I look at it like this, he was high on meth and driving and killed his passenger when he wrecked the truck he was driving and murder or at least manslaughter is an approriate charge in this case. He will serve some prison time without a doubt. I know his sister Michelle and nephew and thats the two i feel sorry for.

Im sorry that you don't understand what he did was wrong! Meth is. against the law regardless of when he smoked it. Besides he was not legal to drive the truck. Ire should not have taken so long to charge him. He got another dui recently when he wrecked his truck. Could have killed someone else.

It is sad that you feel that way. I realize you love your father but that meth is illegal. You must be messed up to think these charges are bs. He should have been locked up a long time ago. He got another dui recently when he wrecked his truck. He could have killed someone else!

He has always been a reckless person and everyone knew sooner or later he would end up killing someone or himself in a car wreck.

I know his life story. Known him for years and when I say years that means since before you were concieved. First off I will write with proper grammer it works better that way. Truth is you know him well enough to know what was in his system, and what was always in his system. He needed help way before this. One thing I will tell you is that being on the other side is different than you could imagine. Try losing someone due to another negligence. You don't know that pain. He's still alive his family can visit him. I have to visit mine at the graveyard. Talk all you want but he needs to man up and you need to grow up.

Anyone that is convicted of impaired driving (high, drunk, careless, etc...) and it cost another person their life or ability to lead a normal life should be stuffed in a jail cell and not released for a minimun of 20 years.

i know personally I don't know how it feels, but I do know what my brother has to endure everyday for the rest of his life. My brother loved James as a brother n vise versa. It is all too heartbreaking knowing that James died that day!! Yea, my brother's been very irresponsible in his life, but this one time he wasn't messed up he was stone cold sober! I feel for James' family n what they've had to go through. Alot of unnecessary pain was brought upon everyone due to a simple accident. Believe me, my brother faces that aweful day every day n will for the rest of his days!

well he evidently didn't learn anything! He had been caught drinking and driving twice since the accident that killed James. He should never again be allowed behind the wheel.
