Yeah he's gettin out he did his time, what he did was wrong but he's on parole he's gonna have a tracker up his **** 24/7 until they deem him ready which won't be anytime soon its not like he'll be able to walk out the prison gate and head for the nearest liqour store, do any of you know anyone on parole? After a few months he'll probably want to go back to the pen and finish his time there, they put breathalizers in your house and that's not even the half of it, parole is a trap the very few escape so if you think he's gettin off easy he's not
First of all let me correct you. Parole is when you get out of prison before your entire sentence. You do not have a tracker on Parole you have a parole officer. A tracker is for someone on CCP aka house arrest. People on CCP with a tracker wear an ankle bracelet sometimes a GPS and sometimes have a sobrietor. Depending what the judge deems necessary. These people on CCP has a tracker which are correctional offices for the county jail. People on house arrest are still in custody of the county jail. Just off site. Which is why they monitor it so closely. Parolee's do not get on CCP with a tracker. So yes he will be getting off easy. Parolee's get released to family etc. and have 24 hours to report to their PAROLE OFFICER. People that have trackers (ccp) get picked up by their tracker in jail go straight to the office and get the ankle bracelet put on then the tracker takes the Inmate home and hooks up the monitoring system to the phone line. And now their home becomes their jail. they have curfews, must check in daily, can't leave the house no matter what after their curfews, they have to attend details (community Service) They are on lockdown on holidays etc.... So yes he is getting off easy for killing 4 people

Do we really think that Defensive driving classes can protect us from drunks on the road?? Sure, defensive driving can help, but some things are unavoidable..getting behind the wheel drunk IS avoidable. Besides why should responsible, law abiding citizens be forced to go to defensive driving classes? Why not send the drunks to AA meetings??? Don't worry my intelligence is not insulted.:-)
I'm sure your not a perfect person. I'm sure some where along the way in your life you made mistakes, but refuse to tell the truth so you play the innocent game. But we'll keep it a secret, your just on of the lucky one's that got home safe. Don't you have a life other than talking about gordon house, or do you just talking about other people's life because yours is so messed up that it makes your life look good, if thats the case, that is pitiful. You should focus on positive instead of negative energy.

Because you are driving a 3 ton weapon and you should be trained on how to use it.
That statement sounds premeditated to me. Are you trained? Let me know when you will be on the road so I can stay home.

Premeditated? Ha, ha.

Yeah, genius, every day when I drive to work, I plan to drive safely and defensively.

If you've read my posts, you will know that I have been trained.

Whats next? Maybe we should also let Astorga out after 3.5 years with good time. Maybe he changed his life around. He deserves a chance too. Right???
Only problem is we have an inept DA right now.

Gordon House's investigation and trail didn't take this long.

BCSO & the McGrane family will be lucky if they see Astorga's trial start in the next 3 years.

Brandenburg is an inept baffoon.

Go back and read your post. I still say hahahahahaha. I really don't want to be on the road with someone who knows how to use their three ton weapon. Not once did it say to aviod bad drivers. How about people who text while driving. Not so good. Don't want to be on the roads with them either.

First, you are absolutely right I am NOT a perfect person, wouldn't that be nice... yes I have made many many mistakes in my life, but I can with out a doubt tell you that I NEVER get behind the wheel after having a drink, ever. Cabs and Designated Drivers are the way to go. As far as your comment about me not having a life because I am discussing Gordon House??? Did you by any chance notice the title of this thread?? It is a discussion about Gordon House, and this is a website for disscussing things-geez! what kind of dumb website would this be if we didn't discuss things- that's the point. Not that we don't have lives, because we all do, but we choose to spend some free time in here discussing current events. I hope that's okay with you and all of your "positive" energy.

Minimize---being key here, not preventing. As I've said, Defensive driving is a great thing, but accidents cannot always be avoided. I'm sure many people have taken defensive driving classes and still got in accidents.

You are 100% correct! I for one have had to avoid a head on on I40 before. I was taking my child to the ER late one night in a panic as it was and had a drunk coming right at me. I avoided it. Three cars behind me did not. I have NO tollerance for drunk drivers.

Why is being intoxicated an excuse???? This is all about choices...the choice to drink...the choice to walk to the vehicle...they choice to start the car...the choice to drive on the road. DWI needs to be removed from the traffic code and placed in the criminal code. The minute that someone chooses to put themselves behind the wheel of a ton of metal/plastic...that becomes a deadly weapon. That is just like if you choose to pick up a gun and pull the trigger....you may not intend to kill someone, but you are choosing to put yourself in a situation which has consequences. A DWI fatality is not an "accident"...it is a homicide.

Come on! Blaming the victims?! These people were minding there own business DRIVING on the freeway...and here comes drunken **** House. Were you there??? How in the world do you know if Craven was driving defensively or not? How do you know that he didn't do EVERYTHING in his power to avoid House? He most likely did. I have avoided accidents by driving defensively, but as I would hope you know, sometime you simply CANNOT avoid it! This jerk was DRUNK and on the WRONG SIDE of the freeway----hello!!! What if avoiding House would have caused more people to get killed by involving another vehicle? You DO NOT KNOW! You were not there, so by you spewing advice about "defensive driving" you are making excuses for Gordon House and his ignorant behavior..migrane my ****!!!! He was drunk. Plain and simple and MURDERED a family---lets not forget that....had it been your family, you would be singing a different tune!
Beautifully said!! I totally agree!!
