This is absolutely disgusting.

The saddest part is that because was intoxicated, it negates the intent required for a murder charge. However, I don't understand what is unintentional about drinking IN A CAR for 2 hours and then driving away with two kids in the car. Disgusting.

At least this guy will have his own very special place in hell.

Another alcohol related driving death. When will the our courts wake up and send these DUI CRIMINALS to long jail terms? These drivers are murdering innocent people on our roads. Drunken driving is becoming epidemic. Please, punish these people severely so innocent law abiding citizens will not suffer from their selfish criminal acts. DUI offenders do not need breaks, they need to be in prison, so they cannot murder.

This guy should absolutely be in jail for the rest of his life. Didn't anyone in the Chucki Cheese see this guy drinking vodka for 2 hours? Throw the book at him, especially because he is an ex sheriff's deputy who was "dismissed" my guess is because of drinking.

His punishment should be forced labor at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant if they can't do the death penalty

What a shame. But why is this Chicago Police Sgt. living in Skokie? I thought you had to live in the city if you work for the city.

What a bum!! How do you sit in your car and drink while your nephew is inside celebrating? Who is watching over the child in there? This is a sad story and this bum needs to do some serious time.

I changed my mind after reading more comments from the peanut gallery. You all are undoubtedly a bunch stone idiots for your comments. What the hell does this have to do with the article? There is no humor in a tragic death of a young person and the judgement of an adult alcoholic.

No mercy for drunk drivers. He should be horsewhipped in Daley Plaza, tarred, feathered, then shot. Leave his body for the crows - er, pigeons - to feast on.

wow - that is sad - how can you just sit and drink like that and then drive with kids in the car? I can see driving drunk and that's horrible - but kids with you brings it to a new level

Why bother with suicide watch? Can't we just let him off himself, and save us the money and time wasted on a trial and incarceration?

I feel sorry for the old guy. I'm sick of the holier-than-thou responses on here. Everyone wants to cast the first stone around here. It's an old man taking the kids to Chucky Cheese for chrissakes. He thought he'd have a few nips in the car and he went too far. Huge, negligent mistake. Those of you throwing rocks at him have done far worse or you wouldn't be so compelled to be offensive. Either that or your tiny world is nothing but blogs and internet rants to the point of not relating to the human race.

No where in here do I find anyone feeling sorry for the family. This poor family must be devastated.

My prayers go out to them.

If you are part of the human race there are millions very happy not to relate to your skewed thinking.

you feel 'sorry' for this man?? he drinks heavily in the middle of the day and apparently has open liquor in his car and then tends to children??? you need to get on your knees and thank God it wasn't Your child needlessly dead. excusing horrible behavior is why we, as a people,are rotting from the inside out. no morals, no respect for ourselves or others, no discipline of any kind. sad.

I had no idea that Chucky Cheese served liquor. That seems strange.
