Re: Cowboys DT charged with Intoxicated Manslaughter

Regardless of whether RGIII or Cousins plays, we're going to find out alot about this team on Sunday. In years past, this would be a "trap game" where we played down to the level of the opponent. I shouldnt even say years past, becuase we played down to Carolina and lost to them. Good teams beat up the bad teams. Cleaveland and Philly arent horrible, but they arent good either. If we are a good team, we'll beat both of them fairly easily.

In the world of quick news flashes, opinionated discourse and negativity, constructive discourse is lost. I think we see a reflection of that, at times, here.
Totallt agree with this. Happens all the time. There are always varying degrees to everything. Your either good or bad, your either a hater or an apologist. Too black and white.

Totally agree with the real punishment thing, but if the judge wants to make an example its going to be with a dude who has done it twice.

Based on limited available evidence, Brent is truly remorseful for his actions. I doubt he will ever drink and drive again. I mean, if you were driving drunk and killed your best friend in the whole world, probably watched him die, would you drink and drive again?
Everything i highlighted is bullsh*t. ive never read more bs in my life. Please just continue.

Ive worked in the court system for about 4 years. I have family members working with CAs.

My friend, a former police officer, just did a 5 year stint for Drunk driving - forget the exact charge. He did not kill anyone but there were people that got hurt. I was under the impression that in alot of states - drug possession and dui carried as much time as did rape or certain degrees of pedophilia?

He's got a drinking problem. I wouldn't throw the book at him but he absolutely needs to be REQUIRED to be in rehab.

Its involuntary manslaughter, not murder. So that's a lesser charge. Someone died, there has to be a charge for that. You can't pick and choose what to charge someone for.

Everyone knows the risks of getting into a car with a drunk driver. Brown paid the ultimate price for his decision. Brent needs to pay his.

Btw, that doesn't mean lock him up forever, or maybe not even locking him up at all, but someone died that night, there has to be some sort of punishment for that. Plenty of people die accidentally everyday. This case is no different.

Every word in your post was bs, which is why i posted that. I think you realize i was being sarcastic and pointing out the sheer stupidity of your assertion that someone who commits intoxicated manslaughter should be in prision for life.

A lot of athletes have drinking problems, and it is a major issue in the NFL. I will almost guarantee that soon in the NFL if a player is arrested for DUI there will be suspensions.

Right. Brown willingly getting in the car doesn't absolve Brent of his guilt. Perhaps it mitigates it in some hard to define social way but Brent still did something wrong that got his friend killed.
