LOL! Make getting drunk and being a life's looser the biggest attraction in CNY.
Send the drunks to prison to support the prison economy.
I guess that's the only way they can have any economy at all up there.
I agree with you that we in CNY live off a prison/govt. economy, but should we do with a person with 5 DWI's?

How did he manage to get a car in the first place? Was it registered and insured? If someone loaned it to him, they ought to face some serious consequences. If there's no law making the person who let him drive liable then we need a new law. This Hammond is more dangerous than a loaded gun.

If prior DWI convictions and the high costs of fines, plus cancellation of his insurance policy leaving only the Assigned Risk available which is sky high in price for just basic coverage, along with prison time - nothing punitive seems to work.

The only suggestion I have to make is perhaps this man needs intensive mental health counseling to find out WHY is he drinking when it leads to this type of life for himself at the tender age of only 29? Something is making him drink besides just the taste of booze - let the mental health people figure out how to help him since the legal system has done everything possible which has not been successful.

I am by no means condoning what this guys doing or how hes placing others in danger, but there are rapists, and kiddie touers who are on probatiobn and dont even see a prison cell, but have a few too many and holy shat lookout ! A public stoning would be less harsh! Look at the fines associated with DWI. Ever see a fine or surcharge like these for a toucher ?

Mr. Hammond + motor vehicle= deadly weapon. Looks like a life sentence might be the only thing to protect society from this very dangerous individual.

The largest menace to "us all" is a government with misguided priorities driven by self serving officials looking to further their own agendas
