You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

I say he willingly committed a crime. And he did. He drove drunk. Did everyone forget that DUI is a ****ing crime?
While he was in the ACT of committing that WILLFUL crime, he killed someone. Is it your contention that he did not willfully drive drunk?
That would be the ridiculous comment, not mine.

I find that tremendously distrubing.
Edit: And you had said "The other is just a stupid mistake" A DUI killing is not "just a stupid mistake". It's a thought-out criminal mistake.

I am in agreement with Tucker.
It is worse to accidentally kill a person, while engaging in a dangerous activity, than its is to kill dogs on purpose.

While mice can be pets, people also feed them live to their pet snakes. Also, wild ones can be a nuissance. Not sure where the laws draw the line, but you can expect more sympathy for dogs and cats.
On a personal level, I would never trap a mouse. I feel enough guilt squishing a spider.
