    Drunk Driver Gets Whats Was Coming To Her

    I just found this on youtube so its probably pretty old. I thought it was nice that someone actually got a severe jail time sentence for killing a cyclist but apparently it takes being drunk and laughing about it before anyone takes it seriously.

    The attitude person who called the killer at the jail is pretty typical of what I hear in many places in the western U.S. While touring down the CA coast I once left a couple of students at a store in Sonoma County. They ditched their bikes and just hung out like "regular" tourists. They were quite shocked to hear a couple of truck drivers discussing how fun it is to scare cyclists either into the ditch or, better yet, off a cliff. This year I had a Frenchman I met along the coast tell me the French have a word for what he experienced in Southern Oregon. It translates as self-hatred.

    Ugh. Good thing she's locked away, but the dismissive comments are disturbing to say the least.

    Yeah, there was a pretty long thread about this B when she got sentenced.

    Too bad that the caller and friend were not given the adjoining cell.
