Repeat Drunk Driver Gets Life

Posted: September 10, 2009 in Uncategorized

Bravo!  The Canadians certainly have it right.  Roger Walsh has been sentenced to life in prison after hitting and killing a woman while he was drunk.  This was his 19th alcohol-related conviction! The judge said the idiot would more than likely commit further crimes, so he made sure that would not be allowed to happen. This total waste of space has 114 total previous convictions for crimes such as breaking and entering, theft, assault, and uttering threats. That’s in addition to the 19 alcohol-related convictions. What an upstanding citizen! This is the first time a life sentence has been handed down in Canada for a drunk driving conviction. Here’s hoping it’s the first of many more. And maybe the judges in this country can take note of our northern neighbors. We sure as hell could use sentences like that here.
