    Now this is a logical / reasoning subject for you?

    Logical and reasonable: considering the statistics - a drunk driver is an accident waiting to happen.

    Logical and reasonable: the imp who wants to drive drunk without facing the consequences doesn't get to school me on the importance of these things.

    We're citing issues of public safety and self-accountability - and you're whining like a child 'but I waaaant to' - grow up.

    wow you assume so much its scary. I don't drink at all....I'll repeat, I don't drink........one more time, I don't drink.

    So you have statistics that drunk drivers are "an accident waiting to happen" ? Please show them to me. Also, show me statistics about all the people who drive drunk WITHOUT GETTING IN AN ACCIDENT.

    funny how you never address my point about the dangers of preventative laws. Maybe if I repeat my argument you'll pay attention this time.

    if you want to lock up people for comitting victimless crimes, you have to prohibit ANYTHING which could lead to a crime, or else you're not being consistent. Being sleepy causes accidents so lets arrest everyone who yawns while driving. I'm serious, studies show that sleep deprivation is just as bad to a driver as alcohol

    90 days in prison for killing someone while driving drunk??? WTF is that about anyway? This guy should be in prison bent over a toilet with a sign that says, "have at it convicts"

    I'm gobsmacked. So a drunk driver kills an innocent person and gets 90 days in jail, and people have a problem with him holding a sign?

    lol cruel and unusual? How so? I suggest that you look up what those words actually mean.

    Agreed. It's strange how sympathetic people can be. For people who really deserve not a shred of sympathy at all.

    It was just an accident. The fines are too excessive. And the therapy is simply too inconvenient.
