48hrs is BS. What if that would have been a family that he crashed into. Anybody that gets drunk and drives is a POS, I dont care who you are..

Having a brother who actually did 6 months in prison for multiple DUI's and being a product of an alcoholic home from which I'm still trying to recover well into my 60's....I HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR THIS STUFF...call me sanctimonious if you like but alcohol has destroyed far more homes, marriages, children, careers etc (and we all know that's true) than any other thing in this world. Terribly sad!!
