Texas Justice Gone Haywire

September 4, 2008 at 10:16 pm Leave a comment

Drunk drivers are bad.  But there is a time when sentencing for drunk driving becomes excessive and a prison bed that should go to sexual predator is occupied by a drunk drivers.

 

In Texas, I saw a story where a man got a life sentence for a repeated drunk driving.  A life sentence is only merited for sexual predators, three-time serious offenders (like a guy who has three separate charges of armed robbery), kidnappers, or murderers.

 

Stuff like this warrants my attention and I will actually donate money to prison advocacy groups in Texas who are trying to reform the sentencing schemes.  I will not donate a lot but a token $10 dollar donation is my statement that I dislike Texas Justice.

 

(Note;  This story is an example of Texas Justice gone haywire again.  Guy gets 35-year sentence for DUI in Texas.)
