It is my understanding that Mr. Drue had several traffic violations prior to this accident including revocation of his license. It is apparent that Mr. Drue did not understand the consequences of his previous run-ins with the law or laws of safe driving. As a result, put this guy in prison and throw away the key. He is not fit for society. Let him sit in prison for the next 20 + years and think about how his selfish actions were that took the lives of two beautiful young people and affected their families forever. I know this sounds harsh but I have NO tolerance for drinking and driving--this is why (loss of innocent lives). Not only is it illegal to drink and drive, but it is about as selfish as one can be, and illustrates how unbelievably stupid people are who do it--they must have the cognitive ability of a 4 year old. They took a life, now their life should be taken away (legally, by going to prison for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately NYS does not have the death penalty).

I am beyond disgusted that this human being even exists in our society.
