Yes, drunk drivers are stupid no doubt about that, but when people are drunk, they're bound to do stupid sh!t. It's a risk, and it can lead to death. But people that end up doing dangerous thinks doesn't mean they're terrible people. I don't know Jani but it's messed up cuz the situation could have been worse. It's frustrating.

xWigglesx: I've experienced that. My cousin was killed by a drunk driver who didn't stop at a corner. On one side I hate drunk drivers for being such idiots, but on the other it's sad that they're stupid. People differ. For example, lets say someone you care about could be having a really tough time or maybe they're an alcoholic, and they get wasted and end up hurting/killing someone else/ themselves. It hurts to know someone like that. Now here's the other side: Some random fukk could have just gotten wasted for the hell of wanting to have "fun" and they end up in the same situation. That's frustrating too. That's why I'm angry at them, but at times I pitty some suckers. It's hard. But please don't get me wrong, I agree with you 100%: drunk drivers are fukked.

One of my friends was very badly injured by a drunk driver and someone I knew basically drank himself to death, so I personally dont see much of humour in this news. But since you guys are having a ball I dont wanna ruin it

Just to set the everyone straight.!!
I have lost friends to drunk drivers on both sides of the coin.!
A couple friends that were driving after drinking ended up killing themselves along with passengers in the vehicle.!!
Ive also lost friends that were hit by a drunk driver.!!
I am certainly not making a joke out of this news AT ALL.!!

What I am doing, is being a smarta$$ and trying to poke a lil fun at Jani Lane.! After the trouble he has had with drinking over the last decade.! He should be exactly where he is.!!
Once he gets out of jail, he needs to go into treatment.. again.!!

I too have lost friends to drunk drivers. I also have a friend who is doing some time (3 years) for driving drunk. There are actually poeple here that do more time for driving drunk than those convicted of manslaughter. Sometimes we need to laugh, rather than cry. Crying about it, certainly isn't going to change anything. Having a laugh at Jani's expense hit the spot for me and while others don't see the humor, I think it's hilarious.

Jamez: It's all good man. I had a serious hard on for drunk drivers after my buddy and his 8 month old son were killed by a drunk driver. It wasn't until after I put it into perspective that the healing began.
