Sad all the way around……….

What’s with all these heartless comments? A head on collision is far from funny.

Did she get read her Miranda rights twice?

Very good Mr. October! You beat me to the punch.

Alcohol impaired driver = slap on the wrist. She’ll get probation for causing life long injuries. If she had been under the influence of tobacco or possessing a single use plastic bag, she would be facing the gas chamber!

I know you’re trying to be funny, but your contention is entirely false.

Kill someone because you’re playing with your phone while driving? 75 days.

If you have to drive drunk, take the “W” approach to driving drunk: drive too slow.

Unless you are a police officer, then drive 100mph+, because you know there will be no real consequences for your actions, just ask the Sheriff Parkinson. Glad to see the type of officers he like to hire, and his attitude towards those who get caught.
