Jesus H. Christ! Lock her up forever and throw away the key! Please place her children with responsible people.

Of course she wasn't hurt. The drunk drivers are the least likely to be injured, unfortunately.

I think people are just tired of all the excuses for the bad behavior. When going to jail or prison was hard labor and not a resort for vacation it acted as a deterrent. Going soft on our children and criminals while at the same time destroying our culture as Christians has also...
