"It was her fault," said the woman, who identified herself only as the officer's mother.

So my son went out and had a couple of drinks. He deserves to have a good time now and then," she said.

Outrageous and insensitive reaction.

Yeah, why did she have to walk in front of the car driven by my impaired son who deserves the right to have fun at the risk of others not ever having any again.

Wow, they should double his sentence just for her ignorance and callousness. I know mothers want to protect their children at all costs, but wrong is wrong, and that's part of what is wrong with society today. No accountability. Blame others for your faults and shortcomings.

Can I get drunk, run her over, and use the same argument? I've had a bad day at work too!

actually a few drinks does not neccessarily mean you are mentally impaired

I have had a few beers before, and everytime, I was fine, and coherent

I know a few people who can take a few shots, and they are still fine also

we do not know the full details, so putting blame right now is uncalled for

maybe it really was the victim's fault?

Are you serious??? If that was your son/daughter/loved one would you have taken her comments lightly? Plus he did have a BAC>.1 and slurred speech when the cops got him.

Its one thing supporting a son, its another thing showing complete insensivity to the situation. Very poor taste and disrespectful on her part.

The insensitivity seems to keep snowballing. Having a few beers and being fine and coherent after, can occur and still render one incapable of operating machinery and equipment to fullest alert level - as in protecting oneself and innocents from danger.
