Letter: Why would anybody be against making habitual drunken driving a felony?

Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, but Tom Silverman’s letter left me wondering:  Why would anyone be “vehemently” against making habitual drunken driving a felony?

This bill would not impose a felony until the third DUI within seven years and for a fourth in a lifetime. Why would a reasonable person oppose such a law?

I found my answer in the Yellow Pages. Tom forgot to mention that he makes his living getting drunken miscreants off with a slap on the wrist.



People who repeatedly put their fellow citizens in mortal danger by their irresponsible behavior deserve to be charged as felons and sent to prison.

As for the lawyers who get them off, I won’t tell you what I think they deserve.
