Abundant mercy was once again received by this defendant, much more than he ever adjucated during his tenure on the bench. That's my judgement!

Mercy? What happened? Did they sweep this under the carpet again?

I mentioned this recently to my wife, that I've heard nothing else about it, are the newspapers scared of him.

Will they let him keep going until he murders someone?

He surely has shown that he has no respect for the law nor the people in our community.

Amazing, a Steel can do this, even twice and not much is said about it, but you better believe if some of the rest of us did it they would paste it all over both of Nashville's newspapers.

Wonder what they would do to me if I was DUI, involved in a wreck? Them someone says, I saw him out here helping get stuff out of the road, but all of a sudden he was gone. Them when they find me I'm at home in the bed.

By he way, if he has done it twice, he probably is DUI nearly everytime he gets behind the steering wheel.
