Well, I have to say, our family was well on the way to forgiveness...(This is Perry Maddux's eldest daughter,) My sisters had spoken to him on the phone, even had dinner with the guy. He professed remorse, cried, apologized, and even said he was ready to serve his time, and accept the consequences of his actions. He admitted his guilt, and held himself accountable, and then HE GOT BEHIND THE WHEEL DRUNK AGAIN. Can someone please explain to me how this happens? I don't get it. Our justice system is a mess, and the judge that is sitting on the bench should be removed. Sometimes a pattern of behaviour proves that "rehabilitation" isn't a viable option. How many people does this guy have to kill before they put him behind bars for good. I like the idea of Alaskan work camp...how about the Gulag? That's good too. I almost called this guy, almost believed that he might change after my sisters met with him, wanted to give him the chance he wanted to apologize...glad I didn't. It's really unfortunate, but this guy serves no purpose in society...he needs to go away. He can rehabilitate behind bars till he's 50. That's what he deserves.
Legalize pot...legalize prostitution...tax the hell out of them, empty our prisons, and throw guys like this away and lose the key.
These are the type of people who are too damaged to be allowed back on the street, to work through their "issues," while putting the public at risk. I am sorry, I don't want to be subjected to this guy while he gets "help," for his substance abuse and rage issues.
My dad paid a steep price for the lack of justice in our "justice" system...if you can even call it that. How many more fathers, mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers have to die before their time before we wake up????!!!
