She should have hung from the gallows. I don't drink and drive, there is always a dd involved. You know damn well what you are doing when you have been drinking and you get behind the wheel of a 2000 lb piece of equipment. If you kill someone while you are drunk it should be murder 1 because YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!!! Under this line of thinking, I could get drunk, walk into a bank, rob it blind, shoot the teller and only get 6 years. It is the same thing.

There are a million people who drink and drive, they dont intentionally try and wreck/kill anyone. Some of the people are even your innocent friends. BTW im proud of the person who hasnt drank in 8 years WHOOHOO but you look like a moron saying you were at the bar. Your one of those people huh, lets see whos at the bar so I can bash them on Topix.com , yea sounds like YOU need to grow up. Alcohol is LEGAL!!! She is the one living with this ACCIDENT for the rest of her breathing days and that would be torment enough for anyone, even her bitch ass! Bashing her isnt helping anyone or anything besides yourselves, you selfish fucks! funny thing is, I understand the situation and I dont even like the bitch at all, never have, but you dont see me tearing her up because of it.
I never said it was intentional. However, I did state that she took the risk of it happening when she CHOSE to drink and drive. She did chose to do that knowing the risks she was taking. She is not being bashed by me. I do not know any parties associate with this story, but I do know that a wife and children lost a husband and father. I think it is wrong for someone to be sentenced to only six years for killing someone. She may not have went out with the intent to kill, but she did something that caused it. The whole incident could have been prevented if she had called a friend or a cab to pick her up, instead of choosing to drink and drive.

I knew the family, none of them are to blame. It was her choice to drink and then drive. So she should get a longer sentence. I grew up with the kids. They were there for everyone. But it was an accident. Stop mouthing and just make sure none of your friends or family drink and drive. We can't change what happened. But we can prevent it.
