Then what is it? That is the exact definition of vehicular manslaughter.

What I don't understand is...you can get busted with some pot and get 10-20 yrs in jail but if you kill someone you can be out in 5, or sooner with good behavior. Whats wrong with that picture?
Show me someone serving 10-20 years in jail for pot and wasn't a dealer.

Why is this guy not behind bars? Will he get yet another "slap on the wrist" for killing a second person?

I think he means that getting behind the wheel drunk is no accident.

Well... Looks like the idiot has been arrested and charged with manslaughter.

I wonder if he'll get more than a slap on the wrist this time.
