(Des Moines Register)   After getting hit by a drunk driver and realizing one of her friends was dead, a 17 year-old girl crawled out of the wreckage and told the man to call 911. He refused, so she took his keys so he couldn't drive away   (desmoinesregister.com) divider line 294

Indeed.  Not so CSB:  Where I work, we lost an employee to a drunk driver.  Guy was around my age, early 30s, had kids and all.  On his way home at night (was on 2nd shift) some drunk bastard in a pickup truck just completely crossed over the center line and hit him head on.  SOMEHOW the drunk just walked away, even asking police "Oh, did I hit something?"

How is it that the drunks always seem to be the ones to walk away?  Go figure.

You should see when they're illegal immigrants. They disappear and are never seen again. Friend was sideswiped by a pick-up with several migrant workers. Knew what farmed they worked on and everything because they were pulling off a private road. They fled the scene and not a one was ever seen again. She was recently unemployed, had a totaled car, a broken leg, and had 2 children to take care of.

Because their bodies tent to be relaxed and the probably don't see the impact coming, while the victims do, and tense up.

Drunk without a license vs a car full of teenagers..both are likely to cause accidents, but I guess it's easy to tell from the debris and markings on the road who was in the wrong lane when the cars collided.

Alcohol makes you relaxed, so the impact doesn't stress your body so much. You can survive things drunk or asleep that will kill a conscious, sober person.

Seriously, it was a real defense and people got off for drunk driving. They have changed the law a while back.

You pretty much have to drive defensively nowadays, but I also keep my eyes open for cars that fit certain criteria and stay well away from them.  Older cars, cars in various states of disrepair, cars with visible damage, cars with bad exterior customization such as those "chrome" plastic hubcaps people buy at Wal-Mart, badly applied window tints, etc.

It's an easy question.  Do you want everyone in this country who is going to drive to be licensed?

And yes.  A license is not a "service" that you are "entitled" to.  Jesus, that's a shiatty word to be using in this conversation.  Also, everyone pays sales tax.

just think - if we had strict border control laws, and actually applied them -- an honest, hard working, LEGAL citizen would be alive and well today.

If the poor girls family was pro amnesty before, I guarantee you they aren't now.

If the world was totally fair -- they would wait for him to sober up, give him a quick 1 day trial, and publicly execute him. He's going to get a slap on the wrist, and go out and do it again, like most drunk drivers.

I really do wonder when society as a whole is going to wake up and realize just how soft these people are getting off. Nice to know you can kill a car load of innocent people and continue about your life like nothing happened after a few years in jail.

A) It's possible that learning about DUI laws and dangers would have helped.  Unlikely, but possible.

B) It would make people like this a lot more findable if they decide to vanish.

C) I, for one, would prefer drivers in this country to be licensed.  Seems safer to me, in general.

I've been an illegal immigrant and I'm currently a legal immigrant living and working in a country where, if I should lose my job; I'd have 3 months to leave....

Having said that, in my experience, there is very little difference between being an illegal and a legal immigrant.

In either case, short of my going on a killing spree, I know I'm just one day away from leaving this country, never to return.  Any debt, any obligation, any persecution that I'm ever likely to face; would not follow me back home.  It's basically a one-time 'get out of jail free card'.  Within reason.  And even though I am a 'legal' immigrant, like nearly all immigrants, I'm here for economic reasons, not ideological ones.  I feel a much stronger tie to my family and my country of origin than the one I'm working in.  The money I earn, as much as I possibly can, I send 'back home'.  I don't much care about the long term health of this country, I'm just here to work.

My long-winded point here is that I don't think it would matter.  Had this guy been a legal resident of the US - there is little reason to think any of it would be different.  And in the cases where people flee the country - just speaking from my own experience - being in this country legally or illegally would have zero baring on my decision to leave.

If you figure out how to fully secure the border AND kick out all the millions of people here illegally, without spending tens of billions of dollars or using magic, more power to you.

They're here.  They're driving.  If you deport them for applying for an ID, they won't apply for IDs.

There are roughly what, 10 million immigrants here illegally?  Maybe a little under that.  They're not just going to all be rounded up or anything.  That's impossible.  You want them all gone?  That isn't happening.  Deal with the reality we have.
