After sitting in a court room on Feb.,14,2003,listening to a drunk driver plead GUILTY, to an impaired driving causing death charge,It sicken me to think you can drive drunk and KILL a person and only get 3 years,if you kill someone with a gun, you get 25 years.WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?? You still took a life!!! With the system the way it is,Scott Webb,will only serve 1 year.GREAT system..Scott Webb will get three square meals aday, and be free in 1 year,while Mrs.Carol Ryan will be one medication, just to funtion for many years to come,from the loss of her husband Terry Ryan.For anyone to drive a vehicle with 2 1/2 times the legal limit of alcohol and kill someone should get life, NO QUESTIONS ASK!!! The federal goverment really has to wake up and take control of the poor state of the Criminal Code is in regarding impaired drivers.How many more lives are at risk?? MADD durham has a package called TAKING BACK OUR ROADS,to read more about this package go to www.madddurham.org/taking_back_our_roads.htm
THE Nancy Codlin's and Mark Stone's are only part of the puzzle trying to fight this terrible fight against the all the drunk driving .If anyone reads this and just thinks for a minute,what can I do to help?,MADD is always looking for volunteers to help in this fight.
My deepest sympathy goes out to Carol,Kevin,Jamie Ryan and their family.
God Bless You.
