My 20 year old cousin, along with another girl, was killed by an intoxicated driver last month. The pain and suffering caused by the untimely and avoidable death of the innocent is truly dreadful to behold. Those responsible should be put away for several years - rather than the piddly driving ban and short (and often suspended) sentence most of them seem to get away with. At best what they do is manslaughter.

Absolutely hate drink drivers. For some reason some soldiers still think its ok to try and get away with it. Hope the guy gets the sentence he deserves... Thoughts with the family and friends of the deceased. Hope they realise that not all soldiers are so bloody selfish and foolish..

I hope that the w@nker goes down for a very long time. There's absolutely no need for it in this day & age. They should throw away the key.
As i live in the region i'll be keeping a close eye on what he gets sentenced to.

My thoughts go out to the bereaved.

The newspaper article said the bloke is a 22 year old Corporal. That's pretty good going really. If he really is a drunk driver (innocent until proven guilty and all that) then he should get banged up for a long, long time.

A bloke today in Swansea got done today for the 18th time for driving while disqualified. http://www.thisissouthwales.co.uk/d...Node=161366&contentPK=17477783&folderPk=88499 F***ing scum should be strung up. :x

In one way, I suppose he spared the victim's families further grief by admitting to it. But I have no sympathy for him though, taking five lives and injuring at least two others for such a shoddy ignorant reason. I can't feeling that he'll get an apt sentence, I hope the guilt and shame will follow him until he has genuine remorse.

Napier - sorry to hear about your recent loss.

Sorry to hear of the familys' loss RIP.

Looks like he was 7BN REME so most probably a tech at that age.

He's on page four.
If you read the text next to the photo it states he's a Lance Jack. Whatever rank he is he's a funkin Knobber. Hope he gets a strict judge (If there's any left)
RIP to all that have lost there lives in this selfish and avoidable manner.

I agree with your sentiments LWH but I would suggest that a similar percentage if not fewer soldiers think it is acceptable to d&d than their civilians peers. There will always be people who try to get away with it no matter what walk of life they come from.

At least he admitted it instead of fighting it.

He admitted it because it means a reduced sentence.

I despise drunk drivers with a vengeance and it is sods law that it never seems to be the drunken b*stard that dies, always the innocent.

First offence should be confiscation of your car (Auctioned with the money going into a central fund for victims of drunk driving scum) along with 6 months in jail.

Second offence. 5 years.

Cause death by drink driving should mean life imprisonment.

RIP to the bereaved.

Rot in hell to the perpetrator.

Gotta say I'm sceptical about his motives admitting too. He's most likley dead to rights and its about a reduced sentence. Agree that similar precentages of civvies will have same attitude but after all, we are suppsed to be living to a set of values and standards and I think we could be doing more as an organisation to make sure our percentage of losers like this is smaller. I am saddened to come across those who have more than one drink driving conviction in their jacket, yet continue to serve. Once is a gross error of judgement and should be punished. Twice, three times is a pattern of behaviour and we can do without losers like that..

Being a monkey, I see all offences committed by soldiers over the past 24 hrs every morning on the RMP SITREP. I must see about 5-6 per week, which is about 25 a month, which in turn is 300 a year.
Whilst I detest drink-drivers with a passion and I would happily string them up, I would suggest that, given the young population in the Forces, this is probably quite a low figure when compared to Civvy St. Unfortunately, drink-driving is still a common offence and there was even a slight rise in offences this Xmas, despite the hard-hitting ad campaigns.
