If the driver had been carrying a quarter bag of weed, he would have gotten 10 years.

Demitrios Matsoukatidis, 67, pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter today for the death of 89-year-old Aldama Lizardo, who was innocently crossing the street in his Astoria neighborhood on Feb 7.

Wait a farking minute. He KILLS a innocent person while driving in a drunken stupor, and gets probation? And a few classes to go to? Is this the worth of a innocent life? Jesus our criminal justice system is broken. A guy gets busted 7 times for dui, never having hurt anyone..and gets life in prison with no parole, this guy KILLS someone and gets probation. It boggels the mind the level of retardation our justice system has in it.

So I'm driving home from work on a dark street, and some senile moron steps out into the street right in front of me. If I'm sober I probably don't get charged with anything. But if I have alcohol in my bloodstream, I'm going to get screwed, even if the guy popped up so fast Ayrton f**kin' Senna couldn't avoid hitting him.

Yeah, great system guys.

Mock26: Sentencing for murder should be based on the remaining life expectancy of the victim. So, kill newborn baby boy, get 75.6 years in prison. Kill a 75 year old man, get 0.6 years in freedom. Anyone over the life expectancy is a freebie.


OK....but what if you kill a 97-year old man? You have some extra time you can cash in if you commit other crimes?

FTA: "A boozed-up Queens man accused of mowing down an elderly pedestrian earlier this year will only serve five years probation and attend a slew of court-ordered programs." ... "Family members of Lizardo are expected to give victim impact statements at sentencing."

How do we know that he was sentenced to 5 years of probations + court ordered programs if the sentencing has yet to occur?

On the other hand, if Lizardo had been a retired cop, especially NYPD, no telling what the sentence would have been.
