    Wait.... are you telling us vanilla extract is what is used in Sonic's vanilla shake? Are you kidding me? Do you realize that would make Sonic's Vanilla shake 70 proof? Do you not know what "Natural Vanilla Flavor" is? It's not actually made out of vanilla extract.

    "Drunk" is a very loaded and subjective term. "Legal limit" does not = "drunk". How many here are intelligent enough to understand that fact?

    And even that is besides the point.

    Your racism is evident.

    If the kid blew a .24 he was wasted.

    I used to do this stuff for a living and if you blow a .24 you are significantly impaired. While the outward signs of a .24 are different for different people I can guarantee that your judgement will be off significantly, your responsiveness to various stimuli will be way off and your vision will be substantially impaired. With hundreds of DUI busts I can say for certain that NOBODY who blows a .24 could pass for sober.

    I have no idea why the judge thought probation was a reasonable sentence. It's one of those sentences that rightfully makes sane people sit back and say "Really? How can any reasonable person consider this sentence to be 'justice' much less rehabilitative?"

    I had a DWI in 1985. My BAC was .13, and I was definitely impaired, and could not pass the field sobriety tests. I deserved the jail time I got.

    But, that is beside the point. The legal limit that triggers a "pro se" DWI arrest is .08. He was 3 times that. He had absolutely no business behind the wheel. He committed manslaugther.

    Breathalyzers are based on junk science. Kinda like "lie detectors" and "e-meters".

    And so what if he was drunk? That does not prove that he intended to get in a wreck and kill anyone.

    I'll chime in on this if I may. I have friend in Canada who gave a clean .3 reading a few years ago and was hospitalized immediately. Drunk as far as I know is anything near .20 - This is a 16 year old boy who couldn't possibly weigh more than what? 150? Yeah, it's a miracle he didn't simply pass out and then choke in his vomit before he killed these people.

    I saw the defense attorney use the term, 'affluenza'. Amazing.
    The kid learned a lesson alright, though maybe not the right lesson.

    Re: Teen Sentenced To Probation For Deadly DWI Crash

    I sincerely desire the total financial destruction of the family in civil lawsuits.
    But I know that will never happen because money buys great lawyers, we will find that his parents are really good good good people responsible for creating jobs. And of course this offsets any bad stuff that happens
    Maybe if the parents spent less time making money and more time actually parenting...

    And while I am at it, I am wondering at which point, at which crime does this guy have to admit to, for his defenders to STFU about him deserving a second or 33rd chance?

    So you have some sort evidence for this preposterous assertion about breathalyzers?

    All that anecdote means is that you're a masochist who thinks you deserve to be punished.

    Changing the "legal limit" doesn't make anyone any drunker or soberer. It is just an arbitrary number that kleptocrat leeches use to steal money from other, more productive people. Plain and simple.

    "Field sobriety" tests are also based on junk science just as the "breathalyzer" the "e-meter" and "lie detector" tests. They should be outlawed.
