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.

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.

Who was it that was involved in the wreck I don't guess I heard about it.

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.
