    Drunk drivers are right up there with child molesters.

    Lol at trying to appeal the sentence. He deserves life at the very least for killing 4 people out of his own idiotic decision. I'm sorry that an idiot like him is part of the Catholic community.

    I agree with the comment from the family member that he should have wrapped his own car around a pole. Would save the taxpayers some money.

    Appeal? This piece of **** should never, ever see the light of day again. Screw him, he's a waste of blood.

    This dude should have gotten life. Drunk drivers know they're drunk when they get behind the wheel so their actions are no less than premeditated murder. Homicidal Maniacs!!!

    Good work by that judge to call it like it is. I like hearing when our justice system works.

    Exactly. All we need is a legal precedent so we can try these murderers for what they really did.

    He should do his time with dignity and give this sorry state of affairs the respect it deserves.

    Based on the article, his dignity was lost long ago. I wish him a long and miserable time getting acquatinted with the ins and outs of the state penitentary system, and the odd desires of his cell mate.

    If they really wanted to stop drunk-driving, they would make all sentences, even for those who didn't kill anyone, at least 20 years. They make too much money off drunk drivers though, so they don't want to scare them away.

    It may amount to that anyway at age 67, depending on how the parole board treats him down the line.

    I wished they'd give the same sentences over here.

    Pretty sweet how you can get a DUI for having a beer with dinner and driving to the store afterward... I think getting a DUI should be based on impairment level, not on BAC. They need to concentrate on people who are swerving all over the road like this guy, not the dude who goes and has a couple drinks after work and has a .085 BAC.
     
  17. Impairment level is pretty subjective though. Some people can hold their drink and not show a single sign, others are falling around after a single drink. BAC is objective

    Exactly. The dude who goes and has a couple drinks after work and is at .08 isn't really impaired at all compared to the 17 yr old who drinks and gets a .08 and is swerving all over while driving.

    That's what field sobriety tests are for... to test impairment.

    .08 BAC is over the legal limit, and an automatic DUI no matter whether or not you show signs of impairment. You can also get a DUI if you are impaired, even though you might be under .08 BAC. In fact, if you are impaired from ANY substance (not just alcohol), you can get a DUI. "Driving Under the Influence" doesn't just mean booze.
     
  20. I feel terrible about all this, but while reading, I couldn't help but wonder - Is Brizchelle really a name? Wow.

    I agree that he got what he deserved, he seems like a lying, low life scumbag who's trying to weasel his way out of what he deserves by faking pity, so let him rot.
