Do we think if DWI sentencing was more lenient that more people would stop if they hit a pedestrian who was jay walking ? People are so freaked out by DWI's. I'm saying that's an excuse now, just saying.

What are you saying? That it's OK to drink, drive, hit somebody and get away with a slap on the wrist?

No, he/she probably thought he was seriously injured and wasn't worried about a DWI at the time. More worried about a manslaughter charge

I guess we need more info here. Who was in the wrong. I remember that Greek fella who was killed when we was hit by a car by Tigerland (I think). No charges because the Greek walked out in front of a car.

I hope Mr Matt gets well soon.

This is really a good point and food for thought.

I can't even imagine hitting a person and driving away. But I can see a drunk a-hole thinking that he is fricked if he stops. He is wrong in any hypothetical situation if he is drunk and has no chance of innocence.

Having said that, imagine a drunk stumbling in front of you when you are going too fast to stop. Let's say that you drank 4-5 beers earlier in the day. You shouldn't drive but you did. Happens every day and night. You are legally drunk but someone else was drunker and you slammed into them with a ton if steel.

You stop. You help. If you are any kind of worthy human being, you call 911 and do your best to administer first aid and await the ambulance and your arrest.

Any other action is the action of a rabid animal that doesn't deserve to be breathing the same air as the rest of humanity and needs to be put down for the good of humanity.

Prayers sent for the poor guy that got hit.

Whew. I gotta take a deep breath before addressing this stupidity.

If DWI sentencing were more lenient...

You mean $1500 fine and a few hours in the clink for first offense? You don't even need a competent lawyer to get the first one reduced to careless & reckless and the second to be charged as a first offense. So no, DWI sentences aren't really that big of a deal. You know what's a big deal? VEHICULAR HOMICIDE. Thats why the driver took off. As it stands he/she will be caught and charged with felony hit and run, negligent injuring and a litany of other charges. But they won't get a D dub! So... There's that. THIS is his/her future.

This thread is not really the place to discuss DWI laws.

Best wishes on a full recovery and I hope they catch the TPOS that did this. Then find a judge that will do his job and put said TPOS away.
