    We had a presentation on why not to drive drunk/high today. Ironic, huh?

    I don't even want to touch alcohol after thinking about this kind of thing - I'd rather be a designated driver. ^_^ I mean, someone's gotta do it and it's best to trust yourself, right?

    Frankly, I think life in prison is a bit too harsh in this case. I'm usually all for extreme punishment, but this dude was drunk. Sure, it was stupid of him to get drunk in a situation where he could end up behind the wheel, but that's not enough to take his entire life away.

    He should have had his license permenantly revoked, been forced to undergo alcohol rehab, and perhaps spend a bit of time in prison...but not life. The man didn't consciously do this.

    he consciously decided to drink alcohol in the first place, so alcohol is not an excuse to be lenient with him
    You that are usually all for extreme punishment, it is funny that you wanna be lenient in this case.... :s

    btw, i am usually for a more lenient approach, so i think life is too much here (though 20 or 30 years would be a minimum)

    In June 2001 Reggie Stephey was convicted of two counts of intoxication manslaughter for the deaths of Jacqui's two friends. He was sentenced to seven years in prison and fined $20,000.
    Pictures of him:



    7 years? he deserve more.

    Here more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacqueline_Saburido

    Its a admirable that she decided to live like that.

    In my opinion, murder is murder, unless it is somehow out of your hands(you are using a handplow, and the blade comes loose and stabs someone, something like that).
    The guy made the *active* choice to drink something that impairs his thinking and inhibitions. Then he made the *active* choice to keep drinking. Then the *active* choice to get in the car.

    Fact of the matter is, it is the same as pointing a gun at someone and shooting them. A gun is harmless on its own, unless someone makes the *active* choice to use it, or, more importantly, to misuse it. The guy, metaphorically speaking, "put that bottle to their heads, and pulled the trigger."



    Fry him.

    He chose to drink. He chose to drive - an impaired choice, but he chose to. He killed people. If he wasn't drunk, he'd get life in prison, right? Why does alcohol make it any different - you control the amount of alcohol, right? It's not an uncontrollable mental disorder.

    In my opinion, that's actually worse - that's a REALLY stupid decision to make.

    His choice to drive can't be counted against him. The man was drunk. People do incredibly stupid things when they're drunk, I know this from firsthand experience. He made the choice to drink, but that's a choice that millions of Americans make on a frequent basis.

    He made the choice to drink something that impairs one's judgement in the first place. More than that, he kept drinking after he felt the first signs of inebriation. Even more than that, he drove to a place to get drunk, knowing he had no one to take him home. What did he expect would happen, would he magically appear at home? The fact that he was already drunk when he got behind the wheel is no excuse.

    P.S. - You might want to lay low for a few days. Several people are pissed you started spamming the forum as soon as you got back...just a helpful suggestion...

    Yeah, you can't judge properly when you drink - so make sure you know what you're doing first. If he was out drinking beer with friends, make a designated driver, and if you don't, then don't fucking think of going out for a drink! And expecting to drive home!
