This guy DID NOT do the same thing as Nick Hogan.... Nick Hogan was street racing while sober and his passenger was permenently injured, which in and of itself is horrible. This guy, whatever race, was DRUNK and driving on a suspended license which he lost for previous DUI's. Why is it that people like you and others out there have to make EVERYTHING a fricke race issue. People are people no matter the tragedy and people all over make stupid decisions. Unfortunately, this mans decision to get behind the wheel of a car while drunk has destroyed many lifes. Nick Hogan is an a$$ not a celebrity and I really don't think there is any comparison here. Get over your race problem Mr. Hang Lo

MightyMike, I'm sure the most "mighty" you ever get is from behind your computer screen. It can't JUST be a stupid kid who deserves to spend the rest of his days locked up for ruining the lives 3 victims and their families. Way to bring race/nationality into it.

But ignorance is bliss and racism makes the heart grow fonder.

Ryan,,

You dumb AS* if he were ILLEGAL he would have been deported. Why is it that you people are focusing on the wrong thing? He killed 3 people and injured one because of his drinking problem... I don't see these dumb comments when STUPIT WHITE PEOPLE rape kids or start a Serial Killing Spree. Right so just take your head out your butt Ryan, not only Mexicans Drink and Drive your people do it too.

Anyhow that is not the case I really think he should get more time for begin such a dumb ass and getting behind the wheel.

This is so sad, This happens over and over again. He killed three people, Yes he should have been deported if illegal and if not send him to prison . Now three families morn their loses because of this loser and the United States justice system who allows repeated drunk drivers to continue to drive.

Harvey your an attorney rep the families with the state and put this killer in prison for life.

If a famous person kills a nobody, they get away with it. When a nobody kills a famous person, they get life in jail. No fair! Let's enforce all laws the same, shall we?
