From Connecticut comes the latest news item fit for the “What The Fuck Is Wrong With You” post category:
Habitual drunk driver goes 83 in a 45 zone, hits a 14-year-old boy on a bike, and kills him.
Drunk driver gets sent to prison for ten years, and sues the parents of the dead boy for negligence, claiming that if they hadn’t allowed their kid to ride his bike without a helmet on that street that day, the accident wouldn’t have happened.
Side note: at the time of the accident, the driver had five DUI arrests, and four convictions. There’s something seriously wrong with a justice system that locks people up for ten years because they owned a plant the government doesn’t like…but some douchenozzle with four DUI convictions on his record can still hold a valid license.
