    This is a very sad story! We need to do more about DUI, there should be stricter laws and more time in jail. I still feel the DUI laws in this state and in this country are still too lenient, when somebody gets arrested for DUI they spend five hours in jail or so and then released, and don’t have to post bail, that needs to be changed, the bail should be high.

    A lot of these deaths from drunk drivers are usually people that have been convicted on previous DUI charges before they finally kill somebody.

    In my opinion this is not manslaughter this is murder, simple as that!

    My sympathy goes out to the three people killed in this accident and their families. This should have never happened. Rest in peace.

    A much more serious problem than gun control. America’s dirty little secret.
