don't know how many times I was at the court house where someone had their license taken away and suspended, then walked right out and got in their car and drove away.

Until the law starts to crack down on DUI offenders (my lil brother has three) they are going to continue to be a risk to the communities that we live in.
We have backround checks before buying a weapon, we have drivers test before getting a license of any kind, but we can't seem to keep the people who are not supposed to be driving from driving?
How about, you get caught driving because of a suspended license for some traffic violation, take away the priveledge to drive!!!!

He should have been in jail already. I don't know what the thing is called but after the second DUI they should have to have that thing in the car that you have to breathe into before it will start. If you have alcahol on your breath it will not start. Would save a lot lives.

Until you get the DRUNK politicians to sign off on legislation, nothing is going to change in the long run. Many people will die until it is someone that creates such a public outrage....

A can of compressed air 'used' to work, the newer models are a little smarter.

Repeat Offenders

Perhaps there should be a judicial review of those Judges who failed to permanently revoke Fowlers drivers license and give jail time for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th DUIs. Certainly Judges, like everybody else, should be held accountable for their performance. Consistently do a bad job and you should get fired. I my view the legal system has demonstrated gross disregard for public safety and was criminally negligent in this case.

I guess if he had been a Congressman like Janklow - he would have walked again.

Send the SOB here to Texas. We have an express lane on Capital cases.

That is ridiculous. They have to do something to stop people like that from getting behind the wheel.

I agree...
People should be able to sue the judges who allow repeat offenders off with a slap on the wrist. The relatives of each murdered victim by drivers DUI should be able to sue the judge or remove him from the bench.
