Re: a friend died the other night
All I am saying is be responsible drink at home plan to be stupid. I am not saying "Off with her head," but if you break a law there is a punishment due, be it five years or fifty years. You are responsible for your own actions and say if I robbed a bank because you told me to, then guess who would go to jail: not you.
What I see is that if you are drunk and get behind the wheel you are breaking a law put into place to protect everyone and if a person wants to be self-destructive then play Russian Roulette, because at least you are not taking anyone else with you.
I do feel compassion for the driver, but I feel more compassion for the victims, the ones that she is yet to kill. The fault is not ours to place, but a court of law that in impartial. We cannot get on our "soap box" and proclaim our eternal infinite wisdom and tell others "what is the correct view," I leave that to the court. My opinion is that "You are responsible" no amount of peer pressure, ignorance or blaming it on the "devil" is an excuse. If I got drunk and ran someone over I would expect and deserve what ever the court threw at me, I would know that I was stupid and after my debt was paid I would never do that again. Again, there is NO EXCUSE FOR DRIVING DRUNK, call a taxi, designate a driver or get drunk at home, but NEVER drive drunk. GET THE KEYS, CALL A CAB, BE RESPONSIBLE.
