And another one...

What a joke!


If this woman (above) is found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol and then killing a new dad (read article here) - she might get 5 years in prison. 5 Years for taking another life? 5 Years for killing somebody? Is that all Frank van Kampen's life was worth - 5 years in jail? Surely if you kill somebody you should get life, not just 5 years. So for 5 years she'll sit in a prison and pretend to be rehabilitated and pretend to be sorry, and then? Then she'll simply get on with her life and probably do what she did before. What a joke!

See this little baby in this photo?


This little baby will never ever know her dad. Her dad was murdered, killed in an instant because some idiot decided it was okay to drink and then drive. See the family in the photo above? They have been given a life-sentence. For the rest of their lives they have to live with the sadness, the devastation, the heartbreak that this idiot caused. It was no accident, it was deliberate. Did she slip and fall and land with her face into a bottle of alcohol? No, she made the decision to drink. Did she slip and fall and landed in her car and somehow accidentally pushed against the accelerator? No! It was a deliberate decision to get into her car, she put her car keys into the ignition, she closed the door and she drove off, knowing full well that she was under the influence. It was no accident. It was murder. I can't believe that all she might get is a maximum penalty of only 5 years in jail, if she is found guilty - that is just ridiculous!!!

If you drink, then drive, then kill somebody - it is murder - plain and simple.
