Relatives and loved ones of mine have died from tobacco-related illnesses; I cannot understand why mass killers such as tobacco, alcohol and guns continue to be accepted in this society, and I applaud the efforts of anyone trying to fight their devastating destructive power. It is regrettable that this man has succumbed to what might be seen as weakness; it's all too common in this society, but that does not make it right.

Yup because tobacco, alcohol and guns just sneak into peoples houses and kill them when they're not looking.
People need to start taking responsibility for their own actions and live or die with the consequences.

im sorry to hear about your relatives but
tobacco, alcohol and guns are not mass killers, its the people who have them who are the mass killers.
nobody is forced to smoke a cigarette or hold a gun or drink alcohol. people need to take responsiblity for their own actions, quit placing blame.
as far as dickie scruggs. he has done some good things for our community, but he has to pay for his mistakes just like everybody else should.
it about time we have a decent judge who doesnt care who somebody is, but cares about what wrong they did.
