    Re: Nick Adenhart, Angels Pitcher, Killed In Car Accident

    As much as this site makes me happy, it can make me really sad too.
    This is so sad. Thoughts and prayers with his family, friends, and teammates

    Re: Nick Adenhart, Angels Pitcher, Killed In Car Accident

    Sad, sad story for sure. Any death because of a drunk driver is terrible, but the victim being so young makes it doubly tragic. I remember a few times I drove drunk, back when I used to drink, and there was one time in particular that I cannot remember getting home. It's a MIRACLE I didn't kill someone.

    Edit: So sad for the other two in his car as well who perished.

Bottom line you get behind the wheel,
    drive drunk and kill someone
    Murder 1. Your life is over and you can rot in jail for all I care. Seriously enough of the slap on the wrist and they get out and do teh same thing over and over again.
    You want to stop them from driving? put them somewhere where they never will be able to again.
    Sorry for the strong opinion but I have had friends get killed by drunk drivers and I am tired of seeing the driver get back out on the street and do the same thing over and over. When will it change?

    Excellent post My Sexy Little Pixie.
    I agree wholeheartedly.
    This is a problem nation wide and until people step up to the plate and make our legislators, and judiciary to take this seriously more are going to die.
    The guy who did this was driving on a suspended DL because of a previous DUI.
    Yesterday, here in Bakersfield, a guy was sentenced to 1 year for killing an eight year old while driving drunk.

    Re: Nick Adenhart, Angels Pitcher, Killed In Car Accident

    In the Stallworth thread there were multiple people talking about how his situation didn't deserve prison time.

    Funny those people are silent in this thread when the sports player is a victim rather than perpetrator.

    Murder charges?

    Is there any evidence to indicate he intended to kill these people?
