    Interesting. I'm about as anti-drunk driving as you can get, but I've found some of these groups a bit over the top.

    Not the most flattering mug shot in the world. Yikes.

    Good. Throw her ass in jail.

    Anyone with a DUI should become an unemployable pariah. You've now proven for all time how selfish, untrustworthy and bad at making decisions you are.

    Anyone. From my mom to Leonard Little to Barack Obama. As much as Ted Kennedy tried to erase what happened at Chappaquiddick with his good deeds later in life, to me it doesn't matter. And I fully recognize how harsh a take that is.

    What about kids who fuck and get DUIs. Should their lives be over at that point?

    Yep. And maybe when the rest of them see the consequences, for themselves and others, maybe they WON'T FUCKING DO IT ANYMORE.

    I'm Catholic, and we are very good with the concept of shame. These assholes should be shamed into never doing it again and would serve as a warning to others.

    I see you're only half a Catholic. Full Catholics are also very good with the concept of forgiveness.

    Practice what you preach. You routinely blanket disparage tens of millions of people based on their political preference, and got a thread locked yesterday when you did it again.

    I'm Catholic, too. I'm also human. I understand the general outrage, considering what can happpen when driving drunk, but there's a lot of disagreement on a definitive list of unforgivable mistakes.

    EDIT: He got that thread locked because the countless number of times blanket statements were made agaiinst the opposing political viewpoint were ignored. Knee-jerk at its finest.
