Drunk Driver Still Receiving Benefits!

I have no mercy, no forgiveness for drunk drivers.  They should receive the maximum penalties allowed by law, and even the laws governing drunk driving and punishment for drunk driving are wussy.  Laws should be passed to give no mercy to drunk drivers.  Drunk drivers kill people.

So, let’s consider the Dallas Cowboys’ decision to continue giving benefits to its player who recently was arrested for drunk driving, which resulted in the death of his teammate.  The team’s leadership stated they do not condone drunk driving, and they suspended the accused, yet they are still paying him benefits.

Do you need a clearer example of hypocrisy?

It was reported today before the start of the Cowboys-Steeler game that the Cowboys are giving their poor little misguided player support, which included benefits, even though the player is suspended.  The player (whose name is not important–his crime is) was even on the sidelines, but not in uniform.  I would not even acknowledge his presence if I was there on the sidelines.

There is not a person in this country in possession of a driver’s license who has not heard “don’t drink and drive“, and every municipality from coast to coast is besieged with drunk drivers every night, especially on weekends.

I have such a deep contempt, such a deep disdain (you could even describe it as being “hatred”) for drunk drivers, here are my suggestions for penalties:

If no one is killed:

  • First offense: 1 year in jail, no exception
  • Second offense:  10 years in prison, no exceptions
  • Third offense: 25 years in prison, no exceptions
  • Fourth offense: Life in prison, no exceptions

If someone dies in a drunk driving crash:

  • First offense: Life in prison, no exceptions

Why so harsh?  Did you already forget? >>  There is not a person in this country in possession of a driver’s license who has not heard “don’t drink and drive”.

If one of your relatives is unmercifully killed/murdered by a drunk driver, I challenge you to feel differently than how I feel.

If you consume alcohol, don’t you dare get in the driver’s seat.  If you do, I hope you get caught as soon as possible; before you hurt someone, then spend a minimum of one year behind bars.  Maybe you’ll think differently and never drive drunk again—hopefully never.
