"His demeanor was unremarkable," said NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.

"His anus, though, will be FABULOUS!" said his future cellmate, Bubba.

swahnhennessy: I'd be happy if gun ownership required the same sort of regulation and registration that goes into car ownership, trolls.



Food for thought: with much laxer restrictions on firearms, a much lower percentage of them are involved in accidents than more restricted vehicles which are designed to be safe. Weird, right?


But what I really wanna talk about is drunk driving. You can't legislate it away. Tokyo is a city of alcoholics. EVERYONE is drunk pretty much daily. Why is the DUI rate so low? Nobody drives. There's plenty of light rail and you can walk all over. Japan has draconian DUI laws, too, but they're bullshiat because the only people who can afford to drive to go drinking can afford a chauffeur as well.

Pittsburgh is also a city of alcoholics. There's no real train service. There's drunks on the road every night. Why? You can't get der from here less'n y'inz drive n'at. In English: there's no way to get from anywhere to anywhere without some road time. Add to this that even without price concerns there ain't enough taxis in the county for even one quarter of the drunks who have to get home for work the next day.

Rather than increase the penalties for drunk drivers, which is like soldiers having their next of kin sue enemy soldiers who killed them, we should install prophylactic measures in society that make it easier for the indulgent types to wet their whistle without driving to and from ye olde public house. First order of business, of course, is better public transport. That will get drunks and potential victims off the roads. Always aim there first. Any other ideas?

As a former native there used to be a bar on every corner that didn't have a church. Now if you insisted on drinking on 51 South or Carrick or up on Mt. Washington you needed to cab or take the chance of killing yourself (fine) or someone else.

HeWhoHasNoName: What is wrong with Fark today?

Two young parents and a baby are dead - DEAD - because of a criminal with an assault vehicle.  This person wasn't even supposed to be driving, much less in control of a car that could exceed the speed limit by dozens of miles an hour.

Yet I see absolutely no calls for sports car control, large capacity gas tank bans, universal breathalyzer-ignition interlocks, or background checks on all car sales.

Surely Fark wouldn't be packed full of such hypocrites.


Surely...


An assault vehicle? Really?

You don't spend any time in the gun threads, I'm guessing.

If this guy is a convicted killer and also did other shiat later including the DUI, why the fark wasn't he in jail for life already?

Some people can't see a difference between something designed for a particular use but can cause harm or death if used with gross negligence and another thing that was specifically designed to cause as much harm and death as possible when used properly.

Yogimus: Mandate criminal back-ground checks on all vehicle purchases.  Already done. what did you think the "credit check" was for?Require transfer of automobiles illegal between private individuals As long as this is all documented and filed with the state, guns/cars should be transferrable. Cars are made to do this, called title transfer/registration. Guns are the next step., and make it illegal to own a vehicle if unlicensed. It is.Make violations of these crimes expensive, to pay for their implementation.The fines are expensive, and they are implemented.


And fishingthesky, you're hilarious.

antidisestablishmentarianism: 2wolves: The penalties don't stop the drunks now. Unless you're talking about multi-decade prison terms your view is doomed to fail.

A Wisconsinite needs this lesson?

GPS monitoring. Farking kiddie porn violators have it harder than drunk drivers.

Drunk drivers get 1 easy pass imho. $5k in fines, 18 months in jail or 3 years on the bracelet. Second offense is 5 years in jail without parole or huber, 3rd offense is 10 years without parole or huber. There are a few guys around the state that are near or past their 10th offense.


And I doubt those people are wealthy. I knew a couple of people in their early twenties who had multiple DUIs but wealthy mommy and daddy got them out of trouble. If I remember correctly, one did end up getting her license suspended for 6 months after the 5 offense or so.

/she doesn't do that anymore, thank god.

Forbidden Doughnut: iheartscotch: I've always agreed with Germany on drunk driving. Driving is a privilege. You get convicted of drunk driving once? No more licence for you; ever. Plus huge fines and 30 days in jail.

[pjmedia.com image 379x214]

Of course, many of my fellow Americans would be butthurt forever if such a sensible policy were ever implemented...


No more Licence ? Really? in which Germany? As far as I know the suspension is for a limited duration for most DUI charges.

Someone shares the responsibility for releasing him to take more lives
