    I hate it when some damn judge does crap like this to get his/her name in the newspaper for political reasons - and that's what it is all about.

    IMHO shaming, stocks, signs, caning, indentured servitude etc. are far better solutions than incarceration. Dangerous people need to be locked up. Prison is used as a one size fits all solution in America because profits are always the most important thing. We really need to try alternatives.

    Good, but right now, the DOJ's goal is to see that justice is served. By that I mean that rights are respected, laws followed and that our system of jurisprudence is allowed to work as designed.

    90 day jail time was applied...end of story.

    I would support him wearing a shirt that says "I killed Aaron Coy Pennywell while driving drunk," everyday for the rest of his life. Humiliation is a great deterrent. Ask yourself how often you would do something if the consequences would be shame?

    Oh, and the 90 day sentence was criminal. The judge should be jailed.

    Re: Drunk Driver Made to Wear Sign Saying He Killed a Man

    I don't get this thread at all. Someone got behind the wheel of a deadly machine, intoxicated, killed another human being and some of you are aghast that he had to wear a sign around his LIVE neck for awhile and be "humiliated"? Meanwhile, the family of the person DEAD has to go year after year after year missing the person they love because that person is DEAD FOREVER??

    What am I missing??????????

    He is lucky to be alive and out of prison. I think it is an effective and creative way of sentencing. Unusual but not cruel in my opinion.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Is putting your personal desire for a physically and psychologically disconnected state of mind and body while driving a vehicle dangerous or not?

    90 days in prison and holding a 8 hours a day for four days for getting drunk and willfully getting in a car and running someone over is not justice. Its a slap on a wrist,especially considering the fact this is not his first time getting caught driving drunk.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    He already did prison time for this; but it may have been part of the plea. But on some level, it's not too far away from the ol' stockades.
