I don't think Gordon House should ever be allowed to have another drivers license.. Who knows, he may get another headache and kill someone else..

I hear you. The Parole Board can make you walk with one foot if they choose to.

A child molester is treated with more dignity - all they have to do is submit an address when they move.

Our judicial system is broke and it needs to be fixed.

I think what Crissy is saying is why moniter his alcohol consumption? He should not be drinking at all.

I think what the article meant to say was monitor him for drinking. I think what they do is check the urine, depending on the case, from 3 times a week to once a month. If you have any alcohol showing, you have violated your parole, and will be sent back to prison. In his case, I would bet it would be 2 or 3 times a week. This would be my guess.

Wow, they didn't bother monitoring it while he was in lock up?

.....what happens in the Pen stays in the Pen.

There should be an outside agency, possibly through the Department of Justice, that randomly drug tests prisoners and guards - that's my point.

The prison system and Parole Board here in New Mexico are so corrupt, it is unconscionable - and very, very profitable.

You remember the riots in Santa Fe?

Like I've said before, word on the street - that's solid.

This so called man SHOULD NOT EVER BE LET OUT OF PRISON! He killed four people and disabled a man! He received 22 years for murder of four people. What is wrong with the judges? He should have been put to death. I cannot believe he is going to be let out just to do it all over again. He CHOSE to drink and CHOSE to drive. I think anyone who kills someone after a DUI should be put to death. Any one who hurts a person after a DUI should get life in prison! I am sick and tired of these alcoholics getting out to just hurt someone again. I DO HOPE that this man and others who have done the same thing get killed "by accident" because we sure as hell do not need then in society!
Be nice!

I don't imagine they were worried that he may be drinking and driving while he was in prison, but then on the other hand, I have no idea is they were or weren't monitoring it.

Gordon Paid the price? Maybe, he paid what the law
dealt out but for slaughtering an entire family, like he did, accident or not, he should never walk teh streets again

Plus he fought tooth and nail to stay out of jail. to me that is not showing remorse. he probably had Ray Twohig his attorney, like every other scumbag in New Mexico does
