    Terribly sad. A friend of mine was almost killed by a drunk doing 110. My friend suffered severe
    injuries and lost almost 6 months of work, and he still suffers but has to work. No sympathy for drunk
    drivers from me.

    If the story is factually true the murder charge is required, but one hopes whoever sets the
    sentence in that state finds a way to make the punishment as mild as is possible.

    It seems weird that the gun was never located. Hope that raises some reasonable doubt.

    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    I agree with you Hop. While I may have thought about the old west vengeance, I can't act upon it.
    The anguish this Father must be going through is as bad as knowing if he commited the Homicide the anguish still doesn't go away. I hope a plead deal is reached
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Having been where this father is at one time in my own life insanity plea would have been more appropriate. I doubt he was capable of "reflecting" on anything. Except that his two young sons had just been killed by a drunk idiot. Had he lived the drunk would have been charged with double homicide. Matter of semantics and legal mumbo jumbo .

    If he remembers doing it even if he gets the death penalty for it, I doubt he regrets it. Or ever will. Or should. JMO

    I'd have a hard time voting to convict if I was on the jury...
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
