AA? He's had his chances and made his choices. Time for this guy to do hard time. He can attend AA in jail for something to do.

Where is the punishment, when they go in and out of jail so quickly? We need to bring back the chain gangs. Maybe that might get these people to think about what they are doing and that it isn't worth it. The guy that has had several DWI's should not be allowed to have a car, period. It isn't safe for anyone else on the roads, with him driving. And I agree with Joe. Why was this man not in prison for a long time? Ct. is much too soft on criminals.

It's too bad they closed Camp Hartell,which was probably the only chance this poor sap had to see the light. It was cheap,effective & kept people like him away from the murderers & rapists. Any thing that Corrupticut can do wrong,it will do wrong.

in connecticut, public drunkeness is an ILLNESS. whether your driving, assaulting, publically urinating, etc,etc,etc, more often than not you get a break.

I'm afraid this is a problem not only here but nationwide. Drunk drivers have special privileges unfortunately. We seem to let them slip through the many loopholes we give them.

Drunk drivers & dopers are probably the only type of criminal that have a chance to be rehabilited,but they serve time like everybody else & come out & do it again. Camp Hartell worked!
