Kiefer Sutherland Arrested on DUI

Kiefer Sutherland was arrested for driving under the influence. What is it with all these Hollywood actors drinking and driving? I’m sure Kiefer is probably a great guy, but one thing that absolutely disgusts me is people driving drunk. I think people who are found driving drunk should be charged with attempted murder and punished accordingly. When a drunk driver kills someone, it should be considered pre-meditated murder.

Drunk driving kills nearly 14,000 people annually and injures countless others. There’s no way that anyone in the US in this day and age does not know that there is a very high likelihood that they will kill or injure someone if they drive while they’re drunk. “I didn’t think I had that much” is not an excuse. If you’re going to drink, don’t drive. It’s really that simple. I’ve not been affected by drunk driving, but I know that if someone in my family was killed by a drunk driver I’d have revenge on my mind. Why are the laws so lenient?

    I don’t even want to see the DUI photo – usually these celebrities don’t get pulled over unless they are so utterly hammered that they look like they should legally be dead.

    Yeah, I know. :mad:

    Why are drunk driving laws so lenient? Probably because our nation’s prison staff are busy plating up meals for the likes of Charles Manson… but that is fodder for another topic.

    Good point.

  5. What’s the matter Kiefer? All that money isn’t keeping you satisfied? Gotta fill that void with alcohol, eh?

    Thank GOD I don’t have to live like that anymore!

    DUI laws are too lenient. Conviction is difficult. The guilty often walk.

    My solution:

    1st conviction: loss of driving privilege for life, in ALL jurisdictions (including flying, boating, etc.);

    subsequent conviction: as it requires total disregard for the consequences of the first conviction (i.e., no driving, period, drunk or sober), life in prison without possibility of parole.

    For such wanton abusers of privilege (which driving is, by the way), perhaps a LUNAR penal colony ought to be considered!

    Thanks for the comments, Michael. I’d like to see your solution implemented. If only we could get some legislators with courage to take up the issue.
