Drunken driving can not be condoned under any circumstance and the full weight of the law should fall on the guilty driver.
Notwithstanding the above, this was bound to happen sooner or later, cyclists and cars have no business sharing the same roads. The number of cyclists riding on Rickenbacker causeway ignoring the cycling lanes and occupying the roads reserved for cars, running red lights, cutting across traffic endangering themselves is the root cause of the problem. Cyclists should be banned from riding on high speed roads. Period.

Gonzalo is a moron. The causeway is not a high speed road. The man was killed by a typical Miami scumbag drunk driver.

I wish people like him (sociopaths) would get off the roads here in Miami, however, that's wishful thinking. The sociopathic reckless drivers who speed, tailgate and run red lights are far more dangerous than a few cyclists here and there. Besides, it's not like there are many places to cycle in this ridiculous city (virtually no parks or trails).

Carlos Bertonatti's version of the song "Perfect Picture" was almost the Theme Song for Kirstie Alleys A & E TV show Big Life.

Carlos performend the song on Kirstie Alley Twitterthon (aquathon 2009) a online charity event.
Ms Alley announced that Carlos' song would be used on the upcoming show during that event.

until the tragedy happened.
when Carlos recklessly took Christophe Le Canne's life.
the people in charge decided to use the song
despite awful tragedy.
instead of finding another song.
the Show had to rush to re-record the song with another artist "Yogi Lonich" to distance themselves from this scandal,..when they should have dumped the song immediately!
whoever made the decision with Kirstie Alley's show,were idiots,more concerned with the TV show than an innocent mans life.

Carlos is set to make a lot of money from the song as it stands,with the association to the TV show.
it stands to reason that every penny he makes from the song,goes to Christophe surviving family members.and not defense lawyers.
