    So this careless drunk killed THREE PEOPLE, ruined their families lives, and only gets five years? Unreal how liberal we are in our sentencing. He should be in prison for LIFE, he blew his chance to live with society, he is a threat to soceity, yet we will let him back out and give him a chance to kill more people. Brilliant!

    death penalty would be the correct sentence.
