Manslaughter is ... the unlawful killing of another without malice, either express or implied; which may be either voluntarily, upon a sudden heat, or involuntarily, but in the commission of some unlawful act.
I have no problem with drinking, but combined with driving even one can be too many.
Reason number 1 - For those with dedicated sober drivers
Reason number 2 - For those that know they should not drive and take a taxi or hitch a ride with the people from reason number 1
Reason number 3 - For those that are below the limit.
Lastly - The empty parking spots many are from those that were over the limit and left.
My four year old cousin was killed by a drunk a few years ago the accused didn't even serve 6 months, so I have no faith in the system.
if that happened to my cousin id hunt the guy down and then when the cops got me youd have faith in the system
I can have 3 Guinness with dinner over a couple hours and I am legal to drive. Why wouldn't I take my car?
Flip flop???????????????????? What the f**K has gun ownership have to do with drinking and driving? I don't actually recall making any comments about gun ownership recently.
the law should be changed to zero. The SS oh I mean 'police' in Ontario will take punitive action in the form of confiscating your car for 72 hrs and suspending you license as well with no charges even being laid. Sounds like the cops are the judge and jury at the road side.
I think not. I think you could drive and blow under but that is not applicable in Ontario anymore. Especially Torono.
Yeah flip flop. Gun ownership doesn't have anything at all to do with drinking and driving. I don't know if you have made any comments lately or not.
The point is your meaning that took from what you said about guns is that everyone should be judged on their own merit, so if you commit a crime with a gun then you should be investigated and if need be charged. Otherwise it's none of the government's business if you have a gun or what you do with it.
Here you seem to be advocating that the government step in and make sure that no one can have a drink and drive a car that day. For the safety of everyone on the road I guess. Which is exactly a flip flop of your other argument.
Personal responsibility vs the Nanny State. Is this incorrect?
