So glad that no innocent people were injured by this criminal this time. I hope he gets the help he needs before he does injure or kill someone.

I am not defending the man, but people make mistakes. Most people have driven under the influence at one point in their life. I don’t like how we make criminals out of ordinary people who make mistakes. Meanwhile in California you can steal whatever you want and basically serve no jail time.

Back defending the indefensible, I see...

Driving under the influence is NOT a mistake. It IS a crime, and should be punished accordingly.

Stop trying to argue otherwise.

I agree with Enough whoever She/He is.

Driving under the influence is NOT a mistake. It IS a crime, and should be punished accordingly.

That is exactly why I posted what I did.
