I just think that the punishment he received was way too harsh. This man has a wife and kids to take care of - I understand that the woman he crashed into also has a lot to deal with in regards to her daughter - however if it was a simple civilian who hit her there would have been either very little or no news coverage, and the only compensation she would receive would be from the automobile insurance. I honestly feel bad for her and her family, however I think that they took advantage of the fact that it was a police officer involved and pretty much milked the system as much as they could. As for Mr. Joseph - his life is completely ruined. He will never find a job that he enjoys, I don't know about his family - I just hope they haven't deserted him. What he did could have been done by any one of us - if most of you are honest with yourselves you will admit that you have driven at least once when you have been drinking and should not have been driving.
