    Re: Cowboys nose tackle Joshua Brent charged with intoxication manslaughter

    I do not condone or excuse Brent's decision to drive drunk, nor Brown's decision to ride with him. Those irresponsible choices led to the premature death of one man, and a career-ending criminal charge for another.

    HOWEVER, Brent will live the rest of his life knowing he killed his best friend and roommate. Those guys had been by each other's sides since college and had roomed together both at school and as members of the Cowboys rosters. I can still feel an immense sadness for Brent while accepting he's ultimately culpable in his friends death....because he did not intentionally kill the guy. Hell, before he realized Brown was dead he tried to save him from the vehicle. He loved the guy; he just made a very, very, very stupid decision. And he'll pay for that decision....whether he serves time or not.

    I don't either and that is difficult in Mexico.

    Now his career is over, and he'll probably serve some time. Sad.
    No, it could NOT have happened to anyone. It could only happen to someone who decides to get drunk and drive, showing utter disregard for everyone else on the road.

    Not at all. I just know that I will be with one or both of the kids, and don't take the risk.

    I enjoy a good 7 & 7. but don't want the risk of an OVI, or the kids watching a good bar fight!

    Well, God forbid you should ever slip up and make a mistake. I hope others would be more forgiving and kind toward you than you are toward this man.

    He did not make a mistake! He chose to drink too much and drive, do you understand?

    Charles Manson and his family also did not make mistakes when they committed murder.

    It was intentional as well.

    Sheesh!

    He didn't intentionally flip the car. That was a mistake. A lot of people drive drunk every year, and nothing happens. 17 million people per year in the USA, actually.

    And the guy who leaves a loaded gun within reach of a 3 yr old didn't intentionally cause the child's death, but it was far more than a mistake. It was negligent homicide caused by reckless endangerment.

    That's what a drunk does everytime he gets behind the wheel. He negligently,recklessly but intentionally endangers the lives of everyone else on the road. That is not a mistake.
